Wildfire Ranch Spiritual Retreat is a peaceful paradise of seven acres located in the heart of Spring Mills, Pennsylvania (central PA). Breathtaking views surround the setting creating an atmosphere of peace and tranquility. The retreat center itself is fondly referred to as the 'Ponderosa Lodge', a 1200 sq. ft. log home that sleeps up to 8 guests for overnight lodging. A 1200 sq. ft. covered deck offers guests peace and breathtaking views from a second-story level. Owner Cynthia Sweeley has been requested by hundreds of people over the last 20 years for her Christian-counseling services. Emotionally-traumatized families had been turned away from psychiatric centers unable to pay the $150/hr fee or unable to wait the 3-6 months at the low-income counseling centers. Our purpose at Wildfire Ranch Spiritual Retreat is to promote healing for emotionally-hurting men, women and children through one-on-one encounters with 13 magnificent horses.

We Also Offer: Affordable Horse boarding, Horse-riding lessons, Horse-back Weddings, Kids Horse Camps (year-round), Horse-training for problem horses.
