|We are a group of dedicated professionals that care about developing land for its future homeowners as well as keeping the environment in mind. Retreat Associates was formed in 1993 to purchase Divine Word Seminary, which was owned by the International Society of Divine Word. The building had been used as an educational training center, complete with dormitories for priesthood.
We purchased this land and gave our solemn promise to do everything possible to maintain its original beauty and natural environment. We hired prominent land developers to design a master plan that would compliment the tranquil environment. A suitable master design was chosen, which preserved hundreds of trees. The result is The Sanctuary.
Today, we continue to be dedicated to the preservation of this picturesque parcel of Wood County Ohio history and have made every effort to enhance the setting accordingly.
An architecture control committee approves the design of each potential home to assure the continued quality of this beautiful development we call The Sanctuary.
