The mission of the Retreat at Long Mountain is to assist Lakewood Baptist Church in fulfilling its vision of being a regional church that raises up fully devoted followers of Christ who are trained and equipped to reach and love lost people personally, locally and globally.


The Retreat at Long Mountain provides endless opportunities for individuals, families and small groups to slow down, enjoy fellowship, reconnect with creation, and to “be still.” Whether you are looking for a place for a small group gathering, family celebration, or extended family get away, let us partner with your group to arrange an unforgettable retreat experience.


The Retreat at Long Mountain is not just for Lakewood. We desire to be regional resource to our area churches and ministries. We are an ideal location for church leadership retreats, youth groups, and pastor retreats.


The Retreat at Long Mountain is dedicated to Jesus’s command to “go unto all the world.” The Retreat is an ideal setting for missions teams to plan their upcoming trip or debrief previous trips. The Retreat offers reduced rates to missionary families who are stateside on furlough in order to help then relax, recharge, and get ready to return to the field.


Come rest, renew, and recharge at our Retreat in the North GA mountains.
