Each year the Meher Spiritual Center welcomes thousands of visitors who have an interest in learning more about the life and message of Avatar Meher Baba and experiencing the unique atmosphere here.

If you have never stayed at the Center before, please see First-time Retreat to find out how to contact us about coming for an overnight retreat for the first time.

It is preferred that reservations be made by phone (843-272-5777, 9am - 5pm EST, 7 days a week). However, if you are a return guest, reservations can also be made by email ( or regular mail (Meher Spiritual Center, 10200 N. Kings Hwy., Myrtle Beach, SC 29572).

Note, however, that nonphone messages might not be read until a full day or more after they are received.

The furthest ahead reservations may be made is approximately two months. On the first of each month, we begin taking reservations for any time during the month that is two months ahead. For example, as of July 1st, you can make a reservation that begins any time in September; as of August 1st, you can make a reservation that begins any time in October; and so on. The length of a retreat may be anywhere from one night up to two weeks.

Be aware that no alcohol or illegal drugs, including marijuana, may be brought to the Center. Also, pets are not allowed. A flashlight is needed at night and covered shoes (not sandals) are to be worn at all times outdoors. Please read our Directives for details.

When making your reservation, please:

1) Call in your own reservation, and ask others to call in theirs, rather than trying to do it for someone else.
2) Be ready with full names of everyone in your party, ages of children, date of arrival, expected arrival time and the date of your departure. Note that the arrival time is a BIG help to the cabin crew and Gateway staff in being ready for you when you arrive. Arrival by 5:oo p.m. is preferred, but no later than 9:00 p.m. First-time visitors need to arrive by 3:30 p.m. Rooms are available for occupancy at 2:00 p.m. Vacate time is 11:00 a.m. If you would like an airport pickup, please see the Airport Pickup Service section.
3) Let us know if this is only your second or third visit to the Center, or if it has been a long time since your last visit.
4) Let us know of any special needs you may have (cribs, wheelchair access, etc).
