Friendly host, great location
I stayed here for one night, passing through on a road trip. The host was very friendly and the location is great. It’s about a 5 minute walk to a cute village with restaurants.
The property itself use to be a summer camp I assume. This cabin was super cute and clean. You do have to bring your own blankets and pillows (which I didn’t expect but didn’t read the post thoroughly). There are communal bathrooms and showers just a short walk up the hill (also did not expect). Hand sanitizer is in all the rooms. It would be nice to have hand sanitizer in the shower room for after showering (it’s communal), but I brought my own and I think it was fine. I’ll also add, I felt super safe walking around the grounds. It’s gated too.
All in all, good experience in a nice town.
One of my favorite camp spots!!!
We had such an amazing stay! The cabin, bathroom and showers are very clean. The campground is not crowded at all so we hardly ever ran into anyone. The hosts are very kind and welcoming. The hiking trails are so fun to walk in the morning and evening and the views are amazing. We were able to reserve the pool to ourselves and actually swim laps because it was a decent size pool. It’s walkable to town where they have lots of good food. This is a gem and we can’t wait to come back. Oh and it’s perfect for dogs especially if they like being off leash.
Wonderful camp experience
Our stay was wonderful and we will be back. The cabins are spread out at this old-timey camp. We brought a camp stove, but there were also Santa Maria style wood grills available for cooking. There is a small fridge available for your cabin if you need it. The bathrooms are big, clean and modern. This was great for our small family, but can't wait for Covid to be gone to invite all our friends for a bigger group reunion.
We had fun, but it wasn't perfect
I have mixed feelings about this place. First, the positive:
* The hosts were super friendly and helpful!
* The cabin was in great condition and very clean. The king size bed was very comfortable!
* The bathrooms were new and very nice.
* There were lots of showers, and no extra cost to use them.
* The pool was super clean and warm enough to swim even in October!
* Wood for the awesome fire pit was easy to get and affordable.
* The cabin had electricity and a small fridge! So awesome.
* There were lots and lots of birds!
The not so great:
The cabin was a sleeping cabin, with basically just beds. This is exactly what we expected, but the problem was that there weren't accommodations for the camping aspect that is necessary due to there being no kitchen or table inside.
There really needs to be a picnic table outside to make this workable. They provide a very tiny round table with an umbrella, but no chairs for the table. (We brought camping chairs that were way too low for this table.) And I think the table really isn't big enough for four people to dine around anyway. The chairs inside were velvety cloth which we didn't want to use for eating outside--plus there were only two.
A picnic table would allow everyone to sit to eat, plus give room for the camp stove and a place to prepare food. We were crouched on the ground using the camp stove, which was awkward.
The other main issue is that there is not a water spigot anywhere nearby, so getting water to wash dishes is an ordeal. You have to walk all the way to the bathroom which is down a mulch-covered embankment (no path), then up a long ramp. Carrying a bin of water that far is just not really do-able.
This camp seems to be a work in progress, and it's mostly dirt everywhere, with no landscaping. It's not super scenic, although looking up at the oak-covered hills is pretty nice. But the lot our cabin is on was dug into the hill by a dozer, and there is a 3-4 foot wall of dirt surrounding the cabin, with no retaining wall! It's not very appealing and it seems like in the rainy season the wall could come flooding down into the cabin. I hope not, though!
Overall, we had a fun time, but I wouldn't come back again!
