    Becky Bennett - Stefan Rucki Wedding | December 30, 2017
    I cannot say enough about this venue and the wonderful folks who work there! Megan & Phyllis, yall made the whole experience, from first contact to saying goodbye, so easy, so special, and perfect. I couldn't have asked for sweeter, more helpful ladies to work with. You do your respective jobs very well. The venue is beautiful and was perfect for our needs. It suited what we were looking for both in natural surroundings and esthetics, as well as lodging. Everything was so perfect, we hated to leave. The ceremony sites are well thought out and we were sold on the venue before ever seeing it in person. The cabins are nicely appointed, comfortable, and very neat and clean (thank you Phyllis!). All of our guests were impressed with the venue and cabins. Several of the family - on both sides of the bride and groom - were discussing coming back for family retreats. We are very much looking forward to coming back again! Thanks so much for helping to make our daughter and son-in-law's wedding something extra special! We feel we left having made new friends. [will share photos at later date]

    I may be a little biased, but this is the most beautiful venue I've ever been to. From the moment I saw the barn chapel, I knew that is where we would get married. I loved all of the string lights everywhere on the property and the overall rustic feel. Another thing that sold me was that they have a lot of decorations available that we could use for the ceremony and reception. All of the tables, chairs, and linens were included with venue rental. I think the only thing that we had to bring in were the flowers.

    We had lots of family come in from out of town and they are still raving about the Retreat. Megan in the office was an absolute joy to work with and she answered every single one of my questions and put me at ease while wedding planning. If I had to do it all over again, I'd definitely choose this place over and over again.
