Glamping at its most real
Catherine and Ricks farm is incredible. It’s peaceful, well thought out, pristine and welcoming. It’s not too far off of the highway which makes it easy to come and go if you are into that but also when you are there feels like you are in the middle of nowhere.
River yurt with cargo hammock
We had a great trip. Laid back 93 acre farm with lots of animals and wildlife. Pigeon river full of fish and great swimming. Drive up to site for easy unpacking. Camping spots are very spread out. I can’t wait to go back. - Stewart
Best glamping spot
This spot is so beautiful sitting right on Pigeon river. We really enjoyed our time there as it was very peaceful and secluded. This is a great getaway spot to disconnect from your day-to-day route. The tent itself was pretty big with a large bed and gorgeous window view of the river. The deck was really nice too with a built-in floor net for stargazing, just be careful walking around at night. The hosts every very nice and quick to answer any questions we had. The property, a 95 acre farm, was fun to walk around on and explore different areas of the river, hills and farm animals. We highly recommend staying at this glamping spot, and we will definitely be back in the future!
We had an absolutely amazing time here! The spot was even more beautiful than the pictures! Catherine was so welcoming and accommodating throughout our entire stay. The bed was super comfy, and we had such a great time reading together in the hammock by the river. Definitely treat yourself and buy their sausages! This is the most wholesome, pure, and flavorful pork I have ever had, and they even provide a grill to cook it up on! I really can't say enough positive things about this place. I absolutely cannot wait to return!
