“Beautiful retreat”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

Me and my husband shared our vows at this bed and breakfast and all I can say is beautiful! The location was beautiful the ceremony was beautiful and David and Sharon are wonderful people. Feels like home away from home there they know how to make someone feel welcome. I can't wait to visit again soon! If you need some time to get back to what started your love this is the perfect spot to reflect on your romance.

We loved being a part of your Candlelit Exclusive wedding. What a romantic weekend it was filled with butterflies, your love for each other and of course... organic veggies and herbs grown in our gardens. We look forward to your next visit. We'll keep the flowers growing for ya.

My Husband and I shared our 2nd anniversary just recently, and we are so glad we found this wonderful place to spend it at! It was so serene and peaceful, just what we needed for the weekend. The location could not be better. The owners, David and Sharon, are such sweet people and made everything very comfortable. We even got to have a little front porch concert before we left :) I highly recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a little rest and relaxation!

We can still see you both heading out for your hike along the walking trails. Thank you for sharing some of your music on the porch with us too.

We were married at Butterfly Hollow years ago when Sharon & David were getting started. We decided to return a few days ago. Butterfly Hollow is so beautiful! The Flowers and plants are amazing and they've made a wonderful nature trail, They are wonderful hosts and couldn't be more gracious. Sharon is a gourmet cook and her breakfasts were delicious. David is a great guy to talk to and he serenaded us with country tunes that he had written himself! Both of them have real talent. I can't imagine a better place to become closer as a couple or to renew your vows. We will be back! Also, if you enjoy bird watching, I counted 20 different species of birds while sitting on their porch.

Thank you for such a glowing review and for the personal comments about your hosts. We feel privileged to have been a part of your wedding some 5+ years ago but even more honored that you have returned for an anniversary. Since your visit we have begun documenting all the birds that we have identified in our 85 acre retreat and have 52 so far. Thank you for reminding us how amazing these feathered friends are.

My fiance and I chose to elope to Butterfly Hollow. It was a wonderful experience and the hollow is a paradise! The house is incredibly clean, smells WONDERFUL, and David and Sharon are an amazing couple! They did a wonderful job planning all the details of our special day and we hope to return soon to spend more time there! The food was fabulous and the surroundings are breathtaking.

Thank you for the wonderful compliments. We especially love how you made note of the "smells". The combination of the earthy-wood scents from all the Tulip Poplar inside, along with fresh flowers in every room, the occasional waft of Sage and Lavender from our home grown incense and the lingering essence of breakfast ..... ahhh the perfect blend.

We were married in April 2013, and being my first wedding, I was very nervous. We live in Michigan, so we had to go over our wedding details by e-mail and phone calls. The hosts, Sharon and David, answered all of my questions. They even answered questions I never thought to ask! Upon our arrival, the property was a picture right out of a magazine. A butterfly followed us up the road leading to the house. The smells and sounds took us over. The living quarters were clean, private, and five star. My family and friends that joined us were at a loss for words.

Butterfly Hollow will forever be in our hearts. If you have stumbled upon this place, you are one of the lucky ones.

My husband and I were married at Butterfly Hollow in March 2013. Although our wedding took place in the middle of a thunderstorm, David and Sharon made our day absolutely perfect! Saying our vows inside of their home with family and friends was cozy and very romantic. We have made the promise to each other to stay at the hollow every year for our anniversary!

It usually never rains on a wedding day..... but on this spring day, how special it truly was. The restored 1899 farmhouse was filled candles glowing in mason jars hanging from the rafters, flowers in every corner and a flicker in the fireplace to warm the day. What made it so special though was the love radiating between this awesome couple, the music he played for her on his guitar and the looks of love and admiration that was shared between all their guests. The perfect ending though was when the clouds cleared and we still were able to slip out into the gardens for a few wedding day pictures.

With Love-
