"I booked Renewal Retreat for a one week stay and gave it to my family as their Christmas gift! We had a wonderful time and will always cherish the memories! Days were spent swimming in the pond, kayaking and playing volleyball and basketball! Evenings were spent around the campfire and/or soaking in the hot tub while enjoying our own private show of the solar system.
When you walk into the cabin, it truly feels like someone has wrapped their arms around you!
With 3 families enjoying the week, we never felt crowded because of the spacious layout!
We love it here and even though it is only 10 minutes from home, we feel like we've had a true holiday! We love it so much in fact that we are going back this coming summer and cannot wait!
Thanks for sharing your special place!"
"Peaceful, Sacred Time"
Renewal Retreat is an oasis. A peaceful escape from the business of life. The cabin is surrounded by the beauty of nature and allows the opportunity to slow down and contemplate as you wander through the woods, walk by the river or sit by the pond. We took advantage of the in-house spa services offered. It was so awesome to be pampered without being rushed and without having to leave the space. In fact we didn't leave all weekend. We watched movies, walked, talked, cooked up great feasts and just enjoyed the opportunity to relax and come together. Renewal Retreat is an annual winter event for my sisters and our girls. It is a sacred time that we all look forward to immensely. It's like a little bit of heaven!

"Blissfully Peaceful Quilting"
"A blissfully peaceful weekend relaxing with great friends. Renewal Retreat is our choice for our semi-annual quilting retreat. It suits our needs perfectly. The enormous first floor living room/kitchen accommodates a large group whether enjoying a comfortable sofa hand-sewing or sitting at the machine. Everyone gets to sleep in their own bed and we bring enough quilting supplies that not having to bring linens is a big plus. A time out in the outdoor hot tub is also an adventure. Whether indoors or out the Renewal Retreat is a wonderful getaway with great friends."
"A wonderful, relaxing, and special place for renewal!
Renewal Retreat is our annual "Spa Weekend" gathering since our 40th Birthdays! All 8 women look forward to this retreat from year to year because it is very relaxing and a time of laughter and friendship. The Spa treatments are a special bonus and a gift to ourselves. The kitchen is well equipped for preparing meals and the rest of the house is very welcoming and comfortable. We enjoy the facilities - especially the hot tub and the location in the quiet setting of nature and the river."

"We have rented Renewal Retreat for the past several Thanksgivings and have never failed to be amazed at the experience. The property is large, well maintained and every amenity is thought of. There is lots of space for hiking and many places for a quiet moment of reflection. The lodge itself is very comfortable, clean and welcoming with all of the comforts of home. We have been very blessed that Theresa has allowed us the privilege of renting the Retreat and hope to continue coming for many year

"Peace, Quiet, Clean with lots of room."
"We are a group of 8 who have traveled together for years. We started renting a cottage for a summer week a Renewal Retreat is the first place we are returning...clean, tidy, fully stocked kitchen with dish washer, comfortable beds and more than enough room & seating for a very large group. The extra long dining room table and chairs is a bonus for our group as we play lots of indoor games and even though the weather was not the best the week we were there, it did not matter in the least.
Lots of activities swimming, fishing, out door games and a fire pit. The hot tub was well used...Clean, clean, clean. We had a great time and recommend Renewal Retreat for a very private holiday. No neighbours to worry about and abundant natural beauty. We have booked again for next year and are looking forward to another great holiday."
