Your Own Personal Retreat


TIME WITH GOD | TIME TO REST | TIME FOR YOURSELF


Come…sit…rest

Watchman Nee in Sit, Stand, Walk says, “… to sit down is simply to rest our whole weight – our load, ourselves, our future, everything – upon the Lord.”

We invite you to Sandy Cove for a time of rest, retreat and renewal. Typically midweek is a quieter time at Sandy Cove and weekends are hopping with groups connecting with God and each other!

“My husband and I went to Sandy Cove for our first time on a personal retreat. We stayed one night, and had a wonderful experience. Our room was large and clean. The staff that we talked to were very friendly and welcoming. There were many activities for us to do together like mini golf, Frisbee golf, walking path, etc. We also spent time relaxing while overlooking the water and watched the sun set. It was a wonderful getaway for us!” TripAdvisor review
