Guestbook comments from the manager
Mesa Del Sol is magnificent in it's majesty and peaceful solitude. I truly loved being there. I can't remember being in a place so full of awe. I was and still am truly captivated as I never had the opportunity to sit with a landscape so vast under a perfect sky where nothing really moved but the shadows and the wind. ..words cannot express the sense of space ... I will never forget the sky, the tress, the rocks and earth....the sound of waking birds and the winding river. I was transported and at peace.

I never wanted to leave Mesa Del Sol. I lord the big living room and perfect kitchen..the amazing lazy Susan table and the perfect swing. Before leaving I lingered to the last minute and before I left walked the grounds in silent wonder for a final look. Each tun I saw something I missed before. A chair, a sign, a rock formation, numerous small details. Everything so tasteful and comfortable in it' surrounding s. Please know you efforts have not gone unnoticed. We had a wonderful time. I am eternally grateful I found Mesa Del Sol and had the opportunity to meet you. You have created the perfect retreat.

AMAZING! INCREDIBLE! AWESOME!

  • 5 of 5
After looking for a year for the perfect setting for our 50th wedding anniversary celebration and family gathering of 23 including 10 children, we found Mesa Del Sol. It was absolutely perfect in every way. It is a beautiful site, very well maintained and totally portrays the love of its owner, Ann, who was a delight to work with and very accommodating. It was very relaxing and totally fun for a large group. The large pool and spa were a plus. We played many games in the large grassy areas. The round lazy susan table was a hit too for gatherings. We could go on forever about our great experience at Mesa Del Sol. Oh yes, we did wine tasting there, and the wine made at Mesa Del Sol was fantastic! We all wanted to stay longer and hope to return.

Priceless family experience!

  • 5 of 5
For the third time our family (23 of us this year, age one to ninety-one), spent a wonderful week at this beautiful property. As my nephew said upon arrival (from Pennsylvania), "When I get out of the car
here, I am immediately on vacation! No transition time necessary!" We enjoyed every bit of the accommodations and grounds. An awesome thing about Mesa del Sol is the space!!! The grounds are one-of-a-kind ~ huge oak trees, lots of lawn, flowers and plants, a big fenced pool, great views. We could relax in the shade with a book, chat together overlooking the river, or play games on the grass. We could walk down the heather-bordered lane, around the vineyard, and out to the pond to feed the fish. The chickens had regular visitors and the apricot and plum trees were checked daily for ripe fruit. Our family loves the water so the pool was a huge plus and was perfect on the warm afternoons.The hot tub was a big hit for everyone. It was easy to spend all day outside, just heading into the kitchen to find something to eat. Each night we gathered in the living room for an "event" ~ to entertain each other with music, a magic show, a birthday celebration. With the addition of a couple of tents we all had a comfortable space to call our own. The great grandparents of our clan were so pleased with the honor of enjoying the beautiful master suite!
Our week was fun and relaxing and rejuvenating and a chance for reconnecting with everyone. It was over too soon and we didn't want to leave!
Ann, you have a gem of a place in Mesa del Sol. Thanks for making us feel so welcome and for sharing it with us once again!

A Perfectly Perfect Retreat Location!

  • 5 of 5
We were bringing together a group of deeply service-hearted people for our annual retreat and wanted it to be at a place of beauty, tranquility and wonder. We could not have dreamed up a more perfect location than Mesa del Sol! The magnificent oak trees, the breathtaking view, the lavender fields, the welcoming kitchen, the spacious Great Room, the many inviting nooks and crannies that blended rustic charm, elegance and comfort so impeccably...our attendees were swept off their feet by all of it. And in Ann we discovered a kindred spirit -- so gracious and warm-hearted. She made our group feel entirely at home -- and it's clear that her love for the property runs deep. It was an honor to meet her and to hold our retreat on these special grounds. The experience will stay with all of us for a long time to come!

Amazing Business Retreat

  • 5 of 5
Our company of 12 people recently stayed at Mesa Del Sol for 4 days and had an amazing time. We were there in the winter, so we thoroughly enjoyed the hot tub and the gorgeous views during the day, while hanging out around the cozy fireplace at nighttime. The living room, outside grill area, kitchen and dining room were all great for us to come together and bond during our stay. We've stayed in many places for our work trips, but this one was great for a group our size.

Gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5
We spent an amazing Thanksgiving at Mesa del Sol. The property is stunning, and the views breathtaking. We enjoyed the extensive grounds--lazy days going on walks, playing lawn games, and cooking big meals in the large kitchen and enormous outdoor grills. I'd like to come back again when it's warmer so we can enjoy the gorgeous pool!

Magical property, can't wait to go back!

One simple word....AMAZING!!!

  • 5 of 5
Amazing, the word that was repeated over and over throughout the weekend from everyone at the retreat.

Based on the glowing reviews (which we know can be subjective) on this website and the Mesa Del Sol website we sent a personal check to someone on faith. Something in my gut said this place is legit. BOY that is an understatement. The entire experience from start to finish re-affirmed my faith in humanity. Ann was so wonderful, attentive and gracious making sure we were comfortable. We travel quite frequently, I sure wish all of our travel experiences were this pleasant. The last thing you want on a vacation are any "hidden surprises" that do not meet expectations after you have paid. Mesa Del Sol was such a breath of fresh air!!!

We had 20 adults celebrating a family reunion. The retreat setting was perfect for our gathering. The layout of the retreat allows groups to be together if they choose or there are private secluded areas where people can venture off on their own.
Sleeping facilities were SPOTLESS!!! and very comfortable. (One comment here is although the website says sleeps 15-20 that is true if you are coupled, related or comfortable sharing a bed with someone. Otherwise it requires flexibility)
Kitchen/cooking facilities were excellent. We cooked all weekend and everything worked out fantastic.

I literally had to walk through the house on Sunday and push people out the door to get them to leave they did not want to go.

We have already started planning our return.
