Guest review: “I can’t even express how awesome this tent is! My husband and I came for our anniversary in July. We were worried that it would be hot and uncomfortable, but the ac worked great. Our hosts were so friendly and greeted us upon arrival to give us some pointers. Denise is an attentive host and responds quickly to any question or request. We spent most of our time on the water and there are lots of toys you can use (kayaks, floats, fishing poles, etc.). The bathroom is one of a kind and you have to experience showering among the trees with the sounds of nature at least once in your life! Oh and did I mention there’s a private hot tub too? Some of our fave things were chatting it up with our host’s teenage son and his friend down at the river. They could be tour guides for the area with all of the tips they gave us. Also their two fur babies, Spike and Porsche, are so cute and friendly. What are you waiting for???? Book your stay already!!!” – Elizabeth

Guest review: “My best friend and I were lucky enough to stumble on this place and planned a weekend where we could rent just one camper. We don’t see each other often and always try to make the girls weekends when we get to catch up memorable. This was by far THE BEST place we have picked to date. Everything was so fun and festive. We had our own space and a fridge to stock with snacks and drinks. By the second day we agreed we should make this an annual trip! Kaci and Sterling were so welcoming and happy to give us the run down on the town. We explored the cute friendly town during the day and spent the evenings laughing and playing all the games they have. The glamp inn is layed out perfectly for groups or large family get togethers but even if you don’t have a large group I highly recommend booking a trip the few times a year they rent individual campers. You won’t be disappointed! It is one of a kind and something we will talk about forever. We can’t wait for next year!!!” – Kelly
