This was genuinely an awesome overall experience. I chose this place for my girlfriend and I in hopes it would be something we both needed away from the every day stresses of life. It not only met my expectations but exceeded them. Every one of the staff members brought something unique to the table that made the experience that much more special. From the moment we got there, we felt welcomed and like we fit right in. The gratitude circle and communal dinner were wonderful to partake in. The outside shower house was so relaxing. When we woke up in the morning we took a 15 minute meditative walk to the labyrinth before cooling off with a dip in the lagoon and even took the kayaks out for a minute. It was wonderful.

I went camping with my 4yr old, 1yr old, boyfriend and father in law. We had a ton of fun. The kids loved the frog pond, enjoyed the chickens. Loved the musical instruments that they had and all of the trails. The showers were to die for. Absolutely the coolest experience I've ever had. We 100% plan on returning again. Had a great time roughing it in the woods. All of the staff was great. Kim was awesome. Super friendly. Very informative. Had alot of fun

Wonderful little retreat hidden in the hillside. It feels like stepping into a community, with communal dinner and the general vibe. We had little kids with us and they enjoyed it too, with the lagoon swimming and outdoor showers.
