The Olive Branch Retreat is the place for things that matter most – your loved ones and you.
Welcome to your place to connect. We’re honored and thrilled to provide a place where people come together to be inspired, nourished, and even enlightened. It’s a playful, joyful, soulful destination built for you, your family, and your friends.
The Olive Branch is a former convent converted into an ‘old world’ style dwelling to enjoy family and friends. The bedrooms are tucked privately into two separate wings. The gathering space, dining room, screened porch, breakfast porch and kitchen are comfortable and furnished with a vintage decor. The atmosphere is perfect for entertaining and relaxation. Large outdoor space, the lake and renovated chicken barn create an expansive space with a variety of activities.
Lush nature surrounds the property. Walking trails are private and run adjacent to 1300 acres of nature reserve. Lake play on Fuller Lake includes fishing, swimming, pontooning and canoeing.
