“Idyllic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2011

My now husband and I married at Butterfly Hollow on 10 September.
As per a previous reviewer, we too found this site through a google search, and as there was just the two of us travelling, decided it would make a perfect venue for our elopment.
From the moment you drive towards the house, you are exported into a valley of paradise!
The surroundings almost make you want to rub your eyes and pinch yourself as they are so unbelievable.
Our hosts, Sharon and David could not have been more welcoming. Calming our pre-wedding nerves and making our day oh so special.
This is most definately a place where you will want to return again and again.
Our wedding photographs were spectacular, reflecting the day wonderfully.
I cannot say enough about our visit to Butterfly Hollow - we leave a little of ourselves behind, beckoning us to return.

We married in the gardens of Butterfly Hollow on July 10th surrounded by friends and family. It was an incredibly HOT DAY! But Sharon and David Rasmussen were incredible guests. They went out of thier way to help us make it through the heat and excitement. We highly recommend planning your wedding there. The pictures are magnificent!!

Do yourselves all a favor and please stay here instead of so tasteless hotel. You will feel a closeness that you just can't find at a holiday inn. It is an amazing place that is completely worth the price. They made our wedding day so special ad we will certainly be back!

My wife and I spent another weekend at Butterfly Hollow which makes it the 5th year we've been going. For us there's not many places that are as relaxing and rejuvenating as our weekend there. The hosts Dave and Sharon are awesome people that we could spend hours talking to. I would prescribe a trip to the Hollow to any and all.

my husband and i visited butterfly hollow with friends of ours that had visited before and told us numerous times that we needed to visit. from the very first welcome, david and sharon were the most gracious hosts we've ever experienced! their home is cozy and welcoming, and our bedroom was romantic and charming. both of our breakfasts were amazing, and as self-proclaimed foodies, we agreed with david and sharon that they need to publish their own cookbook! the landscape of butterfly hollow is incredible...there are gardens of vegetables and flowers to walk through (butterflies of all kinds, everywhere!!), hammocks all over the place and a wrap around porch to just die for. we loved the hammock chairs so much, we brought one home! my husband and i were constantly smiling, with a glass of wine in hand, just observing the splendor around us, which magnified the beauty between the two of us. if you find yourself struggling to relax...stay at butterfly hollow for a weekend. it will be a getaway you won't soon forget, and you'll find yourself planning your next visit even before you leave!

After dealing with the stress of planning a wedding, my now husband and I decided to elope. I found this B&B through a Google search & fell in love with it from the pictures (which I must add do not do the place justice!). It is truly an enchanting place.
The owners are wonderfully kind and genuine people. They were patient, and VERY helpful. Words cannot describe how wonderful David & Sharon made our wedding day. The only thing I wish, I would have done differently, is stayed at the B&B.

Room Tip: Charming and clean

My husband and I had been in desperate need of a restful getaway. After having a perfect wedding at Butterfly Hollow, we decided to go for another visit choosing their "All Inclusive Retreat." For 3 days we were in our little piece of heaven enjoying all the beautiful flower gardens, butterflies and wildlife that make the hollow such an enchanting place. There is nothing like feeling at home when you are away from home. :)

One of the most delightful parts of the getaway was the meals that Sharon and David lovingly prepared with fresh goodies picked from their organically grown garden. The meals were amazing and we haven't enjoyed meals like that in a LONG time.

As we drove out of the hollow we were escorted by butterflies and were more refreshed than ever. Being in the hollow was exactly what we needed to renew and refresh our tired and worn out souls. Thank you for sharing your home and wonderful meals with us. We really look forward to visiting Butterfly Hollow again soon!! :)

Room Tip: Both of the rooms at Butterfly Hollow are wonderful! :)
