A Bit Of A Hike

Some guests noted that it is a bit of a hike to the retreat from town and that the road is steep and winding uphill which is somewhat challenging for those with limited mobility issues.

No Food For Sale On Site

Guests remark that there is no food for sale onsite, so one must remember to stock up on everything you need for meals from town.

No Wi-Fi

A few guests commented that there is no Wi-Fi onsite and that it was an inconvenience to have to go into town to use their electronic devices. Others commented on how refreshing it was to have a break from technology.
