Testimonials

Denise K.

Wonderful retreat with all the comforts of home. We didn’t want to leave!

Xena W.

The Retreat is a great place for quilting or relaxing with family and friends. The large cutting area, dry irons, sewing areas and supplies in case you forgot to bring something is great. It was handy being able to rent a sewing machine. The house is delightfully decorated. It is a quaint home with modern comforts. The couches are comfortably and I love the huge kitchen. We were lazy and tried the different restaurants for fun each day. Especially since it was walking distance from the shops, restaurants, and bike/walking trail. It was so nice sitting outside in the back. I love, love that hammock!! The welcome bottle of wine was a nice touch. I would definitely recommend The Retreat. We loved it so much that we made reservations for next year.

Kathy W.

The Retreat was wonderful.  We have never had a better retreat experience. The house, the location, all the comfort of home, and the beautiful outdoor area. The chairs for sewing were so comfortable, good lighting, and cutting/ironing area was great. We will be back, for sure. 

Carolyn A.

Thank you so much for a wonderful place to stay and have our group event. The Retreat is a wonderful place to get together with friends. The amenities are awesome, comfortable, convenient and the proximity to restaurants and the bike path is icing on the cake. We loved our stay and look forward to our next visit in the fall.

Denise P.

The Retreat is a large, wonderfully decorated, and well stocked getaway! We enjoyed our escape from reality and immersed ourselves in quilting. The host is very responsive and has thought of every amenity necessary. Looking forward to our next stay!

Janine K.

Very comfortable, well outfitted retreat for quilters. Good lighting, and not having to haul in my own chair, ironing board and sewing table is wonderful. Would recommend.

Sharon H.

3rd time here and this place continues to amaze me! Can’t wait for round 4!
