Yurt#1 walnut hill
The yurt was very spacious, clean and had enough amenities to keep you going for a couples days. The outside pavilion was perfect for the sunny days. Loved that there was a fire pit to roast s’mores at night. The ice machine was temperamental which was a little rough to keep things cold. The privacy was a little hindered as there were people in and out checking in things. But overall I would stay again as it was clean and mostly peaceful for a few days away.
Big yurt- big time!
Lakeside Retreats was the most amazing campsite I have ever been to- tucked away only 20 min outside of Raleigh. Tom was incredible to work with - we had a large group and he was more than accommodating. The bathrooms were clean and the pathways were well marked. Easy to get around the lake and we had so much fun jumping on the boats and paddling around. Go hiking next door at the TLC trails! An amazing getaway- we will be back!
The Yurts were so cute and comfortable. Loved the little kitchens and the beds were super comfortable. Glamping at it's finest. We loved it!
The perfect get away close to home
Tom and his son were great host. Tom came and checked on me a few times to make sure everything was ok. The Yurt was impressive and more than I expected. Accommodation were perfect. When you rent Yurt 1 it’s like having your own shower, your own ice machine, sink, bathroom and sauna. Everything is right there outside your door. I forgot to mention the fire pit, grill and fishing dock are all there on our site away from the other sights. There is an RV hook up and I believe another tent site there behind the yurt which you would be possibly sharing the above mentioned but no one was there. I hate sharing all the positive because it was already hard to book since they have it on a couple of different websites. If my 6 year old son was writing this review he would share how much he loved fishing on the dock and the freebie golf course and the s’mores and of course he thinks all these things are part of camping now.

Great place for an escape. We had clear skies and cold temperatures (lows below freezing) and a full moon, and the yurt was just ideal. Beautiful spot and a nicely appointed, clean, and spacious yurt, and even worked well for our toddler after some adjustments to make it safe. Went midweek and had the place mostly to ourselves, a nice treat.
This is my new happy place.
Wow. Just...wow. I am so very pleased with our stay! What a gorgeous spot with kind, generous, down to earth hosts! The fact that I was far enough away from others to feel secluded, the freedom to explore the grounds at my leisure, the ability to fish, swim (me and the pups) and still enjoy the ability to get WiFi if needed. Take an outdoor shower, poo in the great outdoors, the cool (and not smelly!) incinerator, the lovely decorations, the ability to bring my pups. I would come back here a hundred times over!
