Hi Alexis! We do have a Tipi on site :) It's for guest use - we often host guests in it to play music, participate in story telling, roast marshmallows, etc. It's very close to the guest cabins and the main lodge, so guests can spend all of the time they'd like in the Tipi, but also sleep in their own room/cabin!
We'd love to host you this August - if you have specific dates, you can always shoot us an email and we'll be happy to get you a detailed quote.
