St. Columban Retreat Center


I rented The Columban Fathers Retreat Center to host a small family dinner after my daughter’s wedding. Covid-19 changed our plans of having a big wedding and reception. Dyanne, the Retreat Center Coordinator, went out of her way to accommodate us. She even made sure the grass was freshly mowed and the inside was cleaned a second time.  

This place is a hidden treasure! It was perfect for what we needed. First of all, it is tucked away in a little area of paradise, right in the heart of Bellevue. 

The grounds are beautiful. The retreat center was spotless and smelled fresh and clean. There is a catering kitchen with a huge refrigerator. The room is large, with several tables. There is an audiovisual system available for a nominal fee.

The photos that were taken on the Columban Fathers grounds are priceless. The photographer even captured photos of several deer! 

I will treasure the wedding photos, along with the memories that were made that day.
