I booked my stay here specifically because I wanted peaceful, quiet, isolation. There's nothing notable nearby, perhaps Newburyport but that is a good 30 minutes away by car.
My objective was to find somewhere I could unwind and prepare for a new job. The staff was friendly, especially the desk clerk Katherine, there's a compact but surprisingly well appointed workout room, and to my surprise a basketball/tennis court as well as a pool with jacuzzi.
The suite with king bed was very comfortable, with a full kitchenette (with dishwasher) and separate bedroom. With the free breakfast and food available in the lobby shop one might never need to leave. There were even gas grills available in a picnic area outside.
Speaking of the breakfast, it was...a breakfast. An excellent effort had been put in to accommodating all possible wants, however they served a baked egg patty rather that scrambled eggs, which I would call...sustinence. Everything else, including their own excellent house brand of coffee, was quite tasty.
If I ever need another Retreat in the future I will definitely return here.
