I have been working with four sites similar to RetreatFinder and yours is BY FAR the most user friendly and intuitive site I have found. Thank you for designing it so well. I have spent way too much time on poorly developed sites. Retreat Finder is Wonderful!

Alec Franklor of RetreatFinder is a gem!  RetreatFinder is easy to use, but I didn't have much time.  Alec was extremely helpful, providing assistance and follow-up at every step of the way.  This made my experience of setting up a listing on RetreatFinder not only incredibly easy, but a pleasure.
