 Here is what some guests have had to say about their stay at the Retreat:

 Dear Pat and Rick,

 Thank you so much for the wonderful stay. We loved how quiet our stay was and how friendly and kind you were.  Being surrounded by beautiful farmland and trees gives a real down home feel. I loved the big waves and smiles when either of you would drive by. We have stayed in bigger places that don't compare.  The trails were nice to get some serenity without leaving the campground.  Our dog Maybelle loved to walk with your dog, Buddy. He was also a great ambassador. My husband and I have been on the lookout for gems to stay at, this is absolutely one. Thank you for everything. We will be returning. Thank you both so much!

 Ellen and Boyd



"I just wanted to take a minute to say thank you for the great experience.
Sitting in my campsite and enjoying the fire, evening air, the forest and the Owls talking to me was a perfect evening. Everything was first class from first impressions upon my arrival to the clean washrooms and showers (including out houses), shelters and of course the Tipi.
As a bonus at approx. 3 AM a pack of coyotes came through the area. Yapping and carrying on. Needless to say I lay there with one eye open thinking about the fact that the tent does not go all the way to the bottom. They moved on and I fell comfortably to sleep.
All the very best"


"Our clients from Germany and England were very happy with their stay at the Retreat and with Diane's program. Marc, the guide, was impressed with how clean and organized things were and of course with the cultural program with Diane and Dave."                      Mike Kuhnert, Timberwolf Tours

"Just returned from camp. What a wonderful place you have there - it was awesome. The girls loved it and totally enjoyed the weekend. Rick and Pat were absolutely fabluous hosts - they even lent me a rain jacket for the weekend. Diane's program was so fabulous and the girls enjoyed her so much we invited her for lunch. Thank you for all your help with the planning. And we will be spreading the word about this great place to our other friends in Guiding."      Cynthia Roy, Girl Guide leader.

"Thank you sooooo much for your hospitality! My family was very happy to spend a night at the cabin...it was their Christmas present from us so I am happy they enjoyed it. We are already planning another stay with some friends...see you soon."      Josh Klassen

"I am very honored to be given a chance to work with the Elk Island Retreat. They show a very warm welcome to all that go there to see and feel the true outdoors. As a Cree First Nations of Canada, I would encourage all my friends and family to go there and feel the warmth of a good tipi experience. With that, my friends, may this year bring many good guests and memories to your retreat. Hiy hiy."      Adrian Four Dancing Eagles LaChance

Kelly and I would like to send out thanks and appreciation for all of the exceptional service we received on our trip to your retreat.  We both thoroughly enjoyed the experience and plan to return again some day.  Your facilities are exceptional in what you provide to people, the catering was phenomenal and the food delicious.  I will not hesitate to recommend your facility to others and hope that all of my friends and family can experience your retreat.
Again, thank you for the experience and incredible customer service.  See you again sometime.

Lynn Nelson and Kelly Davis.

 Hi Pat,
Greg and I would just like to thank you and your husband for your hospitality for our night tipi camping last week. It was a great experience and something we will look back on with fond memories. Pity it was only for one night. Thanks again for the additional blankets and axe which really came in handy.

 Kind regards

Victoria & Greg

Hello Pat,
I wanted to e-mail to thank you so much for your accommodations. We went in, not knowing what to expect, and both of us were blown away. The campsite is very well kept, and the site amenities were fabulous! I have camped many times, but mainly in BC, and this was one of the best experiences I have had.
Thank you
Jackie Spedding
