Our stay in Water’s Edge Luxury Cabin:

From the moment we turned onto the main gravel road leading back to the office, we immediately felt at peace. A quick stop at the front office for contactless check-in and to pick up our cabin keys, then we made our way back the gravel road to Water’s Edge.

Nestled in a wooded lot and surrounded by tall mature trees, Water’s Edge overlooks the central pond and gazebo. Once inside the cabin, we felt like home with the cozy décor and the plethora of kitchen amenities. After we unpacked, we ventured outside to check out the private deluxe hot tub, private firepit area and lovely views of the surrounding picturesque woods.

We couldn’t wait to take a dip in the private hot tub, so we jumped in first and enjoyed the peaceful views while soaking in the deluxe four-person hot tub.

Hot Tub at Water's Edge Cabin

After our relaxing hot tub soak, we fixed dinner- my husband grilled a steak on the stainless-steel grill while I created a meat and cheese board for an appetizer and chopped vegetables for salads. Having a fully stocked kitchen made cooking dinner easy and proper dinnerware and silverware made us feel like we were eating at home.

After dinner, the sun was setting so we made our way to the private firepit. The sounds of nature were abound as crickets were chirping, frogs croaking and the fire crackling…it was our little slice of heaven in the woods! The perfect ending to our night was roasting marshmallows by the fire and creating S’mores, yum!

We woke up refreshed from a peaceful night’s sleep and enjoyed our coffee outdoors with the sounds of chirping birds and crickets, a wonderful start to the day! Then we explored a few of the on-property hiking trails before leaving.

From the cabin tucked perfectly in the woods, the privacy of the cabin (we literally did not see another person during our stay), the relaxing hot tub soak and feeling like a child again while making S’mores by the firepit, we truly enjoyed our stay at Cherry Ridge Retreat and cannot wait to return again for the ultimate secluded getaway!
