About Us

The Hungry Mother Lutheran Retreat Center is a wonderful 58 acre little slice of heaven in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Southwest Virginia.  Our mission is to provide intentional community in God’s creation. We spread God’s grace by giving our sisters and brothers an opportunity to sense the presence of God in nature.  We seek to practice Christ-like hospitality and welcome all who wish to visit us.

We are located on a dead end road half a mile after passing through the Hungry Mother State Park and just 10 minutes off Interstate 81 at exit 47. Hungry Mother Creek, which is the source for Hungry Mother Lake, flows through the camp while National Forest surrounds us on three sides. Deer, turkey and hawks can be seen during sunrise and sunset in the open fields.

We welcome people of all affiliations and denominations to come use our facilities and to participate in our programmed events.
