GraceStone Sanctuary

"Creating Missional Sanctuary"  

The Sanctuary

Come relax and regroup at GraceStone Sanctuary. The home and grounds offer serenity and peace! Located in a recently renovated home built in the 1920s as a hunting lodge the venue is surrounded by six acres of natural woods and pathways. The historic home maintains much of its original woodwork including the hand crafted beamed ceilings and original wood floors. GraceStone Sanctuary offers historic character, comfort and reflection for the soul. An adjoining east sunroom opens up to spectacular views of the Blue Ridge Mountain Ranges and rolling countryside. A second sunroom showcases the Allegheny Mountains to the west.

The nearby Four Seasons Bryce Resort offers additional activities including skiing and golfing. Nearby Lake Laura also offers water activities for those fishing and water enthusiasists!

One Day Events for Small Groups
Your group is welcome to meet for the day at GraceStone. Meals and light snacks are arranged with the Kitchen Staff ahead of time from a menu of choices. All meals and snacks are prepared and served by the GraceStone staff. Meeting spaces include the large Community Room that can be configured to your needs, the East and West Four Season Porches can be used for smaller groups or break-down sessions for small group discussion. There is also a small chapel available for private prayer, meditation, or personal conversation. Bring your own agenda for your meetings or have the staff at GraceStone create a day designed around your soul and spiritual needs. 

(Because of our personal commitment to your comfort we limit the group size to no more than fifteen participants unless otherwise arranged.)
