Kerith Pines, Manitoba

Kerith Pines, our Manitoba Kerith Retreats centre, is located approximately an hour and 15 minutes east of Winnipeg, Man., on 103 acres of pristine conservancy land. Surrounded by mature forests and situated away from major roads, the centre sits on a preserved jewel in the wilderness.

In 2013, when Walter and Elly Loewen offered Focus on the Family Canada this gift of land to be used specifically for a retreat centre, Focus Canada felt God’s direction in expanding their ministry. And one year later, Kerith Pines opened its doors, glorifying God and providing a message of hope and rest for those in the prairie provinces. 

Things to do:

  • Kerith Pines has numerous walking trails and secluded areas of rest with beautiful views of its rich natural landscape
  • Falcon Lake (about half an hour east) offers beachside walks, horseback riding and a delicious bakery, among other things
  • Whiteshell Provincial Park (past Falcon Lake) boasts several lakes, scenic drives and walking trails
  • Kenora, Ont. (an hour east) is a great place to go for a boat tour, plane rides or just to enjoy the lakeside shops and restaurants

While there are lots of things to see and do in the surrounding area, we do encourage you not to fill up your time being busy but rather take advantage of the stillness and natural beauty of Kerith Pines.

Accommodations:

  • Enjoy one of four beautiful private suites with a fireplace, private bathroom, queen-sized bed, kitchenette, and sitting area
  • Numerous quiet, secluded areas to relax and unwind
  • Hot tub with view of surrounding natural beauty
  • Delicious and nutritious meals and snacks are provided during your stay
  • Host couple will handle all clean-up, giving you the opportunity to have a break
