Our Featured Facilities

Dining Facilities

Mt. Chestnut Retreat Center often hosts wedding receptions and banquets in our large-capacity multi-purpose room, which features a raised stage area and can be set up to your specifications.
We also offer a full-service dining hall that comfortably accommodates 150+.

Heinlein Tabernacle

(Capacity: 2,500)
Heinlein Tabernacle is a large distinctively-shaped round building that seats up to 2,500. This multi-purpose building is used for worship services, meetings and recreational activities throughout the spring, summer and fall months. In the winter, this structure is used as a storage facility for boats, RVs and other vehicles.

Multi-Purpose Gymnasium

(Capacity: 400)
Our Multi-Purpose Building (MPB) is truly just that—a building with many varied uses, including wedding receptions, classes, parties, craft shows, retreats, worship services, banquets, meetings, concerts, conferences, talent/sports competitions, gymnastic/dance classes and recreational activities of all types. With a raised stage area, sound system, basketball/volleyball courts and unlimited table/chair/movable-partition configurations, this structure is quite accurately described as “multi-purpose” and is suitable for both large and small groups.

Chapel

(Capacity: 100)
The chapel is one of our smaller and more intimate venues that is suitable for classes, meetings or small-group worship. With a cozy kitchen that includes a stove, sink and refrigerator, this space is perfect for informal fellowship and can comfortably accommodate 50-75 diners or larger groups in row seating.

Fuller Picnic Pavilion

(Capacity: 150)
An open-air rustic structure with full electric service, Fuller Pavilion is the perfect location for picnics, graduation parties, showers, family reunions and warm-weather gatherings of all types.

Baun Lobby

(Capacity: 25)
Baun Lobby is a relaxing area that could be aptly described as a breakfast-room type of meeting space. With its central location, round tables, a fully-equipped kitchenette, a bookcase abounding with a variety of reading materials suitable for all ages, and a gas fireplace for cold-weather comfort, this space is just right for small classes, group table games, family gatherings and friendly get-togethers.

Bennett Meeting Rooms A & B

(Capacity: 30 each)
The “twin” Bennett Rooms, located on either side of the MPB, are mirror-image meeting rooms that offer a quiet small-group gathering place, perfect for break-out sessions and classes.
