What a perfect place for a retreat! Such a warm and spacious place in about as beautiful a setting I’ve seen. It also doesn’t hurt that the hosts are as gracious as they come. Jon S.
I celebrated a special birthday with my family at Cascade Hollow. It was the perfect location for us to be together and enjoy the splendid hospitality of our hosts, Dave and Patty. The house is welcoming and spacious. The grounds are immaculate. The breakfast was absolutely delicious, not to mention generous! The area has choices of fun things to do as well as much natural beauty. I highly recommend this B&B. –Ann W.
