" Kathy and her staff are incredible! We recently celebrated a 40th birthday/girls weekend away and my expectations of the... weekend were over surpassed as I drove up to the farm house! The location was incredible, the hosts (Kathy, Shraga, Krista and all of her staff) were AMAZING - talk about a gourmet cooks! Food was incredible, ambience was perfect and the horse back training, lessons and experience was FANTASTIC (there aren't enough adjectives to describe or do the weekend justice)! To top it all off, we all fell in love with the wonderful Whiz😀 Thanks you Kathy! We'll be back next year for our new Annual Girls Weekend! "

Thanks so much for the lovely retreat. Your meals were divine and Larissa and I enjoyed ourselves so much. It is such a lovely, country environment. The lessons were a treat too. I will be laughing for weeks over the fact that the horse’s name is Couch…..that is just great!!
