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.
