Writing this review almost feels like a disservice due to the fact there are no words to accurately describe how amazing this little pocket of tranquility really is.

Simply put... The experience is phenomenal and I would 100% reccomend this to anyone- as a solo trip or as a family/group of friends. Truly unforgettable.

Thank you Sherry and Houston for making us feel welcomed and truly at home.

This was the perfect little getaway. So private but with so much space to spread out. The hosts Houston and Sherry were so kind to us, and the big dog Samson kept us company. Saw our first donkey dust bath. Will definitely be coming back.

What a wonderful getaway! Sherry & Houston are very kind hosts. They were responsive and attentive to our needs. The tent is very spacious and pleasant. The bed was quite comfortable, the heater provided a great night of sleep for a winter night, everything was clean and well thought of. The property is beautiful and fun. We hope to make it a family tradition - camping at Purdon Groves!

Purdon Groves was PHENOMENAL. I have an English Mastiff and I spent weeks trying to find a place that would allow us to bring him. Not only was Sherry happy about having him, but my dog had such a blast with her Great Pyrenees, Samson. The tent was so dreamy and beautiful. Sherry also sent us a big list of dog friendly places that we could go in town. I'm so grateful for this spot!! We'll definitely be back.

This was the coolest spot! We loved all the glamp-y amenities (fridge, heat, etc.) as we were passing through in the winter and didn’t have all of our camping gear. Sherry was super responsive and helpful and made sure we had everything we needed and more. The stars here were INCREDIBLE and we cooked dinner over the fire. In the morning we walked around the property to say hey to the donkeys and pigs and took in the peaceful scenery. Truly lovely— wish we could have stayed longer!

Amazing experience. Directions were clear. Tent was organized and clean. Hosts were very attentive and they thought of every little detail to make your glamping experience a wonderful one. We used rubber boots (it was raining) and there was plenty of space on the deck to remove mud before entering tent. Heater worked perfectly. Beds were very nice. Loved the donkeys, pigs, and the dog. My dogs really enjoyed playing in the surroundings. First night, it rained and we loved just listening to the sound of the rain and making puzzles. So relaxing. Just what we needed and more! Will definitely return in the spring.

We really enjoyed our stay! It was absolutely wonderful, the tent was beautiful and cosy, clean, well equipped with all basic facilities. outdoor toilet was also very clean and well lit!

Sherry and Houston are gracious hosts and super welcoming, it was lovely to meet them and talk to them about their farm and sustainable hydroponic farming gardens. Our 10 year old daughter and our dog also had a blast time on the farm tour with all the wonderful animals that reside on the property.

We highly recommend this place! We definitely plan to visit it more often.
