If you come here expecting a hotel, with activities, amenities, and services, you're going to be disappointed. If you come looking for a sanctuary, a place to truly unwind from your normal stresses, you're going to be delighted. Mariah and her late partner built this place up over the years since they bought the property in the 70s. Now she... More

We stayed at the treehouse for our anniversary. It was the most private of all. We opted out of the food package as $48.00 a day per person for yogurt, granola, salad and soup was bit too much for our budget. We brought a cooler with lunch meats and snacks, and went out to dinner at the Overlook resteraunt at... More

My wife and I needed a weekend to just get away and we found it - Rainbow Hearth was the answer. Mariah provided excellent massage therapy in a unique way - to tell you would spoil the experience. The food was excellent. No TV, radio, or phones just quite, relaxing atmosphere. I recommend the Sky Loft room and if you... More

Neat, tidy, good beds and a nice view. Three sinks, but no fridge, microwave or coffee maker or keys to lock your room! Unless you purchase the meal plan, you are pretty much out of luck in the food department for almost $200.00 one would think a continental breakfast would be included. We were told that we could get a... More

Our family is lucky to have stumbled across this fantastic place. A plus for us is that it is animal-friendly. Mariah, the owner, and her daughter run the place and they love animals. Not just dogs, but also cats, rabbits, hamsters, well, you get the idea. The individual "houses" are well-kept, very clean, and stocked full of clean linens, sheets,... More

My husband and my brother and I stayed in the upstairs suite last weekend. It's a lovely and comfortable space. There was a room with a king bed for my husband and me and a nice separate room for my brother. We shared a bath which was fine. The people who work at Rainbow Hearth were friendly and accommodating.

My husband and I have been needing to disconnect and recharge, this place fits the bill. We stayed in the Yurt. It was so cool, a short walk up the hill and you are so secluded. You are surrounded by trees and some are flowering. There is an outdoor deck that surrounds the Yurt with a little bistro set. The... More

My wife and I had been looking for dog friendly places to take a few days off and decided to give Rainbow Hearth a try. We took our two Golden Retrievers and booked the Tree Yurt for three nights. We had a wonderful time and what a relaxing vacation for all of us. Everyone was so nice and Rainbow Hearth... More

Spending my birthday weekend at Rainbow Hearth with my friend and my doggy Bella, was the best thing ever! I've been looking for the perfect place to relax and rejuvenate in a natural setting and have finally found my paradise. Mariah and staff couldn't be more welcoming and accomodating - the perfect hosts! The food was amazing, too - the... More

I have just returned from a week at Rainbow Hearth. I went in stressed, tightly wound and unable to turn off my mind. I departed relaxed and extremely content with my body, my mind, and my sleep. More importantly,I've come home with the tools necessary to prevent some of the challenges that got me in such a screwed up place... More
