Additional Info & Amenities

Memory making Romantic Trip, Family Fun, or Weekend Getaway for the horse enthusiast! Meandering Flat Creek has been flowing here for generations and created a small, unique island just a few steps from your expedition tent. Cross the footbridge and spend the night enjoying one of our THREE stone fire-pits. Be entertained by the soft neighs and nickers of our horses. Our friendly, socialized herd will delight you with their natural beauty. NOTHING has been forgotten. Your tent has LED lanterns and scented candles and is layered with the comforts of home. Your beds will be made with freshly laundered linens and blankets, and bath towels are tucked away in a side table where you will also find bug spray and fun board games! A rain shelter covers your picnic-cooking area and your outdoor kitchen has a full-size propane cook stove and a fully stocked camp box. We include cast iron cookware and utensils, dishes, silverware and serving pieces. Complimentary freshly ground coffee, mugs, french press, cream & sugar for your morning. 10 Gallons of fresh water are set up and available for you in convenient dispenser containers. For a unique "Nature Bath" outdoor shower experience, enjoy the comfort of a spacious, wooden privacy shelter with a transparent roof and LED light and campers loo. We have LOTS of wood on our forest floor if you like the fun of foraging your own fire-pit "fuel", (Kids LOVE this), but also DRY SPLIT HARDWOOD and all the supplies you need to create an easy, beautiful fire (paper, kindling, lighters, and firestarters), are stored in a waterproof box right near your tent. At NO EXTRA COST to you. Book a unique horse experience with us. Members of our herd are kind and gentle companions and wonderful teachers for those who wish to know more about the nature of the horse. If you have a "horse curious" or "horse-crazy" kid we can provide a safe, hand-led horseback ride on one of our beautiful Haflingers. For adults, we offer a "cross it off your bucket list" riding experience too! Visit "Parsons Farm Stand" (and tell Kenyon and Reta we say Hi!) on your way to the nearby historic district in quaint and quirky Sharon Springs where you will find shops, eateries, & old-world architecture. Local Breweries, Winery’s, Cavern Tours, Zip-Lining, Glimmerglass Lake, Kayaking & Hiking are all close-by! Let us help you make amazing memories this weekend.
