The vibe at Glamping in the oaks Horseshoe Farm
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
A group of 5 adults, 1 child, and a big dog glamped it up in the private yurt and fenced camping area on the ranch. As the pictures show, the camping area is in a fully fenced space with 6' fences circling the area. The yurt was a cute and comfortable as the pics make it out to be.
The fenced camping area includes power to plug things in, a table\chairs, and cute potted and planted plants. There is a nicely built private composting toliet in the fenced area area which is a little odd that its so close to the tent (max 4 feet behind it), but nice that its included. There is also a really well stocked outdoor kitchen complete with fridge, water spigot, dishes, shelving, dish clean up area, trash, etc. It was clean and well stocked with drinking water and soap when we arrived. I should note there was a flushing toilet a tiny walk from the fenced area. We just used that the whole time.
We pitched one other tent in the space and hung our own shade. It was pretty sunny in there. But we enjoyed our time making a couple meals while hanging out.
The fenced-in aspect was a bit odd. It would be nice if one side was lower or openable so you could stare out at the beautiful surroundings if even just to one side. But it was fine once we were in and settled and at night it made no difference.
The rest of the ranch definitely feels like someones property. We never felt like we were intruding while walking around, but the house, an RV with a care taker, a building under construction were all there. So if you're looking to be distant out in nature, this isn't that spot, its a living ranch with some nice little areas for guest campers to enjoy. One of our guests was a little uncomfortable that it felt like "someone's backyard", but by the end, they didn't mind and liked the experience.
We enjoyed a trampoline and little kids zip line that was there, too, as well as a sweet dog and the quiet of the night.
The owner wasn't in town the weekend we were there, but she had a nice caretaker who was attentive and great. It sounds like when the owner is around (and typically is) she has some really nice add-ons to the experience.
And it was sooo easy to find somewhere to hang out all day by the water, even on July 4th weekend. We went to Blue Lake one day and pulled off the highway and found a sweet, empty spot on the river another day. That was definitely a bonus about this spot.
All in all, I'd recommend this space. The yurt was so easy and well done. You could come in with just clothes and some food and camp more comfortably then you'd imagine.
We came to Tina’s place almost at dark, the children immediately started playing on the giant trampoline , the rope swing and the old small zip line, and we found our tent, which was clean and welcoming, and would fit best for a couple with one or two children. Outside the tent we had a nice outside kitchen (not communal), a well treated composte toilet and a table with chairs. The sky were beautiful, Tina was nice and welcoming, and we slept well in the tent on real matrasses :) One minute walk from our tent we found a flush toilet and showers. On the morning, the campsite was totally shaded until 10 AM.
after a good breakfast we made on the outside kitchen , we went to clear lake ( a 15 min drive) and enjoyed so much :) I would definitely recommend!
