History- The original property was owned by an attorney from Carlisle, PA who purchased the land in 1918, and in the early 1920's built the stone lodge (the Gray House) and the Family Cottage. The lodge was constructed of native mountain stone and timber from the property. In those days a project of this size was quite an undertaking, and offered employment to a large number of men from the area.
The second owner of the property acquired it in the 1930's, and on September 11, 1962 it was sold to the Central Pennsylvania Conference of the United Methodist Church. Since then, the physical property has seen many changes, but the principle of offering Christian hospitality in a natural setting to our retreat guests has remained the same for 45 years. We strive to offer an ideal place to heal your soul while strengthening your faith
