This site is on a dead-end lakeside road, within a 15 minute walk to swimming in big Saint Mary Lake. The glamping site itself also boasts a swimming pond with a dock that visitors regularly use to cool off. According to past visitors and the owners themselves, the farm feels like a sanctuary. There is a ton of bird life, and the creek and ponds are filled with otters, fish and beavers. Even the long driveway serves as a nice walk. Glampers can also visit the local market on Tuesdays or Saturdays, where they can by a range of delicious organic produce. If interested, glampers are also welcome to join in the farm work, which is mostly done by hand.
