“Our stay at the Yurt was a peacefull and quiet experience, a perfect place to be in contact with nature and get away from the craziness that is going on right now. The pool and hot tub are steps away from the Yurt, the walking trails are very close by and we also used the main road to walk because there is not traffic at all, we only saw one car on the road during the whole stay. The product we bought from the farm were fresh and tasty. We recommend this place to a couple friends with kids as a getaway for the summer quarantine.You are not going to be in contact with nobody there that is for sure so no worries of any kind about you or your family getting sick..”
Gum Tree Lodge, a newly built A-frame style cottage is located in the Madison-Barbour Rural Historic District on seventy acres of pastoral countryside. Nestled in woods the Lodge offers a unique retreat for couples and gathering place for friends.
“My husband and I stayed here and had an amazing time. The place was spotlessly clean and so cozy. Margaret was such a kind and easy to reach host! We really didn’t want to leave, by the end. From the relaxing walk in shower, to the little gas fire, to the amazing view of the woods, to the well appointed kitchen (with half a dozen eggs, butter, cream, coffee, and numerous other things ready to use if needed) and everything else about this place, it was such a peaceful and relaxing visit. We can’t wait to stay here again in the future 🥰 preferably in the summer so we can enjoy that amazing screened porch and outdoor shower! Definitely book a trip here!”

“Jill's place was AWESOME! The yurt was such a unique experience and offered everything my wife and I could have possibly wanted in a getaway weekend. The house up on a steep incline so the views were spectacular. The deck was a great place to hang out and enjoy the view and we loved having the fire pit down below for the chilly nights. There are a number of great hikes very close by which was perfect for us and our dog, who also had an amazing time. We didn't use the grill, but the kitchen provided everything we could have possibly needed. We packed some of our own cookware/utensils as we didn't know exactly what we might need, but we ended up just using everything that was provided which was great. It was the perfect place for a weekend getaway, but we both agreed we could have definitely seen ourselves staying for a few more days or even a week as the place offered everything we could have wanted. Overall we had a fantastic time and would absolutely recommend a stay here to anyone considering.”
