Consider sleeping in a Teepee if you want to keep it cheap and close to nature with the firepit and the great communal dining room/kitchen and bathroomw. We loved the nearby lake with canoe free for use and to cook at the big firepit with logs around to chat at night with other teepee campers if you wish, or the pizza oven when you are in a bigger group. Great atmosphere, very suitable for families with children and also for backpackers wanting to have a bit more luxury then the average tent or guesthouse. great place, highly recommended. Friendly hosts who will come around for a chat. We did not use any of the breakfast or dining service so cannot comment on that but had to fill in a rating!

I hate to share my feelings about this gem of a place my daughters and I found and fell in love with this summer as I don't want it to become over booked and hard to get my little piece of heaven each year. But I will share, because everyone has the right to know about this amazing little place! 5 stars!!!!
