Couples Getaway

"If you’re looking for an incredibly clean and private space on the island- this is for you. Unbelievable cozy beds, great porch with a view of the water and airport and extra friendly guests. I highly recommend if looking for a place more on the relaxing side of the island. Christine is so helpful and positive and you can’t help but feel great around her, but also keeps your area private and gives you your space."

On Retreat

"What I found at the Freshwater Retreat was just what the Doctor ordered! I am no longer the collegiate drinker, so I was a little leary of what to expect on Put In Bay. I wanted time away to relax and get back in touch with ME. From the moment I arrived I was greeted with a warm smile from Christine "The island girl". The home was inviting and the rooms were a taste of a life gone by. This retreat is a Gemstone and I hope it continues to serve the kind of clientele that helps to keep it in pristine condition. 

Repeat Guests

"My husband and I go to PIB once or twice every year and have stayed several different places. Last year we tried Freshwater and we are now repeat customers because it is the best place to stay in the Bay. They have given so much attention to detail that you will be amazed."

"I love staying at Freshwater Retreat! This is our second time staying and can't wait to come again :) This place is perfect for couples :) I really enjoyed spending time with the Chickens."

"We stay only a Freshwater.....We stay at least 2x a summer!I We have always been treated with respect and warmth! "
