What Exactly Is
Glamping is camping at it’s very best – glamourous camping!
Imagine a gorgeous, luxurious, 19x14 foot fully furnished, Bo-Ho inspired, canvas tent dripping in fairy lights, surrounded by nature; starry, starry skies, moonglow filtering through the thick canopy of leafy branches, doves cooing, an owl hooting gently in the distance, the mesmerizing sound of crickets and frogs in the nearby creek and you and your special someone(s) sharing your day’s experiences as you sip cool drinks or hot chocolate while relaxing in Adirondack chairs on your own little porch or roasting marshmallows over an open fire! Enjoy all the beautiful benefits of camping in the great outdoors but without all the hassle of packing and…. sleep in a really comfortable bed!
This beautiful tent sleeps up to 4 on a quality queen air bed (18 inches off the ground) with memory foam topper or 2 singles, sisal rugs, antique furnishings, quality linen sheets, cozy down comforter, extra blankets, fan, heater, fluffy white towels and robes and welcome snack. Basic dishes, utensils, kettle, cups, and potable water are stocked for your use.
Enjoy an evening fire in your private stove/pit or join the shared fire at the large circular fire pit. Dine alfresco on the tent porch with food you’ve brought in your own cooler (cooler rental available if you don’t have one), take out from local restaurants, pre-booked homemade pizza cooked on the antique wood stove (or kitchen), or fire up the available electric bbq to sizzle your own steak.
Relax in the 3 season hot-tub before turning in for the night to the sound of evening songbirds. (Bring your own beach towels please).
In the morning, enjoy breakfast at any local restaurant, bring your own continental breakfast or cook over the open fire. An “add on breakfast” may be available on weekdays (see below for cost).
All “add ons” (charcuterie, pizza, breakfast) must be prebooked, prepaid and are non-refundable (due to market shopping in advance). Inquire by email if you have questions prior to booking.
Other add ons (pre-book 2 weeks prior to stay) include Outdoor Movie Night (weather dependent), museum tours, Natural Soap Making Workshop, garden tour/pick (seasonal).
