This place has it all! We recently stayed for 3 nights and got married on the gorgeous property. The accommodations were better than we could have imagined, the owners Jenna and Jeff did not miss one single detail when creating this gem :) There is so much to do not only right on their property but just a stones throw away in the village. We live about 20 minutes away but felt worlds apart at the retreat. If nuptials are in your future I highly recommend you check them out for your special day. Our day was perfect and Jenna and Jeff were so easy going and accommodating to help with whatever we needed. I could go on and on about this place and can’t wait for our next visit!!

Fantastic! There is no other word to describe Willow Barrel Retreat. We stayed for 10 days and enjoyed the wonderful environment. The cabins are so well designed and have all the amenities you would want in a self contained place. Jeff and Jemma (owners) have poured their hearts and souls into making it very special and you notice it all. They are simply great people who ensure your stay is outstanding. I highly recommend staying here if you are planning a visit to the area of Eireau. Easy walking distance to the town, which contains great restaurants and bars. It is quaint, quiet and a place you can get away from life and escape. The sunrise and sunsets are very special from the dock on property

This place truly is an ‘Eauasis’. We had an amazing stay at Willow Barrel Retreat, it’s such a beautiful place! The cabins are all newly renovated, comfortable, very nicely decorated, and you can beat the view of the bay! Jeff & Jenna were great hosts, they are both so friendly and welcoming. Easy to get in contact with and respectful of our privacy, they made sure we had everything we needed and more to enjoy our stay. We loved borrowing the bikes and checking out the quaint village of Erieau, the beach, and trails! Canoes and Kayaks were also available to explore the bay right from their dock. It was also nice to just relax around the property - our porch, picnic tables and chairs along water, and a warm fire on a cool night. We would definitely book again and would love to bring our whole family to enjoy this retreat and everything Erieau has to offer! Thank you so much for our wonderful stay!

Fantastic getaway!! Stayed in a beautiful Eauasis Suite. It’s a short drive to Rondeau Provincial Park for the height of the migratory bird season. The nature trail next to the retreat provided a great location for nature observation and several different warblers were sighted. The fishing opportunities were great and we took advantage of the chance to catch Crappie, Bluegill and perch. The owners are amazing and our stay was top notch. I highly recommend this location!! Will definitely be returning again in the near future!!! The perfect place for fishermen, bird watchers and those just looking to getaway and relax!!!

The on site owners are very accommodating, cabins are clean, beautifully decorated, comfortable beds and super soft sheets! We enjoyed the day on the water in the kayaks and paddleboards and took a great bike ride tour around the cute village ! Ended our day around the fire roasting marshmallows! Great little vacation

We booked the King Suite for a short getaway, and all I can say is WOW! This is a great property -- attention given to each and every detail. Beautifully furnished and so cozy. Loved the fireplace. The modern bathroom was amazing. The onsite owners are very accommodating to whatever you need. We can't wait to book in the summer, to take advantage of the watersports and other activities the village has to offer. Great value for your money. Definitely recommend!
