Welcome to Cranaleith

If your organization, nonprofit, business, school or hospital needs a tranquil, non-traditional setting to do its planning, team-building or mission re-kindling; if your staff needs a "get-away-from-it-all" space for respite or re-focusing; if you need a contemplative environment where you can revisit and reinvigorate your values and refresh your spirits; or if you need a beautiful sanctuary where your marginalized clients can explore their hopes and potentials... you are welcome here.
