Is it true?


Yes, people talk!

We are a proud supporter of 

"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. Christie and Cliff are so sweet and accommodating and they have given so much attention to detail that you will be amazed."

"Convenient to airport. Quiet and away from the busy center area. Christine was great. Historic house with updated baths and common areas. Great value for area."

"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."

"What a great weekend! So I found myself needing a break..a serious "cool your jets" break. 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". She was very charming and passionate. Her honest passion for the Island and also for her retreat was a geniunely proud "parent" moment. The home and shop were immaculate and well represented just as they were on the website. The home was inviting and the rooms were a taste of a life gone by. I felt extremely comfortable and every expectation was exceeded. This retreat is a Gemstone and I hope it continues to serve the kind of clientele that helps to keep it in pristine condition. Charlie the cat is my new buddy...this beautiful cat has SO much love for you. Thank you Christine!

"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 and Charlie the cat."

"We went to PIB for the weekend and had the fabulous experience of staying at this cute B&B for the weekend. We felt lucky to find it at the last minute and when we got there felt even luckier because that place was so great and Christie was amazing! We stayed upstairs and our room was great- I wouldn't recommend the upstairs for anyone who has difficulty with stairs because being an old home they are steep. The bathroom was lovely and everything was super clean. We enjoyed both the front porch and the back deck. I loved watching the chickens run around and petting Charlie the cat. I loved how it is out of town so we could enjoy some peace and quiet after spending some time downtown at the hangouts. Highly recommend you check this place out!"
