Could be a beautiful property however none of the tents were maintained or cared for in anyway. Pictures are out of date so expect to be in a moldy tent so if you are asthmatic or have any respiratory issues please don't bother doing here. We unfortunately experienced a horrible thunderstorm and because of the rules about having a not having a car near the "camping" area (yes they will actually admit it is not a glamping experience once on the phone). So we were unable to move our belonging while the rain was coming down into our tent. What they also don't show on their site it that there is a very large hill you must climb down to get to the tipis We attempted to contact the number of the only individual we had seen on the property (Andrew) while we clean up our soaked belongings leaving multiple text messages and a voice message. We even attempted to go to the main house when not receiving a reply and knocked and waited. We went home since there was no one to talk to. As soon as we finally got a reply it was from a totally different person named Nicole whom immediately spoke down to us. She told us that we had no right to complain as she was the property manager and she had not received any complaints. Now we had sent multiple contacts to andrew who did not reply to redirect us to Nicole.
So to make the short and sweet. This establishment has no accountability towards it's customer as no staff was available in the morning to talk to us or check on their own infrastructure. The pictures are old and not updated to show damage and safety concerns. There is no way to make them accountable as their "property manager" whom is not present at all to customer unless by phone and her number is not sent with the rental rules.
So do not go here if you want to remain comfortable in wet weather conditions and do not try to attempt to find staff on the property in the morning as they just leave and are do not reply to you when you phone them. They expect you to sit in your car for unknown time frames if you want to hold them accountable. They do not have a disclaimer related to heavy rain or that it may enter their tents on their website. So if you want to make a complaint make sure you do it before you leave otherwise you get treated like garbage by a Nicole "property manager" whom does not want to attempt to treat you like a person.

We are 5* luxury travelers, so this was an 'adventure' for us to sleep in a TIPI! We loved everything about the experience. This is a hidden gem in an untouched part of Ontario. There are several Tipis on sight but they are well placed for privacy. It was an amazing experience to have a fire inside your sleeping area. You can cook over the fire and fall asleep to the cozy firelight. The owners provide all the bedding, towels cutlery plates and mugs. Surprisingly, they also provide breakfast the next morning. There is also a cedar hot tub and sauna on site for use. It was a great experience having to heat the hot tub by wood fire. I would HIGHLY recommend this as a family activity that will not be forgotten. Great memories forever will be made here.

Brought my girlfriend here for our 4th anniversary and she loved it.
Andrew was very thoughtful and provided us with everything we needed, including extra fire wood late in the evening.
Heavy duty sleeping bags provided allow anyone to stay here throughout the winter quite comfortably. We had our tipi open all night, as it can get a bit Smokey, and we weren’t cold at all despite temperatures dropping down to minus 4.
If you want an experience that allows you to escape back into nature, while simultaneously helping you grasp for a moment what you so often take for granted in the comforts of normal daily living in Canada, this is a wonderful way to achieve both.
Just bring extra wood :)

It was a rainy night When we got there and we had no idea what we’ll facing to. Warm sleeping bag and sound of the rain around made it quiet special night.
And in the morning woking up in nature with breath taking view was the most beautiful experience in new earth estate. The host was so helpful and kind and told us about the history about indian cultures.
It is comfortable place to stay if you are a nature fan.
