Glowing Lotus

The Experience

The Glowing Lotus, nestled in a special part of the forest with a magical trail to the creek offers a private off grid experience.

Amongst the tall trees in the rain forest, the elegant bell tent is situated on a wood deck complete with a queen bed and a single futon for a possible third guest. (bring sleeping bag and for futon). A private and clean composting toilet serviced daily is at the site. The shared outdoor showers are just up the hill. There is a picnic table as well as a wood fire pit with a cooking grate. This is an off grid experience so the lighting provided is a clever mix of battery and solar that brings the Glowing Lotus to life at night, bring a lantern for more light. This truly unique experience is a glamping stay where you bring cooking supplies, cooler, stove or opt to dine out at one of Bandon’s many options.

DVR specializes in in offering private unique experiences to rejuvenate your mind and soul.

Guest access

Enjoy a walk around on the trails and say hello to the animals. Rikki and Hammy wander the property freely, please feel free to meet them! This is also why it’s important to drive the posted speed limits on the property. We offer our farm fresh eggs available at the red check-in shed. There are also sale items you may have forgotten along your trip. There are hammocks to check out as well as grill utensils for free. We offer games such as badminton, corn hole and ladder ball in game area (seasonal). Rent crab rings with lesson also available. There are walking trails and a seasonal pond to view wildlife. We also have a camp garden for you to pick items from for free as well (seasonal).

Important Information

Check in times are from 4pm-8pm only no late check-ins, this is to maintain safety and quality of our guests stay. If not checked in by 8pm the gate is locked and you will forfeit your stay (no refunds). Once checked in you will receive the information regarding the gate procedure so you may freely come and go as you wish. If you are looking for a motel stay we are probably not the best fit. We believe to get the best experience early check in as close to 4pm is recommended. As most of our guests wish they would have come earlier or stayed longer. Town/beach is only a short 10 minute drive if you want to explore after checking in. Please DO NOT FEED Hammy or Rikki they have special diets) however you may give food scraps to the chickens to reduce trash size. We do not offer trash service so what you bring please take with you.
