What a lovely place to stay. Ben has equipped the place very well with coffee maker, French press, silverware, plates, mugs, and even a pot and pan. There is a mini fridge and microwave as well. We choose to do all our cooking at the fire pit with our own gear, but what a lovely option to have. Thank you! The bed was comfortable and having a flush toilet is a real plus. We will be adding this place to our rotation of glamping sites.

Damselfly at Streamside Retreat
This place was pure magic. The camper was thoughtfully appointed with a dreamy bed to sleep on. Seriously comfortable with fluffy soft linens. Even the bath towels were soft and fluffy. I loved having plenty of space to roam with my pups. A place to keep dry during the rain. It was even great to only have one bar of service most of the time. Can’t wait to come back!

Damselfly at Streamside Retreat
The camper was nicely renovated, definitely a glamping experience. Was very well stocked. The lighting on the inside is a little harsh as it's very bright white so really tried to avoid using the indoor lights in the evening. Obviously it's a vintage camper so there's going to be small critters on occasion. Pretty certain there was probably one that may have passed away inside the camper somewhere at some point, as there was a very particular smell by the kitchen. Every time we would open a kitchen drawer we could smell it, again it's camping life something you can't really avoid nor the fault of the owner. Enjoyed the little spring fed creek. It was a lot closer to the highway than we expected, as we could hear traffic and a railroad track that gets trains three times a day. Sunday the neighbor was target practicing with his rifle so kind of put a damper on the peacefulness a bit, but overall I would do it again. We were lucky that we had the little spot to ourselves, because they have another camper not too far away from this one. I don't think I would have enjoyed the spot as much if that one would have been taken at the same time. A little mishap during check-in, we were told we couldn't check in at our check-in time but it would be a half hour later, and the instructions we were sent were not the correct instructions. So when we got there we ended up at the wrong campsite and had to call to figure out where the correct one was with no signal.

Perfect Glamping Getaway
What a perfect spot for our quiet getaway! The tent set up was great and fully stocked (way more than expected) The property is beautiful and having a bathroom and outdoor shower was the cherry on top! We made a day trip to Traverse City and also a beach day to Ludington, the beach was beautiful. Thank you for the wonderful stay.

This place is stunning. The hosts were great and made sure we had everything we needed. We are looking to go back to this spot again, and maybe again and again :)
