I sent an email to the email address posted on your website, back in October, inquiring about winter gift certificates, but I didn't receive a reply. Has there been an updated email that has not been posted to your website? Thanks in advance.
no update ,sorry but I do not know about winter gift certificates you will have to notify Big Hill Retreat directly. Hope you get to stay there because it's truly a gem.
