Rondaxe Retreat - Great Trip

  • 5 of 5

Once again a fantastic vacation. This home away from home is perfect for our group of snowmobilers! We stay the week and after a long day of riding it's great to come home to a comfortable place that is always warm, clean and perfect amount of space!

The sled trail is right down the road along with a nice road and walking trail when we have the energy to stretch our legs. We love this place with the bonus of a long driveway for us all to park! Thank you for another great memory.

HCCers Love the Rondaxe Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We are a pretty large group of family snowmobilers. Last year was our first year at Rondaxe Retreat and we can't wait for this year's trips. The place was large enough for all of us. THe retreat is tucked back in the woods with lots of lights to feel safe. All was clean and in great condition - well cared for. The garage was fantastic for our sleds and the house was warm after a long day of riding. We've been riding for years and Rondaxe Retreat will be our forever new Winter vacation spot! Home away from Home. Thank you !

Amazing Family vacation!!

  • 4 of 5

We just got back from our annual vacation at the Rondaxe Retreat. Our 323rd year in a row!! We enjoy it so much because it is large enough to accommodate our growing family! Plus it is completely handicapped accessible for our older guests.

We love the large deck and the campfires around the firepit!!

The improvments this year were perfect.

We are looking forward to next year!!

With all of our thanks,

Mary Lou Crewe

Family trip

  • 5 of 5

Love the house! We drove up from Pennsylvania and we were very tired when we arrived at the house. Everything we needed to just go lie down and fall asleep, relax on the sofa, watch a little TV and make a cup of coffee was readily available and clean like brand-new. We felt so comfortable and welcome. The deck and the pit outside were our favorites. Since there were two families we all had enough space and privacy in the house because it was big and spacious, and when we wanted to spend time together there was ample space to do so. Since the house is handicap accessible on the main floor our friend was able to maneuver easily and enjoy our stay. We are reserving the house again for the same time next year.
