Ok... lets get a few things straightened out right away. We've read a lot of reviews before booking this place.. and yes there are a lot of rants about it's shortcomings, but that I put down to people maybe not really realizing that these are essentially a few tents on a field in the middle of nowhere. Full Stop. So...

I LOVE the concept and you can make a stack of cash if you run it well, sadly that’s not what happened…. read on (sorry it’s long) Failure # 1 - Once there, the reception TeePee is on the right and you get 'checked in'. Here is where the issues arise a bit, while I am all for puling in...

My wife, brother and close friend spent a week in the middle of August 2016 here. We had a deluxe tent with a Tipi (for my brother and friend) and my wife and I had a suite. The views, tents and people were amazing. But don't expect hotel room comfort and perfect amenities. You can't drink the water from a...

Honestly, the accommodations were what we expected. The location was great and the tents were exactly what we were looking for. Unfortunately the people who work here are sub par at best. They told us upon arrival that there would be a hot chocolate bar that night for the kids which our 6 year old was very excited for. We...

Our family of 4 spent 2 nights glamping here. We had an adult tent and a tee pee for the kids. Everyone had a blast. It was quite chilly the first night (a surprise for late August), so the wood stove in the main tent was great and warmed us right up. The staff was very nice and informative about...

Overall good, but just too pricey for what it was. As a minor fact the firewood they provide was not dry enough so it burned with smoke making hard to breath in the tent, and parking lot was just too far from the tent to walk in the cold nights.

This is a very nice glamping site. The tents are spacious and comfortable, the beds are amazing (and big!). The tent had a stove so you could hear the tent for the evening if you wanted.
