You have questions. We have the answers. 

Do you have questions about planning your church retreat? We have the answers you need. 

We take reservations up to 12 months in advance. This gives our existing groups the first option to rebook for the following year. If you are interested in booking a retreat more than 12 months in advance, you are still welcome to contact us to tell us about the retreat details you are looking for.  We will place you on a “wait list” and then follow up with you once we know about availability.

The minimum group size is 30 persons in bunks and 21 in lodge/private rooms. For cabins, there is no minimum group size (the cabins can be rented individually).  The maximum group size (comfortably) is 450 persons, but we will allow for larger groups in certain cases (we have capacity for up to 515 overnight guests). Talk to reservation staff for more details.

If you have less than 20 persons and are interested in a retreat at RMC, please call and talk to the reservation staff at 1-888-353-1490. There are certain times when we will lower the minimum number of people in a specific group, and/or we can look at blocking several cabins to accommodate your group.

Planning a successful event can be a lot of work. There are lots of details to manage and decisions to make. We appreciate the effort that the Group Leader puts into making the event a success, and as such, we will honor them with a FREE GROUP LEADER STAY on the event (min of 20+ persons, 2+ nights, does not apply to some cabin retreats). There is a “catch” though. For us to give this credit on the invoice, we require the following 2 things.

  1. Your Preliminary Retreat Schedule must be submitted at least 6 weeks before your event. It must be finalized at least 4 weeks prior to the event.
  2. Your Final Numbers for the event must be submitted at least 2 weeks before arrival.

Our team will work with you to try and qualify you for this discount. Having this information in this timeframe is essential for us to be well prepared for you when you arrive. The details of this discount will be listed on your contract. Feel free to also talk with our sales team if you have any questions about it.
