My partner and I were fortunate enough to be treated to a spectacular weekend at Plato Island Resort; sleeping in their “White Cloud” tent. Our booking included a two-night stay with breakfast and dinner.
Although we did expect a degree of comfort beyond a basic tent, we did not expect the degree of luxury offered by “White Cloud”.
A very spacious canvas tent the size of a small cabin, with an attached tiled bathroom, complete with hot shower. “Stunning” does not quite describe it.
From the loving decorations, to the super-comfortable mattress, replete with duvet and the stupendous lake view from the attached deck, “tent” is a complete misnomer.
The owners, Marita and Kyle, were most welcoming; Marita even going to the trouble of emailing us before arrival to inquire as to our meal wishes.
Marita’s cooking skills were such that we wished we could stay longer; if only for the delicious meals. Meal presentation ranked up there with high-end restaurants.
As the restaurant is not licensed, we brought our own wine. Works for us :)
We highly recommend a stay at Plato Island Resort and would definitely recommend "White Cloud" for those looking for the ultimate "tent" experience; without having to worry about setting up a tent and having to bring camping gear.
Thanks Marita and Kyle!
