Our goals…

Much construction has been done at the Lodestar Mountain Inn.  As of June 2020, construction has been completed on the Weaver House, which includes five bedrooms; a prayer chapel; two cabins, which include two units each; and the Evangel House, consisting of five bedrooms.  The Evangel House, our most recently completed building, is currently being furnished.

Plans to convert a donated barn into the Event Center are well underway. When finished, it will house a commercial kitchen, dining and meeting space, two bedrooms, and two bunk houses.

There are four ponds on the property that are stocked for fishing. We are also adjacent to the South Branch of the Potomac River, one of the best trout streams on the East Coast. Other available activities include hiking, stargazing, mountain biking, and a projected shooting range for clay pigeons.
