During your stay

The Burrow sits on our beautiful 40 acres property here is Mineville that is a combination of forest and fields. As well as your luxury tent the property consists of the Owl & Otter - our 3000 sq foot vacation, retreat and event rental, two private residences (ours) and two studios (my husbands any my own). While this is a shared property we all highly value our privacy. You may see us walking by from time to time, so feel free to say hello, or ignore us, our feeling won't be hurt. If you need to reach us for any reason, we are close by and will be available throughout your stay.

ATTENTION: We are dog and cat owners and encourage guests to bring their pets along to enjoy their time away. This being said, our two big beautiful and friendly Goldendoodles, Moon and Dot, will most likely pay you at least one visit during you stay. If you are not ok with this then please reconsider booking, as this may not be the place for you.
