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!

What makes this estate unique

The spectacular views take my breath away every time I look around - as well as every one else who comes here!

Quiet and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

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!

Perfect slice of Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Relaxing, comfortable weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

I came to the Rose and Goat Retreat with a group of friends for a weekend to celebrate my 31st birthday. It was perfect - we loved the view, the fireplaces, the open design of the main floor, the big kitchen, and the HOT TUB! Also, the king bed in the master bedroom is so comfortable, I slept really well. Margo was extremely kind - she even left me a birthday card and a bottle of wine as a birthday gift! She was really helpful and encouraged us to have fun and not worry about being loud. The house is a 15 minute drive from Mass MOCA, which is an incredible museum - we spent the day there and had a great time. There were 7 of us, so the cost was really affordable. The Rose and Goat Retreat gave us the most bang for our buck! We'll definitely be back.

Great weekend away with friends and our kids

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely weekend at the house with friends and 3 kids under 5. They loved the "secret bed" loft upstairs and the swings outside. The house had everything we needed!
