As an avid camper I’m used to bringing everything and then some and this was a nice surprise. Took my daughter for a graduation trip and we LOVED it!! My favorite part of the trip were the hammocks. So relaxing for reading, viewing the gorgeous forest, charcuterie and wine, and a game of gin rummy. Loved the Blackstone griddle, and all the solar lights and lanterns. The best was arriving and it’s all set up. Definitely planning two more trips in September and October when the leaves change colors. Thanks for an awesome trip.

This was our first glamping experience outside of cabins. Shantel did an amazing job by really thinking through every detail of what is required of guest at camping. My wife and kids all enjoyed this experience thoroughly of living in the wild and enjoying the camping experience without breaking our backs of sleeping on hard surfaces. She even went to an extent of getting us a jacket as I forgot to carry one for the cold nights.
