We had some trouble driving down from Portland, a flat tire on the way, so we showed up later at night. Rhea was in communication with us, she helped us locate the space by flagging us down from the road when we got there. Since it was dark, it was a little bit difficult to find. The space was amazing, Rhea has put a lot of work into this location, and it shows. The tent was large and comfortable, and the surrounding grounds are spacious and accommodating, we were able to sleep out under the stars on the second night, and it was an amazing view. We didn't use the creek much, as we were gone during the day, but it was nice and secluded, with plenty of space to wade around and cool off. The fire pit was also great, we had fires late into the night on both nights. This was a very unique listing, and I would highly recommend it for people who are travelling to/through Corvallis. I definitely hope to stay here again.

The host lives in a tiny house on the property. She greeted us when we made it to the tent and told us about the location of the restrooms and showed us the fire-pit down by the steam.

We had a great night staying in the tent at Rhea's. The tent under the trees is awesome, and we enjoyed sitting by the creek and relaxing. Very fun!

We spent two nights at Rhea's tent and spent the day in between at the Renaissance Festival. It was a great experience! We had just as much fun playing croquet as we did at Ren Fest. The set up is really nice and clean and is a good distance from the house for privacy. If you're from the city, the experience of seeing the stars so bright at night and sleeping with absolute quietness is wonderful. Rhea is super friendly and accommodating, and she keeps the place very clean. We'll definitely be back!

Nice, roomy tent with clean facilities close by. Rhea also has a great little area with games like croquet, and she was really easy to check in with. I booked this the last minute- literally the day of- and she made it happen, so I really appreciated it! Great host.
