Penuel Ridge is a special place where a small group can withdraw for rest, renewal, and recharging, either for the day or overnight. Penuel Ridge can accommodate up to 18 people overnight, more if you choose a camping option.

Small groups may reserve our facilities for their own self-guided retreats. You can stay overnight, do your own cooking, or have meals catered by a vendor of your choosing. A church staff, a group of officers, or a team of co-workers will find this a good spot for coming together to work or play.

Group rates are $49 per person per night. Day rates are also available.

Deposit (50%) is due when reservations are made; Balance is due 20 days prior to retreat date.

PLEASE NOTE: Our cancellation policy is outlined on the Accommodation Brochure, which can be viewed and/or downloaded via the link provided below.

The Well

The Well is Penuel Ridge's defining structure. One of the first buildings in Tennessee made with straw bale construction, The Well provides a serene space for prayer, contemplation, meditation, yoga, and music. It is always quiet, always comfortable, and always available.

The Well

The Well is situated in our central meadow and surrounded by beautiful flowers and sculptures.

Interior

It is hard to describe the inside of the Well. Pictures do not capture the serenity that infuses the space.
