Tiny Cabin on Flower Farm!
Poor Hoat experience
I probably would have left a better review had the host, Dennis, not have given a snarky response when I asked about the flower mug. Since it was offered as an option that I could pay for, I assumed that meant the experience would be available. When I inquired about the experience, he said "You do realize it's only April so they flowers haven't bloomed yet & that's why the cabin was offered at a discounted rate." Well, since I'm not a flower expert, was offered & paid for the flower mug experience, & saw posts on their FB claiming the flowers were 3 weeks ahead; I guess I made an ignorant assumption. Guess the pictures on FB claiming the early bloom are old. Furthermore, he forgot to turn the water on & didn't respond for a few hours after I asked about it. He basically told me he just forgot. The light in the cabin was connected to a dead battery pack. I had a lantern & flashlight so I was fine but it just added to the realization that nothing was checked or prepared for me before my arrival. Because of how he responded I decided to end my stay a day early. Needless to say it was a disappointing way to spend my birthday weekend. He could have just responded politely & I would've accepted that I wrongly assumed there would be more flowers & turned the water on myself. I had planned on coming back with my kiddos when it was warmer, but I am sure there's plenty of other areas we would enjoy, without the demeaning response when a guest asks about the area.

Pitch tent on Flower Farm!
I spent my last night at the flower farm and it was a perfect way to end a long road trip. The property is super serene and had a wonderful view of the river valley below. I was pleasantly surprised at the comfortable bathroom setup and felt like I was in my own little flower world during my visit! Wish I had had more time to enjoy it all!

Tiny Cabin on Flower Farm!
The tiny cabin was exactly as advertised. Host was super helpful when we reached out. We picked a cold time to visit but do not regret it at all. We’d love to come back when it’s warmer and the flowers are blooming.

We loved camping on the flower farm! Forrest, our dog loved having so much space to explore and we loved stargazing each night! The views were gorgeous and we had so many close options for hiking each day! We definitely want to come back when the flowers bloom!

Cozy Cabin
We loved the cabin, flowers, and amenities! Even though it was chilly outside, the cabin provided a cozy getaway. Sign up for the mug of flowers too! I didn’t tell my partner I was getting them for us and he loved it.

This site was so beautiful! The view was wonderful and there was a little path through the flowers. The platforms and table were tucked into the woods and made it all really easy to set up and play games. We made dinner over the fire but they even offered a grill! I would definitely recommend this site
