Welcome

Lake Huron Retreat Center — your peaceful antidote to today’s busy lifestyle. On the “sunrise” side of the “mitten” state, you’ll wake up to expansive views of Lake Huron. Located just north of Port Huron, Michigan, Lake Huron Retreat Center is a full-service adult retreat center dedicated to Christian hospitality connected with the United Methodist Church. You’ll find its popular meeting rooms, chapel, dining hall and guest rooms are comfortable and modern. Plan your next day meeting or overnight experiences with ease and confidence knowing our reputation for excellent food service, clean and comfortable guest rooms and a beautiful campus. In 2017 the “At the Water’s Edge” guest cottage opened for clergy and laity to book personal escapes for spiritual rest and relaxation.  Call us or come visit to see how Lake Huron Retreat Center can host your faith-based organization, school or not-for-profit.

Our cottage on Lake Huron up in East Tawas was destroyed by the waves

No parking for the golf carts right now.

WOW! We are having the same problem on Lake St.Clair 😢

Wow, never thought it would reach the fire pit area! Do you have houses in trouble over there. We had a house fall into Lake MI near Muskegon.

🙏 Praying more damage doesn’t happen. Thinking of this Special Place.

So sad such damages

Wow. Looks like some clean up work is ahead.

Oh no! T and J

So sad to see this 🙁

Changing times! Love to you all

Annette Cote Marrs the camp up the beach by the creek.
