Nestled within hidden inlets of the Long Island Sound in Darien Connecticut our guest house is located on a tranquil 10-acre property overlooking the water, offering a peaceful and spiritual environment for retreats or getaways, with woodland walks, gardens, stone hermitage, and a private dock with an adjacent bathhouse. Our Guest House is opened all year round with various spaces for individuals and groups in addition to meals for the day and overnight guests.

Our Mission


Unity is our mission. Namely, the re-establishment of unity of all Christians in accord with the ecumenical principles of the Vatican Counsel’s very own reaction to the sorrowful prayer of Jesus: 


"Father, that all may be one. Hasten O Lord, the union of Christians: hear the prayers of your humble Bridgettine which are consecrated to you for these intentions."



Our Vikingsborg Guest House is a popular setting for artists and academics, as well as those who just want to get away for a while.

Comfortable single and double rooms with private baths are available, most with breathtaking views of the Long Island Sound.


Our Guest House offers the perfect setting to hold your group or private retreats.

The Sisters  welcome members of all faiths who desire a place of rest for inner renewal. Singles, couples, families and groups. 


If you are discerning a calling to the religious life and would like more information on the Bridgettine Order, we welcome you.


Or if you are a lay person with a desire to grow closer to God as a Oblate of the Bridgettine Order.

Gospel of St. Mark



"There's something very special about this place.  I love visiting...sometimes for Mass and sometimes just to get away from the hustle and bustle of my busy life.  Everyone I've brought here has left with a renewed sense of peace and purpose."
