About this listing
The retreat invites you to get a taste of West Coast living by offering sweeping mountain views from the kitchen window and a tranquil living atmosphere. By incorporating the best of BC and a little European flavour, the retreat offers you to kick up your feet and spend time with people that matter the most. Situated just outside of central Abbotsford and approximately 50 minutes away from Vancouver, the taste of country life can really be experienced.
If you need a place to clear your mind or simply a place to stay while visiting here in Beautiful British Columbia, you have come to the right place. The rental is for the entire retreat. Reliable wifi included.
The retreat consists of 2 separate living rooms. One on the main floor and the 2nd living/entertainment room is upstairs. For the ease of having your family/friends watching a movie upstairs and still have a quiet space downstairs.

I immigrated to Canada 14 years ago from Holland. Since then, many family members have come to visit us where they have enjoyed the retreat. When I do not expect any family to visit, I have it available for anyone who enjoys country life, but not be too far from the city. Family & faith play a big role in my life. I love to travel, discover new destination "gems" and meeting new people. My husband and I run our own greenhouses at a different location. We grow red, orange and yellow sweet bell peppers, spray-free and biological controlled. I love to be outside and work in my (veggie)garden and make my own bouquets when summer comes around.
My motto for life is: Speak life, speak love, speak hope, speak!
