A few other assorted questions:
Q: What type of sleeping gear and clothes should I bring?
A: Even though the trailers are well insulated it can get quite cool even in the summer, also it does rain, even though we provide plenty of shelter you will need rain gear and whatever gear that is specific to what you are planning. Bring sleeping bags, sheets or blankets and towels glamping sites.
Can we bring pets?.............Jake's Trailer is specifically for folks with pets, it has a fenced in yard. They are not allowed inside though, some guests are allergic. As for the other places, contact us and we will talk about it. How the heck do we find the place? From Hwy 74 take the exit 64/Alarka Road.......... Go up Alarka rd about 5 miles........... Take a left on Pigeon Creek Road, go about 200 yards.........Take a left on Hidden Hollow rd............Follow the TearDrops signs up several switchbacks. (Remember it is gravel mountain road and is a bit steep in places, best to get here before dark the first time). Hummingbird Hill will be the first place you come to on the right.......... Jake's Trailer and Wattle and Daub is next on the left few hundred yards more.........Big SunDrop and Little SunDrop are next on the right about another 100 yards........... It is a big place....30 acres....be patient, it's worth it.
Q: Does the kitchen come stocked?
A: Yes, with pots, pans, plates, silverware and even a coffee grinder. There is a pop up shelter covering the kitchen area.
