We have been to many retreat centers and this one is at the top of the list. The grounds, cabins and pools are impeccably kept. Gift shop is glorious (although we didn't purchase anything). Showers.... more

We went for our first visit since the fire. Driving in and reading the fire wall is heart breaking, but the experience is still amazing. They lost a lot of cabins, and things are in flux, but it is yet a peaceful retreat with most excellent hot water. The library was sacrificed for overnight guests and the food service worked differently but we easily found other places to lounge and thought our lunch was as delicious as ever.
Great experience. We will go back for sure. However, if you have a food allergy beware! When we were there they served a gluten free bread, and we thought, wow this is the best gluten free bread ever! Turns out it wasn’t gluten free. I don’t think they are very strict on their food allergy practice . Be careful. Other than that it was a fantastic time.
