The Prayer Lookout

Personal Prayer Retreat Options

The prayer lookout is currently closed.

We are accepting reservations at Harbor Villa Captains Cabin and Lower Deck for individuals and couples while the prayer lookout is closed.

Twin Rocks offers two options for individuals seeking personal prayer retreats:

  1. The Prayer Lookout (described on this page), for those desiring time alone in a prayer cabin; and
  2. Sabbath by the Sea, for people desiring a personal retreat under the tutelage of a spiritual director or guide, and in the community of others.

The Prayer Lookout provides a setting that makes it easy to listen to God. The purpose of the Prayer Lookout is to provide a quiet location for prayer, Christian meditation, personal Bible Study, and private relationship building with the Lord.


Surrounded by nature with a sensational view of the Pacific Ocean, the Prayer Lookout has been designed for an overnight stay for one or two guests.


Sleeping amenities include a day bed with a trundle bed, sheets, blankets and pillows. The facility is also equipped with a restroom and kitchenette, including a microwave, toaster oven, refrigerator, cooking utensils, dishes, table, and chairs. Showers are available at our Central Restroom facility.


This building was given to Twin Rocks Friends Camp as a memorial to Peggy Cadd. She was involved over many years as a camper, counselor, staff, and board member. She is remembered as a person of diligent prayer.

“I want you to know how very much I enjoyed staying at the Prayer Lookout. It was a privilege and I am very thankful. This was the best time alone that I’ve ever had with the Lord. I came here for solitude and rest away from the rush of life. I came away with more than I could have imagined: peace, healing, and refreshment. God met me here! What a sacred place this is! Again, thank you.”

“Then, because so many people were coming and going that they did not even have a chance to eat, He said to them, ‘Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.” Mark 6:31
