    When decisions need to be made Lyn DesMarais has a resource of wonderful friends that work as a team. There is a local tent company, portable outhouses and the location...Breath Taking! My favorite view from the pond to the small cabin tucked down a lovely path/meadow. Did a mention Lyn is also a "green thumb" and Jim her Husband are a wonderful team.

    We enjoyed our event at Swallow's Nest. Lyn was so easy to work with and worked hard to accommodate all of our requests. We would not hesitate to return.
