The Mountain Retreat and Learning Center
Reviewed 16 July 2011

The campus of the Mountain Retreat covers the entire top of the mountain. It is fairly primitive and the views are amazing. It offers a number of cabins, a lodge (hotel), meeting rooms, Dining Hall, Playground, volley ball, campfire and fire-tower. This is a non-denominational retreat that offers the seclusion to study, meditate, or just take in the peacefulness the area offers. You may want to bring a comfortable pillow, extra towels and a flashlight for night time walking. The is no A/C in the cabins, only heat. Each cabin has four bunkbeds and two regular twin size beds in a seperate room. The food was pretty good for the few days my group was there. They focus on an all natural menu, not the commercial Sysco type food. No TV, radios, clocks, pots or pans.
