Thank you for this lovely review and peak into your stay here. I love that you could see and enjoy the details and love we put into the space. It is truly a delight for us when people bask in the healing qualities of the space and the land. It's also part of our mission to create a retreat where people can rest into some time away from daily routines to tune in, breathe and let the day open up. Thank you for staying with us. We are truly heart warmed to know you had such a great stay.
