The Retreat closes December 1 and reopens March 1 each year. We do accept
reservations year around.
Christian Pastor Retreat is a non-profit corporation that provides furnished
cabins for pastors and missionaries for vacations, restful retreats and time with
the Lord. Many guests return for the third and fourth time.
Located in beautiful Fentress County in eastern Tennessee, we are just 14
miles east of Jamestown, and 14 miles west of Oneida, at the edge of Big
South Fork National River and Recreation Area and Pickett State Park. The
retreat is about 100 miles north of Knoxville and 15 miles from the Kentucky
line at an altitude of 1600'. We are on the Cumberland Plateau, which is the
world's longest forested plateau. There are many things to do within a short
drive of the cabins. We are on Central Time.
We have two cabins which are located on over eight acres of tree lined
property and sit serenely at the rear of the lot. There is peace and privacy,
quiet and semi-seclusion for each cabin. Wildlife routinely graze in the yard.
You will often see horseback riders passing through the area on trail rides.
We suggest a donation of $25 per night or $150 for the week which pays for
taxes, insurance, utilities, phone, replacement of appliances and bedding, etc.
We support this ministry from our retirement income. You can make your
donation when you arrive. If you are unable to make a donation you are
welcome to come anyway. Just let us know your needs.
Cabin A has no steps. Cabin B has only two steps to the bathroom. Otherwise
there are no other steps.
Cabin A sleeps seven
Cabin B sleeps eight
Bunk Room/Toy room sleeps 3-4 and can be reserved by either Cabin A or B.
We also have a high chair and a Pack n Play that can be reserved. Just check
for these on the Reservation form.
We check references.
Sometimes guests are able to reserve Cabins A & B for family and friends who
are also full-time ministers or missionaries. Summer reservations fill up 6-9
months in advance, so make your reservation early.
We are sure you will enjoy your stay at Christian Pastor Retreat!
