This place is true gem! Great place to rest and restore. The outdoor kitchen is beautifully laid out fully appointed. I relaxed in the lounge a good portion of the day. Took a nap in the hammock. My wife and daughter commented the outhouse is the BEST the have ever experienced in outdoor camping. Directions and the instructions were detailed and helpful. We will definitely return if available.

This place is exceptional! Hard to believe we were only an hour from home yet felt like we were way back in the sticks! Darren and Sarah have put a lot of thought into what they've done on Straus Mountain. Part camping, part glamping. Didn't really know what to expect, but must say we were blown away and can't wait to go back!

The Straus’s have created a lovely, easy, clean and cozy place to get out town and into nature. Bring your tent and food- they have the rest. Seriously, a FULL kitchen in what feels like the middle of nowhere! There is everything you need to prepare any meal- even an oven and electric juicer! This is a perfect spot for families, first time campers, or experienced outdoors people who don’t want to have to deal with preparing all your gear. There are hammocks and picnic tables and even an outdoor sectional. I know it books out quickly, and I understand why! We were lucky and happened to find two days after a cancellation! If you see an opening, grab it! You will not be disappointed!
Dubious perk- Cell reception is good, so if you want to unplug you have to be disciplined about it. Turn off your phones! We were even able to take work meetings on zoom!
We cannot wait to come back next season!

So cozy on the dining room floor. Puppy’s first campout. Sister showed her how it’s done! So cozy on the dining room floor. Puppy’s first campout. Sister showed her how it’s done!

Absolutely perfect! It’s apparent that they put a lot of thought into this property and enjoyed building it every step of the way. So many nooks and crannies to explore and lounge in. Very private and quiet. Rain came, which ended up being a joy to watch with the provided shelters. Couldn’t have asked for anything more. Thanks, for having us! We’re refreshed and recharged.

This site has everything promised and more. This is hands down the best campsite that I've ever stayed. The gracious hosts, Darren and Sarah, add little touches that make the stay more personal. But even without that the seclusion and amenities alone make this top notch. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely stay here again if the site is available.

It was beautiful, they had so many amenities and we didn't see another person the entire stay. The host were very thoughtful and the site was very clean and homey. They had so many spots to hang out and each spot was very well kept.
