Welcome to Airydale Retreat! We are so glad you have stopped by to check out what we are all about! Airydale Retreat is a family operated retreat center dedicated to promoting rest and relaxation, with an emphasis on simple, nature-focused living. The property has been designed to allow for a more individualized retreat, while also promoting community through indoor and outdoor common gathering areas. Feel free to head over to Our Dream page to check out our long-term plans.



Hello! My name is Matt Zook. I am a 2018 graduate from Penn State and a Project Manager at a local construction company. In my free time you can typically find me building, creating, or maintaining outdoors or in the shop!


We are Bob and Ethel Zook. As Matt’s parents, we appreciate his leadership in the emerging dream and plans for Airydale Retreat. We treasure our on-going relationships with him and our married daughter and her family. Our lives include several roles: grandparenting, teaching, and pastoring. In addition, we have founded Seven Acres Ministry, a local non-profit organization.
