Fantastic winter holiday stay

My wife, dog and I thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay at the Raven nest. The large wood burning stove really did a good job of keeping the tent decently warm during the chilly Winter weather, even when it was well below freezing. The tent was rather spacious and was very well appointed, and had more amenities than we expected. The thick air mattress was rather comfortable and very quickly pumped up if it needed a little air after a full nights use. The surrounding land was beautiful and so fun to explore; with brooks running strong. One of our best stays using Hipcamp, and a location that we really hope to return to soon!

Carolyn's place is an incredible escape! The yurt if very comfortable and stayed warm even in the cold (30 degree temp). They have it outfitted with all the safety equipment you might need, and are close by and accessible if any trouble would occur.
I would recommend arriving before dark as it is a short walk to the location.
Definitely the ideal place to spend a few days in nature.

Amazing! Carolyn’s property was a great escape. She provided everything we needed to get started, and the tent was so comfortable. The wood burning stove was great! I would recommend this place to anyone looking to get away!

Our stay at Raven’s nest was one to remember! It was beautiful and secluded, but with help not far away if needed. Carolyn was a great host and she made sure that the tent was warm upon arrival, which was greatly appreciated after our walk. Pack lightly to make the walk easier. We will hopefully be returning soon!

This is exactly what was needed. Out there but, close. My kind of close enough, you want something, drive at least 20-30 minutes. Be prepared! Did not want to leave!

This was an absolutely wonderful stay and Carolyn and her family were the best hosts you could ever hope for. When my girlfriend and i arrived Carolyn had already started a fire in the stove so the tent was warm and toasty for us. The tent was also furnished with so many helpful comforts (lamps, flashlights, matches, firewood, coffee and coffeemaker, books, games, water, smoke alarm, fire extinguisher, ice chest, etc.)

The space itself was comfortable and inviting. We loved lounging in the compfy chair and rocker while the fire crackled in the wood stove. The tent was spacious and we stayed warm the whole weekend despite below freezing temps and strong winds. In fact at times the stove was so good at keeping us warm we had to open the door and let some cool air in!

The outhouse was super clean and though it had a very open and spacious design (windows but no door) i felt completely secluded and private out in nature. We didnt use the picnic tables or fire pits since the weather was so brutally cold but you could tell Carolyn had put thought and care into its construction and placement.

The whole set up was quaint and secluded. I felt truly disconnected from my busy life and able to unwind and connect with nature. Although Carolyn lives close by we were far enough into the woods that we could neither see nor hear them. I love the feeling of solitude in nature and thats exactly what i got.

I have to commend Carolyn and her husband for going above and beyond to make our stay the absolute best it could be. Around 10pm on the second night i had trouble adding wood to the stove without causing smoke to billow out when i opened the hatch. I had no trouble keeping the fire going but the tent was getting unbearably smokey. We messaged Carolyn on the walkie talkie (which they also supplied) and Carolyn and her husband were there to help within minutes. Her husband showed me how to properly operate the stove and make sure all of the coals were racked to the front when i added wood. Presto! A blazing hot stove with no smoke. They were so kind and gracious about coming to help us and reassured us that we can contact them anytime during our stay if we needed help.

Overall we had a wonderful stay and I would absolutely recommend this to anyone. My only regret is that we couldnt stay longer.

This stay was awesome! We stayed on a chilly weekend, and the stove kept the tent and all our stuff from freezing! Picturesque walk in, easy to find with directions, and Carolyn provided hot water! It was wonderful & we can't wait to come back, definitely for more winter glamping!

We simply loved our stay. Lost in the nature, star gazing and birds in the morning. We just had hard time with the fire stove but Carolyn and Chris being very nice host, helped us alot. Would like to visit again for sure.

It is a beautiful location and the tent and grounds are well appointed with everything you would need. We brought a cart to help us tote our gear to the site and it proved to be super handy. The wood stove in the tent leaked smoke a bit. Over all it was beautiful and the hosts were great they even posted congratulations signs for our daughter who was graduating
