As we were coming home from seeing the bonfires on the levee Christmas Eve, I ran across the gem. It is "Manresa Retreat". I had never heard of it. It is beautiful. I am not sure if I can get inside to shoot it. This was taken from the front gates. Its about 20 miles from my house

A quick google turned up a general calendar. Looks like there's an open house December 14, as well as a tea, concert, and in late spring, a gardening event of some kind. Otherwise, why not give them a call or email them? Maybe they have days where they would be willing to allow you to photograph parts of the buildings and grounds.

Very nice, and hoping also that you get in for some interior and grounds shots.
