The most conscientious host!!!
Sadly, due to the fire ravaging the area, we were not able to visit. However, I felt I needed to leave a review about Lori because she really went above and beyond during an emotionally devastating and highly stressfull time for her. We booked last minute, like the day before and Lori had already been evacuated by then so she had only spotty internet as she was literally fleeing a very intense fire yet she both called and messaged me right away to let me know it wasnt possible for me to come stay. She was so nice and unnecessarily concerned about both cancelling last minute and making sure I was able to get a refund that it almost brought me to tears. I assured her that i could wait or handle the refund process myself with HipCamp because she had enough on her plate with the fire. HipCamp was amazing with regard to the refund, quick and helpful, and while it was disappointing for us I absolutely plan to rebook my trip when possible. Thank you Lori and HipCamp for your stellar customer service and my thoughts and prayers are hoping that Lori is able to read this review while relaxing in her undamaged home. ❤❤
Super cool secluded refresh time
I’m hooked! The property is secluded and with lots of mature forest surrounding! The yurt was clean and cute. The bed was comfortable and the linens nice and fresh! We will definitely be returning for more and longer visits here!
My family and I stayed here for our first stay on a “unique stays” road trip, and it is going to be hard to beat! The yurt is situated in a peaceful wooded area, is clean and nicely decorated, and had everything we needed. We spent hours at the swimming hole down the road. Lori and Ken were very helpful, friendly hosts.
This place is a gem, book it!!
We stayed here for two nights- LOVED IT! The yurt was very comfortable and well designed. The surrounding forest was extremely relaxing and our two dogs loved wandering about. Also great swimming spots just down the road and the botanical area is worth seeing! Keith and Lori were amazing hosts. We would definitely come back and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a peaceful escape in nature.
A great place to rest and recharge
Peace and quiet. We fell asleep to the sounds of the night, so relaxing. Very private Yurt. Shower was very nice and the toilet was really good for this kind of camping. Kitchen had everything we needed to cook some nice meals. Yurt has electric so we brought a fan for sleeping but there was also one there. Lori did a great job at explaining how everything worked. She was accessible with a few questions we had and made some great recommendations for places to swim and cool down. Quincy is a wonderful mountain town. Craft Fair on the Saturday we were there, lots of shops, groceries, Quintopia Brewing! We had an awesome time. Thanks so much Lori, we are looking forward to returning!
Unique and relaxing forest stay
We enjoyed the butterfly yurt's secluded setting, serene view of the trees and stars through the skylight, and breakfast & yoga on the sunlit deck. The water heater worked well and the bed was very comfy and warm in the cool summer night.
