Klawitter Prayer Cabin

The Klawitter Prayer Cabin was built in memory of Pastor and Mrs. W. E. Klawitter, fondly known as Ernie and Ethel. Ernest faithfully served as a Pastor, Chaplain, Teacher, Radio Pastor on the ‘Psalm of Life’, Evangelist, and Camp Director. He also served as an advisor to The Wilderness Fellowship Ministries Board in its beginning. Ernie and Ethel were motivated by the love of Jesus and freely gave of themselves so that others would know their Lord and be built up and encouraged in their faith. With this in mind, we, their family and friends, offer The Klawitter Memorial Prayer Cabin as a quiet place for you to have an encounter with Jesus.

Cabin Information

The Klawitter Prayer Cabin, a beautifully handcrafted log cabin with attached screen porch, is tucked neatly in the woods. It has electric heat, air-conditioning, microwave oven, toaster, refrigerator, coffee maker, dishes, silverware, a sink and water jug for drinking and cooking needs and miscellaneous utensils. In seeking to make your stay as comfortable as possible, we have provided a queen size bed in the loft, table and chairs, rocker and comfortable fold down double bed/futon on the main floor.

Both a very modern, well lit, heated pit toilet is near the cabin and a fully modern bathroom with shower is available close by. View a photo tour of our shower house and outhouses.

To access the prayer cabin, a short downhill hike is required.

There is a fire ring area nearby that the Prayer Cabin guests can share and firewood for campfires is available for purchase on site. Check with office.

How have these Prayer Cabins come to be?

Many of the prayer cabins has been provided for by a specific family in honor or memory of a loved one.  These families have provided/donated all the necessary funds and input to build the cabin. We work closely with each family to create a cabin fitting to our call and mission. You could also invest in hundreds of people’s lives by funding a cabin. Please contact Randy if interested.

Are there bathrooms in the prayer cabins?

Modern, lighted, heated, no smell outhouses are located close by.  Also, there is a fully modern shower house and flush toilets that serves the whole prayer cabins village.  See photos of the modern shower house and outhouses.
