Four rooms are motel style which could comfortably occupy a family of six. The other four rooms have a suite configuration with three beds, a sink and toilet. Each suite shares the shower with the other half of the room.
The dining/meeting space provides kitchen space for do-it-yourself meals or you may request food service from a local caterer.

From the North: I-95 to 40 E to Wilmington, then 321S/College Road (as 40 ends), follow to 421S.
From the South: 17 N across Cape Fear Memorial Bridge (421S merged with 17 before crossing the bridge). Turn right onto 3rd street, which is part of 421.
Continue following signs for Carolina Beach or 421S.

Once on 421 South, heading toward Carolina Beach, continue south until you cross the bridge over the Intracoastal Waterway (approximately 10 miles from junction of 17 & 76). This is also called “Snow’s Cut.”
Bear to the right at the second traffic light after crossing Snow’s Cut, following the road that passes the water tower. There will be a sign that says Carolina Beach State Park. You are now on Dow Road. Follow Dow Road for 4 miles until you reach the traffic light, which is located directly in front of the pier. Turn right onto Fort Fisher Ave., and continue for ½ mile. On the left-hand side you will see the Faith Center, a two-story brick building with a cross on top.
Stay on 421 after crossing Snow’s Cut. Continue through Carolina Beach to Kure Beach. A couple of times along the way the road changes names until becoming Fort Fisher Ave., but is always 421. Continue straight through traffic light at Kure Beach (pier is on left) and continue for ½ mile. On the left-hand side you will see the Faith Center, a two-story brick building with a cross on top.
