Quilting Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our Quilting Club thoroughly enjoyed our time at Eagles's Retreat. We had 19 ladies over the period of a week. There was plenty of room for us to sew, eat, play games and rest. We really enjoyed watching the elk and the birds. We were amazed at the number of different types of birds we saw. Jane was very helpful in every way. She answered every question and request immediately and worked with us in setting up the many sewing stations. I would recommend this home to any one who is looking for a beautiful place to stay. Thank you, Jane for a wonderful time.

Beautiful escape!

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful place to escape and enjoy the cool pines. It was so much fun to watch the elk come and eat and to feed the squirrels. I took my family (children and grandchildren) and we all had a wonderful time. Plenty of rooms, beds and supplies. I love this place! Already thinking of when we can return.

Great location and cabin, however too many rules and regulations

  • 3 of 5

We had a reunion with my husbands 3 brothers and their wives. The cabin size was great and the kitchen was large enough to accommodate all 4 women.

Be aware there are notes taped all over the cabin with do's and don'ts____ take only 2 minute showers, take your shoes off when using the stairs, rules regarding the deck, etc.!!!

Also there are do-dads all over the cabin___beware if you have children! Why these are there in a rental is beyond me.

There is required cleaning to do before you leave----vacuum, dust,mop floors,etc, all I consider heavy cleaning. We have stayed with rent by owners numerous times and have never been required to do all this cleaning! We really felt we could't fully relax the entire time we were there.

Owner's Response: This is our first non 5-star review. Wished you would have called immediately so we could have corrected your complaints. We are always available 24 hours a day for anything our guests may need and we have 3 people readily available in Strawberry to help you. Cleaning - We don't charge a cleaning fee! We only ask that you leave the house in the same condition that you found it. A check list is provided to help save people money! You don’t need to clean anything you haven’t dirtied and you left the house in great condition and received your $400.00 cleaning deposit back. We have mostly large groups of 25 and the signs help the group leaders communicate to the rest of their group so that they don’t have any damage fees. Signs - no fires-no shooting-stay off ground level with elk. For guest safety. Strawberry does not have a public sewer system and we all use septic systems. Showers for 25 people need to be short primarily because septic systems can only accept so much water at a time. We’re thrilled that the size of the cabin met your needs and the groups of 20-25 people that stay with us always tell us they love that the size of the kitchen can accommodate their entire group. Nice things are for your enjoyment. We didn't want it to look like rental. It's our home and we hope you enjoyed. We sincerely want people to enjoy the mountains and the elk. We are easy to talk to and want to do whatever we can so that our guests are satisfied and comfortable. Hope people read the other reviews. Getting this review is very surprising to us as we spoke directly with the other couples in your group and they loved their stay.
