I was so disappointed not to be able to stay at Mike and Stephany's tree farm. Their pictures and amenities were by far the best I found on my planned trip from north of Seattle to the Bay Area. Mike was prompt in welcoming me, responded happily to my request for personal directions in case Google gave odd ones (they didn't)

When illness prevented me from continuing on to their place, they were
wonderfully kind and understanding and invited me back another time. I will certainly do that.

When we arrived, Mike was waiting in his golf cart at the welcoming, festively decorated gate, that swung open to reveal a magically lit forest of old cedar trees. It was breathtaking, as we followed him through a tour to where we parked our camperized Sprinter van, past an almost complete bunkhouse, a charming outhouse, and firerings ablaze dotted throughout the property. The shared barn was stunning. I want to live there! Mike was so hospitable. He even told us to take fresh eggs home with us as we left. I would definitely go back and would love to stay in the loft in the barn.

Cathlynn and her husband were wonderful guests. Though they only stayed one night with us, they explored our property and took advantage of many of our farms amenities. We appreciate guests that utilize what we have to offer. Its never a burden. There was no trace left in their campsite.

We had a fantastic weekend at “ Family Camp!” The Carsner Tree Farm was perfect for our group ranging from 3 years old to 85 year young! Reserving the entire farm was ideal for our group from the loft in the barn, the cabin and the campsites! Thank you Mike and Stephanie for a memorable weekend and for the blackberries and cobbler! We can’t wait to come back next year for the “ Second Annual Family Camp!”
