The Solitude Cabin is a "pastor's retreat" cabin available for up to three nights per visit for pastors, missionaries and other ministry professionals. Reservations can be booked up to 3 months in advance and only reserved once every calendar year. Reservations are available March 1- November 15 (June/July closed).
Solitude is a modern A-frame facility with all the comforts of home (except TV). The cabin can sleep up to seven people. There is one bedroom with a queen bed, 3 single beds in the loft, and a double sofa bed. All sheets and towels are provided and there is a fully equipped kitchen. No pets are allowed.
If meals are being served during your stay, you are welcome to eat in the dining hall. Otherwise, Eldora has two grocery stores and a few restaurants.
Seasonal recreational activities are available for your use such as the canoes, paddle boats and hiking/biking trails in the State Park.
The Solitude Cabin is closed for the winter, but will be available again on March 1. Submit your request here to reserve a date after March 1. You can call 641.849.1066 or email email@example.com to inquire about a reservation.
To help us offset cleaning costs, we are asking for a $25 donation. This donation will hold your spot on the calendar. It is refundable in the event that you need to cancel. Refunds must be requested via email.
"When we were a young pastor couple on the verge of burnout, we were blessed with a free stay at a pastors' retreat where we learned about Sabbath Rest and implemented it in our weekly practice from then on. It saved our lives and has impacted our ministry for years. We are honored to be able to offer a peaceful retreat cabin for pastors and their families at PLC."
- Pastors Eric & Kelly Dykstra
