    our vision

    Our vision at Blackbird Retreat is to provide our guests a unique Maritime experience. Whether its staying in our charming BnB rooms or artistic eco cabins, our aim is to provide a lasting impression on our guests.  Furthermore, as people who practice what we preach, we believe in locally grown food, farm to fork, and a holistic approach to life that includes massage, hikes, bikes, river swims, saunas/cold dunks, and love of the natural world.
