We loved the site! It was a beautiful piece of property with a lot of nature to offer. The only thing which was not major but slightly off-putting was there is a road adjacent to the site which is pretty loud, other than that you feel very secluded! We had a wonderful time.
What a great little spot! We loved staying here and really appreciated all the amenities - especially the shower and bathroom.
Great location that is super close to downtown. Host is wonderful and you will love your stay here.
Fabulous hosts Charlie and Jain. They could not be more warm and welcoming. Felt like family right away. The site is on acreage and well thought out with guests in mind. The only downside is the noisy highway adjacent to the 6 acre property. However, with no one around to disturb, we just cranked up the stereo or television and enjoyed!! We will definitely return for another getaway week of solitude in the future. Thanks again to Charlie and Jain for their wonderful hospitality.
Safe family getaway
We had a wonderful time. There was lots of space to relax and play. While there is a busy road nearby, it did not impact our stay. Everything is clean and well kept. It was a great getaway for our family and we will likely return again. Charles, thank you for sharing your property with us.
Awesome campsite with complete privacy. Host provided wood for campfires. Large piece of property with a fence so your dogs can’t go in the road. The outdoor bathroom is the cutest thing I’ve ever seen and very clean!! Several springs and wetlands close by to explore. Would definitely come back.
Fantastic campsite that is enclosed with fencing to keep the dogs off the road. Complete privacy. Owner provided wood for a campfire. The cutest outdoor bathroom I’ve ever seen.
Several springs and wetlands nearby to visit.
Great place to stay will be back
Great little site with all the things you need power water sewer.
close to downtown main Street less than 10 minutes.
Outdoor shower and bathroom very close to the site that are tastefully done.
Yes there's road noise but it did not affect the trip.
Very private spot
It was a nice and private place with a hot water shower and nice bathroom. Next time we will set up camp farther back to be away from the road traffic noise. Easy check in and Charles was very responsive to my texts. The gps link from the site gave a range of addresses and not his exact address. But he immediately responded to our texts and we found the place easily!
