Frequently Answered Questions:


  • Cabins 2 through 6 and the cottage:

    Include full kitchen w/microwave & restroom with full amenities fixtures & shower; queen bed & fireplace. Cabins average 150 feet apart. Privacy is not an issue at the retreat, generally, because everything is well-spaced. For the genteel or romantically inclined, I recommend either the cottage or Cabin 5. Ideal for the extended honeymoon or romantic hideaway. For those with pets: 6. Both have river views. It's best to look at all the cabins as pictured on the website, for everyone has their preference.

    The website contains many pictures of facilities available & the grounds, as well as, valuable information as to what to bring, etc., ... you will find it well worth your while for it also contains photographs & maps of nice places to stop along the way and near the retreat.

    I advise printing any of this information that might be of interest to you and bringing it along for reference -- especially how to get here and any other useful information. The website is very comprehensive, informative, interesting & pleasant to browse ... after all anticipation is usually half the fun.
