    Disappointed ☹️

    Was disappointed with this stay. There wasn’t enough campfires for the number of guests. The main tent was extremely over crowded both in the evening and in the morning. The bathroom is unisex and leaves little room for privacy. Although there are two private bathrooms they were seldom unoccupied. The tents are adorable but lack any privacy. They are extremely close together and you can literally take part in the conversation happening in the tent next to you. Although the concept is adorable the overall execution of the glamping experience is very poorly done.

    My stay here was fantastic. I was a little surprised that it wasn't out in the woods, but it was still wonderful.
