This time of year is my favorite. Hydrangeas are in full bloom and the weather is perfect for crafting indoors and getting out during the day to enjoy nature. #valhallaretreat
Sent the kiddos off to school this morning and it was bittersweet. We enjoyed every second this summer but we are all so ready to get back to routines and schedules. 🙌🏼. Now onto the busy time of year for Valhalla Retreat! Weekends are filling up quickly, so book your getaway before it’s too late!
Happy Father's Day to all the amazing dads out there!
Summer is here and it’s a struggle keeping up with everything. The grass has been growing so quickly and needs to be mowed about every 3-4 days. I got behind and I think we could have baled the grass clippings. Thank goodness for a wonderful support system. My father in law and husband to the rescue to bag up all the grass clippings to make the yard look sharp again. 🙌🏼
We received this message from a first time guest. It made our day! We strive to think of all the little details that will continue bringing groups back year after year. ❤️
“I just wanted to personally thank you for such an amazing weekend I just had with my friends at your Valhalla retreat! Your place is the best place we've stayed at! The amount of detail you put in to it is just over the top! From the quality toilet paper (which is a huge thing lol) to the chocolates on the pillow, to the extra cups in the cupboard for my teas to the big tvs in the scrap room-all amazing!! Thank you for all your extra mile touches! We'll be back for sure!”
Today on Memorial Day [and everyday] we honor the sacrifice of our fallen soldiers who’ve died in service to our nation. Two soldiers close to our hearts made the ultimate sacrifice fighting for our country. My great-uncle George was KIA in WWII and a good family friend, Corey Goodnature, was KIA on June 28, 2005. We think of you often and continue praying for all families that have lost loved ones in service to our country. We also pray for the safe return of active duty members. 🇺🇸❤️
Yesterday while mowing I took in the beauty around Valhalla Retreat. The trees are blooming so beautifully right now! Spring has finally arrived and we were more than ready.
To all the moms out there...Happy Mother's Day!
Who’s ready for the weekend?! 🙋🏼♀️

Monday mornings=cleaning the retreat. I can’t tell you how happy it makes me to see scraps of paper or threads of fabric. That shows me that people we enjoying our retreat just as we had hoped and prayed.

An insightful article about why every woman needs a girls weekend. Book your girls weekend at Valhalla Retreat to scrapbook, quilt or just hang out. You will leave feeling refreshed! ❤️
It doesn't have to be anything fancy or elaborate, but a simple few days away from the norm with some women you trust is a special kind of cleanse.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!
When the weather has you down during spring break and the retreat is open for a few days, you take advantage of much need girl time. The girls are learning to design and sew minky blankets as gifts and I’m catching up on my Christmas scrapbook.
The calm before the [next] storm. ❄️☃️💨
Is it too early to decorate for Spring?
Guilty...🙋🏼♀️ Anyone else have this problem?
When you book a winter retreat, consider renting show shoes for the weekend and take advantage of the miles of wooded trails that Valhalla Retreat has to offer. This winter we have incredible snow too!
Are you looking for something fun to do this weekend? Broadway Bike Co has rental snowshoes in a variety of sizes.
We hope the group this weekend gets lots of scrapbooking done!
Blizzard 2019. We already had rooms booked in the cities for a dance competition, that got cancelled, so we decided to go anyways. Got this picture from our neighbor of our road...you can see our mailbox on the right side. 😬. Trying to head home this morning. Stay safe and warm friends.
EDITED: We made it home with no problems at all. Those plow drivers and all other county/state workers are truly amazing!!

This blog post made my heart happy to know that others are loving our retreat and enjoying it as much as we hoped and prayed for. ❤️Book your relaxing retreat away whether it’s with family or friends, come enjoy Valhalla Retreat.
A couple of months ago while at work I turned purple, began to slur my words, and was dizzy. I went home shortly after the episode, called my doctor the next day, and started to figure out what had happened. My doctor gave me two prescriptions. The first one was blood pressure medicine and the second one was to slow down. Valhalla Retreat was a pivotal, important step in the right direction. I cried healing tears on their porch, spent quality downtime with Mark and the kids, then after our stay, I wiped my tears, and began to move forward with taking a few more items off of my plate.
I’m not sure about you, but I’m ready for some “normal” Minnesota winter temps. This beautiful sight on the way to Valhalla Retreat yesterday was worth the cold temperature though. Some weekends are still open in February and one in March. Book your getaway today! www.valhallaretreat.com
Anyone else feel this way with the harsh weather the past few days? We have openings left in February and March so you can come hibernate with your friends for the weekend. www.valhallaretreat.com
