We booked the entire property for our Elopement celebration with all of our friends and family and everyone had the best time! We had our family stay in the glamping tents (which are amazing and so comfortable!) and our friends all brought their own tents to set up around the property.
Adriane was so helpful and answered any questions we had very quickly!
We also booked an archery lesson right on the property for our group which everyone loved!
We also booked the optional generator which ran the fridge and lights around the property. Highly recommend if you book the entire property.
We brought our fishing poles and caught two 12” bass and a bunch of really tiny fish that I think were bluegill.
Our guests also loved taking the boats on the pond, watching the horses run around the property, and our surprise guest Stormy who was a bottle fed cow that pretty much thinks he’s a dog. Everyone had a great time! I would highly recommend booking this property for any special family get togethers/celebrations.

Great stay for our group! We loved the whole property. It was great to have the super nice glamping tents (with real beds!) for the folks that didn’t want to fully camp. There was also rv parking which was great. Hosts were wonderful and helpful. Loved that there was a dance floor as we danced all night!

Our group had the BEST time renting this entire property for the weekend! It was such an oasis, and it was worth it for the group of 18 of us to be able to spread out and overtake the communal kitchen and the property at large without being discourteous to other campers. The glamping tents are incredibly cute, with unique features in each. Mattresses were amazingly comfortable as well! The bathrooms were kept sparkling clean and stocked, and didn't smell at all which was a pleasant surprise. The showers were also wonderful as our stay was a bit chilly! Ethan and Adriane were wonderful, accommodating, and responded to all of our needs (ice and firewood) quickly and efficiently. We loved the dance floor lights, the pond, the little boats, and the spacious kitchen! One thing to bear in mind is that the geese wake up EARLY and enthusiastically, so I'd recommend bringing some good earplugs. Otherwise, can't rave about this any more highly!
