“Sandy Cove’s staff created an environment where
I could be still and hear from God!”
Michelle, Denver, CO
Take a look at our meeting rooms, guest rooms, group leader FAQs, and promotional materials to help you plan your retreat.
“Your hospitality, great food and accommodations set a perfect atmosphere to draw closer to the Lord. I’ve been to many conference centers – this is a top-notch, well-staffed facility. Thank you!” Bruce, Church Retreat, Crownsville, MD
“Beautiful setting! You see God’s handiwork everywhere you looked and within the staff and all the women who were attending their own retreats!” Barb, Landisville, PA, HUMC Women’s Retreat
Unlike most hotels, we want to partner with you to help your group members connect with God and each other. From the time you first call, through the contract process, to arranging all the details until you arrive, during your retreat and as you wrap up to go home, we have staff who will come alongside and help!
We want to keep it super simple for you!
Our all-inclusive flat rate starts at $109 per person / per night! This means lodging, meals, available activities and meeting room are all covered under one price. For a week or weekend, we help your retreat or conference run smoothly! All of our guest rooms, dining facilities and the majority of our meeting space are all under one roof.
We offer retreats throughout the year for men, women, seniors, couples and families that your group is more than welcome to participate in! These weekends are completely programmed – speaker, worship leader and lots of activities. Your group can sit together, eat together, play together – plenty of time to connect with God and each other!
“Sandy Cove’s staff and facility was accommodating, enabling us to get alone with God and also as a group to minister to one another!” Donna, Fitchburg, MA

“Clean atmosphere, beautiful place, friendly and professional staff! Everything was great!” Heather, Women’s Retreat, Centreville, VA
We don’t do this very often, but if you need to have over 1,000 people meeting in one place at one time, we’ll help you fulfill your dreams!
“In years past, we endeavored to host our own men’s retreat at Sandy Cove. Needless to say, even with all that Sandy Cove offers, it was still a lot of work for me and our leadership team. We were so consumed with maintaining our program/schedule, that the team was unable to enjoy the retreat ourselves. Finally, the light bulb went on. I recognized that we were having our men’s retreat only a week before the Sandy Cove Men’s Retreat. That’s when I spoke with the lead pastor and the rest is history! We’ve been participating in the Sandy Cove event for years now.” Greg Perkins, Pathway Vineyard Church, Woodbridge, VA
Why not hold your retreat in the Blue Ridge Mountains? Additional retreat accommodations are available at Camp Sandy Cove, our summer camp facility in the Blue Ridge Mountains near Winchester, Virginia. Specializing in youth retreats, Camp Sandy Cove offers rustic but comfortable dormitory style accommodations, as well as a limited number of semi-private rooms, available for group rental from May through mid-June and mid-August through September. The facilities include two outdoor pools, a challenge course (with a zip line that takes you zooming over our lake), full meal plans, a large dining hall, meeting rooms to accommodate groups of 10 to 400 people, a lake for canoeing, fishing and much more!
