Windrift Hall was a magical haven filled with beautiful nuances, peaceful scenery and so much positive energy. We had our Spring Awakening Retreat at Susanne’s place, and couldn’t have wished for a better spot. It is such a perfect venue for a weekend getaway, retreat, intimate wedding or a gathering with loved ones.
