Our new - and permanent - home sits high on a mountaintop near Millerstown, PA, thanks to the vision of Gary and Jean Miller of North Topsail, NC.  Our site looks out upon a broad vista that includes the approaches to Selinsgrove, PA, some forty miles away.  Surrounded by more than two hundred acres of woodland, it is hard to imagine that US Route 22-322, is scarcely two miles away.  Road noise disappears and one can see the hawks riding on the thermals.  It is a truly beautiful place—a space for grace.


Orchard Hill's facilities include a picnic pavilion, labyrinth and hiking trails, and an all-weather adult retreat facility.  It includes four double-occupancy bedrooms,  two with private bath and two with a semi-private bath; two single bedrooms with a semi-private bath; a kitchen-dining room; a great room with fireplace; and a handicapped-accessible bathroom.  A propane-fired generator runs the utilities.
