Thank you does not seem enough for everything you did in hosting us this weekend.  My friends and I just had a blast with you!  Driving home we were talking about a once in a lifetime experience to look through not just one but two telescopes.   And to have Bentley and Lario all to ourselves to pick their brain was such a treat.  We all had amazing little insights from both of you.  I looked up last night, saw Jupiter and marveled thinking about how I saw it through the telescopes.  Lisa, your wonderful treats and wine made the whole experience one heck of a fun party!  

Donna and Doug, you have an amazing experience out there.  It seemed around every corner there was a lovely surprise or extra touch.  We enjoyed ourselves so much and are already talking about the fall!  We will all happily share our experiences with anybody who will listen!

Many, many thanks to all of you for your time in planning, corresponding and then joining us to make this weekend such a great time!

Words cannot express the unexpected beauty of the Hawley Farms glamping site. Even in pouring down rain, the beauty of this farm, will take your breath away.  The glamping sites are rustic, yet manicured private camping sites that cater to your every need.  We stayed in Big Bear this weekend. It was a surprise birthday gift for my friend who thought we were headed to a hotel! She said over and over this is was the best surprise ever!  We felt like we were on a secluded ranch where camping was truly glamping! Our yert was adorable, cozy and full of natural light. We sat by the fire pit and titki torches that the owners Donna and Doug lit for us.  Talk about beautiful!!  The owls were hooting, the frogs were chirping and the birds were singing.  It was heavenly!  The owners have created a site where every detail from torches, to seating, to candles in the trees created an ambiance that cannot be found anywhere else. We are already looking at dates to come back again with the husbands, asap! 

Thank you Donna and Doug, next time we hope to explore even more! 

We loved every single moment!

We won a free night at Hawley Farm Glamping through our neighborhood Creekmoor magazine.  Like you probably, we had no idea what that was all about but we like to keep an open mind in life while trying out new things.  It was such an overall pleasurable experience and the chillest, easiest, least hassle night of camping we have ever had in our lives.  The property owners, Doug and Donna, were fantastic and provided superb customer service.  It is obvious they take pride in what the do and it shows in the quality of product they achieve for their guests.  Basically this is five star hotel treatment while enjoying a night of camping in a beautiful outdoor setting.

Highly recommend. Super cool.

My husband surprised me with a trip to Hawley Farm for my birthday! The campsite was beautiful. We enjoyed hiking the trails, roasting s’mores, and getting caught up on some reading. We loved not being able to use our phones and unplug (there is cell reception on the Happy Hour Deck  :D).

The small details provided made our stay that much more wonderful! We hope to go back soon!

I was blessed to have bid and won this camping trip and helping single moms of kc At the same time. I took a gf with me. The photos don’t do it justice. There is a real bed in the very high quality tent. Everything is so fancy and clean. The owners are beyond welcoming and even lite our camp fire and tiki torches. We were overly blessed when a gentleman staying brought his extremely expensive telescope and we got to see Saturn, Jupiter, and so much more. When I come back I want to make time for fishing!

We loved our stay here, and plan to be back! The views are beautiful, the grounds are so well maintained, and the sites are peaceful and not close together. Such a wonderful place for peace and quiet. They provide the fun of camping, the comfort of a nice hotel and the extras and hospitality of a bed and breakfast. We slept well, hiked, played outdoor games, ate the large provided breakfast outside while enjoying the view, enjoyed 2 short trips into Hamilton (with surprisingly good restaurants!), had s'mores around our fire, and just rested without technology. You can come with virtually no supplies or knowledge of camping and still be covered. They go above and beyond. I highly recommend it.
