Accommodation Description

· Kid-friendly · Pets allowed · Barbecue

This charming safari tent rental is situated near Springfield, Massachusetts, in the majestic Berkshire Mountains, offering glampers the benefits of both a secluded, woodland setting and convenient proximity to the city.

Inside the tent, glampers can rest their heads on a comfortable queen-size bed and cozy up together beside the wood-burning stove. For extra sleeping space, the hosts have provided a dome tent that guests can put up. Linens and pillows are kindly provided by the host. 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. Glampers will have access to a sun shower as well.

Outside, glampers will find a nice wooden deck furnished with Adirondack lounge chairs, as well as an inviting fire pit with camp benches. The property also has a barbecue grill and a picnic area, perfect for some rustic cooking and al fresco dining in the evenings. Read More
