A little slice of heaven - that was what one of my neighboring ranchers called the place I live as we were chatting while he pulled me out of a ditch one winter morning. I couldn't have said it better myself.
This place is truly peaceful.
We have a beautiful 3 acres that back on to a 15+ acre lake and natural wetland, with a private dock. There is a woodland area that borders the property and runs along the lake with a path, peaceful nooks, and a secluded duck blind. There is open grass space and a fire pit + seating and picnic table near the lake.
You have your choice of two camper trailers. The Mallard sleeps 3-4, and The Terry can sleep up to 8. Both have fully functioning kitchens and washrooms. They are hooked up to solar charged batteries that will run all the basics inside (plug ins, heat, lights, radio, etc.).
We also have a generator available if you require use of the air conditioning or microwave; we provide 30L of gas for the generator, which used as needed will last 3-5 days, or more. Additional gas is available for an extra charge - current gas price plus 15%.
We have kayaks, a pedal boat, fresh horseshoe pits, ladder ball, bocce ball, a few board games: monopoly, scrabble, crib, connect four, and some art supplies: a couple of easels, canvasses, paints and other crafting fun!
If you like bird watching this is the spot for you! Many nest along the cattails, easily visible from the shore or the dock, and there are Bald Eagles, Great Horned Owls, and lots of Hawks in the area. We are happy to lend you our binoculars and bird book!
If you are more into relaxation, we also have a hot tub, infrared sauna, and inversion table on-site. Your host, Desirea Marie is also the founder of Forged Soulutions and would be honored to enhance your stay by scheduling you in for personal relaxation and transformation services. She provides Foundational and Restorative Yoga, Reiki Healing, Belief Re-patterning, and Relaxation Massage, starting at $49 for 30 minutes and with special package options for our HipCamp guests!
We also have a small flock of beautiful laying hens, a small greenhouse and garden, with fresh eggs, some herbs, vegetables and houseplants available for purchase - based on season and availability.
