What Retreat Central Members are Saying
“Keep up the good work. We love sharing and connecting with those who find us on Retreat Central. Capon Springs won the “Best Social Media Campaign” at the WV Governor’s Conference on Tourism as a result of how we promoted and won the Retreat Central Best Pool Contest. We competed against much larger organizations with far greater budgets. Retreat Central gives the “little guy” a chance to shine.”
