“WOW!”
Reviewed October 27, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

To begin - a couple things to remember. 1) a 4 wheel drive vehicle is mandatory, 2) the nearest restaurant is about 30 minutes away.
Having said that, this place is special. Walking into Peace Lodge elicits "WOW!" or complete silence. Everything needed is supplied, from a fully furnished kitchen, spices and very, very clean surroundings. Once the vehicles are unloaded and stuff stored, something begins to happen. It begins to feel very peaceful, no one is very interested in leaving,
Mornings are an example - get up, grab a cup of coffee, and listen to the creek below. Sometime later we realize it's not so early anymore and we need to get moving if we are going to hike or bike. Returning for happy hour inevitably leads to a discussion on whether we want to leave or eat in. Either way you can't lose. We didn't see any of our neighbors (deer or bear) but it didn't matter. Sitting on the deck looking at a gazillion stars sort of puts things in perspective.
Mark couldn't have been more helpful or easier to work with. He took any anxiety away instantly.

Thank you so much for your kind review. Your comments are very well received and constitute exactly what we set out to accomplish; a unique and memorable experience at Peace Lodge. You are right in that a four wheel drive vehicle is needed and that is why we leave one there for guests to use while on the premises. An all-wheel or front wheel drive will make it in and out as well. The road is smooth and easily traveled but can excite city folk!

You missed the closest restaurant which is 15 minutes at the Olde Mill Golf Course. They have some great food. But if you want to venture out 30 minutes is indeed the norm and part of the meal is in the venturing out taking in all that the mountains have to offer! We find the best restaurant though is the back porch overlooking Big Reed Island Creek. Again, thank you for the kind remarks and we certainly hope you choose to visit us again. Kind Regards, Mark and Nita

“Wonderful Escape”

Our stay was relaxing and restorative. We loved the amazing views, and access to the river. The cabin is tucked in its own undisturbed pocket of nature, with a beautifully open layout of three floors with gorgeous wood detailing. The kitchen's LG appliances and marble counter tops were a dream to use. Everything was user friendly and quiet.

There was no cell phone service and the wifi didn't really work during our stay either. However, with a working land line available, this was a bonus for us, because it allowed us to fully unplug and enjoy ourselves. It made all the difference in being more mindful and present in such an amazing place.

There is so much that Peace Lodge and the nature surrounding it has to offer.
Overall an inspiring property that provides a peaceful getaway and immersion in nature. We found ourselves daydreaming about living in a place like this. Loved it and will definitely return!

Hello,

Thank you for your kind remarks. Our main goal in building Peace Lodge was a retreat that allowed you to truly kick back and take in all that nature has to offer in a pristine setting . And we are happy that you have made it back to us again. The greatest compliment is to have return guests. Please let me know how I can assist. Regards,
Mark and Nita

Thank you Jack. It was a pleasure sharing with you what it took to make this property a reality. A lot of literal blood, sweat, and tears were needed to make Peace Lodge a reality. I look forward in our future exchanges and my best to you and your loved ones.

The road is not very steep. It just takes a day to get used to! We provide a 4x4 pick-up for your travel back and forth to Peace Lodge. No problems!
