Ellen was a fantastic host and Sacred Grove Retreat was a magical place!
Within minutes, Ellen had responded to our reservation request and the next day we were enjoying the warmth of the cozy Thoreau Cabin! Check-in was easy and the accommodations exceeded my expectations! We also loved that we could bring our pup, Porter. Lots of room for him to run and play. Wish we could have stayed longer, but we’re absolutely looking forward to coming back very soon. Hoping to join the drum circle next time! Thank you Ellen!
