Closing one dream …

Moving on to another!

After almost 16 years in business, we have made the difficult decision to close Woodrose Winery.  We have had the opportunity to meet and serve so many wonderful people. Many of our regular customers have become friends. That is and will always be our most cherished part of starting the winery and growing it over the years.

A couple of years ago Linda and I started construction on our next dream, the retreat.  Our goals are still the same … Sit, Relax and Enjoy! We want our guests to experience what a few days at the retreat can do for the soul. Hopefully it can help calm a crazy life, let you experience and “hear” the peace and quiet of nature, allow you to immerse yourself in the beauty of the sunsets, enjoy the song of the birds, wonder at the twinkling of the stars … and carry that back to the rest of your life!

The Winery has been a chance to live out our dream and make hundreds of great friends.  It is an experience we will always cherish.  While we have truly enjoyed owning this winery, it became time to focus on the Retreat and make that dream a reality.

We plan to have the first cabin available in Q4 of 2021 with several more starting in 2022.  We also anticipate breaking ground on the small restaurant early in 2022 and target to open it by the end of the year. It will let us continue with our passions, stay in contact with the many great friends we’ve made over the years and hopefully add many more friends in the years to come.

While we have closed the Winery, we are not saying good-bye. We are simply closing one chapter in our lives, so we can start the next. Please follow us in the construction of our retreat, and when we’re ready – visit us again to say hello.

Thank you for all the support over the years.


Mike and Linda Guilette are passionate about making their new retreat a warm and relaxing experience.
