About Melinda Ross

The Hiding Place is owned and operated by Christian Leadership Concepts, Inc. (CLC) a not-for-profit ministry that "equips men for a lifetime of leadership" in their homes, churches and the marketplace. CLC is an in-depth program that puts 12 men together to focus on developing close friendships and going deeper in God's word. It is a leadership program based on Ephesians 4:11-13.

Melinda Ross purchased this lodge in 2002

Why Melinda Ross chose Clarksville

CLC chose this location so that our men's groups would have a place to get away and reflect on things that are of importance. We wanted it to be secluded but not too far from Nashville. We have found that other groups like to use it for strategic planning sessions, staff retreats, family reunions, etc. It is a great place to get away from the bustle of life but still close enough to exciting activities (Nashville, Clarksville and Ashland City, TN).

What makes this lodge unique

In the early morning it is not unusual to see various forms of wild life (turkeys, deer, waterfowl). The back porch is a relaxing place to sit and watch the occasional tugboat go by on the river or watch a hawk or eagle as they fly around. The Hiding Place is a very peaceful and restful get away.

Perfect Home for Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

There was 18 adults and 3 children that stayed at The Hiding Place. There was PLENTY of room in this beautiful home. It was a wonderful trip and lots of memories were made. Melinda and Larry were so wonderful and made our reservations so easy. They were quick to respond when making our reservations and answered any questions we had. I am hoping to get back to Tennessee and will definitely stay here again!

Amazing getaway for a team gathering!

  • 5 of 5

The Hiding Place perfectly met our team's needs for our weekend gathering of 17 volunteer and full-time team members. It had enough privacy in the individual rooms not to feel intrusive while simultaneously having large gathering and dining spaces that promoted team unity. Melinda and Larry did a great job communicating with us in the run-up to the event and made sure we had everything we needed. We would definitely use this site again.

We had more room than we needed. Each bedroom with private bath is hard to find. Great views, large gathering room, well stocked and lots of property to explore!

Great Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our group of extended family enjoyed a great long weekend at the Hiding Place! There is plenty of room for everyone and the house is beautiful. We really enjoyed the beautiful, secluded setting with lots of room outside to play and explore. We will definitely come back to the Hiding Place for future stays.
