“Come and let us go up to the Mountain of the Lord”

 Our founders, the Dornbierers made sure that all 375 acres on this part of the Blue Mountain range remained available for churches and families alike all year round! God gave them a vision to be a blessing to all of God’s children. We carry out their legacy by making ourselves available to personally answer all questions about holding church retreats or ministry conferences here on God’s mountain. You also have the option to attend one of our Blue Mountain events so your family can be ministered to by our anointed guest speakers and Children’s Ministry staff.

A Wide Range of Retreats​

You can host your own day, weekend, or week-long group retreat in one of our multiple meeting spaces. Our special Group packages include nights of lodging, delicious buffet-style meals and meeting rooms. Our facilities provide a variety of settings, sleeping up to 400 guests. Due to our various types of groups, we have several units containing certain accommodations that could fit family, youth, women’s, and men’s retreats alike. We have single bedroom style units, efficiency apartments, 2 & 3 bedroom units, hotel-style alpines and even dormitory style units that sleep up to 32 guests. All our lodging facilities have heating as well as air conditioning coupled with private baths. Year round weekend guests join us from New York City, New Jersey, Connecticut, Philadelphia, Lancaster, Baltimore, Washington DC, Florida and everywhere in between! Flying in from all over the U.S. is common with Lehigh Valley, Philadelphia, Newark and Baltimore airports within driving distance from the Mountain.

We have Summer Family Weeks that focus on worshipping with other families here on the Mountain in Spirit and in Truth!
