Our new Bell, Explorer and Safari glamping tents have a variety of sleeping options – queen, king, two queens, a queen and a twin — with soft mattresses and quality sheets, pine furniture, fans, electric lights, wood pellet stoves and heaters. The glamping tent platforms are in the trees, with a veranda, outdoor chairs and a small enclosure with a portable toilet and sink. A short walk takes you to showers and additional toilets. There is also an area for barbequing and outdoor dining. Our hot tubs under the stars are also nearby. (Reserve your private hot tub time on our website in advance of your arrival. See the scheduling app under “Activities”). Glamping is a far cry from the days of camping on air mattresses with sleeping bags!
Access to all Amenities
Our glamping guests have full access to the amenities and receive the complimentary breakfast in the Manor House. We have walking trails for those who want to explore nature and the nearby Digdeguash tidal bay and waterfall.
The History of Glamping
Glamping is often considered a new concept because the word was only added to the dictionary in 2016. However, historical records and paintings reveal its popularity among the European aristocracy from the 1500s. The English kings and a few hundred friends were known to erect more than a thousand tents for a summer holiday of “glamping”, furnishing the compound with beds, tables and chairs and oriental carpets from their castles. African safaris brought an unprecedented luxury to camping in the early 1920s that has now spread around the globe.
Glamping with pets.
While we love your pets, and appreciate how much you want to have them share your glamping experience, there is a risk involved. If left inside a tent, or when something interesting is seen outside, a dog’s natural instinct is often to scratch at the screens. A damaged tent may have to be sent to the manufacturer in Denver, Colorado, and the cost of shipping, repair, and customs clearance can easily exceed $1000 – for even a small repair. This cost would be your responsibility. Never leave your pet alone inside a glamping tent. If you want to avoid the potential liability, please stay in a cabin, or one of our guest rooms or suites.

Glamping guests have full access to the amenities.

Picnic tables and a barbeque are at the Glampers Pavilion. Our hot tubs under the stars are available for you to schedule your personal time.
