Stay in MN

Sheets, Towels and Lives Changed Daily.

boutique hotel edinaThe smallest act of generosity can change a life. Who ever thought you could make a difference simply with your choice of where to stay – for work or for pleasure. Now you can.

Erik's Retreat is a first-of-its-kind living, working and social environment for young adults with autism who operate boutique-style guest accommodations. What sets Erik’s Retreat apart is that not only do members call the Retreat “home,”but they actively help run our hospitality operations as concierge staff, tour guides, gardeners, artists-in-residence, chefs – whatever their passion -  all while serving discerning guests like you. It’s a reciprocal relationship, and the first groundbreaking model of its kind in the nation. It’s a new kind of philanthropic giving where simply booking a room is helping transform the lives of this deserving population forever. Because of you, our staff is no longer part of the statistics. They are no longer adults with autism who are un- or underemployed regardless of their IQ or education. Instead, they are employed doing what they love.

You can choose another big, lookalike hotel, but consider this: You have the power – through the simple choice of where to stay – to do more. And let’s talk comfort: Free WiFi. Apple TV. Complimentary breakfast. A pillow menu. A friendly staff and fresh wine awaiting you. Get the accommodations you want and feel great knowing that where you sleep can make dreams come true.
