Comments from a guest (June 2024): Charming accommodations in a restored turn of the century house. Our experience was lovely! From the warm, friendly service to the excellent on site dining, I would highly recommend The Reserve Retreat to anyone looking for a getaway with lots of small town character. You can get all of your meals on site. There's an excellent cafe for daytime meals and the bistro is open for elegant dining. Nice selection of beer and wine available.
