Set just a short drive from Poughkeepsie, New York, this lovely glamping tent rental can be found on the border of an abandoned zoo and is a great choice for a romantic getaway. There is space to sleep two guests inside as the rental is fitted with a queen-size bed, with linens available to hire. 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. There is also a sun shower at the property available for guests to use.

Guests will be able to get cozy in the rental as it is beautifully furnished and features a wood-burning stove to ensure that couples are kept toasty warm. The tent opens out onto a spacious deck area that is furnished with Adirondack chairs for sitting out in the sunshine.
