“I want to thank [the Streamside] staff team for the great service, wonderful hospitality, and excellent food! I’d come back to Streamside again in a heartbeat. I am especially grateful for the gift of spending time away from the busyness and demands of ministry in an urban setting. We will definitely consider Streamside as a place of choice for retreating.”

Rev. Bill Sweeting
Pastor of Vroom St. Church
