    "Thank you for welcoming us into this beautiful, incredibly special, place. I really had the most wonderful time here, enjoying the peace and solitude, the time to reflect, and to be with nature. It has been a very special weekend. You have provided a very comfortable, safe environment in which to explore myself, and it has been perfect. The food was wonderful too. I do hope to return some day soon."

    "My first retreat of any kind, and I had a great new experience. I found the walking a challenge but in a good way. Sunday’s walk was very special. I loved the yoga and the meditation. Overall it was a very valuable and enjoyable weekend. The people who run the retreat care for it very deeply and it feels special. Thank you!"
