Well organized short retreat, from ferry trip, lunch at Tacovista to the retreat. We had a cocktail class and made our own cocktails. Dinner with live music. Afterwards fun with smores on open flame fire pit. Next day, breakfast in bed. Totally fun!
Blown away by this experience. It was better than I expected. Glamping at it’s finest! We had a delicious dinner with a very large dinner menu, several cocktails and a nice wine selection. The tent is very comfortable, spacious, and private. We rented bikes and rode around the island. We would definitely come back!
A blissful escape. Booked an overnight stay midweek with a friend who had visited before and gave it rave reviews. It was as great as he said!! Beautiful setting, very comfy tents and staff was on point! Dinner in the restaurant also excellent. Plus— fireside s’mores. Will be back.
The lack of care and attention paid to acknowledging a special occasion return visit. I specifically asked for a Summit tent facing the water and lady liberty 🗽 so that we could enjoy our breakfast and work in peace on the deck of our tent, without being on display of the main lawn activity and main walking and bike path on the grounds. I requested Summit 5 or 1 well enough in advance but was given Summit 9 which was exactly what we did NOT want for our 2 night stay. To add insult to injury, the trash was full of filthy used feminine hygiene products in what was supposed to be a freshly prepared room. Our sense of welcome was immediately destroyed after a really long travel day arriving late evening to a tent that was not only what was not requested, but apparently not thoroughly cleaned. While we understand that special requests are not always able to be accommodated, the lack of care taken to accommodate us in the summit tent that we were provided for our 2night anniversary stay with filthy over flowing trash was unacceptable and really disappointing. Sage, the morning concierge was able to move us the next morning to the Summit 1 tent where we soon realized that our Shower and sink were not providing hot water at all, as well as the sink lever for the cold water being inoperative, making it impossible to have the warm shower, or a cold sink bath before our 7pm dinner reservation and long day of sweaty activities on the island. We really appreciated Nikki coming herself to assess the problem and realizing that it was an issue that only the maintenance person could handle. (There was NO maintenance person on site in the evening!) Again completely unacceptable for the level of service expected for what is supposed to be a “luxury camping” experience. The nightly rates remain the same from our first stay last year, but the level of accommodations has most certainly fell off. Making avid travelers like ourselves question the need for a repeat visit. We will make a final attempt next year because of the STAFF! Niko the Great! Thank you for your warm welcome and sunny disposition while helping us navigate a late night arrival after a long tiring travel day! Sage, your empathy and care taken with weary unnerved guests is the definition of what makes for excellent customer Service. Niki evening front desk manager thanks for stepping up and doing everything in your power to make a rough stay better. Honorable mentions to Gray the lean mean drink making machine of a bartender who makes a men cocktail and introduced us to alcoholic choices we likely would not have tried elsewhere. Benjamin who’s an integral part of the waitstaff but took the time out to chat with us and make sure that a friend visiting for a drink made it safely back to the ferry and home. Above and beyond! You guys all made the trip better and we look forward to seeing you again!…
We had such a great experience. The grounds are well laid out and beautiful. The tents are luxurious. The bathrooms are really nice. Staff is gracious. I don’t have a bad thing to say about this place. We are definitely going again. We might even go again before the season closes.
