Cottages

Tucked away, yet in the heart of the camp, Dogwood and Creekside Cottages are ideal for a family, a personal retreat, or lodging as part of a larger group retreat.

Creekside Cottage

Creekside is located against the mountainside next to Capon Run where the soothing flow of water can be enjoyed from the screened porch. Creekside is totally out of the way of traffic, and yet is a stone’s throw from the perimeter trail which leads to the lower camp in one direction and the upper camp in the other.

Creekside Amenities

  • One bedroom with a queen size bed. The sofa in the living area pulls out into a twin bed.
  • Linens are provided (sheets, pillows, blankets, and towels).
  • Small furnished kitchen allows guests to make their own meals. Includes a refrigerator, range, stove top, microwave, and basic general use items.
  • Fully winterized and air conditioned.
  • This cottage is not available for rental mid-week when Highland Summer Camps are in session (mid-June thru early August).
  • As part of our calling to serve the church, full-time pastors seeking a personal retreat can reserve Creekside cottage for free.

Creekside Policies

  • Check-in time is 6pm and check-out time is 2pm, unless other arrangements are made with the camp staff. When another group is not using Creekside, a group may often come earlier than the normal check-in time or may stay longer. Guaranteed extended check-in/check-out times can be arranged with the office for an additional fee, based on availability.
  • Smoking, alcoholic beverages, firearms, fireworks, pets and all-terrain vehicles are prohibited anywhere on Highland Retreat property.
  • Room furnishings, blankets, quilts, towels, linens and pillows are not to be removed from the rooms.
  • All camp quiet time is 11pm. Early risers should be considerate of other guests.
  • Groups are responsible for general cleaning before departure. Floors should be free of all litter. Meeting room furniture should be returned to designated areas. Turn thermostats down or air conditioners off, turn bedspreads down on beds used, and leave camp towels hanging on the towel bars to dry upon check out. Outside grounds should be clean of litter.
