Even better than pictured
I have to say the grounds and campsite are insanely beautiful. The amenities for the camp are really great as well. We were super comfortable, had access to a really nice grill and cooking area, and were able to transport our items to our tent easily. The photos are good but the space was ultimately even better than the pictures suggest.
Magical getaway in wine country
David and Elise have built an absolutely magical place that if you visit you will not want to leave. I have been wanting to book this spot for a year and it completely lived up to the expectations! First things first, the sheets and pillows make you feel like you are sleeping on a cloud and even on a chilly night we were so comfortable. The tents are also spotless and have all the accommodations you need at a glamping site and more... from a carafe and glasses if you are coming from wine country, a lantern for exploring at night, mosquito netting, water (technically potable but we drank it), bug spray, seating on the deck to enjoy the views, and firewood which we didn't use but it was nice to have it there if we wanted! They really have just thought of everything and are such amazing and thoughtful hosts with great attention to detail. Would definitely love to come back with just a friend or book a few tents together for a group outing. They also have river access and if we had more time would have loved to sit out by the river to read for a bit and enjoy the atmosphere.
We had a great experience at Shelterwood and would recommend it to anyone. The hosts were very responsive and answered all our questions quickly and thoroughly.
The amenities were very helpful and made things really easy. They had a propane grill with tools, extra cots, towels, and sleeping bags.
