Guest Reviews

Was a very quiet and peaceful retreat. Gail and Ralph were perfect hosts. Plan on repeat visit soon and will probably be a goto spot for us. Would recommend as a great place to unwind. I had a problem with the web site for booking but called and Gail had resolved and returned my call very quickly. I give Shady Acres a 5 out of 5 star rating! Jim S. July 2015
