Shelterwood was an awesome, peaceful stay. The tent was beautiful, clean, and spacious, the king-sized bed was super comfortable, and had nice unexpected touches like a mirror, stylish accents, and luggage racks. Though the fire pit was removed due to high fire risk, I was pleasantly surprised to find a working sink and barbeque grill just for our tent, which made cooking easy. The porta-potty was also well maintained and clean. The property was quiet and peaceful, great for short hikes. The mini front porch of the tent was perfect for reading and hanging out. Of the various tents on the property, I found Acacia to be the most private, so it really felt like we were alone in the forest. Beautiful place to decompress!

David and Elise were excellent hosts. David was very prompt and responsive via email and text before the stay, and was understanding and flexible when we ran into scheduling hiccups, which he helped fix.

Upon arrival, David gave us a quick tour of the tent, and to our surprise, he noticed a rattlesnake 10 ft from us. He very calmly let us know about the situation without panicking, and handled it like a professional. He prioritized our safety and very politely suggested we go on a short walk while he took care of the rattlesnake, even being conscientious about our dog, making sure we were safe from harm. I was super impressed with how David handled the situation and reassured us of our safety throughout the process. I don't know what I would have done if we encountered the snake without David, but I'm extremely grateful he helped us in a big way. Elise was also extremely kind and warm when we ran into her on a hike. They were both incredibly hospitable and I would definitely love to book with them again. I highly recommend it!

Thank you, David & Elise!

Elise and David are great hosts. They were very responsive and when we got there they were very accomodating.

Shelterwood is a wonderful property. The camp area was very clean. I love that there is a grill and running water. It was very nice for first time campers like me and most of our group. I will definitely come back.
