If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
We had a great time at the Tipi! Bruce was great. He gave us a tour of the grounds when we arrived and even let us borrow some fishing poles for our stay. The lake is a short drive and lots of wineries in the area to choose from. Keep in mind the tipi is open at the top so plan accordingly for bugs and rain. There is a rain catcher that does a good job but if you experience heavy rains you would need to sleep in the trailer. All in all we enjoyed our experience and would definitely return!
Bruce, his land, and his set up was great. Very rustic and so unique-- our family of four LOVED the tipi... And the open air, outdoor shower was a HIT for the kids, too!
One thought to consider-- moms, Mr. Bruce has VERY neat, old, and fragile decor, especially in the tipi. Prepare to hide/put away, as I did not,and had I hid things away, it would have made the beginning of the trip a little easier😁
Mosquitoes is bad
The environment is not bad, but not suitable for summer. We made an appointment for two nights, but there were too many mosquitoes, which caused us to stay for only one day and then leave. Because we can't sleep well. We used several anti-mosquito liquids to repel mosquitoes, but we still got bitten badly. It is more suitable for traveling in spring and autumn. The use time after fully charged is also too short, which is another problem.
Wonderful, unique experience
This is a unique camping experience with so much charm and all the amenities you need. Our family LOVED it and will definitely be back! Bruce was a very accommodating host.
Unique and peaceful glamping!
My husband and 2 children (4.5/2.5) recently stayed 2 nights in the tipi/camper. We had the best time and truly enjoyed our time, in this unique and special place. Bruce is an amazing and gracious host, they have truly thought of everything. It has all the privacy of back wood, rustic camping feel with a few upgrades! It was peaceful and quiet, we really felt like we were able to disconnect and relax. We also loved the location it was nice and quiet but a nice easy drive into St. Joseph. We would highly recommend if anyone is looking to get away and just disconnect and enjoy being outside. We will definitely be returning!
Great unique setup!! We traveled with multiple families and this setup was perfect to have family time and a bit of our own space. Great location and quick access to local beaches (Hagar) and close enough to bigger places (Warren dunes, st Joseph’s, etc). Perfect if traveling with kids! Would definitely recommend.
