Above and Beyond

"From the warm welcome to the loving sendoff, we could not be more pleased with the staff at Wild Rice Retreat. "Above and beyond" doesn't even begin to describe the level of service we received. The sincere quality of care and highest-level attention to every intricate detail is unsurpassed in the world of hospitality"

Jamie Belz, Nutritional Therapy Association

Exceeded my expectations

"The attentiveness and flexibility of the staff, the beauty of the facility and surroundings, and the overall warmth and kind vibe of the place. I led a group retreat here and our participants truly loved it-- we are already thinking about dates for our next retreat at Wild Rice! Working with the Wild Rice team was wonderful-- HIGHLY RECOMMENDED"
