Paul had great suggestions for local activities and was very helpful with getting us settled in (friendly cat!). The location was ideal for us and the small pond in back was nice to sit by.

If you are looking for an updated house that is comfortable, I recommend that you look elsewhere. Also, the owner watches tv which you can hear easily in your room. Not peaceful.

Response from Paul:
Junah, The Gemstone Retreat House is a wonderful home not a hotel. The Gemstone Retreat House has simple guidelines. Junah ignored them. 1. He left wet towels in his room for 3 days instead of hanging them to dry. 2. He left the windows open and exited the house without locking it. These two are guidelines the Gemstone asks guests not to ignore. 3. The Gemstone offered another room with a larger bed Junah refused. And to complain of birds singing! :( too bad! Junah has a negative energy. We recommend this person choose a hotel. Thank you, Gemstone Retreat House :) Namaste!
