Our Mission

To offer a safe and relaxing, affordable getaway, for you to come together with other like-minded people or enjoy those closest to you and create the trip of a lifetime. 

Creating live connections is our primary goal. With today's technology real connection can be limited, which is why we have removed most virtual distractions from our facility. Go back to conversations, games, meeting new people and connecting around a campfire with those you love or those you just met, it can be a healing experience. 


Note: We do not host WiFi and are environmentally friendly (no A/C)

Guests are welcome to bring fans (each room has 1 included)
