The tent was amazing...plenty of room and the I slept 10 hours in that bed! Fire pit was well stocked with plenty of newspaper and kindling for an epic fire. Kelly even ordered up a full moon. Can't wait to go back.

Super excellent spot! Friendly hostess and the air mattress in the yurt is more comfortable than my own bed at home. Will 100% stay there again down the road

A nice quiet wooded spot on the corner of Kelly's land. The tentsite was comfortable and as described, and the host was welcoming and communicative.
