Guest Stays

Get away without going away!  Our beautiful Victorian home is a place of peace, beauty, and the tangible presence of God. Guest Stays can be a personal getaway, a group retreat or a 3-month stay that is incorporated with our core class.  We invite you to explore the options for guest stays and find the one that works best for you!

Three  types of stays!

Personal Retreats

Personal Retreats at House of Hope provide the opportunity to get away from your everyday schedule for rest and renewal.  If you prefer, bring a friend and spend some time together without all of the daily distractions that life brings.

House of Hope is the perfect place to bring your Bible, your journal, or a good friend and settle in for the weekend. You don’t have to travel out of town.  You have a space to connect right here in the heart of the city.

Women participating in a personal retreat are invited to stay at House of Hope for a night, a weekend, or a few days. During your stay, you will be given a private room with two twin beds, fresh towels and all the comforts of home.  Just bring your toiletries!  If you wish, we offer self-guided retreat material.  Spend time in prayer in one of the beautiful spaces in the house or take a walk through our historic neighborhood. Your time is your own!

Personal retreats are $40 per room per night.  This cost can be shared between two women.  Contact House of Hope at to inquire about registering for a stay.

More Details about staying at the House can be found here.

Group Retreats

Group Retreats at House of Hope give you an opportunity to experience a retreat with sessions and activities designed to give you teaching and tools to live more fully as the woman God has created you to be!

We can also host your gathering or retreat.   You can create your own content or let us help coordinate!  We also offer our own group retreats that are open to the public.

If you would like to reserve House of Hope for your group, see the fee chart below for rates.

Three-Month Stays

Three-Month stays are intended to create margin in your daily life that allows you to pursue God’s truth. You are given the opportunity to take an intentional season of life to address unhealthy patterns and realize the freedom Christ has designed us to live in.  The three-month stay is combined with participation in a phase of The Ultimate Journey.

Women interested in a three-month stay should fill out our Guest Stay Application. Our team will then contact you to explore if a stay is a good fit, and if so, how that stay will be structured. Three-month stays are offered twice a year, in the fall and the spring, alongside our sessions of The Ultimate Journey.

The fee for an three-month stay is $1,350 with the opportunity for scholarships to help offset the cost. This can be paid prior to moving in or in three installments.
