Church Retreats

Get Back To The Basics In The Red River Gorge

Want a Church Retreat Filled with Fun, Faith, & Fellowship?

We take pride in helping your Red River Gorge church retreat be the best it can be. From hikes in the woods to services in our activity center to nights together around a bonfire, is what makes this retreat memorable. Spending a church retreat at Cliffview provides the perfect location to get away from the noise of everyday life and get back to basics.


Let's get planning your next retreat! We're here to work with you in order to pull off the best one yet!


Guests can stay at one of our 3 lodges - our 16-room Cliffview Lodge (sleeps up to 64), our 11-room Cliffview Retreat (sleeps up to 48) or our 12-room Cliffview Lakeside (sleeps up to 50). A dining pavilion, an activity/event center and a screened in dining area are all options for your retreat's functions.


The Cliffview Conference Center in our Lodge is perfect for worship services, vacation bible school (VBS), and group Bible studies. We are happy to accommodate whatever you need to help make our conference room suitable for your group activities.


While fasting has its place, a full stomach during a church retreat is a small blessing in and of itself. Let us connect you with the best Red River Gorge caterers so you can make sure your church event is filling on more than just one plane.


At Cliffview, we have so much more to offer you than just a place to commune. We have our own zipline on property that everyone can enjoy. We also have tons of hiking trails, a pond to fish in, and we're close to Natural Bridge & Daniel Boone National Forest.

What Our Guests Are Saying


"From the moment I reached out to get more information about the cabin throughout our entire stay, the staff at Cliffview were amazing. They were very helpful in explaining all of our options with respect to the lodge and the catering services. They were very communicative and made sure to follow up with me to make sure I had all the information I needed to make decisions. At the resort during our trip, everything went perfectly. The conference room was set up the exact way we wanted it, and they told me about extra supplies we might need for our presentations that they had. They followed our specific instructions about needing privacy during our classes we put on for our students. I can’t think of any other way to say it, but everything went off without a hitch."
