“Perfect couple's retreat!”
Reviewed October 23, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

My husband and I spent two and a half weeks at the Writer's Retreat in September, and it was exactly as advertised - a relief since we were driving all the way from Canada! A wonderful retreat, quiet, removed from noise and the city, yet close enough to both Lexington and Buena Vista to go in for activities and groceries. Its proximity to the I-81 as well as other highways was convenient, and the washer and dryer were invaluable!

While we were not able to take full advantage of the rest of the property as we were touring around the Shenandoah Valley so much, we would definitely like to return, perhaps in the spring when flowers are blooming...

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay in Writer's Retreat. It is one of my favorite cozy cabins when I want to get away as well. We look forward to your return and hope next time you will be able to explore more walks and hikes on the property. It is truly a magical place. Perhaps in the spring?
