About Kavanaugh Conference & Retreat Center
Kavanaugh Conference & Retreat Center blends the old with the new. Our rich history dates back to 1875 when it was founded by Bishop H.H. Kavanaugh as a place for ministry and renewal. Times have changed but we continue to carry out his dream. Nestled on 55 wooded acres in Crestwood, Ky., the spectacular conference center, lodge facility, cabins and lake make it the ideal venue for weddings, receptions, business conferences, seminars, retreats, and for mental and spiritual renewal. The modern, fully accessible Holloway Conference Center with its soaring views of the wooded serenity seats up to 250 at tables or 350 auditorium style. The large equipped serving kitchen and separate narthex allow for a smooth transition for serving reception guests. Other amenities include advanced audio/visual facilities, teleconferencing and high speed access. You’ll love the southern charm of our welcoming wraparound decks complete with rocking chairs and plenty of room to mingle and converse. You can plan your wedding ceremony for our McDowell Auditorium, built in 1875. This just may be the perfect spot for your open air wedding. This multi-purpose facility can provide seating for up to 500 and maintains the tradition of the more rustic camp meeting tradition under towering Tulip Poplar trees. Lodging is also available for your out- of-town guests. Foeman Lodge with its 22 motel style rooms, allows guests to enjoy a serene view of our lake. Our guests enjoy experiencing nature walking the miles of trails that meander through Kavanaugh’s grounds. Call us today. We want to help make your dream wedding a reality and Kavanaugh may be the perfect place. Kavanaugh Conference and Retreat Center, only 25 minutes from downtown Louisville, yet light-years from the ordinary.
