R&R Retreats

Relaxing and Reconnecting at the Lakeshore 

Ready for some Rest & Relaxation? Lake Huron Retreat Center welcomes you to spend a few days at the lakeshore — alone, as a couple or a family. Your time is your own. Your space is private and clean. We’ll do the cooking and there’s plenty of space indoors and outdoors to eat, play and relax.

The Lake Huron staff will do our part in providing a safe and clean environment for your stay. Enjoy the privacy of your own guest room, social distancing around the campus with plenty of outdoor space to enjoy the beauty of our lakeshore.

Meals are served cafeteria style with plenty of room in our dining room for social distancing. Your safety is our top priority.

Take a walk, read a book or bring your crafts like quilting, scrapbooking or knitting. Watch the freighters, sit by the fireplace.

Choose a two-night weekend for your well-deserved getaway. Space limited, so register today! Event subject to cancellation if not sufficient interest or state guidelines change.


You’ll stay in comfortable hotel/motel-style private rooms with restrooms. If choosing double occupancy, both individuals should register and give the roommate’s name. See Facilities page to learn more about our guest lodging.
