The retreat was beautiful and had everything we needed. It was the perfect spot to spend my birthday weekend. Quiet, relaxing and peaceful. The breakfast was delicious!! Thank you for accommodating us on such short notice. We will definitely keep your place in mind the next time we need a weekend getaway...or longer. Thank you again.

Fall Weekend Trip

We were greeted by Christine at their wonderful residence! It was very easy to get to and they were great at communicating with us. What a nice, cozy and relaxing place! We had a great time and wonderful views of the mountains from the porch. The cozy cabin was clean and we had everything we needed and more. We were very close to town and excited for all the hiking to many waterfalls around the area. Thank you for the hospitality and the great picture! We will definitely be back!

Upon arrival, it's like coming home. It has a lived in feel, as if you just walked into he home of a friend or family.
Everything is at your disposal and then some. The owners are constantly there to help with any needs and their goal is to make you feel welcome.
I highly recommend the Retreat.

My new "home away from home"!

My new "home away from home"!
  • 5 of 5
Absolutely incredible!

That statement sums up my time that I spent at "The Retreat". Chris and Jim are two of the loveliest people to ever breathe air. They both went out of their way to ensure that I not only had a clean, comfortable, well-decorated "home" to stay in, but to also see that I was treated like family. I wanted for absolutely nothing while I was there; I had a cozy room...comfortable linens...a relaxing living room...and even a delicious egg and vegetable breakfast casserole.

The pontoon ride was a blast! We all took pictures, and Jim and Chris gave some fantastic background stories of the general area.

As saddened as I was to head back to New Jersey, I am absolutely certain that I will be back again.

Chris...Jim....thank you - from the bottom of my heart - for one of the best vacation experiences I've ever had.

Awesome weekend!!!!! That is the only words to describe the Prime Resort.We spent our 39th anniversary weekend in this cozy retreat. The apartment was neat, clean, attractively decorated, and very welcoming.Everything wanted or needed was supplied. We were greeted by the owner, who welcomed us as a family member. She even remembered and noted that this was a special weekend for us. All needs were met and the mountain views were delightful. The weekend ended with a special boat ride and tour of Glenville Lake. This event was greatly enjoyed. The lake was beautiful, but the waterfalls were magnificent. Are we going back? You betcha!!!!!!!

Owner's Response: Unbelievable guests as Pam and Bill who arrived with thankful gifts (a 'bribe' they called it ) of freshly picked crates of the most delicious peaches we ever had (from SC of all places) ! Folks like this make our efforts feel 'all worth it' and we will continue to view our special guests as you 'like family' as you've now become ! Yes, 'bribery works' but YOU are welcome back ANYTIME (peaches or no peaches) ! Warmly, C& J

Wonderful stay

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful stay at The Retreat! We were looking for an affordable place to rent in the Cashiers area so we could spend our days outside and have a nice place to relax and cook at in the evenings. The location is central to all the area has to offer in terms of restaurants, waterfalls and scenic hikes. I would recommend The Retreat to anyone looking for a cozy place with atmosphere and plenty surrounding activities! Christine is very accommodating and made us feel very welcome!

Wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I loved our week long stay here. The property was beautiful, the apartment was well furnished with everything you could possibly need (kitchen stuff, bed linens and bathroom towels, etc.)and the location was perfect. The hot tub was wonderful after long days of hiking nearby areas and the view from the balcony offered sightings of hummingbirds feeding, wild rabbits and a pasture across the way with horses, cows and chickens. Jim and Christine's dog Buddy was a welcome sight each morning and Christine was good at making sure we had everything we needed and helpful with stuff to do around the area. I had completely forgotten about the game room area or my husband and I would have played endless rounds of air hockey. I am very much hoping we can come back in the fall to see the leaves changing colors. I can't recommend this property enough. If you want more than the 'hotel experience' and out of the hustle and bustle of town (even one as small as Cashiers)consider staying here. You can't beat the price, the view, the wonderful owners, the area. You will NOT be disappointed.

Owner's Response: As vacation rental property owners, one can only hope to satisfy guests in every way since their desires and requests vary greatly. We are overjoyed when appreciative guests, as Dawn and Jeff, immensely enjoy their Retreat with a yearning desire to return. We couldn't ask for better guests feeling such contentment, savoring their vacation time in our valley location surrounded by short-range mountain views, cool mornings, and refreshing breezes as they relaxed on their balcony cuddling together with content appreciation. The site of their satisfaction here almost 'exceeds the views.'
We'll continue to do our utmost to assure a desired return stay this way and warmly welcome you back knowing 'you will always have a welcoming place here with us'.
Appreciative we are for the 'best of guests'! Come back soon! ~ Christine & Jim
