Be at Home in the Heart of Nature

There’s a feeling of genuine warmth and caring throughout McLean. It’s pervasive. It’s real. You feel it in the air. You see it in the smiling faces all around you. Everyone treats one another like family. They connect with the world around them. They laugh and have fun. Explore and grow. They’re free to be themselves.

Opportunities to live well are boundless.

Countless enriching programs, events, trips and classes are yours for the taking, or you can just kick back and spend the day however you see fit.

Even with all the advantages and possibilities to enjoy on our serene, nature-filled campus, you’ll find just down the road all the unique dining, shopping, cultural and community events, and historical landmarks of the storybook town of Simsbury and beyond.

Nestled on 125 pristine acres filled with towering white pines and unspoiled wilderness, there’s a natural beauty to life here.
