A gift basket was left for us with home made muffins and jam as well as juice. The kitchen was well supplied and we took advantage of having a home cooked...

Thank you for your review. We are happy to hear that you and your family had a positive experience during your stay at Storyteller's Retreat. The "Welcome Basket" is something that we decided to do in 2014, to show appreciation to our guests for choosing Storyteller's as part of their vacation....Our guests seem to appreciate it. Again, thank you for...
