Shadow Rest Ministries

Shadow Rest Ministeries 04-29-2014Driving down West Cape Rock Drive on the way to pick up Dick McClard, I noticed what I thought was a small, white church high on a hill. When I mentioned it, Dick said the road off Hwy 635 was washed out, but we could get to it from another direction.

After a day of rambling, we ended up at Shadow Rest Ministries, a spiritual retreat with some of the most relaxing cabins I’ve seen anywhere. I’d like to go back and do the place justice. Click on the photos to make them larger.

The Yurt

Yurt at Shadow Rest Ministries 04-29-2014The most intriguing structure was a yurt, a wood lattice frame with a durable fabric cover. We were there on a very windy day, but the inside of the building was almost soundproof. There was no sense that we were in a fabric building.

Simple and comfortable

  1. Our family stayed at this retreat in October of 2016. My husband and I slept in the Yurt. It was amazing and life changing. An outdoor experience with an updated indoor comfort. As you lay in the bed there’s a see through glass ceiling and the trees are blowing with beautiful blue skies. We loved it. Everyone should experience it. That’s why this weekend our family is booked again for a holiday get away!
