clearwater forest


A place for rest and renewal, a place to connect with the Spirit in the beauty of God’s creation.



    A cozy cabin, tucked in the beautiful Clearwater forest away from noise and distraction, the hermitage is intended for year around solo retreats and offers a serene setting for solitude and renewal.

    The cabin features a comfortable sitting/reading area with gas stove, a desk for study and writing, a large picture window and screened-in porch offering views of the lake and surrounding forest.
