As a result of COVID-19 we have lost 40% of our revenue.  We have remained open, but we could use your help to keep the trails open and maintained in the present, and our facility open and maintained in the future.   Hollis provides affordable retreat space and offers Christian hospitality to all because of generous donations from people like you.  Help us continue to welcome those in need.   
​Thank you for your consideration.

Hollis Lodge - Remote Learning Special - $50

We welcome the stranger. It's our mission. We offer Christian hospitality to all.  

A global pandemic might have limited how many strangers we can welcome at a time, but our gate remained open.  We did not close, and will continue serve our community as long as people are in need of a place to rest, retreat and reflect. That being said, we are conscience of the health concerns regarding COVID-19 and have made changes in our operating procedures to ensure the health and safety of all who visit Hollis.  If you have specific questions or concerns please reach out to us. 

We will continue to "welcome the stranger" and we encourage all of our guests to treat others, as you would like to be treated.

Peace be with you.
