“Weekend at Swiggle”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Spent 3 nights over Labor Day weekend in the Swiggle cottage. The accommodations were clean and comfortable. The property was wonderful with lots of opportunities to explore. Nicely located for trips to Warm and Hot Springs, and the WV. Staff were very responsive to our requests and very helpful. We really appreciate the attention to the history of the property and the care given to the natural environment. There was one glitch in that a picnic lunch we had pre-ordered was not well communicated to the deli vendor, so the appropriate lunch was not ready. We ordered another lunch separately and the natural retreats staff took care of the bill for the pre-ordered lunch without question. More is said of the quality of customer service by how errors are dealt with than with the absence of errors.

We are already making plans to return and try one of the other accommodations on the property.

Our family enjoyed a relaxing week at Shepherd's Cottage, owned by Natural Retreats in Hot Springs, VA in July 2013. The house is comfortable and beautifully decorated. The Great Room has a gorgeous fireplace and lots of seating. The kitchen is huge and very well-appointed. Our four kids loved the outdoor swing on the porch and the firepit in the back. The Old Dairy hosts a beautiful pool and game room. The Natural Retreats staff was very accommodating, as were all of the residents of Bath County whom we encountered. We highly recommend the Warm Spirits Spa and the Waterwheel Restaurant at the Grist Mill Inn. Wonderful experience - highly recommended.

We are so impressed with the Trailview Cottage and Natural Retreats. The company is very attentive: the gift basket with fresh bread, wine, and jam along with cheese and milk in the 'fridge was perfect. The beds are very comfortable in every room (we've used them all). The cottage is accessible to dining, hiking, groceries, etc., while remaining quiet and remote. It's a beautiful cottage and a perfect place to relax.

Room Tip: Twin bedroom downstairs, attached to the den which has 2 day beds (roomy enough for our 6' tall...

My family and I stayed at the Herdsman Cottage for a week and we had a wonderful time! The cottage is very comfortable and warm feeling, stocked with anything we could ever need. With 5 adults and two children, the cottage had lots of room and we all enjoyed sitting around the fireplace in the living room at night together.
The amenities at the Old Diary across the street from the cottage, had a lot to offer. Not only was there the Old Dairy Market where you could grab a coffee and something to eat, but there was also a hot tub, sauna, fitness center and a recreation area with flat screen tvs, games and a pool table!! We enjoyed our stay very much and we will definitely be back to stay with Natural Retreats in the future.

My wife and I stayed at the Trailview home in Hot Springs. Morgan, Kris and Tiffany were over-the-top OUTSTANDING... I had arrangements of Flowers, Food Baskets, Champagne etc. setup for my wife and they not only completed all but spent the time to appropriately arrange everything in the house. Super People across the board.. The Conceirge service was impeccable, not only did they make the reservations but followed up with me during the stay to confirm. They even made sure the wood was stacked for the fireplace!!!! Couldn't ask for a better, relaxing, romantic weekend with my spouse of 23 years.... Incredible experience and I certainly will return within 6 months... Their group should be the "Poster Team" for the company. Excellent is not a good enough word of our experience. 10 ++++

Room Tip: Choice a house/cottage.... Privacy..Intimacy and QUIET.......

Our family visited Virginia Hot Springs for Christmas of 2012 and stayed with Natural Retreats. The conceirge service was wonderful and the staff on site absolutely took care of our every need! We had a great time exploring and dining in the historic area and our family found many interesting things to see and do. We highly recommend the Jefferson Pools experience, which is a historic and natural hot springs pool. We thought we might spend 20 minutes or so soaking and ended up enjoying the relaxing float for over an hour!! Thank-you so much Natural Retreats!!

We had a fabulous stay at Meadow Lane Lodge. The cottage is so beautiful and quaint. My husband and I really had a great time. The continental breakfast was over the top. Because we all like to fish, and the property is cut by a beautiful river, we plan to return with extended family for a summer vacation.

Room Tip: Right down the road are a couple of great restaurants and the Jefferson Baths—worth the trip.
