The Clearing is a 75-acre, mostly-wooded retreat in rural Amelia County, Virginia that was gifted to the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) Richmond Meeting by the late Louise Whittington. Facilities include a modern lodge with a new, large multipurpose room, a smaller meeting room, full kitchen and two bathrooms; a large sleeping cabin; a smaller cabin; an Adirondack shelter; campsites; two outdoor privies; a worship circle with fire pit; a picnic pavilion adjacent to the large clearing; and trails with access to the adjacent Amelia Wildlife Management Area.
The Clearing may be rented for daily use or overnights. When you rent the Clearing, you and your group will be the only ones on the grounds during your rental period.
You may rent the Clearing for a solitary retreat for a single person, for a family event, or for a group event.
