Sabbatical Retreat

A Sabbatical Retreat is for ministry leaders, individuals or couples who simply need a break. This could be for a wide range of reasons. Maybe you’re a couple who needs some time to step away without the kids, you need some healing time after a loss, or a time of spiritual reflection and renewal. Perhaps you are engaged in some professional support and you’ve been given some ‘homework’ from your therapist that you’d like to focus on for a few days. We don’t have specific parameters for a sabbatical retreat. Whatever your life situation is, you will benefit from the privacy of our facilities and the surrounding area. If you are interested, materials are available to prompt and guide you as you heal, journal, and process your experiences.

Group Retreat

Ballast Lodge is an ideal getaway place for small groups that want to meet and grow for several focused days together. Our accommodations include 4 bedrooms (three with queen beds, and one with a double bed), plus a pull-out couch and plenty of space for air mattresses. You could even bring a tent, if anyone in your group prefers to sleep outside. The dining room in the Guest House comfortably seats 10 adults, but you can pack in a few more than that if you like!

Family Gatherings

We understand that for many people, family is of utmost importance.  We invite you to incorporate Ballast Lodge into your plans and enjoy the benefits of our resort-like setting. Feel free to utilize both the Guest House and the Cottage for an extended family retreat.
