“Just wanted to know how much I’ve enjoyed your facilities.  I haven’t slept this well in years, no lie!  Also I would like to thank the chef who accommodated my food allergies.  I never expect that when I travel with a group so it’s been a special treat.”

–Suzanne Ryan

“This past weekend I participated in the Young Adults Group retreat at your facility.  I wanted to share how pleased I am with the facility.  The rooms were warm, the food was yummy, and the beauty of the grounds greatly foster spirituality.  Thank you.”

“Marywood was a beautiful venue for our daughter’s reception.  Alan did a fantastic job on the food.  The day after Thanksgiving we were all busy making crafts for the wedding.  My three year old niece Annabelle was there and wanted to participate in all of the activities.  We gave her the job of cleaning out the miniature white pumpkins.  Every time my sister would hand her the miniature pumpkin she would hold it up and say ‘Perfect’ — that set the whole tone for the wedding.  That is also the way I feel about Marywood…Perfect!  My daughter was engaged there and it was her dream reception.  It was a wonderful experience.”
