About the retreat....

Julia "Julie" Donovan, your host, was recently asked by a friend to use her home along the banks of the picturesque Chester River as the location for her nuptials. Since, visitors and friends have often spoken of the beauty of Julie's family home, and she was inspired to share this "special place," a place where many family memories were made.  Thus, the Moon River Retreat was born, and again this magical locale awaits your family, group or gathering to continue the memorable moments!  We want you to enjoy its beauty and make lasting memories with your friends and family, as we have with ours. Settle in, relax, breathe the fresh air and check out Moon River’s crooked dock!
