Misty Mountain Retreat
Ranked #1 of 1 Mount Samson B&B and Inns
Reviewed 25 September 2013

Lori, Hugh and Corina, warm, accommodating, accepting, generous. In addition to the offerings promised, they gave us more than we could have asked for, a most relaxing and revitalising two days. It's hard to imagine more than a few days - one would be too addicted to spa, sauna, the Ka Huna massages and the delightful location and ambience. We'll be back!

I love coming to Misty Mountain. This is a true B&B in every sense - their house is your house for the stay. Warm, open and caring. It is a home away from home. What people may not know are the extras you can partake in. If you love massage you will love Lori, Hugh and Corina's Ka Huna massages - they are the best. I regularly come back once a month for a massage, even when I am not staying in the B&B. Plus I have had mud wraps, luxuriated in the spa and sweated in the sauna. Sitting on the back down having breakfast, reading through the travel brochures and looking to wonderful view of the mountains is the best before having to make the trek back to my normal life!

Received a very warm welcome from Lori & Hugh. Such great hosts and made you feel like old friends you haven't seen in years.
The views were amazing and the couples Kahuna massage they both gave my husband and I were the best massages we have ever had!!
Will definitely be going back again.

I love this place and the people running it. I consider it home away from home. Lori and Hugh are warm and caring hosts and they think about the little extras. The veiw from the back verandah is stunning and there is nothing better than laying back in the extremely comfortable bed and watching the sunrise through the bedroom window. I live in paradise but get a better sleep when I'm here!!! Thank you Lori and Hugh.......

Thank you Lori and Hugh for the most wonderful 4 days. Your warmth and hospitality were really special.

The kahuna massage was incredible and the ceiling in the meditation room has to be experienced to be believed.

I enjoyed sauna, spa, massage, beautiful breakfast overlooking the glorious mountain range and much needed peace and quiet.

I would reccomend " Misty Mountain retreat" to anyone and look forward to returning soon.

Maybe I expected to much.
I booked a two bedroom apartment, but when I got there Lori and Hugh had stored someones furniture in the other bedroom (assuming because there was two of us we would share a bed)
Yes there is a balcony, but it over looks the septic which smells on hot days
. The work man started work on the Resorts new shed at 7.30, am., could they have waited a bit later, we were paying guests.
It was not the peaceful retreat we had hoped for.

Maree P, The late response to this review is due to only just joining TripAdvisor. I regret that we did not meet your expectations. I was away from the property at this time and I was not advise from my staff that there were any concerns regarding your accommodation. Rest assured something would have been done at the time had you mentioned it. Thank you for your time in giving a review

great people running it, beautiful spot, very comfy beds, good brekky BUT they should have said that there was a shared common area and that should be read as you will have to share a bathroom, shower sinks and mirrors, and that the tea station in rest of house, rest of house able to see into shared area. no locks on bedroom door either. oh and very thin walls (can hear all conversations wherever the are in the house and noise sharing floor. also they swiched our room. but really its the misinformation and the total lack of privacy that made me fell very let down by the place.

Thank you for your time in writing a review. The late response is due to the fact I have just joined TripAdvisor and was unaware we had any reviews. I regret that we did not meet your expectations in pricing. As a result of concerns we have changed our doors to include privacy locks for guest comfort. regards
