Blogger Spotlight: Kristina and Naizak

By Jessica Armstrong

There's nothing better than a summer glamping getaway (start planning yours for next year here!)—and even more so when (wo)man's best friend is coming along for the ride.

Kristina of Day in My Dreams and her best dog pal, Naizak, made their way over to a stunning Virginia cottage for their first Glamping with Pets vacation. We asked her to give us the inside scoop on glamping with her furry BFF, paw in hand.

Cottage with Mountain Views of Blue Ridge Parkway

Packs and pup in tow, Kristina is ready to go glamping.

What three words would you use to describe your Glamping Hub stay?

Relaxing, fun, and escape.

Cottage with Mountain Views of Blue Ridge Parkway

From the moment Naizak strutted through the door, he knew he found his home-away-from-home.

What are your packing essentials for every glamping trip?

Since glamping is a lot like camping, it's important to bring a few essentials! My must-haves include food (and plenty of it), bevies, your own toiletries, and a body prepped for relaxation.

What are your main steps to planning a getaway?

Scheduling a getaway can be difficult with a busy schedule. Set aside time in advance, and don't let other plans intervene—everyone needs time for themselves.

Cottage with Mountain Views of Blue Ridge Parkway

Enjoy this gorgeous view from the living room every day.

Do you prefer to travel in large groups, solo, or with a companion?

I love traveling in large groups or even alone! It's a totally different experience either way. If I have party pants on, I go with a group of my best girlfriends. When I need some time to unwind, I prefer to travel alone or with a single companion.

Cottage with Mountain Views of Blue Ridge Parkway

(Wo)man's best friend and glamper alike, these two pals sure are having a ball.

What is your main piece of advice for travelers planning their first glamping stay?

Be sure to think through your packing list thoroughly. If you're staying in a remote area, you may not be able to find what you need at the destination.

Cottage with Mountain Views of Blue Ridge Parkway

These plush couches are calling your name for some relaxation and a cozy afternoon nap.

What is your dream destination?

Bali!

If you were to visit a glamping accommodation tomorrow, where and what type would it be?

I would love to go glamping on a tropical getaway. It's so nice to be able to enjoy the luxury of some place exotic while having the comforts of a home.

Cottage with Mountain Views of Blue Ridge Parkway

A view this stunning never gets old.

What was the biggest surprise about your glamping stay?

The view was so much better than I had even imagined! We're already planning our next trip.

Blogger Spotlight: Grace

By Jessica Armstrong

We heard there is nothing quite like Canada in the summertime—and we think you should check it out, too. Grace of Color and Grace took advantage of the amazing weather this summer and headed up north to take a break from the hustle and bustle of the U.S.

Cottage Rental with Private Lakefront Yard in Canada

Meet Grace, Founder of Color and Grace, and stylist by day and night.

Calling this cozy cottage rental—with its very own private lake!— a home away from home for a couple days was just what she needed to reconnect with nature and have a blissful glamping escape.

Check out her story on her blog as well as the inside scoop on her getaway below.

The interior of this cozy cottage is a haven of comfort.

What was your initial reaction to arriving at your glamping retreat?

Looks even better than the photos online! You have to be there to feel the lakefront and the vineyard—just so breathtaking!

What are your top 5 travel must-haves?

  • Personal Wi-Fi hotspot if I travel internationally or a good Wi-Fi and cell phone reception if I travel domestically.
  • SPF 100 sunscreen, since I always like being outside or soaking up the sun.
  • A pair of super comfy and pretty walking shoes.
  • A pair of good looking and good functioning sunglasses to protect my eyes from the sun.
  • Hand sanitizing wipes and mosquito spray.

Glampers will be enchanted by the colorful nature surrounding their accommodation

What is your most important piece of advice in planning a glamping getaway?

Do lots of research before booking anything. Don't book it just because the site or the accommodation is very pretty. Make sure there are plenty of activities that you love near where you may stay.

What are the three words you would use to describe your glamping accommodation?

Beautiful, comfortable, and homey.

If you could travel anywhere in the world tomorrow, where would it be and why?

London. It is on my bucket list.

With this kind of view, glampers are sure to feel relaxed and at ease.

Where do you want to go glamping next? Any accommodations in mind?

A real tree house!

What is your favorite memory from your glamping getaway?

There were a few. One was the yummy breakfast I cooked using the farm-fresh eggs at my cottage. We were chased by a group of roosters at a farm when we tried to take some photos. I chatted with many people while wine tasting and one place didn't even charge us.

By Jessica Armstrong

Who doesn't love a good glamping trip to Lake Tahoe, California? Christine of Tour de Lust really showed us what we are missing out on over on the West Coast, so it's time to get packing and join in on the fun. Just take a look at this one-of-a-kind glamping cottage!

Christine sat down with us to share some of her favorite memories, experiences, and plans for upcoming travel with you glampers, so prepare yourself for a heavy dose of travel FOMO.

Meet Christine, Founder of Tour de Lust, and California glamping extraordinare.

What was the most memorable experience during your glamping getaway?

I loved spending time on the lake. It's so beautiful!

What was the best surprise about your glamping site?

The overall experience at the cottage! I loved our location since it had a private beach access.

The blogger admiring the sunset over Lake Tahoe, California.

Talk about an amazing place to catch the sunset!

Where is your favorite destination to go glamping?

This was my first time glamping, and I loved it! Lake Tahoe is definitely a great place to go glamping.

Where is your dream travel destination?

There are so many dream destinations, but right now, it's Bali and the Maldives.

The exterior of the gorgeous log cottage in Lake Tahoe.

This glamping property offers the most charming accommodations.

What advice do you have for packing for a glamping getaway?

If it's during the summer, always bring sunscreen and bug spray. You will likely be outdoors a lot, so always stay protected.

What is your must-have when traveling?

My camera! I can never leave home without it.

The cozy bedroom in the Lake Tahoe cottage.

Glampers are sure to get the best sleep they've had in years.

Do you spend a lot of time planning your trips or are you more spontaneous once you arrive at your destination?

I do so that I make sure I don't miss anything. But being spontaneous is also good, too, because you will end up on a fun adventure!

Do you have your eye on another glamping site for the future? Where?

There are some awesome accommodations on Glamping Hub! I want to stay in a cool tree house in Mexico, but likely Yosemite is next for me.

The cottages tucked away among the large trees that surround Lake Tahoe, California.

Kick back, relax, and enjoy the tranquility of Tahoe's finest forests.

Blogger Spotlight: Max & Alex

By Jessica Armstrong

Nothing says relaxation and luxury getaway like a trip to Bali, Indonesia. Filled with elegant tents and stunning villas, this island is a glamping heaven. Just ask Max and Alex—they can tell you firsthand that there is no paradise like a glamping paradise.

Check out some of their favorite memories and moments from their stay.

Elegant Tents Tucked Away in Bali, Indonesia

Upon arrival, you'll need a moment to take in this surreal experience.

What do you like most about glamping?

What we liked most about glamping was the unique accommodation. It felt like a luxury hotel placed right in the middle of the jungle. It was also obvious that a lot of thought went into the design of the place, as it was a dream to photograph and much more interesting than a typical hotel.

Tell us 3 words to describe this accommodation.

Unique, stunning, amazing.

Elegant Tents Tucked Away in Bali, Indonesia

The view never quits, even from indoors.

Do you both prefer to travel alone or with a larger group?

We have no preference on traveling with a group or alone. It just depends on timing and destination. We meet up with people frequently to hike and take pictures, but some trips it doesn't work out, due to time restraints and busy schedules!

Where is your dream destination?

At this point, our dream destination is Iceland. We would love to see the amazing rugged landscape that Iceland has to offer.

Elegant Tents Tucked Away in Bali, Indonesia

Admire the lush greenery before diving into the crystal clear water of your own private pool.

If you were to go glamping tomorrow, where would you go?

Probably somewhere in Hawaii, as I would love to photograph the coastline and some of the hikes it has to offer.

What was the most memorable experience at your most recent glamping stay?

Definitely the food. Every guest that ate there had something to say about how great the food was. We enjoyed one of the best meals we have ever had during our Glamping stay.

Elegant Tents Tucked Away in Bali, Indonesia

Nothing says relaxation more than good night's sleep.

What is your top tip or recommendation for a first time glamper?

Take it all in and enjoy. It is one of the most memorable experiences you will have at an accommodation so relax and make the most of it!

What about travel inspires you?

Traveling is one of the best things you can do in your life. Not only does it open you up to new cultures and experiences, but it pushes you out of your comfort zone. It forces you to deal with difficult and unexpected situations head on and helps you to become a more well-rounded person.

Elegant Tents Tucked Away in Bali, Indonesia

Camping in a tent has never felt so luxurious.

By Jessica Armstrong

There's no better time than summer to catch the best weather the Pacific Northwest has to offer. On top of the luscious greenery, gorgeous scenic views of the Cascades, and, hello, boating season, Washington offers you glampers the most unique and epic accommodations around.

Carolyn of Hey Pretty Thing is no stranger to taking advantage of Washington's stunning summers, and who could blame her? We are already planning our trip their too! Especially, with this beachside cabin on Herron Island calling our names.

Looking for more reasons to visit Washington and go on other glamping getaways across the globe? Let Carolyn give you the ins and outs on how to plan, prep, and perfect your vacation this summer.

Where are your favorite spots to travel?

The most special place I always travel to is Hong Kong, because that's where I'm from and where my family lives. The city is so energetic, and all the sounds and smells make me nostalgic for childhood. They say there is no place like home!

Another place is probably Iceland, because we recently traveled there in the summertime, and it felt like we were transported to another world. You can drive to soak in geothermal pools of the Blue Lagoon, check out the tectonic rift valley at Thingvellir National Park, and so much more.

I also love Italy. My husband and I hiked through the five towns of Cinque Terre, and the views were stunning. We ate and drank along the way (lots of pesto and limoncello!) so it was also a fun culinary experience!

Guests can find the beach just steps away from the front door of their private [cabin](https://glampinghub.com/unitedstatesofamerica/pacificwest/washington/lakebay/glamping-olympia/).
*

I have to mention Civita di Bagnoregio (nicknamed "the dying city") as well, where I traveled with my best friend. It was founded by Etruscans over 2,500 years ago, and the town itself is near collapse due to erosion. There is anywhere between 12-100 people who live there. The quaint community, surrounded by gorgeous sights of the Tiber river valley, is just so unique to visit. But as touristy as Venice is, the city of water, canals, and bridges is too charming to pass up.

What is important to you in choosing a travel destination?

I like to visit places I've never been. With that said, I take into account practical details like the time of year, weather, political climate, safety, etc.

Beachside Cabin in Washington*

This [cabin](https://glampinghub.com/unitedstatesofamerica/pacificwest/washington/lakebay/glamping-olympia/) comfortably sleeps eight guests.
*

What types of accommodations do you think make great summer spots?

For summer spots, I look for accommodations that are, in themselves, the destination. While I like to go out and explore, I also want downtime to lounge, so I like the accommodation to have a view or nearby activities and dining.

Beachside Cabin in Washington*

Glampers can enjoy every meal from the deck of their glamping oasis.
*

How would you prefer to travel to your glamping destination?

Any way! While flights are quicker and more direct, sometimes a road trip is the adventure.

What do you look for when choosing an accommodation?

I look for accessibility, safety, and uniqueness.

Beachside Cabin in Washington*

*

What blogs do you read, websites do you look at to find more information, or people you consult on your destination before booking?

I do a ton of research online before booking. I look at Pinterest, read travel blogs, consult Tripadvisor, peruse reviews, and more.

What is your favorite part about planning a trip?

I enjoy the research aspect of planning a trip. That's when I learn a lot about the area's customs, history, neighborhoods, foods, etc.

Beachside Cabin in Washington

*

For someone who is planning a glamping trip for the first time, what would your main piece of advice for them be?

For me, preparation is key to relaxation. While there are a lot more amenities included with glamping, you should still be prepared to bring some necessities like water, extra towels, food and snacks, sunscreen and bug spray, and more. If you have room, pack along secondary items like games and beach equipment. As long as you know what is provided and what you still need to bring, it's easier to be prepared and enjoy the trip!

Blogger Spotlight: Jane and Drew

By Jessica Armstrong

Newly married and founders of Outdoor Junkiez, Jane and Drew Farwell have taken the time to share their experiences with both glamping and camping with Glamping Hub, including what differentiates and unites both vacation styles.

eco-friendly reterat in maui, hawaii

Outdoor Junkiez connects travelers with the gear and goods for exploring the beautiful islands of Hawaii, and they know that getting all the insider tips and need-to-knows while planning a vacation can sometimes be overwhelming. That's why these two campers-turned-glampers made a stay at a one of Glamping Hub's finest Maui eco-retreats that much easier to book with their go-to guide for the ultimate Maui stay.

Pull out your yoga mats and snorkels, and let Jane and Drew take you on the adventure from here.

What truly makes an impact in defining the difference between camping and glamping?

Glamping, an idea originally created as a style of glamorous camping, has taken the next step with Glamping Hub. Just like our campsites have evolved over the past 30+ years, we now find campsites with showers and bathrooms, and we bring mattress pads, coolers full of frosty beverages, and anything we can cook on a stick. Yet camping remains nostalgically simple—a space to escape, sleep under the stars, and reek of campfire smoke for a good 48-72 hours.

eco-friendly reterat in maui, hawaii

The defining difference between glamping and camping, aside from the gl- and the c-, is experiencing someone’s special place on their property, designed specifically for a tranquil and relaxing vacation.

With camping you need to be prepared for the elements, which for Hawaii can be quite minor—a couple of rain showers at night, critters attracted to the blazing fire, and the occasional rooster who will think they’re being helpful by waking you up at dawn.

All of this is part of the camping experience, and once the tent is folded back up, the campsite is swept for any left over trash, and you get back into your car, and you feel refreshed yet very, very, dirty (nothing a beach shower won’t mend).

eco-friendly reterat in maui, hawaii

Our experience in Maui was just this. We had spent four nights camping in Hana and sleeping in a yurt on farm and felt alive, yet in need of a good waterfall shower, dinner, and a comfortable bed to lay our heads. In our efforts to redefine the way people buy, use, and rent outdoor equipment, we have seen also how the idea of glamping is no longer bringing a fancy cot to sleep on and a cast iron skillet for bacon in the morning...it is much more, but bacon is always a nice touch.

Glamping is focused on thinking (or sleeping) outside the box, to experience a 100% sustainable eco-retreat tucked back into the lush jungle and gardens of Maui. It gives you the opportunity to stay places you’d never thought you’d experience and brings a new perspective to your trip.

eco-friendly reterat in maui, hawaii

Now having experienced glamping, will this influence your future outdoor getaways?

Drew and I grew up camping, him on the East Coast, me in California, and both in Washington and Hawaii. For us, camping has always been a one- or two-day escape from the hustle and bustle of town. This was the main reason we started Outdoor Junkiez here in Hawaii, provided the low-cost rental option for both travelers and residents to check out and see Hawaii in it’s rawest form.

Glamping Hub is the perfect component to balance out the more rugged style of vacationing while holding on to a lot of what we believe is a better way to travel. Staying in eco retreats, yurts, and 100% off-the-grid cottages, to name a few, is the perfect compliment to our conservation through recreation lifestyle.

Next on the list is to stay in one of the stunning tree houses listed...

eco-friendly reterat in maui, hawaii

What positive experiences in both can you share with our readers?

Living in Hawaii and promoting a platform to reduce the amount of waste entering our landfills, while also getting more and more people outside, has been the most positive experience we could ever ask for. Our connection to one another and this island we call home only grows stronger with each weekend get away.

You literally have to pinch yourself as you watch the sun set over the ocean into a fiery orange and purple haze, while humpbacks play in the water no more than 300 yards away. You get to disconnect—our phones are only used, if ever, to play music and record a video here and there to document and hopefully inspire others to get outside, too.

There's nothing better than falling asleep to crashing waves while shimmying into the sand to create the perfect sleeping body mold, only to wake up with the sun for a salty dip.

eco-friendly reterat in maui, hawaii

Our experience in Maui while glamping at the Maui Eco Retreat was nothing short of wonderful. Being a part of someone’s land and their efforts to create a sustainable and relaxing environment is both humbling and inspiring. We did as much as time allowed us, from swimming in the waterfall pools and eating delicious Thai food to sleeping in a comfortable bed listening to the bamboo rustle in the wind.

Glamping gives an elevated experience to camping while still holding on to the idea that being outside is better than being inside. Also, the glamping amenities did not go unnoticed to this camping couple! A hot shower, fresh eggs to cook in the morning, and a beautiful deck to lounge, read, and relax on were all welcomed aspects to what glamping has to offer.

What is one thing you will not forget about your stay in Maui?

Hopefully we will not forget a single moment from this trip, but if one would have to stick out, it would be skinny dipping in a jaw-dropping waterfall overlooking the ocean. It was cold, refreshing, and all to ourselves. I tell you, if you haven’t skinny dipped in a waterfall...you haven’t lived!

Meet Coco Bassey of Milenielle—fashion blog extraordinaire and newest member of the Glamping Hub community of global travelers. We can't get over Coco's recent stay at this beautiful elevated tree house in North Carolina, and we can bet you won't be able to either.

We asked Coco to sit down with us and share a bit more about her packing process, biggest glamping surprises, and plans for her future glamping getaways. Glampers, you can be sure this won't be her last trip to a tree house.

What three words would you use to describe your Glamping Hub stay?

Relaxing, Adventurous, Cozy.

*

A majestic view of [Sugar Creek Tree House](https://glampinghub.com/unitedstatesofamerica/southeast/northcarolina/greenmountain/tree-house-near-asheville/).
*

What are your packing essentials for every glamping trip?

Lots of water and snacks, bug spray, a camera, comfortable shoes, and weather-appropriate clothing! My phone died on me while I was on my trip, and having my laptop was a lifesaver...so definitely double down on backup technology if you can!

What are your main steps to planning a getaway?

Planning the trip: Do I need to rent a car? How long is the trip and what are my target times to arrive and depart?

Activities: What do I want to do during my trip, and what do I need to pack along with me (e.g. hiking shoes, camera, boots, cards, campfire essentials, a book, my laptop, etc.)?

Wardrobe: What do I need to pack to stay comfortable throughout my trip?

*

Food and Drink: Always pack lots of extra food and water. Even though our tree house had drinking water amenities, you never know when you'll need it in an emergency! Snacks are great for the road trip, and if there's a fire pit, s'mores are a must!

Tourism and Photography: Research your destination before you leave—are there any spots along the way that you want to stop and see? We popped into Asheville on our way home, and it was such a great opportunity to double our travel experience!

*

Do you prefer to travel in large groups, solo, or with a companion?

I love traveling with one or two people, but there's always something so relaxing about taking a day to break out and explore on my own!

What is your main piece of advice for travelers planning their first glamping stay?

It's always better to over-plan and over-pack! Especially when it comes to clothes, water, and food...you wanna be ready for anything.

The perfect nook to get some musical inspiration.
*

If you were to visit a glamping accommodation tomorrow, where and what type would it be?

I'd love to experience different regions, like a tropical beachfront bungalow in the summer or a winter cabin rental over the holidays.

What was the biggest surprise about your glamping stay?

I'm a city girl through and through, so of course, I had some negative presumptions about how rough it would be for me to step away from the hustle and bustle of my city life for a whole weekend! I'm so happy I tried it though—this Tree house had ALL of the amenities to make me feel right at home while providing the peace and quiet I was looking for during a quiet weekend getaway.

While helping her followers learn the best ways to dress to succeed, Titilola of Titi's Passion is giving us major glamping goals this spring!

Fresh off her very first glamping trip to one of Georgia's finest Airstream accommodations, we've learned two things. One? We need to make our way over to Ellijay stat because holy wow is Georgia b-e-a-utiful. And two, how about that breakfast provided by the hosts? Fresh fruits and farm eggs—yummy!

*

Don't miss a chance to get some great insider tips and find out all the reasons why glamping, Titilola-style, is the way to go.

What was the most memorable experience during your glamping getaway?

The most memorable experience during my glamping getaway was definitely being close to nature. I have never had this type of experience even though I have been camping in the past. Glamping gave me the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors in comfort. I also enjoyed that it was an opportunity for me to unplug from my norm.

*

What was the best surprise about your glamping site?

The best surprise about the glamping site was the service provided by our hosts. Jeffrey and Fabrizio provided exceptional customer service—from the bottle of wine they provided when we arrived to getting fresh farm eggs to cook for breakfast.

This [glamping property](https://glampinghub.com/unitedstatesofamerica/southeast/georgia/ellijay/tree-house-near-atlanta/) is ideal for any secluded getaway.
*

Where is your favorite destination to go glamping?

I went to Elijay, Georgia, for my glamping trip, which I love. It was my first experience glamping.

Where is your dream travel destination?

My dream travel destination is the Maldives.

What advice do you have for packing for a glamping getaway?

When packing for glamping my advice is to bring comfortable clothing, shoes, a good book and your sense of adventure.

Breakfast at the Airstream site in Ellijay, Georgia.*

This organic breakfast is giving off serious glamping goals.
*

What is your must-have when traveling?

My must have is definitely a good book. As a busy mom, it is sometimes hard to find time to open a book with so much to do, but travel is always a great time for me to get lost in a good book.

Feeding the llamas at the Airstream site in Ellijay, Georgia.*

The furry friends on site love giving glampers a cheerful hello.
*

Do you spend a lot of time planning your trips or are you more spontaneous once you arrive at your destination?

I am more of a planner when it comes to planning trips. I love looking up my destination to find out places to eat, sites to see, and where the locals are hanging out—that way I spend less time planning or asking questions once I am on my vacation and simply enjoy the time away from home.

Do you have your eye on another glamping site for the future? Where?

Yes I do, I am looking at glamping in Julian, California. I would love to experience California in a different way.

Blogger Spotlight: Amy

By Jessica Armstrong

Travel-obsessed fashion and lifestyle blogger Amy Marrieta is taking this summer by storm. When she isn't creating content for her blog and brand, she is custom designing silk scarves that we can't wait to get our hands on. And somehow Amy still made time earlier this summer to pop over to California to visit one of Glamping Hub's most secluded and out-of-this world accommodations.

We can't wait to see what glamping site she visits next. Check out how to glamp the right way with some stellar tips, accessories, and must-haves via the globe trotter herself.

What are your must-haves to bring on a glamping trip?

Sunnies, sunscreen, a Mophie charger just in case, and my A.M. CLUB silk scarves, because I'm constantly creating content and using them to tie up my hair.

How do your essentials differentiate depending on the area you’re glamping in?

Weather and convenience. Snacks are pretty important if there isn't food close by! I try to avoid being "hangry" at all times.

What do you do on the days leading up to your trip?

Lots of research. I'm obsessed with researching and planning—for some trips, I make Excel spreadsheets just to stay organized.

How do you prefer to travel to your destination and why?

It depends on where I'm going and how far. I always love a good road trip, but there have to be some stops along the way if it's a far one. I also love flying.

How do you research the accommodations amenities and features while preparing?

Google is my best friend when it comes to researching. I'll also check out tag locations on Instagram to see what other people post to understand the vibe.

What kind of events and activities do you plan before you arrive at the site?

It depends on the location. Joe and I like to try cool restaurants, jet ski, check out art installations or shows and go to beaches. We're not the biggest hikers but we do love to create, especially during sunset hours. He produces music, I write, we take photos and brainstorm ideas and plan—those types of things.

Which do you prefer: a daily itinerary or a go-with-the-flow game plan? Why?

I like to make a list and then each day when we wake up we decide, or maybe even the night before, so I guess kind of a mix. I'm a huge "to-do list" and "Post-it" person.

What is your top piece of advice for someone go glamping?

Research! Even if it's a last-minute trip, just do a little bit of research before so you know what to expect.

What are the five things you would never travel without?

Hmmmm, tricky. I'd say my phone, laptop, camera, toothpaste, and Joe.
