“We elected to hold our Management Retreat at the Inn & Spa at Cedar Falls because we needed a place where our team could really get away from the demands of the workplace, yet still be close to home. We had an outstanding time. The service was great and the accommodations were top-notch. We’re already planning to come back next year.”

“I first encountered the Inn at Cedar Falls in July, 1993, when I was assigned to review the place for Conde Nast Traveler. After dinner, I recall interviewing a New York woman who invited me outside to howl at the full moon. Since then, I’ve hauled scores and scores of my fellow workmates–from Car and Driver magazine–to the Inn, where we have always been treated far better than we deserved. Every dinner has been a festive feast, every breakfast has caused us to linger into mid-morning, and every night spent in the comfy cabins has induced the kind of oversleeping known only to ether addicts and fainting goats. In 2012, I abandoned the magazine business to retire to the wilds of Montana. I have few regrets. But one will be no further trips to see Ellen and the Inn.”–John Phillips, July, 2012
