Jordan and Brian's Glamping Adventure

Jordan and Brian go glamping
Meet Brian and Jordan, the stars of our Valentine's Day story!

Jordan: I've worked professionally in the corporate event and travel industry for the past five years, based out of Atlanta, Georgia. Last August, I was scheduled to have a business trip to Denver, Colorado, so my boyfriend, Brian, and I decided to take advantage of this by extending my stay and using the extra time to take a much-needed vacation!

We knew from the start that, where ever we ended up staying, this was going to be a special trip. Brian is a super-nervous flyer and hadn't actually boarded a plane in over 10 years! So we were ready to make sure that this trip was one that we wouldn't quickly forget.

In the end, Brian agreed to fly from our home in Atlanta to Denver, where he'd meet me at my office so that we could begin our journey together. The only thing left to was find a special place to enjoy our adventure together! After plenty of research, and by pinging ideas off of the rest of my travel agency colleagues, we stumbled upon Glamping Hub.

We were looking for an adventurous and unique accommodation that would still allow us the luxury amenities that we're used to from our previous travels. Much to our surprise, after a brief search through Glamping Hub's listings, we quickly found "the one."

Jordan and Brian decided to book their glamping adventure at this stunning safari tent near the Arapaho National Forest in Colorado.

Booking our safari tent overlooking the Arapaho National Forest through Glamping Hub was seamless. Everything fell perfectly into place. We submitted our booking request, and a few emails later, our trip was officially confirmed and ready to go! Our spectacular host for our stay, Emily, reached out to us immediately after we'd submitted our booking, via the Glamping Hub site.

She welcomed us, welcomed our questions, and welcomed any requests we may have had, as well! Being a travel agent, I, of course, requested a few things to enhance our trip. Little did I know, however, that Brian had a few special requests of his own that he kept secret from me during our booking process!

Here's a snippet of Jordan and Brian's review of their stay in Colorado:
The photos and descriptions of this beautiful ranch, however accurate, don't even begin to do it justice! This property is absolutely stunning—a must-see! Right near the foothills of Rocky Mountain National Park, the safari tent is located at the end of a dirt road that follows alongside the most scenic lake we have ever seen! The ranch is remote, intimate, and postcard-worthy.


Once we arrived at the glamping site, we were greeted by our hosts and other excited guests, all with big smiles on their faces! I was thinking to myself, "People in Colorado have even more hospitality than us southerners!" I later discovered that they were all in on the big surprise that Brian had in store for me.

After checking into the ranch, we made our way up the dirt road that hugs a beautiful lake before winding its way through the foothills of the Rocky Mountains to the door of our beautiful accommodation. There stood our safari tent, accompanied by our own private deck and fire pit, overlooking the property's private lake!

Our glamping adventure had just begun, and already it was a fantastic experience. We were immersed in one of the most beautiful places in the world, in a one-of-a-kind accommodation. I already knew this trip was more special than the rest. What I didn't know, however, was that there was a surprise waiting for me beyond the zipper of our tent. What I found inside changed my life forever!

The tent was decorated with rose petals, lit by the warm, flickering glow of plenty of candles, and quickly became flooded by my tears! In the center of the room, upon the bed, sat a sign that read "Will You Marry Me?" I was stunned! I couldn't believe how beautiful this moment was. I also couldn’t believe that Brian and everyone at the glamping site (who were complete strangers) had come together to make all of this possible. This was a dream come true. And, after I composed myself, I SAID YES!

We truly are forever grateful to Glamping Hub, as well as Emily and the other fantastic hosts at our Colorado glamping experience for helping us get to our "Happily Ever After." This spectacular place now has such a special spot in our hearts—we can't wait to return for our anniversaries!

The engagement ring!

Thanks to Jordan and Brian for sharing that story with our Glamping Hub community—we wish them all the luck in the world!
