The Springs, Oldenburg, IN

The lovely Robin and I enjoyed a restful and restorative time this past weekend at The Springs, a 150-acre Christian retreat center serving people in ministry. They provide space for solo or couple retreats, group or staff retreats, family getaways, and more.
We were treated to four days and three nights of quiet and rest in luxurious accommodations, one of four guest houses that accommodate up to six people each in three bedrooms.
It was a time of welcome "disconnection" from electronics, as there is no cellphone service or wifi available at The springs, which adds to the appeal of the place.
In addition to an adorable book box by the walkway to the cabins (below), there are countless helpful reminders and resources in each guest house, including a booklet suggesting various ways to connect with God. 
A guest garden is provided for guests to pick or tend, as well as a stocked pond for fishing or paddleboating, trails for walking, a prayer labyrinth, a fire ring, numerous inviting places to sit and enjoy the scenery (though it was a hot weekend), and horseshoe pits, a volleyball court, cornhole sets, and a hot tub.
The Springs is located near Oldenburg, Indiana (not far from Batesville and I-74), northwest of Cincinnati. It is a wonderful ministry and a place we will return to often in the future.
