Domes – Hostel in the Forest – Chris McClellan

“Hey Lloyd…My wife and I went on a road trip last month to celebrate our 20th anniversary. We found this place called the Hostel in the Forest on the coast in Georgia with a couple cedar shake domes and a bunch of treehouses you can stay in with dinner for $35 per night plus a clothing optional warm lake and cold spring fed pool in the forest. The shower house has 2 walls facing the path so you walk in and your private shower stall is the rest of the forest. It reminds me of a cross between Bill Castle’s place and Breitenbush hot spring.…”
