Welcome to the Carriage House!
The Main House Where We Live is Right On the Property
Where sunsets and sunrises inspire!
Welcome to the Carriage House! A retreat house in the rolling green hills of Iowa.
(If you want to just cut to the chase, go to RESERVATIONS tab.)
Why did we create the carriage house rest? To have time alone, especially to be with God for prayer and solitude . It can be used for either personal, private, small group or ministry team retreats. Day or over nights stays encouraged. Both lay and spiritual professional use the house for ministry and personal purpose. It can sleep 5-6 comfortably but could handle 8 people with 4 private sleep areas
It's not a B&B, not a hunting cabin, not a spa or party cabin.
Each of the three bedrooms are furnished with SUPER comfortable beds and sitting chairs and all have a writing desks for your study time. The upstairs has three separate rooms for individual space and the downstairs is one large open space with plenty of room to stretch out. There are multiple places outside we have created to sit and enjoy the great outdoors. LADIES ,YOU MAY NOTICE THE ABSENSE OF MIRRORS IN THE HOUSE EXCEPT FOR THE BATHROOM. :) THAT IS INTENTIONAL. We want you to turn your eyes toward the Lord, and off of yourself while here. All amenities provided so you are not roughing it! Read on!
The Carriage House Retreat is a peaceful place of rest meant for adult individuals and small groups seeking time away to nurture their spirits. Nestled on 40 acres of private Iowa farm land and set atop the highest elevation in the county, this location features beautiful views as well as woodlands.
