Peaceful and Relaxing

5 on September 08, 2014

My husband and I just had a great overnight stay. Our trip was short. This was the most relaxing and peaceful setting. The bed was so comfortable and we could hear the birds in the morning. The house is absolutely beautiful. We will definitely have to make another trip when we can enjoy more time here.

Lovely and Quiet Getaway

My wife and I had a wonderful overnight here! We were able to relax, play games, watch a movie, and have a nice walk in the woods. It was just what we wanted! Breakfast was wonderful and Deb was very willing to accommodate our diet. We will be back!

Awesome weekend at Norweigen Wood Retreat

4.8 on April 30, 2012

We had a girls scrapbooking weekend at Norweigen Wood Retreat. We watched movies all weekend on the huge flat screen TV while scrapbooking. I did digital scrapbooking and basically lived in the most comfortable chair ever. It had a lap top tray on it, so I was able to work on my computer, watch a movie, and not get a back ache. It was awesome. The food was incredible. All organic, healthy, and we requested vegetarian. Deb had a menu typed up and I couldn't wait for the mext meal. The house is beautiful, the screened in porch is great, and the walks in the woods were nice as well. I can't say enough nice things about this bed and breakfast and Deb. She is so nice and very welcoming. We will be coming every year.
