Gypsy wagon
Peaceful and beautiful!! First off let me just say the wagon is like something off pinterest on the inside/outside . So cute and clean . The personal fire pit ( fireside table/2chairs) had pre placed sticks and along the wagon pre chopped wood. I wish I could post pictures of the beautiful moon lit fields next to the fire pit ! Just magical! Also there were horses that I could love on , goats , and of course watching wildlife with your coffee/meditations . I went here to have a "just mommy " weekend. Very relaxing and just what I needed. No electricity or running water (Verizon customer no cell service but other cell providers have service ). Nola is super chill and friendly ! If your looking for a cute little nook to get away at in a magical scenery.. book here. You won't be disappointed. Oh - I brought my doggie too ! He was well welcomed and of course he enjoyed it just as much ! Thank you Nola 😊

Gypsy wagon
Great place to get away!
I enjoyed camping in Nora's Gypsy Wagon! Nola is very inviting and thoughtful. The wagon does not have electricity, but multiple camp lights are provided. There is a table and chairs for eating, and two wood platforms for sleeping. There is storage space under the wood platforms. The platforms were too narrow for my twin mattress, but Nola already had air mattresses available in the wagon. I would only bring extra padding if you need something softer. Otherwise, the mattress was surprisingly comfortable. The outhouse was clean and well stocked. It was so peaceful on her farm. The only sound at night was the mooing of cows. A campfire ring and wood are also available. Great place to get away for some peace and quiet.
