Feedback from Travelers
A great experience. Megan and her husband Davis are really trying to create something unique here. The rooms could use a bit of updating but I understand that is in near future plans. The food was excellent here. Megan is a lovely, warm, person and very helpful.
Meghan was a great host! This was a great place for me to start, maybe especially as I was traveling alone. The other guests were friendly and had advice, and the Retreat staff were all very eager to help.
A small lodge with a very homey feeling. Rustic but charming. The owner went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable and enjoyed our stay
