I hosted my sister's bachelorette party at the Celebration Retreat. We had an amazing time! The house and grounds were well kept. We comfortably slept 14 people. Staff was there to greet us when we arrived. They assisted us in setting up a wine tour and provided transportation. We required a last-minute need for another driver, and this issue was handled professionally, painlessly, and promptly. I highly recommend this venue!
We hosted a relaxed bachelor party at the house and it was perfect. The house is secluded but within reach of grocery stores etc. The outdoor space is great during the summer, especially the magnificent grill and hot tub. The downstairs is also fun for movies, playing some cards, or returning to pinball after many years. The owners are very responsive to guide you before you arrive, and there is someone on call during the stay in case we had questions. Overall, I would recommend it
We had a great weekend at Celebration Retreat, the place has enough to do that you really don't need to leave. There pinball machines and the theater room was a highlight. The group of guys really enjoyed throwing a football around and playing lawn games. Thanks for a great weekend.
It's a really great and nice house. Especially the movie theater, we all love it!
There were both positive and negative things.
The negative – a door to the house did not lock (made us feel a little unsafe). The front door keypad was malfunctioning so we frantically called a number to get into the house. Also there was only one hand soap in the entire house.
The good – the movie theater is amazing (confusing to start since the owner was on vacation we had to go off the guide). The Jacuzzi is nice. The backyard is pretty. And the scenery is beautiful.
A very fun stay. I stayed on my way to pick up polo ponies from Virginia. I was also surprised that the host is a polo player as well. I arrived late and took advantage of a fully stocked kitchen, as well as wine in the cooler. I will definitely stay again if I come back to the area.
Tareq was a wonderful host! He provided prompt responses when I first inquired about the house and was always happy to answer any questions. He called me the day before we arrived to make sure we were all set for our stay (and he even remembered my brother and I were going to celebrate our birthday there and wished us a happy birthday!)
The house was perfect! It was exactly as described in the listing and shown in the pictures. It was ideal for our group of 14 people. We very much enjoyed all the amenities on site. In the nearby area, a group of us went hiking one day and another group went horseback riding. Then we all went rafting on our last day (highly recommend this).
I would love to stay at the Celebration Retreat again and would definitely recommend it to anyone!
