Reviews for Buffalo Thorn
Off grid. Eco estate. Perfect antidote to city life.
Beautiful nature, nice bird life, interesting people
Our stay at Kokopelli with our 2 dogs proved to be a tremendous choice for a rustic, tranquil, relaxing, romantic weekend. There are various walking trails of varying difficulty and scenery which both we and the dogs enjoyed. The cabin was nicely equipped - we lacked nothing - with a fantastic deck overlooking the valleys and hills and a superb fireplace inside. Alan & Aletta were great hosts. Truly & sincerely a wonderful weekend away
We had the most relaxing stay, thank you! We were overwhelmed by the serenity, the quiet, the beautiful view from the deck.... The fireplace and bath was the cherry on top! And our Bouvier loved it even more than we did, we could not keep her in the house - she ran around exploring for the entire length of our stay. The hikes are interesting and not too strenuous, just right for a weekend's stay. And thank you for allowing us to only leave at 16:00!
