Heritage Full of Heart

The WinShape Retreat campus has a long and beautiful history. Our stately French-inspired buildings were initially used to house the student-run dairy enterprise of Berry College. Seventy years into the operation, Berry College decided to move the dairy to its main campus, and the complex was left vacant. Around this same time, Truett and Jeannette Cathy visited the property and felt as though it was the ideal location to grow the ministry of their WinShape Foundation. In fact, upon setting foot on the property, the Cathy's felt they were standing on holy ground. Plans were soon made to transform the empty dairy barns into what is now WinShape Retreat.

The retreat officially began hosting visitors in 2003.

Throughout the property's large-scale, adaptive-reuse renovation, the Cathy’s preserved Martha Berry’s original design, expanding on her vision to provide a safe, welcoming place for guests to experience transformation. Martha Berry’s dream for her awe-inspiring mountain campus continues to be fulfilled with every group hosted and every life changed.
