When I booked this trip to California six months ago, I was really apprehensive about the "tent" thing. I am not a camper. But this..... wow! I am so glad we did this! The yurts are really very nice inside with a polished wood floor and the most comfortable bed I ever slept in in my entire life. It was really very spacious and didn't feel like you were in anything less than a hotel room (except for the lack of a bathroom of course!). The grounds that Treebones is on is such a beautiful piece of earth. The green and wheat colored hills behind and the ocean right in front.. OMG, just beautiful!! Yeah, it was kind of a pain to get up (twice) in the middle of the night to pee but once I got back in that warm bed.... totally forgotten.
The second night we were there, they had a concert with Naked Soul, a group out of SanFran. They were incredible. It was a beautiful, wonderful, even surreal evening with the mountain clouds rolling past us.
I would stay here again in a heartbeat if I ever get the chance to come back to California and will definitely recommend to anyone I know that is going. This is an experience you just have to try!
