Important Update

The health and safety of guests and team members is of utmost importance. Even though no COVID-19 cases have been tied to Ridgecrest Conference Center at this point, we have made the decision to not host events and guests (including individual stays) through April 30, 2020. We will continue to monitor additional developments and reassess as appropriate.

Previously made reservations for stays before April 30th will be canceled and fully refunded. Please note that credit card refunds typically take several business days to process.

Planners of events scheduled at Ridgecrest before April 30th: A member of our sales team will contact you to discuss rescheduling possibilities.

In these unprecedented circumstances, please join our team in praying for our communities, our nation, and our world.
