About Margo Van Peterson
Guest satisfaction and enjoyment of their time here at the Rose and Goat Retreat are paramount to me. I love to travel with my husband Cal and our two boys, and we know how important clean accommodations are - and to that end I strive here at the Rose and Goat Retreat. I split time between the Rose and Goat Retreat in the Berkshires, Nantucket Island, and our Ormond Beach, Florida beach house.
Margo Van Peterson purchased this Estate in 1974
Why Margo Van Peterson chose Florida
My father bought this 50 acre property in 1974 from Marjorie Moore. It was a summer cabin place since the 1920's and where I spent summers as a child at Comsomore cabin. All seven cottages had names and I have rebuilt three of them, keeping their original quirky names - Comsomore, Lingerhere, and Hilltop. The Rose and Goat Retreat Main Lodge we built in 2000 in the spot of Marjorie's country store and former home, which sadly, the years had taken its toll on and was beyond restoration. My father's dream was to establish a retreat here for those looking for physical, mental, and spiritual rejuvenation. This place is very special to me and I love to share it with others who find it special as well!

Quiet and beautiful
We had a great time at the Rose and Goat. The property is nice and big, on a very quiet street. The sounds system in the house was great, and the fire pit in the front of the property got plenty of use. The house was fully stocked with paper towels, garbage bags, toilet paper, dish soap, hand soap, towels, cook wear, glasses and dishwasher detergent. We really didn't need to bring anything other than clothes. Margo, the owner, was very nice and even when she visited the property to do her own thing on the first floor did not bother us upstairs. We had a great time- thank you very much!
Thank you so much for taking your time to write about your experience at the Rose and Goat Retreat! Hope to see you all back again - you will be most welcome!!!
Unique with a personal touch
First, I have to say that Margo is a most attentive and concerned host. She was fantastic with communication before and throughout our stay. The day we arrived happened to be hot and humid and before I could say anything, Margo had an AC installed. The house itself is truly unique, a luxury log cabin. The little added touches that personalize the house, like inspirational quotes, really present a warm and positive feeling. The scenery is unbelievable. High atop the mountain, there view is spectacular. I wish that I had time to sit back, relax and enjoy the environment. The house has everything one could possibly need...the kitchen is fully stocked with cooking utensils, pots and pan, glasses, dishes, etc.. I will definitely consider coming back when I need a relaxing and quiet vacation!
Beautiful, comfortable, gracious host
My friends and I had a wonderful time, despite a frosty winter storm. The house was comfortable and full of little niceties. The hot tub was wonderful and Margo is a wonderful host. I look forward to returning!
We had a wonderful stay and look forward to going back. Margo was very accomadating and pleasant. House was clean and cozy and the views were breathtaking.
Delightful weekend! We had a great time. Margot is a very accommodating host.
Perfect slice of Paradise!
I can't say enough about how wonderful this little gem is. Margo is a wonderful host and went above and beyond to make our stay the best it could be. She was even in on the birthday surprise! The house itself is very clean and spacious, well setup and has a wonderful secluded setting. Being there in the winter, we didn't get to take advantage of all the beautiful outdoor space and amenities, but look forward to going back. Thank you again Margo for making our girl's weekend the best it could have been!
