No internet. Put the phone down and Reconnect with your family! Plenty of outdoor fun activities. This place is awesome. Super clean cabin. Bring your own food and they supply everything else. Oh and best coffee I’ve had in ages! Roasted right there!

We came with wife and teen kids for an escape from quarantined life in the bay. Stayed at the yurt. We have always wanted to stay in one. A yurt is nice compromise for myself and the wife. She is not so big into camping, but the kids and I love it. It was glamping at its best. The yurt location is across the street and can get a little bit noisy with cars driving by. But, you get used to it. The yurt was spacious and clean. The charcoal grill and picnic table was just like camping. But, without the hassle and with all the creature comforts. The wifi didn't reach the yurt and the cafe was closed during our stay. But, I brought plenty of food and drinks. I understand that they will be upgrading broadband access and the cafe will be opening up more soon. Lounging by the river. Swimming, fishing and sleeping on a hammock that I hung up on the river's edge was just what we needed. We also did a half day whitewater rafting run with Bigfoot rafting that was nextdoor. Great get away for anyone looking for nature and adventure.

My boys (3 and 6) had a blast. Our cottage was clean, welcoming and right on the river. The grounds are breathtaking. Water level was high, didn't catch any fish, but had a lot of fun trying. Highly recommend giving it a try. We will be back.

The strawhouse is wonderful. When I arrived ( after asking a receiving an early check in) I was told I got an upgrade to the best place on the property!! and it was...a spectacular river view. It was delightful to be there. The cottage was exactly as described...plenty of space, lovely outdoor area....
