Description of Glamping Units

These glamping tipis, all 22 feet in diameter, can sleep up to four people in king-size beds. There are three tipis to choose from: the Blue Tipi, the Red Tipi and the Gold Tipi. They all offer similar amenities, but differ in size. See their specific capacities listed below.

Blue Tipi: This tipi can accommodate up to two guests.

Red Tipi: This tipi can accommodate up to three guests.

Gold Tipi: This tipi is the largest of the three and can accommodate up to four guests.

Outfitted with all the comforts of home, these luxury accommodations have heated mattress pads in the winter. In the summer, the tipis are air-cooled. Inside the accommodation, there are Turkish rugs covering the floor and comfortable furniture, too. Each one has its own private, exterior sitting area. Lanterns and candles are provided to illuminate guests' way around the property once dark out.

Glampers will have 24-hour access to the historic cottage that houses the shared bathrooms, as well as the games and books, which are available for anyone to enjoy. The bathrooms have toilets, sinks, and showers with hot water, along with complimentary shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, and extra towels. Extra blankets and pillows are also available upon request.

    Tecopa is rich in history and full of offbeat character. The rough-hewn charm of the desert transports glampers to another world, where the sand has a magical way of restoring the soul, sending guests home refreshed and renewed. Drive past wizened and weathered limestone formations to where the road ends, and guests will find themselves in the Armagosa Canyon, where deluxe tipis are the perfect accommodation for a truly unique getaway.

    Featuring plush beds, these authentic, canvas tipis offer rustic luxury with an eye for style. Just steps from the accommodation's front door, a trailhead provides access to the spectacular Amargosa Canyon with its teeming wealth of birds and wildlife, fun for both couples, families, and individuals.

It is the perfect venue for disconnecting. Here there is no cellular coverage, no television, and no internet, just the natural world. It doesn't take long here to reconnect with oneself, friends and family, and the natural world. Cynthia (host) hosts organizational events, small intimate weddings, geology field camps, family reunions, women's retreats, couples, families, and individuals.

    The surrounding desert offers vast open lands that guests can explore at their own pace and in their own way. There are adventures and discoveries for the eco-traveler, whether interested in birding, hiking, soaking in the nearby hot springs, stargazing, or simply relaxing and taking in the views. This site is perfect for nature lovers and hiking aficionados. The glamping site's host has a huge wealth of knowledge about the surrounding area, and she’s more than willing to show glampers the secret gems and teach them about the site’s precious land.

    The private, lush, green oasis that is the site for the tipis is so unique—it may be the only one like it in the Mojave Desert. The owner stresses that this is a place for respecting the land. It’s a place for connecting with it and enjoying time with loved ones outdoors. She can share all of her local secrets with guests, but she asks that they come prepared for this unique site, which has no cell phone service or nearby grocery stores.
