“We loved our stay. The firepit and hot tub were fantastic. We enjoyed a lovely bottle of wine down by the lake and found the glamping tent to be such a delightful feature that we have never seen anywhere else! We enjoyed a restful and peaceful getaway and the host was fantastic at communicating and really made our entire experience five stars from start to finish. Thanks for the s’mores — such a lovely touch!”
