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.
