The tent has a “fly” over it, for remarkably cool temperatures on warmer days and a completely waterproof exterior. At night, guests can zip up the canvas windows and doors, and stay cozy under handmade feather quilts. In September and October, this host adds an electric heater for extra warmth.
The bathhouse has a women’s and men's side, both with two toilets, a shower and a double vanity with glass vessel sinks. In the nearby barn, there is also a lovely new bathroom with a quaint claw foot tub where guests can enjoy a deep bath with lavender salts. The host will provide quality towels and soap.
There is a clothesline outside where hosts hang the sheets to dry so they get a fresh mountain smell. In the barn, there is a large country kitchen with individual refrigerators for each tent as well as several sinks, a stove, a microwave, a toaster, utensils, cutting boards, glasses and the basics for putting together a nice meal.
Outside glampers will have several charcoal grills and a gas grill and there is even a new all-natural cedar hot tub that guests can enjoy (additional costs may apply). This host also provides guests with jars of granola, cereal, coffee, tea, sugar and plenty more.
