The Lighthouse on the beach making a stand in the sand
 
 
 
 
We are happy you chose our facility for your retreat!  Here are a few things to remember:
 

 
 
 
 
Our facility is a CHURCH that houses our Retreat Center, so we ask that it be treated as you would treat your church.
Our 1st floor Sanctuary is reserved for church use only. 
 
 
Please help us to keep the building and grounds clear of trash and debris, not only for appearance, but for the sake of safety.
 
  • Our facility is in high demand, so your Deposit cements and holds your reservation
  • Return original signed confirmation letter with your deposit  (Check or Online Retreat Donation)
  • If your numbers change. let us know as soon as possible!
 
  • Your arrival will be anticipated with great excitement!  We ask that you call when your group is about an hour away from the facility so someone can meet you here, get you into the building, hand out keys and go through a quick orientation!
  • If your group will arrive later in the evening, please let us know at the time of your confirmation.  (We live north of Orange Beach and will need to arrange our schedule meet you later in the evening.)
 
  • Park on ground level only.  No buses or vans are allowed on upper deck at any time due to weight issues.
  • We have members who drop in during the week, so we ask that you leave a few parking spaces by the elevator available for their vehicles and for staff vehicles.
  • Trailers are to be parked under parking deck nearer the street.  (Not in the area near the elevator.)
 
  • Trash is to be bagged and disposed of regularly. 
  • Trash chutes are located on each floor and used for smaller bags.  If your bag will not fit in the chute, it must be carried to the trash container on the ground level. 
  • Please do not leave trash in closets or the trash cart. 
 
  • All Entry / Exit doors must be locked after lights out at night.  This is for your safety!   
 
  • Elevator should be used by adults only. 
  • Due to issues in the past with our elevator, we must adhere to strict guidelines concerning its use. Please understand that your church/group will be responsible for any costs incurred by the following:
    1. Should anyone in your group damage the elevator due to playing on it.(I.E. jumping inside the elevator, knocking door off track, etc.)
    2. Should anyone in your group makes a false emergency call by playing with or depressing the “bell” or “phone” buttons on the elevator control panel. These buttons are not toys and are not for making phone calls from the elevator except in an emergency. Depressing them summons emergency 911 personnel. It is illegal to make a false emergency call and your church will be charged. Thank you for your help in this matter.
 
Misc. Info:
Guests bring their own sleeping bag or bed linens including sheets (twin size for dorms), pillows, blankets, towels, disposable paper plates, cups, eating utensils, napkins, paper towels and toilet tissue, etc.
 
*** VIP linens are provided but there is NO daily maid service.
 
Due to sand related issues we are unable to offer washer and dryers. There are local coin operated facilities near the church which are available.
