Regather With Friends in Spacious, Restful Facilities

What We’re Doing During This Season To Help You Reconnect

Refreshing Mountain recognizes the need to think differently about retreats during the COVID-19 pandemic. Nevertheless, the importance of providing space for meaningful re-connection among peers remains. Now more than ever, the mental and social health needs of a society can be bolstered by time spent in a temporary community, and we are committed to adapting our property and event policies so you can reconnect.

A woman’s rest & inner spiritual journey retreat took me to Refreshing Mountain. It was a lovely surprise nestled in the hills of Lancaster county! Once there it feels... like the rest of the world cannot penetrate this lil capsule of sanctuary & rest! I signed up with a small group of friends for the zip line, which was also a super amazing above the tree tops experience! The staff was on point & very attentive! At no time did I feel unsafe! Thank you all involved for a great weekend!!read more
