Once we meet with guests to provide some tipi and equipment information, we allow them their privacy. The timber provides a visual and sound barrier. We are available to them at our home if they need anything,
Campers sleeping in the tipi will find the floor carpeted with rugs. Feel free to bring an air mattress along with your sleeping bag and pillows. The sleeping area is a tipi that has withstood tornado force winds. However, it does have a smoke hole at the point and even when the smoke flaps are closed appropriately, some rain can come in. We are flexible when severe weather prevents campers from using the site.
Campers will also need to bring what ever food they would like to eat, including spices and seasonings. The kitchen is very well equipped for cooking over the fire or charcoal grill. This includes three sizes of Dutch ovens (no need for pots and pans with these), Dutch oven accessories, a grill for the fire ring and a Webber grill with briquettes and chimney starter. The idea is to keep it simple for our campers, it is an adventure after all!
As long-time tent campers, we always left our campsite better than we found it. We always practiced a "pack in - pack out" philosophy regarding our trash. We appreciate when guests do this as well. We provide a recycling can and small compost bin as well as a small can for burnable trash. If you have questions about this policy, please let us know. Please do not use the campfire to burn trash.
We do allow pets. We have two lab mixes that live on the farm. They are friendly and get along well with other dogs and kids. They can be kept inside if campers wish.
We do not allow cigarette smoking on the premises.
À partir du 1 mai 2017 - 31 octobre 2017, la durée minimum de séjour est de 1 nuit.
I am a naturalist who loves being outdoors. My husband Kent and I are restoring a 10 acre farmstead and love sharing our tipi and pond area. I have been teaching outdoor education for over 25 years. My children and now grandchildren are my pride and joy and I can't wait until they are old enough to "camp" in grandma's tipi. We like things simple, rustic and peaceful. We garden fruits, vegetables and lots of native plants. My husband is becoming a winemaker and beer master. We love living here and enjoy our free time "working" on the farm.
