The Wilderness

It's time to relax as you come down the driveway into The Wilderness. The 20-acre property consists of the
farmhouse, four cottages, and the Retreat Center.

There are gardens, a pond, and a game-field on the property. (Activities for which we have equipment on hand are: volleyball, whiffle-ball, badminton, horse shoes, and frisbee.) We adjoin the 14,000 acre Little River National Preserve with miles of trails to explore, huge rocks to climb, and a crystal clear swimming hole just a short walk away.

A 15 minute drive will take you to two large waterfalls, horseback riding, the 600' deep Little River carved canyon, two golf courses, and Alabama's only ski slope. A 35 minute drive and you'll find zip-lines, rock climbing, rapelling and other adventures.
