We (4 couples) spent a Saturday evening and night here. After a great meal at the Wild Caraway Restaurant, we returned to the Retreat. After gathering the requisite libations we went to the beach which is in front of the cottages. Here we found the reason for the name of the Retreat... tons of driftwood. We immediately gathered up what we needed and soon had a bonfire roaring in the spot where others had previously done the same. We spent about 3 hours sitting on the huge logs that surrounded the fire and enjoyed the water, the sky with its beautiful moon and stars which peeked through the clouds and our friends.
The cabins were very clean, well appointed and fully equipped. The beds (1 queen and two twins) were extremely comfortable. The gas fireplaces were a nice touch. Our cottage had the bedrooms on the main floor and the living area on the second floor. This gives you a terrific view over the water and I recommend that you ask for this set-up as our friends' cottage was the traditional living-room down and bedrooms up and their view was hindered by the dyke in front of their cottage.
We really enjoyed our stay and highly recommend Driftwood Park Retreat!
