Pitch your tent on one of three secluded private sites. The campfire/barbeque area is a great place to gather with new and old friends. You’ll be nestled in the woods with the convenience of a nearby composting toilet/outhouse, water spigot and picnic tables. A rustic cold-water outdoor shower is nestled in the trees, if you’re not afraid to bare all to the elements.
Experience a night glamping in Tir Na Nog, “land of the forever young”, your own private nook in the woods. Your Texas safari tent comes complete with a lovely queen size bed, dresser, tables and seating. All you need to bring is your pajamas. You will find enchantment on your deck gazing at the magnificent night sky!
Our nature inspired biophilic cottage was thoughtfully designed to fit in with its pristine natural setting and offers the perfect opportunity to become one with nature. Open the entire wall to the adjacent meadow and savor the gentle breezes and wonderful view.
