Words can't express how amazing this place is. Tucked away off the main road makes this place both quiet and secluded as well as in great proximity to local towns. The house itself needs to be seen to properly feel the coziness and warm atmosphere. Patricia is an excellent host who caters to every need - we went for my...

I was fortunate to find Patricia and her lovely B&B, A Mountain View Retreat, during our recent trip while moving my daughter into college. She runs a tight ship, but there is not a detail she's not thought of. From the stunning grounds, to the peaceful sitting areas, you can't help but want to stay. She immediately welcomes you into...

Staying at this hide away retreat enhanced our visit to Omega. The positive energy that our hostess and her art work evoked was truly memorable. If you wish to take a quiet walk, there are many paths to travel. A labyrinth, hammocks, potted plants, sculptures and a friendly toad or two made our outdoor afternoons and evenings absolutely delightful We...

Hi B... Thank you for the lovely recommendation. I enjoyed you two as much as you enjoyed Mountain View and am looking forward to the return visit. I loved showing you the "Goddess Walk, the Meditation Bench, Quan Yin's Garden, the Prayer Pavilion" as well as the small labyrinth. All sorts of fun spots to discover on twenty acres. Thanks...

Imagine the best of someone's life pulled together under one roof to share with others, the warm feelings you have when you are home sitting in front of a warm fire and throw in a fine and helpful hostess...it is heaven.
