  • Kid-friendly
  • Private Barbecue
This cozy lakeside bell tent can sleep up to four guests for an idyllic vacation of exploring forests and enjoying activities on the water. Set on the banks of North Twin Lake, Wisconsin, glampers can look forward to escaping the hustle and bustle of the city and get back into nature with activities such as hiking, biking, fishing, boating, and more.

Hidden in the trees, the bell tent features both a comfortable queen-size bed, as well as a full-size futon. The tent is also furnished with rugs, and a table and chairs to create a homey space. Outside, guests can enjoy their beautiful surroundings in the evenings by getting the firepit going, and relaxing on the deck chairs with a cool beer as the stars appear overhead. For some rustic, al fresco dining, there is a grill for glampers to enjoy.

The bell tent also offers guests some fantastic shared facilities. There are recently built bathroom facilities with showers, sinks, and private toilets. Additionally, there is an on-site store which provides essentials, as well as a communal lounge area with arcade games, sofas, and a large TV. The hosts can organize equipment rental, such as ATVs and snowmobiles, as well as fishing guides.

Outside the tent, the deck is home to a gas grill (tank included) and patio. It is also furnished with a picnic table and fire pit. Guests can enjoy nature, from the comfort of their own deck, without having to pack all their belongings!

The tent also comes with two optional upgrades. For an extra fee of $15 per night, guests can access basic electricity (i.e. for charging phones, laptops, fans, and other low-powered appliances.) Furthermore, for an extra fee of $15, guests can rent a portable heater for their entire stay. This rental includes one 1 lb propane canister and additional canisters are available for sale.

Pets are not permitted in the campgrounds to keep sounds to a minimum.

Set within the stunning Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest, Wisconsin, glampers will love this peaceful location. Perched on the banks of the Twin Lakes, the rental is nestled within 15 acres of quiet woodland, and is surrounded by virgin pines.

In addition to the sparkling waters of both North and South Twin Lakes, glampers will also be just a few minutes from 1,300 other lakes as well as as countless rivers and streams. With so many close by options for outdoor recreation, this is truly the ideal site for an unforgettable nature retreat.
