Our stay at Cherry Ridge exceeded expectations! The attention to detail on the exterior and interior was exceptional. I am very particular. I don't like accommodations that look tired, worn or unkept. Cherry Ridge was immaculate! This was our mini-moon! It was a great place to unwind and relax. The jacuzzi was perfectly set in the woods. The grill was...

My husband and I have made Cherry Ridge our anniversary get away now for 2 years and planning on many more to come. It is a great place to get away from all your stresses.

We spent a few days at the Observatory for a mini-Honeymoon and we loved it! Very beautiful and private house with great views and everything you could need to relax. From the pool, hot-tub, plunge pool and firepit to the unbelievable shower, we'll definitely be back!
