Breitenbush Hot Springs Retreat & Conference Center (pronunciation: BRIGHT en BUSH), is a worker-owned co-op featuring holistic and spiritual retreats. It is surrounded by the Willamette National Forest in Marion County, Oregon, United States, 10 miles (16 km) east-northeast of Detroit along the West Cascades Scenic Byway and 12 miles (19 km) northwest of Mount Jefferson. The closest metropolitan area, Salem, is approximately 60 miles (100 km) to the west. The retreat center is located at the site of the historic Breitenbush Hot Springs, which drain into the adjacent Breitenbush River.

Breitenbush was evacuated and suffered considerable damage to the cabins, summer homes and other facilities in early September 2020 due to the Santiam Fire. Breitenbush reopened in early 2021 with limited guest housing available and is continuing to rebuild more structures for guests and staff alike.

  • We have been to many retreat centers and this one is at the top of the list. The grounds, cabins and pools are impeccably kept. Gift shop is glorious (although we didn't purchase anything). Showers....  more

  • We went for our first visit since the fire. Driving in and reading the fire wall is heart breaking, but the experience is still amazing. They lost a lot of cabins, and things are in flux, but it is yet a peaceful retreat with most excellent hot water. The library was sacrificed for overnight guests and the food service worked differently but we easily found other places to lounge and thought our lunch was as delicious as ever.
  • Great experience. We will go back for sure. However, if you have a food allergy beware! When we were there they served a gluten free bread, and we thought, wow this is the best gluten free bread ever! Turns out it wasn’t gluten free. I don’t think they are very strict on their food allergy practice . Be careful. Other than that it was a fantastic time.
