“This has been a life-changing weekend for me! What an incredible experience! I was so blessed by the massage I was given; the dining staff who made incredible meals, and everyone was so gracious, the beautiful grounds … all of it. Thank you, thank you, thank you for having this wonderful place for me to come to. I will come back … often. I (didn’t) want to leave the peace and serenity I am feeling as a result of being here. When I arrived on Friday I was so stressed out and anxious. Bless you for what you have created here.”

“I received your invitation to the three-day class in January. Oh how I wish, I wish I could attend. I LOVED the class my friend and I attended for acrylics. I liked the teacher very much. Though acrylics were new to me, I enjoyed it, and look forward to taking a watercolor class at Cedar Valley. I hope the same teacher might instruct, but judging by the high quality of teacher for the acrylic class, I’m sure whoever you have will be as exceptional. I thought the lunch provided was outstanding. The whole day was so pleasant. Even the overnight aspect of the upcoming class is really appealing to me. Please keep me on your mailing list. I’m sure I’ll be back to Cedar Valley in the near future.”

“I just want to take this time to let you know how much I enjoyed the Women’s Retreat. At this time in my life, it was a catalyst to opening a path for me to go and explore further. Everyone was so warm and giving. Your thoughtfulness, insight and genuine loving Spirit was evident all weekend.”
Thank you for being you and sharing with us.

“The retreat gave me time to focus on myself in a very relaxed setting. The serenity I felt was awesome - the first time I felt that way in my life.”
“Cedar Valley is a tremendous blessing in my life. It offers 100 gorgeous Kettle Moraine acres with woods, pond, wildlife – a comfortable, lovely décor, and a welcoming and hospitable staff. I’m so grateful for Cedar Valley. It gives me beauty and space and peace of heart”

“I’ve hosted a yoga retreat here at Cedar Valley for three years and it just keeps getting better. The coziness of the accommodations makes for a special gathering of fun and friendship!
The food is excellent and heartily enjoyed by all; that is a difficult thing to do with thirty women. Thanks for the delicious meals!
The hiking trails are well maintained with breathtaking views. Love walking the trails.
Thanks Cedar Valley!”

“Your rates are reasonable enough that we had family come to our reunion that never did in the past. The lodge and grounds were so spacious that the kids (and parents!) could relax and enjoy themselves. Your staff treated us like royalty. The family-style meals were excellent!”
“The retreat had a profound impact on my life. I do not perceive God to just be in heaven but all around us. I truly felt close to him.”
