Briley Pines experience
We had an awesome time at Briley Pines. We had plenty of room for the 15 of us, lots of table service and cookware. The fire pit is great and made s’mores several nights. Owners are very easy to work with and stayed in touch during our stay. Thanks for a spectacular week!
Wonderful Family Feel
Loved our stay here. We had a family get-together - 14 of us in all. The retreat was VERY clean and every room was tastefully decorated. All we had to bring was our food, everything else was there for us to use - dishes, pots and pans, appliances, towels, bedding, etc. (I cannot possibly name everything provided). With 12 bedrooms, we all had plenty of room. In addition, the family room was more than big enough for our whole family to play games, watch television, and just enjoy each other's company. Our family highly recommends the Retreat at Briley Pines for a fun family retreat. We send a big thank you to the owners, Tami and Brian Klaus.
Thank You Becky for your kind words. We love to share our retreat with families like yours who really appreciate it and take such good care of things! Thank you very much for choosing us! Come back anytime!

Amazing for large groups
Rented this house for Snodrift 2019. I did not expect this house to be as big as it was. It’s huge! Plenty of room and driveway space for as many people as you throw at it! Many times during the day where I would lose track of who was where. Also If you love cooking, there’s two ovens and more utensils than I have ever seen before. The owner is also very easy to communicate with and even left us spectator guides for our event.
Donnell Thank you again for choosing The Retreat at Briley Pines for your group for Sno-Drift. I am so happy to hear how much you all enjoyed it here! We love sharing it with groups like yours who appreciate it and take such good care of things! Thank you and hope to see you next year!
The perfect retreat for a large group
We were a group of 19 people and couldn't have found a better place to stay. There are so many bedrooms in this house that you lose count. From outside, the house does not appear to be that big, but it also offers a huge living room and an extra large kitchen. Everything is of above-average quality and well maintained. Each bedroom has a different Michigan theme and is lovingly decorated. Such a friendly and welcoming place!
We are thrilled to hear back from our guests, so happy that you enjoyed The Retreat at Briley Pines as much as we do! Please come again, and Thank you very much for choosing us!
Wonderful long weekend
We stayed at Briley Pines for a reunion of friends - kids, teens, young adults, and parents - 24 of us all together. We were so pleased with how well everything was set up to make a fun and easy stay. We spent happy hours playing board games, ultimate frisbee in the backyard, and afternoons at Clear Lake (about a 15 minute drive away). Also, hosts were quick and helpful with communication. Comments from people in our group:
- Beautiful, well-equipped kitchen with lots of room for the meal prep team. Two dishwashers and table settings for 24 was wonderful.
- The bedrooms are charming! I loved the Michigan themes.
- I enjoyed the big backyard and the comfy couches.
- I love the large open space with different groups of tables/seating so many people can be all together while doing several different activities.
It is always such a pleasure to have a group stay at Briley Pines that really appreciates all we have put into it. We love sharing our cozy home away from home with large families like yours! Thank you so much for choosing The Retreat at Briley Pines. Hope to see you all again someday!
Great place to stay!
This is an amazing retreat. We have a large family and this place was perfect. Lots of space in the kitchen and great room. Seating is comfortable and cozy. Bathroom facilities are great too! The pictures do not do the retreat justice. Our family was all happily surprised by the space and conveniences. Will definitely be coming back again next year!
We were very happy to have your family stay at The Retreat at Briley Pines. We love hearing how much people enjoy this space, we love it here, and love to share it with others. We really look forward to your visit in 2018! Thank you for choosing us!
