The UR Lodge

lodge_1_1The Goure residence is where it all began, back in the ‘70’s, with the Goure family, friends and prayer groups envisioning a Light Center dedicated to prayers for the planet. In 1992, the Goure’s home was purchased by United Research, Inc. so that it would remain an integral part of the UR mission.

Now referred to as The UR Lodge, this wonderful stone structure currently has 8 suites available for Light Center visitors, workshop participants, and personal retreats. The Lodge is also an ideal spot for group events, classes, and in-residence workshops.

lodge_03_2Open year-round and within easy walking distance to the Light Center, the UR Lodge is newly renovated with a spacious kitchen and private bathrooms. Kitchen privileges are available, including limited refrigerator and shelf space for personal food items. A continental breakfast, linens and towels are provided.

lodge_02_2The spiritual artwork, stone fireplace, and deep serenity make it the perfect retreat location. Image yourself on our stone terrace watching the sunrise over the Appalachian Mountains! We invite you to join us here at the spot many refer to as “their mountain home.”
