Mother/Daughters Gathering

October 27, 2015

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with our mother & sisters in late September. The Olive Branch was well-equipped, clean & comfortable with many rooms for story-telling & laughter, and also quiet areas for solitude. We enjoyed the flower gardens, hiking trails & great bonfire setting. The Olive Branch and its grounds are well-kept and provide a peaceful, tranquil setting for an utmost relaxing experience. The owners, Jessica & Marla, were most accommodating. Thanks again. We look forward to our next visit!

Owner's reply:

Thank you for your kind review Dorine. We said your job was to fill the Olive Branch with love and laughter while you were there. Thank you for holding up your end of the bargain! :0)

Girls' Getaway

September 18, 2013

Our annual Girls' Getaway was a great time, as usual. The beautiful home we stayed in played a large part in our weekend being so successfu. The home was more spacious than any of us anticipated and it far exceeded our expectations. Other than a neighbor who didn't care for our laughter on the deck (5:30 p.m.), everything was perfect.

Fantastic Place!

August 13, 2013

Olive Branch Retreat provided a perfect place for our Family Reunion for our 50th Anniversary. There was plenty of room for all 17 of us, and the layout provided opportunity for us to all be together or to "do our own thing." It was very clean when we arrived, the kitchen was extremely well equipped, enabling us to prepare most of our meals during the week we were there. Things needed for many recreational activities, both on the water and on land, were provided. The owners were very easy to work with. We highly recommend Olive Branch Retreat.

Successful Family Reunion

June 22, 2011

It was wonderful for our whole family to be under one roof. We were pleasantly surprised at the fully equipped kitchen. We could all be together or split off into small groups and if you wanted some quiet time there is always the little nooks to escape to. The fishing was great. We used one wing of bedrooms for the young families, so when it was nap time, they would not be disturbed by the rest of us. I was thrilled with these accommodations. The weather limited our outdoor time so we were thankful for the large gathering rooms.

Perfect for our Needs

January 25, 2010

We had a weeklong family reunion at this property. It could not have gone better. The location was exactly what we needed, quiet but a short drive to get supplies. Everyone was amazed at how great the grounds were and the number of nice bedrooms. When we wanted to all get together, we could. If we wanted some time to ourselves, plenty of nooks to do that. And the owners could not have been nicer. One very minor problem and it was taken care of immediately. We are looking forward to renting there again.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

This is a unique place to relax, fish, play with your kids, hike, get married or a spiritual retreat. I love the colors of the home and the cozy old world design.
