Getaways for Families and Individuals
Come to Highland to enjoy a personal retreat surrounded by our forests, trails, streams, and inspiring mountain vistas. Or bring your family or some friends and enjoy time with each other in the midst of God’s beautiful creation! We have several lodging options for small getaways, and plenty of outdoor activities for you while you are here. If you're a pastor, make sure you check out the information about pastoral stays.

Mountain View Retreat Center rooms
This building has 14 motel-style rooms, each with a queen bed, two twin beds, a bathroom, and a small fridge. The building is most often reserved by larger groups, but any extra rooms would be available for individuals to rent. Groups of under 20 people can have access to the Crestview meeting room and kitchen if they reserve 4 of the bedrooms. Heated and air conditioned for comfortable lodging year-round.
Lodging Availability for Getaways
Use the calendar below to see which facilities are booked and which might be available. Note that seasonal facilities are not bookable over the winter, and no facilities are bookable more than 2 years in advance. These calendars are updated about once a week (usually Friday mornings), so it is possible that a facility that appears available has been recently booked. If you request a reservation or a quote, Highland staff will be able to confirm if the dates you are interested in are in fact available.
Pastoral Stays at Highland
Did you know? Highland Retreat has a commitment to offer free personal retreats to pastors and their families, usually in one of our cottages, as a way to encourage wellness in the broader Christian church. Anyone who works as a pastor in any Christian church can come to Highland for a time of refreshment and reflection and enjoy completely free lodging. These free stays cannot be used as part of a larger church gathering; they are meant to be individual getaways, where pastors can get a break and return to their churches feeling rested and renewed. There are some limits to how long and how often these pastor’s stays can be, and scheduling will depend on the facilities being available. But if you’re a pastor, you can come to Highland every year if you’d like! Make sure your pastor knows about these free retreats, so this blessing can be shared among many congregations and faith communities.
What an amazing cabin! Thank you. The hiking trails are wonderful and well marked. It was nice to get away for some prayer and reflection time.

These quiet days at Highland were just what my soul needed. Creekside provided a lovely warm place for reflection. I spent a lot of time on the trails – it is such a gift to soak in the beauty of creation. Thank you so much for these restful days to listen and be with God.

Pastor couple in Mountain View Retreat Center, October 2022
What an incredible time of deepening into creation, both around and within ourselves, and between us. The ripe persimmons were a special treat and our almost-daily walks through the pines is always my heart-melting place. Your most generous gift of this place for our more-than-usually-weary souls is overwhelming. Thank you so much.
