Beautiful retreat

We just got married here and couldn't have asked for a more beautiful site.The community center and covered patio area offered everything we needed to enjoy spending time with friends and family in a well-equipped, clean cabin-like Center. The house is absolutely gorgeous, and peaceful beyond imagination. We watch the stars from the patio and our skylight in the master bedroom.we really appreciated the owner's involvement with helping us get set up and can't wait to come back for anniversary. Our guests kept telling us how peaceful, and beautiful this event was and actually got to stay for a couple of days with us making our wedding even more memorable.I would highly recommend it to anyone who wanted their family to stay in a beautiful home and in a remote hillside retreat. It was absolutely beautiful.

Eureka Mtn Institute

This was the most fabulous location for a wedding I could ever imagine! The house was absolutely beautiful, clean and eloquent down to every detail. The community center was a terrific place to gather with family and friends and prepare food in a warm cozy environment. You would have to see the beautiful wedding pictures to appreciate the true beauty of this property. Our friends and family were thrilled with the garden, covered patio, campsite, RV sites and how well kept everything was. Steve helped us tremendously, above and beyond what was expected and we just can't thank him enough. The entire four days were like a dream vacation.

Perfect Wedding Day!

We went to visit the property in snowy March and knew the potential it had come Fall. It was the first and last place we looked at to hold the wedding. It has it all! We had our ceremony on the stage, our reception at the garden house, and we stayed in the beautiful house. It was so nice to be able to stay at the property and take care of all of the things that needed to get done. We also had some friends who stayed in the canvas tents, others in camping tents, and others brought RVs. Steve was AMAZING! He was incredibly helpful in answering all our logistic questions and was a great resource for local businesses that we could tap in to for our wedding needs. Steve was present and involved and really made the whole experience go so smoothly, we couldn't have been happier. The property is beautiful, but unfortunately because we were so busy getting ready for everything we didn't get a chance to truly take it all in…so we will be back for a visit just to stay and relax there! I recommend that you stay there whether you are there with just your family or have a larger event, it was great!

Winter Wonderland

Our family (6 adults and 3 kids) was lucky enough to land this place for a Christmas vacation. The house is quite unique and enjoyable. Steve supplied us with plenty of wood to keep the fire going. The location was fantastic! It snowed about a foot shortly after we arrived. The land allowed us to create a few sledding runs which entertained us all. We loved the privacy and nature. Steve is very easy going and was eager to make sure we were comfortable. It was a great stay!
