Accommodation Description

  • Kid-friendly
  • Pets allowed
  • Barbecue
This rustic safari tent is tucked away on 100 acres near Big Indian Wilderness, New York, and offers the perfect opportunity for glampers to immerse themselves in the sublime natural beauty of this area. The tent comes with a comfortable queen-size bunk bed and a wood-burning stove and can accommodate four glampers.

During the cooler months, glampers can haul out their favorite novels and escape while the stove sets the mood. At night, the soothing sounds of nature will lull glampers to sleep while the rising sun over the creek makes for an inspiring start to the day. Every tent comes with a portable camp toilet, which is a wooden box with a seat that has a bucket inside. The hosts were inspired by the bathrooms on NASA spaceships when creating these camp toilets. Before use, guests must line the bucket with a CleanWaste bag that is provided by the hosts, or a similar plastic bag. After use, the bag must be tied up and placed in the trash. An outdoor sun shower is also available for guests to use.

In the morning, the deck is great for sipping on a fresh brew before heading out to explore the nearby hiking trails or fishing in Esopus Creek, just a few steps away. In the evening, glampers can whip up something delicious on the camp stove and grill and then gather around the fire pit and roast s’more beneath the starry night sky.
