The Lake. Feel free to take the paddle-boat out on the lake, jump in for a swim, or even do some fishing!

Hot Tub. Relax in the outdoor 7-person hot tub.
Corn Hole. Challenge your friends to a game of old-fashioned bean-bag toss.
Theater Room. Enjoy a movie and popcorn in our private, big-screen theater room.
Prayer Center. Comfortable chairs, a couch, pillows, worship music and a wood stove provide an easy atmosphere to encounter God. Our prayer building is open 24 hours and includes two small prayer closets for private prayer and a larger room devoted to corporate prayer and worship. The Honking Goose Inn and Retreat is dedicated to prayer and worship of the Biblical God. Our desire is to provide a place in which His Spirit is continually present. We invite you to come and sit in His presence, to worship Him and to pray.
Weekly Gathering. The Honking Goose Fellowship meets regularly at the Prayer Center on Fridays at 7pm. Our gathering is casual yet purposeful in encountering God. Everyone is welcome.
Prayer Requests. We have a staff of intercessors who will pray for your needs, so don’t hesitate to call us with your prayer requests. If you plan to stay at the Inn, we would like to pray before, during, and after your visit. Please let us know how we can pray for you. We believe that God answers prayer and that NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR HIM!
