I would absolutely love to come back here. Make sure to get here as early as you can. The dirt road is completely flat but bumpy and long, and would be no fun in the dark esp pulling a trailer. Once you're there, you're in no hurry to leave. It is beautiful, and it seems like you can touch the Milky Way. The room is simple and elegant. The bed was perfectly restful, making the early morning light a delight. The expansive green meadow and multiple ponds with a background of pines is deeply serene. The cool silence interrupted only by calling birds. The continental breakfast was quite nice. Fresh berries and fruit with yogurt. Hard boiled eggs, a variety of pastries, breads and cereals hot and cold. Orange juice, ice water, and coffee options were all fine. My wife liked the pre-made crepes; I was satisfied with the fruit and pastries. The Host was a pleasant gentleman and the dining area was an open space of new concrete, glass, steel, and wood with ample comfortable seating. It felt a bit out of place in a very chic way. This place is unique, having both the seclusion feel of backpacking with absolute 4-star comfort.

We typically do camping the old school way but thought we would treat ourselves for New Years and try glamping, and we were thoroughly impressed! Wildhaven had everything you could possibly need, even free coffee in the morning! The tents are spacious and the bed was super comfortable.

An absolutely amazing experience. We stopped here on a SW Road Trip to visit 8 of the National Parks and our stay at Shanti’s was by far our group's favorite. Shanti is so kind and has amazing energy. I felt so safe and would recommend it for solo travelers as well as groups. 10/10 I am coming back for Shanti to guide me through the narrows at Zion ! PLEASE make this place a stop along your journey. You won’t regret it ! Super clean property, bathrooms are HEATED for any winter adventurers. Don’t skip this gem

I loved the sunshine glamping tent! It was a wonderful experience for a small getaway for my husband and I. We enjoyed the live music and dinner from the High Tanks Brewery. A cozy little fire to roast some amazing s’mores that were elevated with Caramel sauce and dates for that extra special touch. We enjoyed the cozy bed and twinkling lights in the tent!
