Valley Haven Retreat Center, Hickory, NC
The Rested Conference is held at the Valley Haven Camp and Retreat Center in Hickory, NC. Nestled in a serene valley beneath the Blue Ridge Mountains, Valley Haven is brimming with the restorative beauty of Christ's creation. The 175 acre property is marked by sprawling fields with benches for quiet reflection. Secluded spots by the glistening creeks offer the perfect place to pray or take a much needed nap. More adventurous visitors can set out onto a few miles of prayer trails that offer stunning views of the ridgeline along with the simple quiet of the forest. Enjoy the starry skies from rocking chair porches miles away from the busyness of the city. Head over to the outdoor fire pit to enjoy the crackle of the fire and an old fashioned s'more. Whether you're in search of a creek to walk, a pond to fish or a dock where you can dip your toes into a spring-fed pool, Valley Haven has something for everyone!
