Welcome to Crystal River Florida's latest destination! We would love to share with you our vision of a small community, faith-based retreat center located just over an hour north of Tampa, Florida that can accommodate small groups in a natural and engaging environment.
In 2001, our founders purchased the property just north of the Crystal River Mall in Citrus County, Florida. God placed on their hearts the idea to use the property for a Christian retreat center and use the property to His glory. This is where our story begins.
The Lord continues to give them the dreams and the means of which He supplies. By the grace of God, the property has been transformed from 58 acres of woods to what you see today and it is still growing.
Our facility consists of: Soquili Stables
, a 12-horse barn;
acres of riding and hiking trails; Tree Top Adventure
, which includes a high-ropes course and zip lines; a low ropes course; and scheduled for completion in Summer 2017 is the retreat center, consisting of two bunkhouses, a community house with a heating kitchen, and a bathhouse. An outdoor chapel is in the plan as well.
We will soon be hosting individuals and groups from the tri-state area. A group retreat center is in the development process. It consists of two bunkhouses, a community house with a heating kitchen, and a bathhouse. Combined, the 2 bunkhouses will house up to 40 people. When renting the bunkhouses, the group will also have access to the community house. If the bunkhouses are not occupied, the community house can be utilized by the half- or full-day.
