My girlfriends and I enjoyed our Yurt experience. It was very cozy and homey. The bathrooms were clean. It was a very peaceful experience. We were cooking for my daughter and her sorority sisters who were staying in the group lodge. The group lodge was perfect for their group. Plenty of space and a nice kitchen for us to work...

We spent one night in Yurt #8. The view was gorgeous, the bed was comfy, and the experience was awesome. Cons: the grill was far away from the yurt, the guest book has been full since 2012, so I couldn't write anything in it, the chalk board with what I'm assuming was instructions, was illegible because it hadn't been re-written...

Where to begin? This place was my answer to camping with the family. We have two 7 year olds and wanted to get them outdoors and adventuring. I wanted something a little more comfortable and this is what we found. This was such an amazing experience we are already planning our next trip. We stayed at yurt #8 and I...

Our family enjoyed our "glamping" at Falling Waters in the Yurt. The area was nice, the grounds beautiful and the checkin/out process beyond easy. We did have a broken futon in our room that we had to rig in order to provide a sleeping spot for our boys. Overall it was a great experience and one we will most likely...

This was a great experience for me and my girlfriend. It is not a luxury resort, but more like glorified camping. So if you love being outdoors, a few bugs, and having a running waterfall put you to sleep, I would 10/10 recommend. Fun Fact: If you follow the water path and do a brief scale down the side of...

My wife and I spent a weekend in one of the Yurts. I've heard some call it "glamping" since you sleep in a bed, have a hard floor with a rug beneath your feet and have both a space heater and a fan. On the other hand it is just a canvas walled tent so you can hear every single...

My husband and I stayed the weekend and had a great time. The yurts and bathhouse have all the amenities (mini fridge, space heater, blankets, towels, etc) while still allowing you to fall asleep to the sounds of the forest. We had a very comfortable and relaxing stay in Yurt 4. Lots of stuff to do nearby. We'll be back...

We had a lovely time staying at the Orchard Villa Yurt! The bed was comfortable and clean. This is the second time we stayed - this time the refrigerator needed a little help! and some dusting of the lamp shades and curtains would have been good. We would definitely stay again - the location is secluded, quiet and peaceful. The...

We only stayed one night in Yurt #5. It was rainy, but the rain helped me fall asleep. It wasn't too rainy that I got too wet on my 3 treks to the bathhouse. The yurts are spacious and comfortable. Lots of towels are provided. Do carry a flashlight. There are motion lights, but they are spaced pretty far apart,...

“Yurt 5 was located close bathroom. 7&8 are the ones with the views, but furthest from the bathrooms & to their campfire areas.”
