Sacred Grove Retreat Center

Burlington, ON – Sun-Mar is excited to partner with the Sacred Grove Retreat Center to provide its guests with richly appointed bathrooms incorporating the category leading Excel composting toilet, in a captivating wilderness environment.

Nestled near the Uwharrie National Forest and Morrow Mountain State Park are eleven wooded acres of serenity for those in search of it. Located in Gold Hill, NC is Sacred Grove Retreat Center. Under the care of Ellen Whiteside and Murphy, Sacred Grove’s “hospitality host” dog, Sacred Grove offers a quiet place to rest and relax for human and animal companion alike.

Sacred Grove Retreat Center offers a plethora of amenities for visitors: scenic hiking trails; the Labyrinth, a place for walking and meditation; Butterfly Garden; and a Ropes Challenge Course for team building exercises and leadership development. There are six comfortable climate-controlled houses, cabins and yurts on site to choose from, depending on the purpose of your stay and the size of your party. All six are available for rental for business or vacation use all year-round.

With the retreat’s focus on taking care of oneself and the environment around you, Sun-Mar’s premium Excel toilet was the obvious choice. The capacity of the Excels were more than enough to handle the usage by guests at the center without damaging the environment, protecting the lush wilderness but still providing comfortable bathrooms

Rehan Shah from Sun-Mar’s sales team could not be more enthusiastic about Sacred Grove Retreat Centre.  “We have a great relationship with Ellen and Sacred Grove. She has been a reliable and dedicated partner of Sun-Mar’s for many years and after years of using the toilets even became a seller of them when guests expressed interest.  I have no doubt that with the many amenities offered to guests at the center, the pristine location ensures that they have a magical and serene experience.”
