We really enjoyed our stay at the rapid Retreat. We had rented another cabin and we got a call from the office they informed us of A roof leak that had happened in the cabin we had rented,so they offered us this cabin. First I would like to say thank you. My wife had been sick for the last 2 years and I thank God she has recovered so we really needed this get away. She said that she wanted to go to a cabin for a weekend,So I booked it,We will definitely be back. REALLY ENJOYED IT
