Christian Women Connect With God and Each Other At Sandy Cove!

Sandy Cove offers Christian Women’s Retreat options…
Women come to Sandy Cove on their own, with their BFF and as part of churches and families!

Dear Sisters and Friends,

Thanks for stopping by to see what Sandy Cove has to offer for Christian Women Getaways! I know you have many choices on how you can invest your time!

Recently someone asked me, “Which would be better for me to attend… a one day simulcast at my church of a popular speaker? …or getaway to Sandy Cove for a Women’s Weekend retreat?” And my answer was, “They are two completely different experiences!”

The choice requires deciding what you need most in life right now. Do you need time and space away from your daily routine? Would you like to really connect with some friends? Picture yourself at meal times laughing (or maybe crying) with friends, getting up from the table, and walking away from the leftovers and dirty dishes! How does that feel? How about the opportunity to be taught from God’s Word with time afterwards to ask questions and discuss ideas with a small group? Would you like to take a walk in the woods, sit by the water and listen for God, or take a nap? These are just some of the possibilities during a Sandy Cove Women’s Weekend!

Sandy Cove offers a place where women retreat — a place to connect with God and others in a serene setting perfect for relaxation, renewal and reflection. We are passionate about experiencing the fullness of life Jesus promised. At some point during your stay, I hope you’ll take a slow deep breath… exhale… and say, “This is just what I need!”

As always, your prayers, comments and suggestions are welcome.

If you have questions about women’s programs, please call me at 443.674.9457 or 800.234.COVE (2683) ext 457 or email me at

Your sister in Christ,

Womens Weekend Dining
Many churches have chosen to let Sandy Cove host their Christian Women’s Retreat and join in for the speaker and the meals and the fun. Sandy Cove takes care of all the details, big and small, and that lets your women get away and focus on building relationships with the people from your church. We are usually able to provide your group with your own meeting space and reserved seating at meals.

Lots of details online or call 800.234.COVE (2683) / 410.287.5433 and ask for our Group Ministry team.
