On a short notice we rented out one of the Single Tents 2 days ago for one night as all other bigger options were occupied. The option on the website for one night was not possible so I thought I try my luck on the phone as we only had one night to go there. We came in at about 7 pm in the evening bought us a big mattress and sleeping bag at Target for just this one night (180 $). The weather wasnt perfect but our mood was flying high. At the checkin at the desk I saw the inviting pool and jacuzzi peaking through the window on the side of the mainlodge. As it was pretty cold at the time I had this great picture in my head checking out the pool on the next morning when the sun might be up. So I asked the reception if it was cool to use the pool round noon after breakfast. She told me we were not supposed to use the pool after our checkout at 11 am. I asked again and told her as we just arrived and the weather wasnt ideal it would be great if she could grant us checkin out the pool at noon and then leave. She insisted that those were the rools of Tree Bones. After spending 100 Dollars for 2 people on Sushi beeing served by a great waiter called Johnny we already spent 700 dollars considering everything we invested to come from LA to Treebones. We enjoyed the stay / view and food very much. The introduction for my sense of quality service lacked a bit of sensitivity. The next morning we had a great breakfast in the mainhall. Sitting near the fireplace we were suddenly part of a gathering of the staff in the mainlodge. The owner had a staffmeeting as far as we could tell. Just from hearing what was discussed I can tell how much love they put in everything. We left them to their privacy and went down to Sand Piper Beach and searched for some Jadestones. Thanks to Jesse and Johnny and everybody who gave us a great welcome even though we only had a small Tent ;) We will be back and hope to catch the a bigger Yurt next time.
