I love the place and all that it has to offer for a weekend retreat cannot wait to go back in November 2019 for the Women 2 Women Retreat. What a wonderful time I has with my Sistah's in Christ and the presence of God was in the midst. What a Mighty God we serve. The whole layout of the place is wonderfully planned to explore.

Keswick is a great place to visit with your church group, family and friends. It's truly a place where lives are changed. I've been to Keswick many times over the past 15 years on a number of retreats. Enjoy the opportunity to unwind, reconnect and grow.

I was fortunate to participate in an event about 5 years ago, when Pastor Ángel Madera was giving and amazing teaching to a congregation that had invited him and he asked me to go with him. As soon as you enter there’s a Peace that you can tangibly feel
