A cottage all of our own, surrounded by lots of country space and trees with plenty of room to go for walks. The pond fountain could be heard from the deck swing and critters were endless to watch! Amazing Breakfast included and hosts were super friendly. The sharing of stories enhanced the trip. We had an amazing weekend at Hawk Valley Retreat and will go back!

Thanks so much for taking the time to post a review. Glad you could hear the fountain (one of my favorite sounds) and were able to take advantage of the deck swing. Here's to a wonderful spring. Hal and Wendy

Great food, great hospitality, very scenic area. Would recommend this place for a great get away week-end. A great place for getting away from the city life and relaxing in a quiet country atmosphere.

Thank you so much...you have hit the nail on the head. We want people to feel comfortable, relaxed and to totally enjoy their stay with us. Whether visiting for a much needed get-away or as you mention perhaps staying while on business, we want our guests to look at this as their home away from home (of course with none of the chores). Thanks again. Wendy and Hal

Wendy and Hal are the perfect hosts. Their complimentary breakfast was excellent, my wife really enjoyed that. The grounds were nice with that country atmosphere. The room was perfect with all the needs you require. We are planning to go back in the near future.
