Dawn is great- she made Tess and I feel very at home. The location is beautiful and there is plenty to do on the property and surrounding areas.

Will definitely be staying here and recommending cool people her way.

Dawn was super nice and even helped us out with a flat tire after we left. Her site is extremely Neat and very thoughtful. She really invested a lot of thought into making it a comfortable and fun place. It had a nice kitchen, a warm shower and all the accessories to cook etc. Kids had fun and enjoyed the teepee with books, the chickens etc. Hopefully we will pass by this way again and stay there.

We enjoyed our stay. There was plenty of room for our tents and we used the fire pit for a relaxing evening. The pantry was a nice luxury to have and having the dishes, bowls, and flatware available made preparing meals easy. Dawn was welcoming and available to help with any issues.

Dawn was so kind and accommodating to us and the campsite had everything you could ask for! Chairs to hang out, an adorable camp kitchen with lots of local goodies, a charging station, and an amazing view of the stars at night. The goat and chickens wandering around were a fun addition too. I'll definitely be coming back the next time I'm in Bend!

There were so many thoughtful and helpful touches throughout the camp space. I had absolutely everything I needed within arms reach. This was the perfect place for me to set up an outdoor workspace (fully powered and with WiFi), cook, relax by the fire and clean up! The coffee and cook setup was fantastic. I loved the outdoor rugs to keep my gear clean and out of the dirt, and the outdoor shower was heaven. Best of all were Dawn’s animal friends who hung out with me while I puttered around camp. As a solo traveler I loved having her chickens, goats and little pup to hang out with. Dawn was so warm, welcoming and caring. She designed a beautiful, functional space and loved my stay.
