    What types of groups do you host?
We are happy to host womens and mens groups, church councils, business meetings and conferences, youth events, camps and gatherings. We do not offer single-room rentals or walk on room housing as a typical hotel might. The majority of our guests are from church and non-profit organizations.

   How do I book a retreat?
We encourage you to give us a call or drop us an email with your basic information... how many you expect, and preferrably several dates which might work for you. For special requests or for rental requests longer that the typical weekend, we will work up a special package just for you!
