  • 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!"

  • Amazing Lake Home on Big Sauk!

    "Our stay here was absolutely wonderful! It was myself and 10 of my other friends for a girls weekend to celebrate the upcoming wedding for one of the girls. The cabin is beautiful, and furnished with very up to date appliances, and has really comfortable furniture. Chadd is an awesome host, he was very quick to responding to any questions or concerns we had, even throughout our weekend stay. I highly recommend staying here for any type of gathering, it was wonderful!"

  • BEST FAMILY GET-AWAY WEEKEND EVER!

    "Family get-away in this cabin was probably the best I've ever been to. Its beautiful inside and out, love the yard, plenty of acres and space... we fished right off the river (Mississippi), we enjoyed the sauna, we have plenty of space to sleep. Very spacious place, recommend for kids. Everything was an A+! Only thing I would wish for was a lake behind the house AND more walking scenes/distance/hiking & WiFi."

  • A Perfect Summer Vacation!

    "Our week at Boulder Beach Lodge was the perfect family vacation. The hospitality provided by the owners was very inviting and made us feel welcome in their lake home. Rick gave us a personal tour of the property and answered all of our questions. The accommodations are new and luxurious with plenty of space to spread out as well as two modern bathrooms. The lake home sits right off of the lake and the views are simply stunning. With kids ages 2 through 18, there is something for everyone at Boulder Beach Lodge. Our 2-year-old daughter absolutely loved the private sand beach and the crystal clear water. The 10 to 13-year-old kids loved swimming in the water, fishing off the dock, and playing pool. The older kids enjoyed the kayaks while the adults enjoyed the deck and the view. Everyone enjoyed the pontoon, bon fires, s’mores, and spending time together. We enjoyed Boulder Beach Lodge so much that we have already booked for next year. Can’t wait!"
