Lodging Options


This is the camp experience. Our Economy housing is made up of cabins and dorms, many of which have full bathrooms attached or are in room. The rest have bathrooms within walking distance. These accommodations are outfitted with a queen bed or bunk beds and sleep 5 to 10 people for groups. For Marriage Retreats, there will be one couple per room. Linens are not provided during Mens and Family Retreats.


Not looking for the camp experience? Then upgrade to our Standard accommodations which include linens and have full bathrooms in the room. Larger than hotel rooms, these dorms can sleep 5 to 10 guests comfortably. For Marriage Retreats, there will be one couple per room.


Perhaps a hotel room is your idea of retreating... then our Deluxe Lodge rooms are for you. With amenities like a coffee maker, telephone, and a refrigerator in your room you won't feel like you're "roughing it" at all. Each room can sleep up to 4 guests comfortably. For Marriage Retreats, there will be one couple per room.

Self-Provided Housing:

For those who do not need Hume housing for the retreat, but have instead arranged their own lodging at a privately-owned cabin in the area. Please note that RV parking and tent camping are not available on Hume property.
