History of the YMCA Peniel - Sea of Galilee

The building, also known as the Harte Villa, was built for Dr. Archibald Harte, who was General Secretary of the Jerusalem YMCA in the 1920's, and after Harte's death it became one of the association's guest houses. This idyllic 13-room guesthouse is ideally located directly on the western shore of the Sea of Galilee. It is the only Christian guesthouse that has a private beach. Situated just north of Ginosar, the property offers excellent proximity ( within a 10 minute drive) to the the Migdala ruins, the 1st century Jesus boat attraction contained in the museum at Ginosar, Tabgha, Capernaum, Peter's Primacy and the Mount of Beatitudes.
