Haven on the Lake continues to evolve!

The mind body wellness retreat in Downtown Columbia remains the place to go to help you escape the stresses of everyday life while you relax, recover and renew. But we’ve added a range of class options to our schedule in recent years — including barre, dance, TRX® and circuit training. We’ve also opened a conference room to provide you with more rental options and experiences.

Some of the opportunities at Haven on the Lake cannot be found anywhere else in Howard County.

Take a look below to learn more about what you can find:

Circuit Training

Haven offers both land- and pool-based circuit training classes to help you get maximum results in minimal time. Each efficient 45-minute session involves a variety of conditioning and muscle-sculpting exercises using equipment such as TRX suspension trainers, Pilates chairs, and more.

Cycling Classes Come with an Aquatic Spin

Haven is the only place in Howard County to offer Aqua Spin — an aqua cycling class that uses special HydroriderⓇ bikes. This rejuvenating class offers a full-body workout that will leave you both spent and energized.

WatsuⓇ Therapy

Available by appointment only, Watsu is a gentle and powerful form of aqua therapy performed in warm water by a certified Watsu practitioner. It combines elements of zen shiatsu, meditation, tai chi and yoga. During a session, you are continuously supported while being floated, cradled, rocked and stretched. Healing possibilities include stress reduction, pain relief, lower blood pressure, improved memory and cognitive functioning, decreased symptoms of anxiety and depression, release of muscle tension and more.

Sessions are $130 for 50 minutes. For additional information, please email

Host a Private Party, Team Retreat or Even Tie the Knot!

Haven offers a serene environment and multiple options for your group’s event.

Our conference room is a beautiful space that is ideal for corporate outings, meetings, training seminars, workshops and small private parties. Conference room rentals also include access to Haven’s healing environments, which include a hot tub, pool, steam bath, crystal salt therapy room and more.

One couple took advantage of Haven’s gorgeous backdrop by getting married on the veranda overlooking Lake Kittamaqundi. Read their story here.
