Guestbook comments from the owner
"Romance, adventure, family, and the most relaxing nights in the "

My husband and I stayed at (very) Precious Forest for two foggy nights in February to scout out the venue and plan our april vow renewal. We came extremely prepared. We read off-the-grid, so we came equipped with water, flashlights, candles, batteries, and board games. Instead, apparently, everything was provided for, and we didn't touch the board games because the view from the deck in the Chalet is just stunning rain or shine.



There are not enough stars out there to truly rate our experience at Precious Forest. All 22 of our guests claimed that it was the best sleep they'd had in a while (we agree). Ken, the host, was the most gracious host we could have ever asked for. Normally, when you rent a place, you hope whoever owns it stays away the whole time, but we just kept hoping he'd come by for lunch!



We had everything that we could have possibly needed to cook and serve all of the food, silverware, stemware, everything! When we read "refrigeration" we figured there would be a big cooler with some ice, but found that we were able to use an actual fridge. There were towels and comfy flannel sheets, and plenty of firewood. The spring water tastes fantastic and gets nice and hot.



We had the most beautiful wedding, in such an amazing place full of heart and soul. In every corner of the property, you can really see the love that was put into it. Ken is just an awesome person, and we'll never forget looking out past our guests to see him cheering us on after the ceremony. He was with us the entire day making sure everything went smoothly, and that's an incredible thing that will keep us coming back to Precious Forest again, and again, and again.

Magical spot for a weekend away with friends!

  • 5 of 5
Wow, Precious Forest is truly a gem! We were looking for a spot to hangout with friends without the restrictions of a campground or the expense of a giant mansion--we're thrilled we found Ken's incredible spot! We had 25 friends come up for a relaxing weekend of campfires, games, hiking and music. Ken was a great host and even cooked up a delicious and very memorable feast for everyone. The road up is a bit rough, so we decided to just do a little walk/hike from the site to a cool rock. It was 6.2 miles round trip from the site (no driving needed), and a perfect little outing. My only suggestion is to bring a french press if you're a coffee fan. Otherwise, absolutely everything you could imagine is already there--Ken has thought of it all and has perfected the "Glamping" experience!

Wonderfully quaint, spacious, friendly, affordable

  • 5 of 5
A group of friends and I (14 all together I believe) stayed at Precious Forest for a joint bachelor/bachelorette party and it was the perfect place. It's a little crazy finding the place at night, though not all of us had this problem, so I would recommend trying to arrive during the daytime. Otherwise, it truly was perfect, and anyways it's nice to be deeper into the woods so as to get a bit more privacy than you would have closer to the lake. There was plenty of space for our whole group. The cabins and tents were nicely kempt. There was a generator that operated perfectly and allowed us to project a movie out on the lawn (Friday the 13th because, ya know, cabins and all). The cabin was close to Clear Lake, which is not a swimming lake, but we found great swimming a little ways up the road (you can ask the on-site manager about this). It's hot up there in mid-July but there is plenty of shade in which to recline and recover from many a hang over. Overall we really enjoyed our stay and I could see us coming back in the future just for the fun of it.

Precious and Perfect weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5
I was recently put in charge of finding a location to host a joint bachelor/bachelorette party weekend. After searching for weeks I stumbled upon Precious forest. Precious forest was the perfect fit. The weather was beautiful, the lodgings were comfortable and the scenery was breathtaking. Precious forest comes equipped with a full kitchen, dining room, cabins and teepees with beds, outdoor showers and even an outdoor toilet. Precious forest provided us with modern amenities in a laid back camping setting, for those who like to feel like they are roughing it in a convenient comfortable style. The onsite manager Dan provided us with wood for the fire every night and provided a wealth of information about the area. We also had loads of entertainment with the "owners" of precious forest, Sinbad (the large cuddly cat), Dip (the fluffy sweet watchdog), and Sasha (the little furry party animal). At precious forest we had everything we needed and the weekend before the wedding was one we will all always remember.

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5
We love this place and its host, Ken. The cabin is great and very secluded - if you want to listen to deep of deepest silence and enjoy quiet and relaxing time - it's hard to imagine a better place. Granted, you sometimes may need to hear a muffled sound of the generators, but it's a fair price to price to pay for those times in between (we were perfectly happy with candle light at night, so we did not need the generators most of the time, anyway).

Ken is a great host. He cooked and served us a great dinner - make sure to bring your best appetites - the food is not only delicious and creative, but also ... ample, to say the least :).
