The house and property are gorgeous. location is amazing near all the wineries. We did a afternoon wine tour and came back and had a personal chef prepare a dinner for our group. Thank goodness we did as we were way to tired and a little tipsy to try to cook. We enjoyed the outdoor hot tub and fire pit. One of the girls loved it so much now wants to get married at the property next year! :) We will for sure be coming back! Thank you for the great getaway.
Our family enjoyed the quiet seclusion of the retreat with all of it's great amenities. Shopping and convenience are not far away and the location is easy to get to. Tammy was suburb and very helpful with check in and making our stay enjoyable.
There are plenty of activities and the trails we fun to walk.
Overall this was a positive experience, but I do have some mixed feelings. I would rate 3.5 if I could.
-The house is beautiful, especially the views and outdoors.
-Pet friendly, but you have to pay for it.
-The staff was welcoming.
-Lots of games- really good if you have kids.
-The movie theater was awesome!
-There are MANY signs throughout the house that direct guests to leave any additional money for pets or additional guests in the envelope upon check out. Since booking, I added one person and found we needed to bring our dogs. I fully expected to add the cost of three guests by writing a check and leave it as directed. I was immediately emailed asking how I planned to pay for the extra guest and dogs. They have several cameras so obviously know how many guests are present. They made me feel like I was trying to hide something and demanded payment that day to ensure the money would clear. Someone showed up unannounced to collect the additional money. OK- then why does it say to leave the money upon checkout? I did not like that someone showed up unannounced. We felt as if someone was always watching. They were polite about it though.
-ALL FOUR of us got some kind of rash and painful bumps under our arms the day after we left. We can only assume this is from a dirty hot tub? I do not know another reason for this but we still have the red bumps and they hurt.
-The shower heads were terrible. For the amount charged, you would think they could have a decent shower.
-The pictures make the inside look bigger than it is. Although spacious, I think more than 8-10 people would be cramped.
I probably would not return to this property because the pricing per person/pet seems high. I would, however, recommend this to a small family for a quiet getaway.
This was a long term stay and we also had a superb birthday party at Celebration Retreat. This is our 2nd stay and the place keeps getting better. They have added a beautiful gate entrance which is nice for extra privacy. Inside, so many new amenities. Our family loved everything from the pinball machines to the home theater and the adventurous trails in the back yard. This was the best birthday party with our family and friends and we highly recommend the Celebration Retreat.
We had an incredible experience for our group! The retreat is very clean and the indoor & outdoor amenities are amazing! We loved the home theater and the pinball machines. The adventure trails and firepits were very cool in the back. We held team building discussions by the campfire and then told scary stories while making hot dogs and smores. Anyone will be well entertained from a company retreat/team building event, girlfriends getaway or a small wedding. The wine tour they did was perfect for our group too. Great communication with staff from start to finish. I highly recommend the Celebration Retreat. We will be back.

We booked the celebrations retreat for my sister's bachelorette weekend. Upon arrival the house was pretty dirty. Margarita salt all over the counters, had not been swept, dirty dishes in the dishwasher which caused a distinct odor, base boards and windowsills looked like they had not seen a rag in a very, very long time. The kitchen would be great if there was any counter space to use. Tareq has the counters covered in his own personal spices, liquor, coffee, tea, etc so there is hardly a spot in which to put a cutting board! We couldn't find any dish towels or hand towels to use in the kitchen nor mixing bowls. Thank goodness we brought our own lasagna size baking dishes as those were also not available. The AC on the main level was not working while we were there (two very warm days!!!). We booked a wine tour through them as well and the limo driver showed up 45 minutes late, the AC was also broken in the limo-so uncomfortable for 10 ladies on a hot and humid day, and he had the wrong itinerary, driving us over 30 minutes out of the way while my SIL waited for us at the winery we were told we were going to. We still had a good time and did enjoy the theater room, deck, sound system in the house, etc but we will not book from them again.
