  • The wedding of our dreams at The Olive Branch Retreat

    "My Olive Branch guest book entry as we were headed out the door following our wedding weekend: "I'll try not to cry as I write this... We held our wedding here yesterday and it could not have been more amazing! The weather was perfect! We truly fell in love with The Olive Branch and would love to make it an anniversary tradition to stay here. Thank you for helping us make our wedding weekend so wonderful!" Our family cabin is in Grey Eagle and has been for the last 90 years. We had planned on getting married there but we needed a suitable place for our guests to stay. After a little google search I came across The Olive Branch Retreat. I couldn't believe this place was in the same town as our cabin and yet I had never heard about it! I set up a tour and instantly fell in love with it. Even though it's right on a country road, there's very minimal traffic and it somehow still feels like you're tucked away from all humanity. To make a long story short, we decided to have the entire wedding at The Olive Branch Retreat instead of just using it for our guests! We had 70 guests and made an entire weekend out of it! Grooms BBQ dinner Friday night, wedding Saturday with the ceremony on the side of the house and the reception (dinner and dancing) on the grass in the back with a beautiful view of the private lake. Then, we all woke up together Sunday morning and enjoyed brunch plus the gift opening. The Olive Branch had all of the tables, chairs and linens we needed. The Hub in Grey Eagle catered for us, brought all of the dishes we needed and then took them back to their restaurant to wash them. Everything went so smooth! I remember having so much down time the morning of my wedding just sitting and relaxing that I almost felt like it wasn't my wedding day! Aren't brides usually super stressed and constantly on the go the day of their wedding?! We not only had a wonderful weekend but our guests did as well. People raved about the place! A huge 'thank you' to Marla and Jessica for helping us make our wedding everything it was! Especially making a last minute call to get eco friendly mosquito spray on the lawn the morning of the wedding! We didn't think it would be needed since this was the end of September but thanks to the abnormally warm month we had those bugs were still around! We didn't get a single bite the day of our wedding! We think about our wedding weekend constantly and we can't wait to get back to The Olive Branch for another stay!"

  • Wonderful place to get away

    "My two friends and I spent three nights here. It was right on the lake with beautiful views. We felt right at home during our stay and could not have asked for more. The house was clean and the listing description accurately depicted the location, layout, and amenities. We would definitely stay here again if we were in the area!"
