Wiawaka is covered in a thick blanket of fresh white snow but before we know it the ice will melt, the gardens will bloom, and we'll all be enjoying Wiawaka once again. Please visit our calendar for a listing on summer programs, registration is going on now!

The Wiawaka Center for Women has been enriching, inspiring, and celebrating, the growth of women through unique and relevant programming for over a century. A stay at Wiawaka offers a restorative experience in a natural and peaceful setting and includes healthy, fresh meals, fitness programs, art workshops, and more!


Wiawaka is located on one of the most beautiful properties on Lake George and conveniently close to Lake George Village. Founded in 1903 as a retreat for women, Wiawaka today still offers a peaceful getaway. A stay at Wiawaka is a respite from the hectic pace of life. Plan to come for a workshop, the day, an overnight or more!
