We visited Pembroke Springs retreat for a quick getaway weekend. We have stayed here almost every year for the past 10 years. Lisa, Taeko and Walter always give us a warm welcome. Even though we are not Japanese, we love the excellent Japanese dinners and breakfasts and the heated mineral baths. There are miles of marked trails in the woods...

Gosh - where to begin? The whole thing was fabulous. Extremely comfortable, relaxing (the baths are divine), gourmetlicious (amazing multi-course Japanese meals), and the grounds are impressive. We enjoyed the pond - my wife painted and I fly-fished. A couple of nice largemouths and more bluegill than I can remember. Most of all, the hosts are so gracious - Walter...

We booked all the rooms for our daughter's wedding celebration, a party of 10 people. Lisa was marvelous, and worked with us before the weekend to make sure that all our guests would be comfortable, and she anticipated planning details that we had not thought about. She made the entire facility and all its comforts available to us. She and...

Dear Jim, Thank you for your kind words! What a fun weekend we had, and by far the most relaxed Wedding we have ever hosted. Your newly joined families were so wonderful to work with and everyone on the team had a great time being of service. We appreciate so much that you chose our humble B&B. Sincerely, Lisa

Understated jewel set in the mountains at Star Tannery. This is a Japanese Bed, Breakfast and Hot Spring Bath inn that is run my the Floyd family: Walter, Taeko and Lovely Lisa. This atmosphere is very relaxed and slow paced where you can catch up on your reading, sleep or hiking on their 170+ acre property. Walter works non-stop but...

My bf and I stayed at Pembroke Spring Retreat for the weekend. Lisa greeted us with warmth upon arrival. It was my bf's first Japanese bath experience. We enjoyed the bath and the well prepared Japanese cuisine. It's very relaxing to be surrounded in the natural setting, over 100 acres of greens, hotbath and waking up to delicious Japanese breakfast....

Japanese style B&B, room was clean and comfortable, food was delicious and presented with artistic flair. The Pembroke features two Japanese baths, miles of hiking paths and some of the nicest people working there. After just two nights I was completely relaxed and wishing I could stay longer.

So everyone should know that this is a bed, breakfast and bath retreat. I did a three day two night stay in the Sunrise room for my Boyfriend's birthday surprise. He is obsessed with Japanese culture. Our room was awesome and the people that run the retreat are also equally amazing. Reservations were simple. I looked online to see what...
