Find Your Zen in the Heart of the U.P.: Exploring the Labyrinth at Garden Grove Retreat & Lodging

Nestled in the serenity of Michigan's Upper Peninsula, Garden Grove Retreat offers more than just cozy lodging and picturesque scenery. This historic property, formerly known as the Marygrove Retreat Center, boasts a unique gem – a medieval labyrinth.

Imagine stepping away from the daily hustle and immersing yourself in a peaceful walk. Unlike a maze, a labyrinth has a single, winding path that leads you to the center and back out again. The medieval labyrinth at Garden Grove Retreat offers just that – a chance to unwind, de-stress, and reconnect with yourself.

As you meander along the path, surrounded by the beauty of the surrounding forest, let your thoughts flow freely. Perhaps you'll use this meditative walk to problem-solve, clear your head, or simply appreciate the moment. The labyrinth is open to Garden Grove guests and customers, providing a contemplative space for spiritual renewal or simply a quiet escape. Bring a latte from Grove Coffee & Cafe to increase your focus and enjoyment!

For history buffs, the labyrinth adds another layer of intrigue. Medieval labyrinths were often used for pilgrimage and religious reflection. Garden Grove Retreat's labyrinth evokes a sense of peace and tranquility, making it a perfect complement to the retreat's focus on relaxation and rejuvenation. In late May or early June, the crabapple trees that surround the labyrinth bloom in a burst of pink and white with a sweet scent that can only be experienced.

This is also a favorite location for memorable weddings and receptions, with the labyrinth serving as the wedding backdrop, or the reception's dance floor.

So, on your next visit to Garden Grove Retreat, take a break from the usual itinerary and explore the labyrinth. You might just discover a hidden gem for reflection and inner peace in the heart of Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Make your reservation online today or call 231.622.5026‬
