The retreat has many wonderful amenities, Each day when the room is tidied, fresh-baked cookies are left behind, and coffee, tea, and hot cocoa are always available.
Most cottages come with a jacuzzi, walk-in shower, fireplace, and a kitchen with a mini fridge and microwave as well as silverware and dinnerware. Each room also has A/C, heat, satellite TV, and WiFi, and there are back porches on the cottages.
The lovely folks who own this marvelous place prepare an exquisite breakfast each morning between 8:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. Hearty portions of pancakes and sausage, eggs and biscuits, and many other breakfast delights are served off a fixed menu at no added cost.
