Downing Mountain Lodge offers a unique location and structure for different types of events. Built-in the round with abundant natural light and views, the living room faces the large fireplace and can be configured in ways to best suit your group's needs, whether it be a wedding, family reunion, or retreat. We work closely with our guests to provide them with the exact service they want and always look forward to seeing the creative ways our space can be used.

With three bedrooms and two bathrooms, the retreat center can easily accommodate 10 overnight guests, and some push it to 15 by using the double beds and the loft. The occasional group sets up tents for larger groups of overnight guests. Guests are free to move furniture around to best utilize the space and we have storage capability if the need arises to fully remove items from the living room.
