Wonderful place for a large group to congregate, we had lots of fun memories playing the games in the garage and gazing at the amazing Elk that arrived every day.

The squirrels were very entertaining also.

Highly recommend for families or close friends gathering anytime of the year.

We will be back!

Quilting Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our Quilting Club thoroughly enjoyed our time at Eagles's Retreat. We had 19 ladies over the period of a week. There was plenty of room for us to sew, eat, play games and rest. We really enjoyed watching the elk and the birds. We were amazed at the number of different types of birds we saw. Jane was very helpful in every way. She answered every question and request immediately and worked with us in setting up the many sewing stations. I would recommend this home to any one who is looking for a beautiful place to stay. Thank you, Jane for a wonderful time.
