Words can not describe how perfect our wedding at sky retreat was. Every guest was amazed with the view and many said it was the best wedding they had ever been to. The staff at sky retreat are so accommodating and I do not have a single bad word to say about them. I wouldn't change a single thing! It was very nice that we could block off all of the cabins on site and have many of our bridal party and guests stay there. There is also a larger cabin on air bnb right on site and that housed much of our family. Very convenient! Park Vista Inn is where many of our guests stayed and it was right down the parkway. If you are considering getting married here, do it! You will not regret it!Sent on 09/22/2020
