Welcome to the wilderness! Tipi for camping and getting away from it all. No amenities except outhouse. You bring camping gear and a desire to rough it. Cook over the campfire, watch the stars, and hike in the woods; watch the wildlife. No one will bother you. Enjoy!
The tipi is on a hill in the midst of gorgeous Kentucky countryside surrounded by hay fields. Tipi is 16 ft in diameter, and can comfortably (!?) sleep 4-6. There is no running water, and you must bring in all your gear except firewood. There are a few folding chairs and a fire circle. Expect a quarter mile walk from vehicle to tipi, down and up hill.
While here, feel free to hike through the forest, fish from the pond, play in the mud and romp on the hills.
When finished, please be considerate and clean up after yourself, taking out anything you brought in.
Location is halfway between Cincinnati and Lexington, off I-75 -- in the middle of nowhere! Great place to wear out the kids, do a nature hike, have a scouting outing or a Native American themed camp out.
I'm happy to answer any questions. Note that the drop down boxes do not allow for accurate answers in this instance, for example, there are no beds. You bring your own!
If you're staying a few days, you're welcome to use my shower at the house and get water there too. Just bring a container.
Please tell me if you're bringing children and how many. It probably isn't a great place to bring kids under five.
We booked Leslie's tipi for a night - planning to stay there on Fourth of July, thus escaping the noise from celebrations in the city. Leslie was very helpful and a great communicator - she offered us the use of her entire property even though she'd be out of town during our stay. Her farm and land are absolutely gorgeous - almost magical. We enjoyed hiking her property, and meeting her sweet dogs and horses.
The tipi itself wasn't up to par for us. It was surrounded by tall grass and there was lots of mold on it (probably not an issue for some but both my partner and I were getting over stomach bugs so we were worried about getting sick again). Also, we couldn't find a place to build a fire.
Even though we couldn't stay in the tipi (we decided to drive on after a hike) we still loved Leslie's place? The take away? Be prepared to rough it. And bring a tent. Overall, it was nice just being in Kentucky for awhile. Plus, it was my first time seeing a peacock outside of a zoo. Score.
This was an absolutely amazing experience for my family. We brought a tent and slept in that as the Tipi had a rock floor but it was still very cool and my kids played in there without worry. Leslie was awesome, took the girls in and had them do some chores to earn their keep. We let the children experience this completely and they loved every minute of it. I loved the dogs and the solitude. Make sure you bring what you need as the store is quite far away but if you are roughing it this is the place to be. We WILL be back for sure. Thanks for the wonderful weekend and experiences that will last a lifetime. Give our best to all of the ponies and to Gus, Truman, Reba, and Yeller.
A+ in our book.
Leslie was a wonderful and completely unique hostess who went out of her way to make each day enjoyable!! The teepee was very roomy and centered in the rolling hills of Kentucky! We loved being able to cook around the campfire inside every night!! We went here for our honeymoon and for the peace and quiet of the country. We went to sleep at night listening to the Whippoorwills and woke up listening to the Bob Whites. We saw many kinds of birds and wildlife while hiking her farm and we had all the privacy we could have ever asked for! Leslie took us for a ride on her horse drawn carriage and even took me along while driving the horses on a Dressage practice drive complete with lesson! Leslies farm was a wonder in itself. From the beautiful and elegant Swedish Gotland Ponies, the big sweet Percherons, the wonderful and gorgeous dogs, the chickens and the sheep to the two gobbling turkeys following us around the yard "talking" to us the entire experience was a peaceful reminder of how wonderful nature can be. The coffee was great, the food and country hospitality was wonderful and the company was the best! I would recommend this to anyone who would like to enjoy the great outdoors and is an animal lover! I couldnt have dreamed a better honeymoon experience!
Thank You sooo much Leslie!!
