25% or More Discount for Couples in Christian Ministry:

 Christian Hospitality Network -
CHN is a volunteer network of Christian owned bed & breakfast inns who's owners & innkeepers have agreed to offer to any persons in Christian ministry from any denomination a 25% discount for stays in their B&B inns.  Some restrictions do apply with some blocked-out dates for some of those participating.  These participating B&B's offer the same bed & breakfast amenities and services as they normally offer to all guests at full price, but do not offer sabbatical retreats, nor study programs.  The discount is a courtesy for persons who are dedicated to Christian ministry.

Fellow Pastor Retreat Ministry with Counseling and a Study Program:

Pastor Retreat Network -
PRN is a full-time Christian ministry, primarily serving as a Pastors retreat and also inviting other persons from various service carriers to engage in a peaceful sabbatical retreat with a study program.  PRN has a home base of operation with guest facilities and utilizes some bed & breakfast inns under seasonal contract to take persons in Christian ministry from all denominations for rest, study and rejuvenation.  Co-founder of PRN, Betty Molloy has been a dear friend, prayer partner and counselor as Mike & Ann sought to determine how our Heavenly Father intended for SHELTER Sanctuary Ministries to be established, including the direction of ministry.  We highly recommend PRN to those who are searching for direction and in need of their services which includes a fine Bible study program.

Be-Bop "Rock 'n Roll" to Christian Worship:

Blend Quartet -

Mike & Ann first enjoyed the talent & music of Blend Quartet in concert as guest artists of the Kentucky Opry here locally in Draffenville, just six miles away from Aire Castle.  As Mike & Ann prepared to lead a weekend Marriage Enrichment Seminar in Alabama in January of 2007, we invited Blend Quartet to go with us to provide entertainment for the Seminar.  They did a great job and we all had a lot of fun.  Blend Quartet enjoys presenting Be-Bop type old "rock n' roll" songs, A' capella only, for good clean entertainment, but they also present their Christian testimony in song with traditional hymns and acknowledging their faith & trust in God in every concert performance.  Blend Quartet will gladly sing for revivals, worship services and special events as well as giving concerts for fundraisers, festivals and all other special events.  Blend Quartet gets our highest recommendation for a professional concert to suit your occasion.  Contact Johnny at to discuss your needs.

Excellent Traditional Irish Music:

Ric Blair Band -

The Celtic music of the Ric Blair Band is unsurpassed.  This award winning group hails from Irish & Scottish roots transplanted in the hills of Kentucky & Tennessee where many of us are just beginning to discover our rich heritage of the Gaelic.  Ric, his wife and band have performed in Ireland where they received a very warm welcome, as well as performing at several Celtic festivals and other secular events, but their favorite thing to do, as Christians, is to share the love of our Lord God with you in joyful celebration of Celtic music.  Aire Castle highly recommends Ric Blair Band for concerts in your church, or any other function.  Visit their web site to see their story and hear a sample of their music.

Make Your Honeymoon Dreams a Reality!

Aire Castle Honeymooners agree that staying at Aire Castle Inn B&B is the best Honeymoon they could have.

"Run-&-Gun" Honeymoons are often a gross disappointment.  Newly married couples are torn between spending time with each other, which is what they really want most, or sight-seeing in some far-off place.  Save your trip to the Bahamas, to Paris, or where ever for your first or second Anniversary.  Come to Aire Castle for privacy, peacefulness and a quiet romantic Honeymoon.
