Religious Retreats - All Faiths Welcome


Nothing brings you closer to God than experiencing the beauty and wonder of His creation. The fresh mountain air and beautiful scenery provide ample opportunities to sneak away and spend a little time alone reflecting on God. We offer the perfect setting for religious studies, prayer groups, couples retreat and any other sacred activity you have in mind. 

The Great Smoky Mountains are the ideal destination for church retreats. Local attractions are well-known for their wholesome, family values and are suitable for all ages. The wide variety of local churches welcome out-of-towners and the Smoky Mountain National Park welcomes church groups to hold services and devotionals right in the park! Eden Crest understands the importance of wholesome fun and will consult with you closely to determine the special needs and interests of your group to design a package that will accommodate everyone in your group.

Whether your group is adults, children or a mixture of both, people of all ages will find good, clean, fun and enlightenment in Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg and the Great Smoky Mountains! Eden Crest can help you plan a great getaway for your youth group, elders, women’s ministry or any other group within your congregation.
