It was a beautiful evening and morning, around 100 degrees at the height of the day, but the experience was incredibly awesome. The tubs at twilight and in the morning were a highlight! Pepper and her staff have created a beautiful, clean and amazing experience for glamping it. Love this place and will be back!

Pepper has thought of everything, including a little s'mores kit for the firepit and potpourri in the outhouse (you won't even mind that it's a Honeybucket, I swear). The bed was super-comfortable, breakfast was fabulous, and I loved taking a luxurious hot shower under the stars (no worries: total privacy). My family LOVED staying here. It is a bit pricey ($245 for two, plus $50 each additional), but so worth it. We'll be back for sure.

My husband and I stayed at Cherrywood and loved the comfortable teepees. My favorite was spending time with the horses watching her niece and wrangler bring them up the hill to tack up for our ride. After all, these horses are all rescues in which Pepper has brought to her farm. Pepper is literally a lifesafter for these horses and everyone of them is a gem. They are quiet and fun to ride. We enjoyed our stay and plan to go back soon, The view is beautiful on a clear day of the orchards and Mount Adams.

A friend and I spent a couple of days in Zillah to visit wineries and stayed at Cherrywood. It was a fun and amazing experience to sleep in the teepees and shower under the open sky. The included breakfast was out of this world. I would definitely recommend this to anyone heading in that direction.

The Tepee's were more then we expected, very comfortable. Pepper and her family and wranglers are so welcoming. We took the horseback ride and spent one night. What a peaceful, wonderful experience we all had, I would recommend this to everyone. We do plan to go back. Such a delightful place and a great experience. Pepper is an excellent host and chef. Everyone there was pretty special.

I don't know how I stumbled across this place online but I am so happy I did! My boyfriend and I recently stayed one night (not long enough) in one of the very cool teepees and braved the horseback wine tour in the unseasonably hot sun. The owner, Pepper is friendly, sincere, and takes great care of her guests. Not to mention an amazing chef. If you are looking for a one of a kind getaway that none of your friends are talking about yet, this is the place to go.

Where to start?! Pepper and her family are so warm and hospitable! From our horse back wine tour to our private table set up for the next morning's breakfast- every detail was thought of! Even sprigs of rosemary and fresh flowers adorned our table. We ended up chatting with Pepper and her family for a bit in their living room before we made our departure... my husband even grabbed a few more fresh donuts out of the fryer, courtesy of Pepper's daughter. We can't wait to go back- it's not often you can sleep IN a teepee!!! Thanks again for a great time!

What a perfect place to stay. You cannot go anywhere and meet anyone as special as Pepper; she treated us like family. We stayed in the teepees, which are just as comfortable as any room and perfectly decorated. How can you better enjoy the beautiful wine country than on horseback, and a great picnic lunch to boot - what fun. Breakfast was outstanding as was the entire exprience. I can't wait to visit again. Thanks Pepper!
