For the more adventurous love birds, try staying in one of the Ranch’s tipis. These structures are actually made by the same company that made tipis for the iconic movie Dances with Wolves. Lodging in a tipi definitely takes austere campers, as it comes with “semi-comfortable” cots and not much else. But not to worry; each tipi includes its own private modern bathroom. And the best part: the tipis are situated near babbling waterfalls that will send you into pure relaxation.
13. Historic Hayes House Bed & Breakfast
