"We just returned from a 4 night stay at Journey's Retreat. It was more beautiful than imagined, with every amenity provided. From a well-stocked, gourmet kitchen, to beautifully designed living quarters, every detail in this home has been thoughtfully executed to provide guests with all the comforts of home and more.
The mountain views were amazing and we loved sitting on the balcony each morning and watching the days come to life. In the evenings, we cozied up to the fireplace with members of our family and spent time catching up on times past. We enjoyed every moment of our wonderful, memorable stay and can't wait for the opportunity to come back.
If you visit Journey's Retreat, you will not be disappointed! A short drive to the Blue Ridge Parkway, we loved the fall leaves, picturesque mountains, valleys and especially, Maybry Mills. Be sure and visit the Dutch Oven in Hillsville for the best reuben, homemade breads, doughnuts and muffins, made by Dutch Amish owners, fresh each day.
Thank you to owner, Dr. Jack, and caretaker, Jerry, for making our stay perfect in every way."

"What an absolutely beautiful place to stay! The view, of course, was awesome. We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary on the 4th and got to see fireworks from all the neighboring communities right from the decks. We had some rain off and on but in the midst of those we got to see a double rainbow. It was so relaxing and peaceful so we stayed most of our time at the cabin but did get to Mt. Airy and Pilot Mountain. This is one anniversary we will never forget! Anyone who stays here will not be disappointed. All the conveniences of home and better. Hope to make it back next year. The owners did everything to make this vacation perfect."

"A great place to unwind and relax. It was very cozy and perfect. I was impressed with a temperature of 3 degrees and the wind blowing up to 40 MPH that we did not feel a single draft in this well maintained cabin. An excellent place to stay with an excellent hostess."
