The vibe at Shamballa Cabin, eco-preserve
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at the Shamballa cabin. We wanted a getaway that was quiet, immersed in the forest, comfortable and had access to wifi if we needed it. The Shamballa ticked all of those boxes.
There are three cabins total, but we felt secluded and private. There is a clean outhouse as well as access to a flushing toilet and a hot shower at the main house which we appreciated.
The property is very peaceful, we were able to fully relax and felt safe and comfortable. The cabin was very spacious and it stayed cool, which was wonderful in the middle of July. I imagine it being warm and cozy in the winter time. The bed was super comfortable which is a great bonus! The Shamballa is still under some construction, but that didn't have a negative effect on us at all, it will be even nicer and more spacious once completed.
We definitely plan on returning for a forest retreat again soon. Thank you Adam!
Wowww!!! This place is amazing. Adam was very helpful in finding the location and guided us in all possible ways. I will definitely visit this place again. Infact can keep this place as my weekend hang out.
