The Refuge–a place to retreat

Leave your routine, refresh your spirit & regain your sanity

The Refuge is private retreat space at the home of Dave & Pam Ping. Its secluded wooded setting just outside of the charming little town of Loveland, Ohio, makes it equally well suited for …

  • Romantic couple getaways
  • Personal time alone for prayer, study, or writing
  • Daytime staff gatherings and strategic planning meetings … or
  • Just soaking in nature’s beauty, walking in the woods, wading or fishing for large-mouth bass in our 1-acre pond

For a contribution comparable to the cost of a stay in a discount motel room, you get country living in a nicely furnished 3-room suite with spacious living room, café dining room, and comfortable bedroom with a queen-size bed and private bath. For daytime planning meetings or team retreats the suite can accommodate indoor gatherings up to 7 people. Larger daytime gatherings may also be accommodated in other rooms.
