Kerith Retreat

Rest and Rediscovery in the Heart of the Blue Ridge


A Place of Peace

Opening July 2022

Come as you are, pray and rest for a few days or a week. Kerith Retreat is a Christian retreat house, offering a single detached upstairs apartment (brand new king bed & day bed, den, kitchenette, full bath) with a private deck on our quiet 2-acre property and stream in the mountains of Western North Carolina. Check out our Instagram or Facebook page for progress reports on the apartment.

Kerith is not a "center" for group retreats. Our mission is to host one person, a husband & wife, or 2-3 platonic friends who will have the apartment & grounds to themselves for the purpose of a spiritual retreat. We want to provide enough time and space to set aside their worries and the weight of their callings -- to sit with God and let him provide for their needs. Our hope is to see each guest return home energized, knowing someone has heard them, cared for them, and prayed for them -- remembering why they were called in the first place. Our home is also on the property, so spiritual direction and pastoral care are available by appointment on-site (and online as well).

Your hosts,

Rev. Chris & Claire Andrews

Kerith is located 5 minutes off the Blue Ridge Parkway, 15 minutes from the beautiful Main Street of Waynesville, and 45 minutes from downtown Asheville (see the interactive map below).

So Elijah did what the Lord had told him. He went to the Kerith Ravine, east of the Jordan, and stayed there. The ravens brought him bread and meat in the morning and the evening, and he drank from the brook.
