It was a great place to destress. A perfect location in the middle of gorgeous natural surroundings. Kyle and everyone else we met during our one night stay were very welcoming 👍🏼

Garth, Kyle, and friends were so welcoming! Boulder Gardens is a magical place. This sacred land has beauty everywhere you turn. We loved the bell tent and can’t wait to go back again!

I have stayed at the Boulder Gardens twice now and plan to go back many more times. The property is not only naturally beautiful but is also clearly a special place. Kyle is an awesome and welcoming host and I really can't say enough good things about my experiences here!!

Such a beautiful and magical place. Kyle, Garth and all his friends were awesome. Pictures do not do justice for the camp site. Garth’s Boulder Garden is clean, very nicely manicured, with amazing views and places to chill and cool down. There are spots to make new friends and hang out but the actual 18’ Bell tent was very private. Overall the vibe was great and I will definitely be looking to book this spot again in the future.

Beautiful location and great host! They’ve kept up this site so well, it felt very homey and cozy. We were missing some supplies for cooking and the host kindly helped provide some for us so we were able to make our meal :) the inside of the teepee was warm and lots of fun to hang out in. There’s a whole kind of community around this location, including crystal gardens, community kitchens, drumming sessions, etc. would highly recommend!

We stayed in the bell tent and loved it. There is a beautiful wood deck off to the side perfect for yoga and lying around. The bell tent is private as it is off the road a ways but there are still people milling about the property who pass by. The sky views at night are amazing.

We rented out an rv space, the yoga deck, the bell tent, and the cosmic castle for a weekend women’s retreat. We enjoyed the entire place. We donated extra money to have the sauna heated up for us and we took advantage of the cold plunge pool. Prepare for lots of walking- this place is huge! So much to offer, so much to see!

Beautiful place! The Bell Tent was more private than we had expected. Kyle even set up the communal fire pit for us, which is maybe two minutes walking distance away. Climbing the boulders on Garth’s property for both sunset and sunrise was absolutely gorgeous.
