a professional learning and retreat center

Welcome to The Nest; a 6,200-ft home/workspace laid out across three massive levels of floor space, brought to life through the vision of best-selling author and educator, Dr. Trish Hatch. “NEST” stands for Nurturing Educators through Selfcare and Training, but the space offers a formidable environment to any professional organization or group. It is meant as a place for teams to grow, minds to learn, and lives to be forever changed.

Visitors will have every opportunity to think their best and engage with others, whether hanging out on the 100-foot deck in an egg swing, sitting at one of our nine traditional workspace desks, or lounging in an ultra-comfortable living room
space with amazing views of San Diego Bay and downtown.

After the work day is done, you can enjoy overnight accommodations and onsite amenities such as our dry sauna, yoga room, a 7-seat theater room, or even schedule an in-house masseuse.

Group meetings

Our middle level Great Room offers comfortable seating for 20+ attendees on modular couches and comfortable conference style chairs. Adapt to your needs! The 82" high-bright, Roku-enabled Smart TV allows for direct laptop connectivity, so everyone in the room can take part. For smaller, more private gatherings, our conference room seats 10 and is perfect for sales meetings or board presentations and includes a 62" Smart TV with laptop hookups, as well. Our technology room includes nine moveable work desks, each with a whiteboard surface; a projector and projector screen; a large white board for instruction uses; and portable carts with 32” Smart TVs for larger screen needs.

After the meetings are done, your group has the option to stay overnight in one of our four bedroom areas. Every room is equipped with either a comfortable pillow-top or memory foam mattress and ultra-soft sheets. Three bedrooms include a en-suite bathroom, with another that easily converts to a private bath. With the additional roll-away beds, this home can accommodate up to 14 individuals.


Fun activities can break the ice and promote a better end result. Take advantage of our wine cellar for a unique dining experience or watch a movie in our seven-seat home theater room, which offers reclined leather seating, an 82" Smart TV and hi-fidelity surround sound. Experience amazing views of San Diego from our 100-foot deck, overlooking Liberty Station and San Diego Bay, with a skyline view of downtown. It’s a perfect spot for drinks and an end of the day chat.
