Shepherd’s Refuge is a non-denominational ministry serving pastors, ministry leaders in full time positions, and missionaries with their spouses.
Guests are accommodated Bed & Breakfast style at Shepherd’s Lodge, and can join the hosts for any meal they desire. We accept reservations for one couple at a time in order to ensure privacy. A small group, up to 2 couples, can be accommodated if they know each other and agree to such an arrangement.
The Selah Cabin is a stand alone building offering secluded privacy in a quiet forest setting about 400 feet away from the Lodge. It is fully equipped to allow guests solitude without any people around them, but the hosts would not mind to share a meal or two with them.
The Shiloh Cabin is also a stand alone building, a bit smaller than the Selah Cabin, yet has the same size bedroom and bathroom, a sitting area and a kitchenette. The rear deck offers a quiet sitting area overlooking the forest.
Shepherd’s Refuge provides areas of solitude as well as comfortable sitting areas to enjoy fellowship. A library with over 3600 titles is also available to our guests.
Our goal is to help guests prevent burnout, therefore, we do not offer any set schedules or programs.
The grounds cover portions of a secluded valley, including adjacent ridges in the North Georgia Mountains, surrounded by the Chattahoochee National Forest. Our guests can enjoy sitting on the deck overlooking the valley, explore hiking trails, discover places to sit and take in the natural beauty and the gentle flowing waters of the creek meandering through the valley. Guests can also fish in a stocked pond located on the premises, or enjoy fishing in many of the nearby trout streams and lakes.
