Main Property

We’ve been blessed with an incredible place for the past 60 years and we want to share it with you!

We are intentional in the space we create here at Caroline Furnace. We recognize the value of a place “set apart” and strive to be a “thin place” for all of God’s people. We have a beautiful blend of forests and open fields surrounding our lake, hiking trails, chapel, prayer labyrinth, and array of indoor and outdoor meeting spaces.

We want you to have a wonderful experience here as our guest and neighbor, and will happily work with you in meeting your group’s needs. All are welcome here. Hospitality is our specialty! Whether you run your own program or choose from our various options of programs and activities, we will provide your group with an unforgettable experience in a beautiful setting. You may provide your own food or allow us to do all the work for you! 


Our spacious Farmhouse hosts a living room with fireplace, a dining room, a large eat-in kitchen, and a screened porch. Wi-Fi and a phone are provided.


In its updated configuration, it sleeps 13-15 guests, with two bedrooms downstairs and three bedrooms upstairs. Downstairs, one room has a queen bed and the other has one full and one twin bed. Upstairs is a room with two full beds and one twin bed (can add an additional twin), a room with two full beds, and a room with 5 twin beds and 1 queen. Linens are provided for all beds.

Farmhouse bedroom layout


The bathrooms have two showers, three toilets, and sinks per side.


The Farmhouse

is perfect for small groups of 25 or less, in a community-centered space with all the comforts of home. 

In the winter, groups love to cozy up by the fireplace with a cup of tea or hot cocoa, or venture out to explore the snow covered trails by day, and gaze up at the stars at night (but not too far from the fire pit!).


Cabin Village

Our Cabin Village features heated facilities, including eight heated cabins with bunk beds. Each cabin sleeps 12-14 guests, for a total of 100 in the Cabin Village. Cabin 7 and 8 are wheelchair accessible.


Moyer Lodge is in the center of the Cabin Village and hosts our dining room, commercial kitchen and fireside room, for fellowship and meals. Moyer Lodge has phone and Wi-Fi access.


Also centrally located in the Cabin Village is our modern bathhouse. Our bathhouse has eight showers per side (men's and women's) and is handicapped accessible.

Our Upper Room meeting space is air conditioned, and can be configured as one large room for meetings or worship OR three smaller rooms. The building also includes a screened porch, two restrooms, and hallway with kitchenette.

In close proximity to the Cabin Village are three Fire Circles, our Prayer Labyrinth, a low ropes Community Development Course, a GaGa ball pit, and a basketball hoop. Interspersed are an abundance of picnic tables and benches, for conversation and fellowship. Several of our on-property trails branch out from the Cabin Village.
