So glad we found the Crescent Moon! We are her with family from South Carolina, Illinois, Iowa, Wisconsin, Washington, and Minnesota for a family reunion. So much better than all the separate motel rooms. We are please with the rooms and the living arrangement. We’ve had a wonderful time visiting without sitting on motel beds. If we ever come back we’ll stay here again! – Phil and Helen S.

Cindy, what a wonderful retreat for quilters! You were so thoughtful in how you furnished you “home away from home” for us quilters – can’t say enough about the amenities, cleanliness, ease of access and just the whole atmosphere that we are able to sew together in such a big room. Too much fun! Thank you so much for such a great experience! Definitely would like to return! -Denise R.

Cindy, OMG what a wonderful place! It is beautifully laid out quilters dream! It has plenty of space for quilting needs, cutting, large sewing area, etc. and a huge felt board. And a wonderful relaxing area, when I take the time to relax ( LOL ). Your sleeping accommodations are very pretty and I slept very well. Thank you to the friend that told us about this gorgeous place. I can’t get enough! -Donna M.

This is our 3rd time here and we will be back next year. Great place! -Shelley, Katy, Ruth, Mary, and Cris

This is the 2nd time of staying at the Crescent Moon Retreat. Our group of 7 really enjoyed the clean spacious and modern accommodations. Thanks for working with the change of # in the group of people planning to come. Thanks for your flexibility in timing our of stay also! It’s a place we plan to return to in the fall with friends next year and summer with family next year too! -Minneapolis

Thank you for such a cute and comfortable place! We had a blast! -Lisa F.

Cindy, I can’t thank you enough for allowing us to stay in your retreat home.  It well exceeded our expectations and worked perfectly for us.  I hope that everything was cleaned up well for you, as I needed to leave early to get back for Mother’s Day.  I expect this weekend to generate a lot of business for you in the future, because ALL of our guest local or not have mentioned what a perfect place it was.  Thank you again and I am sure we will be  contacting you for our future stays. Thanks again! –Mandy

Hi Cindy, just wanted to tell you that we had such a great time at your place! All of us “girls” really enjoyed your place last week and it was perfect for our quilting needs. It didn’t hurt that the weather was amazing either! Our 89 year old mother who joined us was able to see the house our family lived in when us girls were just tots – only a few blocks away! It was really special and we look forward to doing it again! -Pam, Diane and the girls

Hi Cindy,
I just wanted to say thank you for giving us the opportunity to visit Crescent Moon. All of us really enjoyed ourselves and got a lot of scrapbooking done. You were an excellent host, everything was clean and comfortable. The fully stocked kitchen made it easy for us to cook what we wanted. I will definitely be re-booking Crescent Moon Retreat! Maybe next time you can join us:) -Thank you again, Lisa
Hi Cindy   I'm so glad you opened such a nice place so close to us!  We had a great time.  The house is decorated so nicely, the beds were comfy, the comforters warm, and the welcome cookies and gifts were much appreciated. -Thanks Again, Robin

Cindy, What a great place! We will definitely be back, had a great time. -Karen, Kari, & Peggy

Stayed At Crescent Moon Retreat. What a fabulous place! It has been redone, so it is like new. Comfy, great lighting, warm, smells good, clean, lots of little extras, lots of space, comfortable beds. I don’t know what else I can say. There is nothing negative I can think of. Cindy has thought of pretty much everything for a refreshing and relaxing getaway. Thanks so much. I can’t wait to return! -Joyce
