"Wow what a wonderful little oasis! Our stay here was absolutely perfect. Our only regret is that we couldn't enjoy it longer. Michelle was the most gracious and helpful hostess. She went out of her way to make sure everything was perfect for us, even when we had to switch dates and ended up arriving late. Breakfast was absolutely delicious and the view from the Guest Hall was breathtaking. We loved every minute of our time here we will most certainly be back in the future!"
Jordan & Cristy Davis, Palo Alto, CA 11.28.13
"We are left wondering if this place was made for us specifically. We biked in from Florence, cursed the last little climb up to WildSpring, and finally enjoyed ourselves for the next 16 hours here. The hot tub and the breakfast are among the highlights of this place. Thanks so much for a great stay."
John & Callie, Boulder CO 11.26.13
"This was the most wonderful retreat have ever been on. I thank God & all who are able to make it so. This is from our room & deep in our hearts. God bless."

Daniel, Ashland, OR 9.2.09
"Thank you for creating, so lovingly, a habitat dedicated to serenity! For me, the labyrinth, the hammocks, and the comfy bed were the perfect ingredients for some R&R, and a most inviting way to end an 11-hour drive. I was delighted by the whimsical surprises that greeted me everywhere I looked, and even when I wasn't looking. I needed a place to just be, and here I get to do that for a whole day! (2 nights highly recommended). A magical place!"
Cheryl, David, Melanie C., Berkley CA 8.19.09
"The beauty of the trees as the sun seeps through, the quiet, the comfortable cabins, the view, laying on the hammock with my husband brings peace to the soul. Strolling & seeing a doe & fawn in the quiet (though we see them in our own yard) leaves you awestruck. Our prayer is for those who stay in this cabin to find that peace - whatever is going on in your world. Look up to the sky & know this didn't just happen There is a one true God who made ALL of this beauty. It isn't the cute statue, the stones, the labyrinth, the empty shell of Mary? that will bring you peace, though it may quiet your heart. Walk around & contemplate the God of the Universe, His con, His Spirit & KNOW HE CARES FOR YOU. He wants you to chill, enjoy, laugh, and live in this world knowing He is the true answer. May God bless your stay. No - I'm not some weirdo. I just look around & see the God we know & love not recognized in any way - whether in a book in the guest house nor a small plaque. But guess what folks he is bigger than all that & He is here with you today. So as you take in the amazing view we pray you will find peace & hope in your todays & tomorrows. May God bring a smile upon your face today."
Jay & Kathleen, Huntsville, AL 8.11.09

I have never found such a seamless melding of the two. Luxurious, without tacky. Cozy without clutter, woodsy and decorated with taste! Our only regret is not enough time here. I could have spent an entire day on the hammocks along! We will definitely return. This is truly a magical place. It relaxes the soul. Thank you."

“To those who have come and those who have yet to arrive, prepare yourselves for a special retreat. Michelle and Dean have created an environment that allows you the freedom to create your own vacation paradise! This cabin was the perfect spot for us to renew our love, after a very long absence. No distraction, no hype, no neon, just top notch amenities that gave us the “at home’ feeling. We measured the days, not by our watches, but when the sun rose and set. You too will discover the magic and quickly realize you were meant to be here. Explore the grounds with a careful eye! So much to discover in the landscape (find the rose). Our one wish for all who visit.... Enjoy the escape, soak each other up, be grateful for the time together, say ‘thank you,’ and be well as you re-enter your world that awaits you!"
Vernon (CA) and Kathy (OR) XOXOXOX 3.24.09
