THE CABINS

Glamping-style cabin life is cozy, comfortable, adorable and simply perfect.

All cabins are surrounded by statuesque spruce and pine trees that whisper softly in the wind among sweet singing birds. Bright sunny views create a light and airy ambience, whether you are watching the sunrise while cozy under your covers, laying in bed gazing at the sky and tree tops above, or falling asleep bathed in moonlight. Experience the magic of nature right from the comfort of your bed.

Each cabin can accommodate 3-4 people, and upon registration we will pair you with your friend(s), or with other like-minded, beautiful souls to share the cabin and experience with.
