Wonderful, lovely place with lively hosts. Our tent was super! We loved it even when raining, had awesome time making small campfire toasting marshmallows the snoopy way So yes definitely fun pace for kids too!We will definitely go back, place was clean with lot of attention to detail. Area is fab for hiking and you shouldn't miss out home made pizzas at the Red Barn, restaurant next door.
