Purchased in 1993, Stonehaven Retreat offers an oasis from daily life for Christians to meditate, receive healing, restoration, direction and strength for their daily lives. Our season extends from April 1 to December 1 each year. Please keep this in mind, as we do not receive guests from December 1 to March 31 each year, as we are closed then.

Stonehaven's Philosophy

The philosophy of Stonehaven is quite simple. Beginning in 1990, we searched for the right property, a place where some of the Lord's various purposes for His people could be fulfilled. In the fall of 1992, we were led to this beautiful piece of property in Little Switzerland, NC. Financing became available for its purchase and remodeling through an insurance settlement received after our homes and all of our possessions were lost in a fire during the Blizzard of '93.

Our goals at Stonehaven are to offer a place where Christians can be away from the distractions and demands of daily life in the world and to provide a healthy, restful atmosphere where natural food, pure air and spring water are the rule. At Stonehaven, one can receive from the Lord the healing, restoration, direction and strength that is needed through a protected quietness, scripture study and prayer. Books, tapes and counseling are available.

We could not offer the Lord Jesus something which cost us nothing ( I Chronicles 21:24). The purchase of Stonehaven was finalized in August, 1993. Since then, the remodeling of the main house, pond, 2-story apartment and all of the Ark (a three story lodge) is finished. Other buildings may be added later. There are also some lots for sale for those interested in being a part of a Christian Community.

If you feel that this setting is one in which you would like to be a guest, or to live and work,
