Caballete Retreat ~ About us: ~This Rustic Retreat is located in one of the most beautiful ridgelines in Jackson County. Owned by Dan & Sara Scholze, and managed Sara, Caballete Retreat (Caballete is Spanish for 'ridge') is large enough to accommodate up to eight (8) guests comfortably. (Additional Guests by prior approval only please) The Valley and Ridges Surrounding have been kept in the family for several generations. Caballete Retreat is a 'Home' more so than a Cabin or Retreat and was lived in full time up until the Fall of 2005.
A Secluded, Private, Ridge Retreat: ~Need to Relax? You've picked the right place. Nestled into the Ridges, this Retreat offers a secluded, very quiet and private get-away. Wildlife abounds with birds, squirrels, deer, turkey, and you might even see the elusive red fox, or a Big Buck just yards from the home.
~Hiking the Ridges is allowed, but please obey all No Trespassing Signs, as we want to respect the neighbors land.
~There is a Beautiful Library with a two story wall filled with shelves of books, photos, and other unique items. Another Highlight is the Sunken Den with a Stone Floor made of Actual Stones dug from the area, and a beautiful Wood Floor. One final special room is the Music Room, where a Large Piano (and it's tuned!) awaits the right person to make some beautiful relaxing music.
Everything but your Food & Drink....: ~All Linens (Sheets), Towels, Hand Towels, and Wash Cloths are provided at NO extra charge. There are dishes available and a few pots and pans for cooking. All we ask is you treat them as your own, and please leave for the next guests to enjoy.
~No Food or Drink is provided, other than the fresh spring water from the well. Local phone service and local TV Channels are provided along with DSL Wireless Internet.
~Outside there are Three multi-level Decks, with a Weber grill awaiting some juicy Steaks (Charcoal included)! A stone camp fire pit can be found with plenty of room to relax around the fire or lay in the hammock. Once again, all the wood provided.

Perfect weekend getaway with a great view and a cozy place!
Our family enjoyed the weekend at the Caballete Retreat! The place was very well cleaned, and had everything we could possibly need. The decor was perfect for this place and it was even topped off with fresh flowers that were greatly appreciated. The owners had great communication prior to and during our stay. We would love to come back!
A couple of our highlights: It's about a mile from the county road, so we went on a nice jog as a family through the winding and hilly roads. The piano was a great extra and was enjoyed by the whole family! The bird feeder was stocked and we saw so much wildlife between deer and birds. Even in the spring when all the foliage isn't in, it was still a beautiful view! It was nice to have a couple spaces that were separate from the rest of the house for a napping baby :) The decks had beautiful morning sun for coffee on the deck!
Thanks again for the great stay!
A lovely, secluded retreat with stunning surroundings
We enjoyed our time here immensely. The house is completely surrounded by ridges so you feel like you're miles away from anyone else. It may sound simple but the firewood being included was a really nice touch. It was great not to worry about hauling in firewood and fretting about running out, especially on a November evening. Having a roaring fire is so relaxing and we had no trouble meeting that need. It should also say something that we never left the property until the last minute of our rental time. Despite the chilly temps outside, the house was very cozy. The kitchen was well stocked even for the Thanksgiving spread we made. The kitchen is a bit cramped and the cooking utensils are well-loved but we had everything we could have wanted to use at our fingertips. We considered stealing the divine dinette set but thought better of it in the end. There were plenty of linens and towels. It was nice having the different spaces so you can get a little alone time even with 5 people staying. There are many different levels to the house so you have to be careful initially but you get used to when to watch your step fairly quickly. If you have guests with mobility issues, you will want to check carefully to make sure they can navigate the multiple staircases and steps. Luckily, the main floor is level with the entrance and the kitchen, bathroom, and pull out couch are all on the same level so it wasn't a problem for our guest who uses crutches. If you need more than one room for people who have trouble with stairs, this isn't the place for you. Hiking the ridge was a challenge but we felt accomplished after doing it, -- yes, the person who uses crutches did make the summit!! The host was very thorough at check-in but then gave us our privacy (even though we might have gotten a little bit rowdy at one point). The TV is small and in a room by itself which for us was a plus. We didn't want a huge TV blaring but wanted to be able to watch a movie when the mood struck. Overall, a great get away.
Thank you for your nice review, Dale.
The seclusion and privacy of Caballete Retreat is enjoyed by many of our guests. The fire pit offers a cozy and relaxing ambiance to enjoy laughs and stories until late into the evening.
Many delicious meals have been prepared, even for large groups, in the cozy kitchen.
As noted, the levels and steps are many, yet with safety and caution neither have posed a problem. Several guests with mobility issues, including wheelchairs have enjoyed staying at Caballete Retreat. We do suggest careful consideration to our guests with special needs as we want them to feel comfortable and safe during their visit.
Caballete Retreat is located in one of the most beautiful ridge settings in the area. Although the climb to the top of the ridge can be a workout, the view from the top will take your breath away.
WiFi and satellite TV is provided for the convenience and entertainment of our guests.
We enjoy sharing Caballete Retreat with our guests and are very happy when they have a good time and appreciate the beauty of nature at the doorstep of Caballete Retreat.
Beautiful setting, peaceful and relaxing.
3 deer greeted us as we drove up to the retreat. Birds were a plenty and the cabin was an architectural feast, from the stone floor in front of fireplace to the balconies and different floor levels both inside and out!
Thank you for you review.
There is a great opportunity to see wildlife around Caballete Retreat. Everything from the deer, raccoons, fox, and even a bear have entertained guests. Bird watchers have a never ending flow of many varieties. Even a few flying squirrels glide past in the evenings.
The rustic, but modern home, does provide character not often seen. We are very happy you enjoyed and appreciated it.
We look forward to your return.
Great weekend home
A great weekend retreat. Beautiful location in the woods but also convenient to town. Comfortable place to stay. Hosts were very friendly.
Caballete Retreat is located in a very beautiful and peaceful wooded setting. It is a short ten minute drive from town. The retreat provides a cozy atmosphere for a family or a group of friends getting together.
Beautiful property in a gorgeous area. We only stayed one night to attend a local festival, but had everything we needed. Check in was easy, all the amenities were provided, and had plenty of space for our family. The cabin could have been cleaner which is why I could only give four stars, but everything else was great.
Thank you for your review. We apologize for not meeting your expectations for cleanliness. We strive to keep Caballete Retreat clean and comfortable. We prepare carefully for each guest. We had all the carpets shampooed a few days before your visit. The retreat is older and rustic in some areas, and there are high ceilings and bookshelves that can collect dust? We are giving the entire cabin a review for cleanliness so as to not disappoint any future guests. We do hope you return and see how we are doing.
Awesome owners and property very much recommended
Thank you for the nice review. We are glad to share the property and want our guests to enjoy their stay. We hope you return in the future.
