“Amazing Retreat”
Reviewed 27 July 2013

As a wedding gift, our friends booked a weekend for us at Butterfly Hollow. After checking out the B&B online, we couldn't wait to get there. However nothing we saw online prepared us for the beauty and splendor we experienced. David and Sharon are amazing, soulful people who greeted us in the driveway when we arrived, and continued to act as perfect hosts the next few days. Our two breakfasts were amazing, which included food grown on the property and brought in from neighbors.

Our room was gorgeous and spacious, and it included a nice welcome basket (cheese, crackers, sparkling apple juice) and a little refrigerator, which we used to store our own snacks. During the day, we laid on the hammocks that were scattered across the property. I'd like to say we read and relaxed, but we were overwhelmed by all the nature around us. The hummingbirds, butterflies, and deer captured our attention.

We were even lucky enough to share a small wedding with our B&B mates.

When we left, we felt as if we'd made 4 new friends.

If you are looking for a peaceful, transformative experience, we highly recommend a weekend away at Butterfly Hollow.

We loved sharing the hollow with you both and enjoyed sharing the fun conversations about RV living. Your smiles are forever engrained. Come back and visit again soon.

We have been staying here almost since the beginning. The path has led us from customers to dear friends, and that we value greatly. The words others have left are on target. If you haven't been here, you owe it to yourself to do so. Life is short. There was only one thing missing this time. We'll see you Daisy on the Rainbow bridge when we cross over.

Butterfly Hollow is in its 14th season and how honored we feel knowing that in the 12 years you've been coming here all the way from NY... you still find respite, peace, solitude and consider this your home away from home. We'll see you again soon!

Me and my husband shared our vows at this bed and breakfast and all I can say is beautiful! The location was beautiful the ceremony was beautiful and David and Sharon are wonderful people. Feels like home away from home there they know how to make someone feel welcome. I can't wait to visit again soon! If you need some time to get back to what started your love this is the perfect spot to reflect on your romance.

We loved being a part of your Candlelit Exclusive wedding. What a romantic weekend it was filled with butterflies, your love for each other and of course... organic veggies and herbs grown in our gardens. We look forward to your next visit. We'll keep the flowers growing for ya.

My Husband and I shared our 2nd anniversary just recently, and we are so glad we found this wonderful place to spend it at! It was so serene and peaceful, just what we needed for the weekend. The location could not be better. The owners, David and Sharon, are such sweet people and made everything very comfortable. We even got to have a little front porch concert before we left :) I highly recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a little rest and relaxation!

We were married at Butterfly Hollow years ago when Sharon & David were getting started. We decided to return a few days ago. Butterfly Hollow is so beautiful! The Flowers and plants are amazing and they've made a wonderful nature trail, They are wonderful hosts and couldn't be more gracious. Sharon is a gourmet cook and her breakfasts were delicious. David is a great guy to talk to and he serenaded us with country tunes that he had written himself! Both of them have real talent. I can't imagine a better place to become closer as a couple or to renew your vows. We will be back! Also, if you enjoy bird watching, I counted 20 different species of birds while sitting on their porch.

Thank you for such a glowing review and for the personal comments about your hosts. We feel privileged to have been a part of your wedding some 5+ years ago but even more honored that you have returned for an anniversary. Since your visit we have begun documenting all the birds that we have identified in our 85 acre retreat and have 52 so far. Thank you for reminding us how amazing these feathered friends are.

My fiance and I chose to elope to Butterfly Hollow. It was a wonderful experience and the hollow is a paradise! The house is incredibly clean, smells WONDERFUL, and David and Sharon are an amazing couple! They did a wonderful job planning all the details of our special day and we hope to return soon to spend more time there! The food was fabulous and the surroundings are breathtaking.

Thank you for the wonderful compliments. We especially love how you made note of the "smells". The combination of the earthy-wood scents from all the Tulip Poplar inside, along with fresh flowers in every room, the occasional waft of Sage and Lavender from our home grown incense and the lingering essence of breakfast ..... ahhh the perfect blend.
