My friend and I had a wonderful time at this site! First and foremost, James was a super helpful and friendly host. James checked in with us before our arrival, met us upon arrival, and took time to show us around the beautiful space. In addition, the site was beautiful, serene, and private and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay, including a fire pit, picnic table, and a shelter. We also had a great time kayaking in the pond! We hope to be back soon.

James was a great host! He toured us around the grounds and was helpful in providing some guidance on the best trails for a jog the next morning. Overall, the space provided a great break from the city!

James was very accommodating and the site was beautiful. Even though the house and other campsites are within short distances it still felt very private. The lean-to retained a lot more heat than we were expecting as well, good for the colder months.

Due to weather we ended up staying in a cabin instead of the shelter but the property was GORGEOUS and James is extremely friendly and helpful! 10/10 would recommend!
