Staff very friendly and helpful. It’s a bit off the beaten path which makes it more of an adventure. We stayed in a large tent overlooking the river … very scenic and relaxing location. Was fun to cook up steaks and dine at the tent. Really enjoyed it, will stay again.

10/10 Exceptional

Amazing experience! The staff was so friendly (we loved Kat!) and helpful. We felt like family from the minute we arrived. The grounds are gorgeous! We saw so much wildlife (various birds, deer, armadillos, etc), enjoyed laying in the hammock area, watched the sunset on our deck, layed and watched the stars from our tent. Just all around incredible experience. There is so much to do on the property you don’t need to leave unless you want to venture out. The gift shop is stocked with local items (and local beer!) The cabins have everything you need, I was skeptical of the AC in the tent but it worked GREAT. Cannot wait to go back in the fall when the river is higher.
