Camping here was like spending a weekend inside of a story book, we hope to return for another visit in the future! Our hosts, Liz and Curtis, were incredibly welcoming. They went above and beyond to make sure our stay was comfortable, and fun. They made sure we had all that we needed, encouraged us to freely explore their land, and gave us recommendations of where to go if we wanted dinner in town. The bell tent was well lit with lovely string lights, battery powered candles (all of the ambiance, none of the worry) and a lantern, which made the space feel even more magical at sundown. There were rugs to make the floor of the tent more cozy, wooden crates on either side of the bed to act as nightstands, and a vase of fresh flowers as well. The bed inside the tent was insanely comfortable and the bedding was so soft. There was a breathtaking view of the stars at night, and in the morning we were woken up by roosters crowing and birds chirping, the perfect cue to get the coffee brewing. A gas stove, table, and camp chairs made the perfect spot to have breakfast and listen to the animals. We saw so many colorful birds (I want to say goldfinches, but I'm no expert!) that were diving in and out of the marsh grasses, it was a fun morning show! After the previous day of playing with all the chickens, goats, and sheep that live on the property, and exploring vibrant gardens that looked unreal they so full of color, it was hard to pack up and leave. I can't say enough good things, or recommend this place more highly! :)
We were traveling with our four-year-old to St. Cloud for a wedding and thought it would be more memorable to camp on an organic farm than stay in a standard hotel. Our hosts were extremely welcoming and bent over backwards to help us make it work, accommodating our late check-in, allowing us the use of the farmworker's bathroom to shower before the wedding, and setting up the sweetest little bed for our son. (He immediately claimed it and played at sleeping in it, but in the end slept between us on the comfy queen-sized bed. That was fine--there was plenty of room!). The bell-tent was beautifully decorated, and our hosts had been considerate enough to set up a shade tent next to it with three chairs, a table, and a cook-stove (especially welcome since we'd come with no bug repellant!). The tent was situated on a little rise a short walk from the main farmhouse, which was hidden by trees. It felt very private, and it was lovely to be able to sit there at night surrounded by fireflies listening to the frogs. Mornings were a symphony of bird songs--plus roosters and the occasional goat. We had limited time or I would have loved to talk with our hosts longer about their experience as organic farmers. They seem like a great couple and I highly recommend the place.
Perfect in every way!
It was PERFECT! Elizabeth has thought of everything. The yurt was comfortable, pristine, beautifully decorated and very spacious! My 5 yr old was running around in there!
The site was quite private and we were surrounded by natural beauty. Within a short walk was the farm with all the animals - goats, chicken, peacocks (really!!) and a lovely organic garden! They have pigs, angora goats and sheep on another farm nearby as well!
Every convenience you can think of was thought out - from solar lights marking our path at dusk to remote controlled candles, to all cookware and dinnerware in a separate netted tent, to 2 propane burners and water tank to chopped firewood with lighter and kindling - all we did was show up! The bed and chairs in the yurt were very comfortable and she even made a little bed for my kiddo! There is also a flush toilet and warm water shower in an outhouse.
It was a perfect camping experience for our 5 yr old without all the work! The fireflies put on a beautiful show for us and the night sky was lit up with stars!
Elizabeth and Curtis are wonderful hosts. Elizabeth made sure we were comfortable in every way - when it was chillier one night she got extra blankets over. She spent so much time with us on a tour of the farm and animals - they are just good people!!
The best part was eating right off the farm! We got eggs from them - the freshest tastiest eggs I have ever had! We are planning to go back and make more beautiful memories!
Whether you just want to have a fun camping experience without all the hassle or enjoy your first camping experience with a young child - this is the perfect spot. Support the organic farmer and make wonderful memories in return!!
We enjoyed staying at the farm! The tent area was separate from the farm for privacy, but close enough for a few minute walk to use the restrooms and visit the animals. Our three-year-old loved the chickens and goats. We purchased some fresh eggs and goat milk to use in our breakfast, and they were delicious! The site came equipped with a separate screened tent with stove and table. It rained half the weekend, and thankfully we were close enough to a larger city (St. Cloud) to take a day trip until it dried up. Bring swimsuits and take a stop at Warner Lake County Park while you’re there. It was a fun time!
Girls weekend adventure , 3... 50 to 60 year old city girls wanted an adventure for a birthday celebration. We found it! Glamping. Tenting, not too far North of the cities. We were in with the Roosters, goats and ducks. Heads up, the bugs can really cut your fun, the distance to the "facilities" was a bit further than we planned and hauling "way too much gear" was a real workout. all in all we had a blast.
Amazing camping experience
We had a great stay and very good camping experience. Though it rained cats and dogs with all night thunderstorms, the tent was rock solid. Beth and Curtis Were very friendly and received great hospitality. We would love to come back.
Great little farm, wonderful produce for purchase. Perfect for a night or two away from the big city. Experience was as expected, but we would have loved more opportunity to get involved with farmwork though, we kind of felt in the way.
Beautiful weekend getaway
We booked a stay for our first wedding anniversary. Liz and Curtis were super friendly and accommodating, and our tour of the farm did not disappoint and should not be skipped if you have the time. Not only did we have the opportunity to cuddle some fluffy baby goats, but we got to help a newborn goat nurse for the first time - an experience we’ll never forget. The tent was lovely and spacious, and the bed was comfortable and warm when temps got colder at night. It rained and stormed a lot during our stay, but the tent held up and we stayed dry. They have a screen shelter and stove with utensils, which made cooking easy in all conditions. We loved learning about their experience and background as farmers and would love to book a site again in the future.
We will return...
Magical Neverland with goats! Do not bring cellphone, do not tell anyone were you are, and do not worry about what you will do.
Do come in early, watch the stars, pet the goats, breathe the air, buy fresh eggs or ask for "this morning"! eggs for breakfast - and spend time with each other- alone- in the magic tent.
Place is clean, and just like pictured. Owners are nice people.
