  • I prayed that the Lord would lead us to the right place for our 20th anniversary and for my husband’s 50th birthday. I typed in a google search ‘Christian Marriage Retreat Getaway’ and Scott River Lodge popped up first. I looked into it and called to see what it was all about. I had never heard of JH Ranch or knew anyone who came here, but I was sold! I called my husband to tell him about SRL and he said it sounded great. I think we may be one of the first Catholic couples to attend and we LOVED it! Amazing program that I would love to see duplicated across the nation.

  • Everyone were such servants and the Lord was evident everywhere at the Lodge. The time was well organized and thought out! We loved it. This trip was right up there with our honeymoon- maybe even higher than it!

  • My husband and I had an incredible time at the Scott River Lodge this summer. We attended the ‘Set in Stone’ program and feel it greatly blessed and strengthened our marriage. The facilitators, the Schultzs, were awesome! The food was of-the-charts fabulous. The accommodations and setting were gorgeous. Truly we feel this was an amazing experience that will positively impact our family and hopefully our church family as well. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
