Timothy Prayer Cabin

The Timothy Prayer Cabin was built in memory of Timothy Olson, a 24-year-old aspiring young architect who lost his life while on a volunteer mission to build a church in Africa. An exceptional young man, Tim discovered the joy of service, even through the struggles of living and working in a strange land within a vastly different culture. Tim’s life was cut all too short, but he leaves a legacy of commitment and servanthood. Tim’s family and friends have built the cabin, not only as a memorial to him, but as a contribution to a special ministry to people who want to deepen their walk with their Lord.

Cabin Information

The Timothy Prayer Cabin, a beautifully handcrafted four-season 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, desk, rocker, and comfortable fold down double bed/futon.

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.

FAQ

How have these Prayer Cabins come to be?

Each 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.

Can I come before the 3 pm check-in time?

You are welcome to come enjoy The Wilderness, walk trails or sit by the lake, however, the earliest facility “check in” time is 3 pm. Please make every effort to keep the check in time you told us when you made your reservation and is on your confirmation email. If you are going to be late, please call and let us know your arrival time. (Please leave a message if no answer.)

Do you keep my credit card number on file?
