This was the best experience of my life. I definitely found myself here. You come in as a stranger, you leave as friends. I will definitely be going back.

We ended up not staying. After seeing our sleeping accomidations, i got in my car and never looked back. I wasted $55.00, but thats ok. This place was not for me.

Exceptional 10.0
We absolutely loved our stay there. The staff is awesome. And my kiddos loved helping with the chickens, learning to split wood. There is a lot to do there if you like nature. The paths are well marked and fairly easy to get around. And the rainfall shower is a game changer. If your looking for fancy hotel this isn’t for you. But it is such a neat experience if you can think out of the box. We hope to return soon. With a few more days to spend the next time.
