They make you feel welcome. A getaway close to the city, easy in and out. Pick and eat fresh organic strawberries in land that has been that way for 20 years. Play with the animals that basically are your neighbors. Went with my kids (5 and 8) and father. They loved it.

What a beautiful venue! We loved the tipi and all of the accommodations that came with (potable water, grill & fire pit).

We had a great visit, staff was welcoming and friendly. The farm was beautiful and well maintained. It would be nice to have clearer instructions on parking to be sure our vehicles aren’t in the way.

A great place for the weekend escape...especially if you like farm animals, strawberry and the ocean that you can reach in about 30 mins by walking! :)
I would like to come back.

Thanks, Lori!

We loved our stay at the Tipi by the Sea! Such a beautiful and magical place. I went with my husband and 4yo daughter, who was beside herself with the access to all of the animals - she loved feeding the goats, bunnies, geese, and horse. We were even able to take the two goats on a walk, which was a trip highlight. Lori was very welcoming and invited us to enjoy the farm fully. The tipi is huge and was very comfortable with our camping blow up mattress and cot for our little one. We'd love to visit again!

We loved our brief stay at Crystal Bay Farm, and the tipi specifically. The tipi itself is massive, so you can fit multiple blowups, sleeping bags, or cots or probably an entire scout troop if you wanted. For us, the best part was the access we--and specifically our 3 year old--had to the animals. There are geese, chickens, goats (Bandit and Cocoa), rabbits, and a horse within a few steps of the tipi. If you or your kids are into feeding, petting, and generally enjoying animals then you'll love this place. We even took the goats for a walk, once Lori told us the trick (you have to take both at once, or Cocoa won't go). There's also a beautiful beach just down the road. We'd definitely recommend this spot!
