Quiet Mind Retreat totally exceeded my expectations. Breathtaking views and exquisite artwork throughout the retreat. My suite was so charming and comfortable and I was able to really relax for the first time in a while. Also, I purchased meals and loved the fact that I could eat these delicious Italian meals safely in my room with contactless delivery (a BIG safety plus during these times). I will definitely be back whenever I need a relaxing getaway!! Highly recommend.

upgraded to a suite.... Wasnt a true upgrade nor a suite. The bed was a full size, snacks provided in room with nothing to say whether they were complimentary or not but in the communal area a sign said charge for in room snacks. We were told due to covid no massages however we witnessed people going in and out of the massage area. the room was called lake view something which was very deceiving considering the only view we had was the parking lot and back side of the mountain. It was extremely hot in the room and no way to control the temperature. It stated no children under the age of 12 yet kids were yelling and running down halls. it states they book rooms with 24 hour "vacancy" due to covid but upon check in we couldn't get in early because our room was dirty and hadn't been cleaned. Definitely will never stay here nor recommend to any one. Oh and the gourmet food.... its in plastic containers that is pre made not same day and it is a vegan resort.

Beautiful views and amazing location. Very convenient to the highway but no road noise despite proximity. The common room/kitchen area is large and well appointed and, despite restrictions forced by Covid 19 safety, it was still welcoming. Hot tub with views of the lake was really nice.
