My son & I made the trip for a concert July20. We were so excited at the idea of sleeping in a yurt, and figured that for almost $400 US we were in for a treat. WRONG! While the concept is cool, the execution of this concept is poor. I nearly took out the bottom of my car trying to park by Yurt 13. The path to the yurt was uneven. The yurt itself was ok, dull, brown curtains with holes in them, bed skirt that was dragging on some spots, uneven all 'round(ok big deal? Poor presentation) shower curtain that did nothing to keep the water in, one little bar of soap, one shampoo & some lotionl...thats it...no bathmat to catch all the water running everywhere, single ply toilet paper (again big deal? For the price , yes!) fan that sounded like a jet engine...weird plywood counter in "kitchen area" ,blind on door had to be rolled up manually as the spring mechanism was long gone. AS mentioned in another review, paths all over are poorly marked.
Reception was fine, map of grounds needs some work, why not mark the path to the concert venue so we don't have to keep asking? Dining room...I had a reservation, we were seated and then we sat...and sat...and sat while wait staff went around almost avoiding making eye contact. were we not dressed well enough?? It was 37 degrees outside, at least a glass of water would have helped. I FINALLY flagged someone down after 1o, yes 10 minutes, got some water & then we got some attention. Meal was ok...dessert was lavender cheesecake that cost $12,as much as one of the lunch entrees...really????? So was i impressed? not really, room is very noisy, service was good once we actually got some.
Path to the concert needs to be better marked and some low level lighting would be nice, was a bit scary trying to get home, luckily my son had a flashlight on his phone.
Back to the uneven ground...as I was very carefully backing my car out to leave, someone not far from us was not so lucky and hit a main water valve causing a huge "geyser" shooting 20 ft in the air, which I am sure resulted in no water for the place for the day. If pipes are that exposed, perhaps this needs to be re-thought.
All in all, this place has HUGE potential, but for the money I was really disappointed. The only upside is I was able to park my car & walk to the concert & not have to deal with the rodeo I saw of everyone trying to leave after the show. Was that convenience worth $400? I just wish the yurt was a little nicer, at least no holes in the curtains etc. I would consider coming back but would certainly mention when I re-booked that I was expecting a bit more the next time. If it were not for the air conditioner, we would have fried in the yurt & would have heard all the noise from our neighbours.
I hope the owners take all of the comments on this site into consideration...we all seem to be saying the same thing.
