    Venue Experience

    We had an amazing experience at the Retreat. The staff were incredibly helpful and responsive. The grounds were well-kept. And all of our guests loved their time here! We are thankful they also helped us reschedule due to COVID. Really highly recommend!

    The perfect venue for an intimate wedding

    My husband and I decided early on to have a 100-count guest list for our December wedding. It was important to us to have a venue that accommodated that size but did not feel too big. The majority of guests would be traveling from out of state so we also wanted onsite accommodations. After touring The Retreat, we knew it was the perfect balance of all we wanted for our wedding. The three ceremony sites gave us peace of mind that no matter what the weather was like, we could switch plans easily and get married in a beautiful setting. We filled all 12 cabins with friends and family who arrived Friday and stayed until Sunday morning. Instead of a rehearsal dinner, we did a Welcome party with all our wedding guests which was so fun and let us have more time with everyone. The venue also had a “wedding closet” which housed tons of decor items and furniture that can be used however you want them to. The best thing about booking The Retreat was working with Megan, their venue coordinator. She was responsive, organized and so kind - she even went out and bought an iron within the same hour of me realizing our cabin didn’t have one! I’m so glad we found this hidden gem and look forward to more stays at The Retreat.
