Local Driving Directions

 

From Tazewell:

 

From the intersection of Highway 25E and Highway 33 in Tazewell, go North on the combined Highways 25E/33 just 1/10th of a mile (to the first signaled intersection) and turn right onto Cedar Fork Road (State Route 345). Go 8.1 miles on Cedar Fork Road – there are small green Mile Marker signs on the right side of the road – and then turn left onto Narrows Road, a graveled, one-lane County Road. You’ll see our "Welcome to Well Being Retreat Center" sign at the entrance to Narrows Road.

On Narrows Road:

Please drive slow and be patient with cattle – Narrows Road goes through our neighbor’s pastures. Please do not disturb our neighbors by stopping to ask further directions; be brave and continue on Narrows Road for 1 mile until you pass through two rock entry pillars and see Well Being's entry kiosk.  At the Kiosk, bear right though the gate and follow the gravel drive along the river. (For scheduled events, we’ll put out small directional signs with our logo to follow.)

Entering Well Being Retreat Center

 

When you pass between two rock pillars you will be on the grounds of the Well Being Retreat Center. At our Entry Kiosk (pictured to the left) bear right through the gate and you will see the Powell River to your right. Follow the small directional signs to the main Conference Building if you are coming to a group event. If you are stopping by or renting a cabin, please come to Well Being's Office to check-in.To get to our office, take your second right after the gate. You can park in the gravel parking lot near the silo. Well Being Retreat Center's Office is in the building next to the parking lot. (There are also men's and women's bathrooms there if you've had a long drive.)

Please Call Ahead

 

We want to ensure that we are here to greet you when you arrive, so before you drive all the way up here, please make prior confirmed arrangements.

If you are on the road headed this way  and need to call, it would be best to call in Tazewell, that is, before getting onto Cedar Fork Road, where cell phone service is very patchy. Once you get to Narrows Road (and on the grounds of Well Being Retreat Center), Verizon is the only cell phone provider that works (in most, but not all, places).  More on-site phone guidance here.
