“This event changed our marriage. It’s hard to create what hasn't been modeled for you. Dale & Veronica reminded us how much God has for our marriage. The experience was worth every penny.”

“After having kids, somehow we let our marriage fall asleep but Dale and Veronica's presentation of Scripture combined with their wisdom, brought our marriage back to life. We also had a blast with all the other couples.”

Who is the ideal couple for an Ultimate Marriage Retreat?
We believe the power of our retreats come in part from our ability to curate couples who are similar in personality, yet come from different generations and distances within their marriages. Having said that, this event is for Christian couples who have been married between 1-15 years. In addition, our retreat curriculum is designed for generally healthy couples looking to strengthen their marriage not for couples who are seeking to be rescued from the verge of divorce.
What airport will we need to fly into?
The retreat venue is approximately 30 minutes from RDM (Redmond, Oregon) and we suggest your flights land and depart here. However, you can also fly into PDX and take a beautiful 3.5 hour drive to the retreat venue.
Will we need to rent a car to get to the venue?
Since the retreat venue is approximately 30-minutes from the airport, a taxi or Uber are almost the same price as renting a car. It’s your choice, but if we had to choose, we would rent a car.
Are engaged couples allowed to attend this event?
Due to the nature of our curriculum, this event is for married couples only.
Do you offer refunds or cancellations?
Due to the nature of this endeavor, events with small quantities of people are hard to make refunds work. So our standard policy is no refunds offered on deposits or payments. Now, if there is an emergency or you were completely unsatisfied with your retreat, we are open to discussing alternative options on a case-by-case basis.
