Independent Stay

We invite you to join our community rhythms of life as you weather your storm, find healing and clarity or take time to process and reflect. We are committed to be a safe place and safe people and we believe that you will find that here. Our warm and friendly staff are here for your support.

Our community is made up of rhythms, simplicity and adventure. Here is a little more information about our community that will help you decide if this is what you are looking for.


We set aside time for prayer and blessing three times a day. This allows our community time to gaze upon God and to minister blessing to Him.

Friday evening is community celebration time. We eat together, have communion, give thanks and celebrate all that God has done throughout the week.

We are happy to have you join us in our daily rhythms but if you need time and space we honour you and bless what you need.


You are welcome to join us in our daily work activities but we encourage you to take time each day to slow down and connect to the presence of God and to yourself.

Most of all, we encourage you to focus on the simple things of life; conversations, meals together, a good book, playing a game, times of stillness in His presence and good night sleep (maybe even a nap?).


This is where the simple rhythms of daily life take to the mountains. We love to explore God’s magnificent creation. From natural hot-springs, canoe trips, camping, remote cabin overnight trips, mountain biking, hiking, fishing, skiing to gentle forest walks…we have it all and we do it all.

There is no shortage of adventures to experience in the Kootenay area. You do not need to be an expert mountaineer to enjoy these adventures. We can accommodate for all levels of experience.

  • Healing involves the whole person
    spiritual, cognitive, emotional, relational and physical
  • Healing and wholeness is a process
    rather than an instantaneous event
  • The more actively involved and committed you are
    the more effective the process will be
  • A ministry team member cannot do the work for you
    but are here to support you through the process

At Mountain Refuge we long for your healing journey to be directed by Holy Spirit who knows you best

Available for you…

  • a listening ear
  • resources
  • connection to local ministries
  • prayer and blessing
  • teaching and training
  • encouragement
