Description of Glamping Units
This glamping site in Maryland is quite unique. Each of the site’s four lovely hut have been inspired by a place that holds special meaning for the hosts. The hosts have lived through many experiences and adventures throughout the world, and they hope the same for glampers when they come to stay in these beautiful huts. Each hut is equipped with a double bed, as well as a pull-out bed that can also be used as additional seating. There is a cooking area with a stove and a dining table. Glampers will also find that the huts are equipped with LED lighting and a propane heater. Outside, each hut has comfortable chairs on the porch, a picnic table, and a grill.
Please find the huts, and their inspiration, described below.
Stanley Hut: This hut is named after Stanley, Idaho, which is a small, secluded town just three hours north of Boise. This small town is made up of less than 100 people, and it’s surrounded by more than seven million acres of stunning wilderness.
Cortina Hut: This hut was inspired by the Dolomite Mountains in northern Italy, and a well-known city in this region is Cortina d’Ampezzo, a lovely place to relax in luxury, spending the days hiking in the surrounding mountains, and retreating to a remote mountain hut.
Ardennes Hut: This hut was inspired by the Ardennes mountains in Belgium, where the hosts enjoyed the thick, dramatic pine-tree forests. In many ways, the Ardennes reminded them of western Maryland, and they felt quite at home while there.
Uzes Hut: This is the hosts’ personal favorite hut. It is located on a slope, and it truly gives off the impression that it’s located in a real mountain-top town, like Uzes, France, which is just the place that inspired the hut. During their time in Uzes, the hosts made memorable memories mixing culture, food, nature, hiking, and that beautiful southern sunshine.
There are additional tipis on site. Guests can rent them for an additional fee of $25 per night. Inside each tipi, guests will have three cots. Contact the host for further information on these tipis. Read More

- Bird watching
Considered to be a playground in the mountains, this property offers activities that are sure to delight the whole family. The photo scavenger hunt will get the little ones to enjoy nature and explore the wilderness. Children will also enjoy scouring the forest after hearing the story of Moeras the Leprechaun, who is said to roam the local woods. Glampers are recommended to bring a canoe, kayak, or inner tube to float along the river. The water has also proved exceptional for fishing, especially for small mouth bass. In addition, there are plenty of shallow parts for younger glampers to wade. The hiking trails will lead glampers to beautiful views and shaded creeks to spend a hot summer day. Other activities include bird and wildlife watching, biking, walking, local sightseeing and excursions, and photography.
