We had eleven women from five states at Elk Branch Lodge for an annual retreat and had a fantastic time. The cabin was deceptively spacious and there was plenty of room for us to spread out to do our own things, while still providing space for us to all be together at once. The location was great -- very secluded yet close enough to town to go get things we forgot to bring. We enjoyed hiking, visiting the horses and pony, going down to the lake, climbing rocks, and spending cold nights in the toasty hot tub. And some of us stayed in pajamas and didn't leave the cabin all weekend, which was also great! Larry was wonderful, having the fireplace and stoves blazing for us when we arrived and showing us how to keep them going all weekend (we stayed very warm!). He was easily accessible if we needed anything. Everything about the rental was smooth and easy, and we definitely want to come back!
