"The BEST BEST BEST retreat.....life altering" Andrea C. - New York
"I stayed at Turquoise Barn a few years back and it was wonderful. I liked it so much and learned so much about healthy eating that I brought Michelle to my home in Florida to host several days of instruction and parties for my friends! .......... I just wish I could come more often!" Joanne M. Florida
"Went on a botanical retreat at the Turquoise Barn and it was amazing! The property is beautiful, the food was incredible and Michelle is a perfect host. We learned so much and already can't wait to go back!" ~ Amy L. - New Jersey
I have been there twice and I have enjoyed it both timed beyond my expectations! Michelle is excellent as a hostess and her knowledge is vast and she's willing to share it. My perfect place to find balance when the hustle and bustle of city life gets to me, can't wait to go back!!!! ~ Nancy Z. - Brooklyn, NY
"Michelle Premura makes exquisite raw-food vegetarian breakfasts for her guests: oats in homemade brazil-nut milk, sprinkled with Tahitian vanilla, peppery nasturtium flowers...... This barn is a haven of dark woods and yoga-studio calm, wind chimes clinking and beautiful crimson amaranth growing just outside the window. I felt calmer just stepping through the door." ~ Conde Naste Traveler
