"Sky Island was an amazing experience. My husband and I had the opportunity to stay there this past weekend and were pampered by Barb and Chef John.
The food was delectable and so much thought went into the preparation. We feel rejuvenated after being on the majestic property, having the opportunity to meditate and connect to nature, and be in the presence of such gracious hosts.
We have already booked our return trip back, and it can't come soon enough!
I would highly recommend Sky Island to anyone who is looking for a transformational weekend experience! " (July '23)
"We went to Sky Island to celebrate our first wedding anniversary, and it was absolutely magical. The grounds are beautiful, the room was lovely & well stocked and Barb as host was an angel. Barb went out of her way to make our experience special. She set us up for a sunrise walk, cooked a gorgeous spread for breakfast and designed a customized yoga class to truly celebrate the occasion. We felt so cared for. We came as guests but left feeling like family! We will definitely come back!"

"I recently attended my first yoga retreat at Sky Island. The owner, Barbara, was the perfect hostess anticipating every need and offering thee most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. Meals were incredible! Thank you Chef Jon!!! Kristin was our instructor, facilitator and emotional guide. The most valuable part of the weekend for me was Kristin's teachings of empowering tools that are needed to to be successful in climbing life's mountains. Through her teachings I was able to self-reflect and realize changes I needed to incorporate into my daily life so that those mountains might feel more like hills. I am so very grateful for the lessons learned and excited to start that new journey. The fellowship, the yoga, and the incredible scenery were all icing on the cake!! It was worth the 3.5 hour drive from CT and I am looking forward to returning."
"From the moment you pull into Sky Island to days after you leave, a peace comes over you, one that is always there but Sky Island offers the kind of space that brilliantly brings it all out.
I have led retreats here, attended music events and also booked personal writing weekends where I finished two books- all of my experiences here have been transformational. From cozy nooks to rest/write/read to Barb's nourishing meals, the walk to The Point, and the beds, all providing such a good night's sleep. This space is truly a gem, a magical world away but so close to home. Can't wait for my next get-away at Sky Island."
"This past weekend was so memorable, and one of the most healing retreats I’ve ever been to. Your sensitivity and intuitiveness really prevailed throughout the whole weekend. We were very well taken care of In body, mind, and spirit.. The yummiest food ever, perfect accommodations at Sky Island’s bed-and-breakfast, amazing healing sessions, yoga, meditations, laughing, crying, sharing, star gazing, walks, and fantastic discussions all made this such a perfect retreat. If you haven’t been to Sky Island you must go. Barb is so accommodating, food that could rival any top restaurant (all vegetarian), such a love-filled atmosphere where you can truly relax. The love and warmth that Barb has created in this space is evident throughout. Barb even took my car to fill it with gas as I was on empty. What a sign for how I felt when I arrived. Between my car, belly, spirit, mind, I was filled to the brim when I left!"
