How do I make arrangements and reservations?

If you'd like to get further information, discuss ideas for a group retreat, make reservations for your personal or group retreat, make professional referrals or make appointments for spiritual direction, call Bethabara's hosts, Mary Van Andel or Ben Sikkink, at (269) 857-7010 or email at

Mary and Ben welcome your visits to Bethabara by arrangement. Driving by will tell you very little about Bethabara except perhaps the latest project underway. Mary and Ben ask that you call or email to arrange a visit. This courtesy helps them prepare for your visit, enables you to see and understand the facilities and grounds, and protects the privacy of retreatants and people engaged in spiritual direction or group retreats.



Where is Bethabara?

Bethabara is just 3 miles outside Saugatuck, Michigan, and very near Saugatuck Dunes State Park. Bethabara can be found by taking interstate 196 to exit 41 - Saugatuck.
At the exit, turn west toward Saugatuck: after a few hundred feet, turn right or north on 64th Street for nine-tenths of a mile. The driveway is marked by large white pillars topped by pine cones. Please call (269) 857-7010 or email to arrange for a time to visit.
