Glamping at Dragonfly was the best experience! The tent is spacious and thoughtfully arranged, and the little touches made our stay, like the yoga mats, bath robes and picnic gear. The location is hard to beat, secluded by the river yet a short drive into town for supplies. Having access to kayaks for a paddle on the water was the best. Also the sun sets right opposite the tent! Anne Marie and John were kind and welcoming hosts and made our weekend! Thanks you two!

Thanks for sharing your experience at Dragonfly. Cheese platter on the mat in front of tent as the sun set, utilizing the river & your wisdom. Loved you enjoyed the property. We hope to see you back!
