Due to a change of plans we needed to move our one night reservation at the Treehouse by one day. We were told the Treehouse was booked and we were encouraged to book one of the tents at the same price. When we arrived, it was a struggle to find our designated tent due to very poor signage in the deep woods; we finally found the small marker hanging low behind tall grass. The tent was charming with a high fourposter bed. However, we both immediately noticed the sagging appearance of the bed and were dismayed to find that it totally sank in the middle, making a good night's rest impossible. In the morning we discovered our bed was actually a blow-up mattress, and not very well inflated at that. The restroom was quite a distance from the tent, in contrast with what the woman told us. We were given a key to unlock a box holding our coffeepot and found it dirty with the last guest's coffee grounds still in place. And there were no new filters included. If a breakfast basket was provided, we were unable to locate it, but at that point we just wanted to get away from a very disappointing experience. We also felt the $10 per person, per hour charge for use of the hot tub was an unnecessarily excessive charge. We would never stay here again.
