Wood and Canvas Tents
The wood and canvas tents provide a comfortable and cozy set up for your glamping adventure. Some tents are smaller and suitable for 2 people, others are larger and can hold up to 5. The wood frame is covered by a canvas top so you’re in a much more structured shelter than a tent. Plus you will have real beds inside! Some tents are more rustic with no outlets and battery powered lights, while some have a full kitchen and bathroom inside. Read up on the type of bathroom that comes with the tent. Some are a composting toilet, some are shared bathrooms, and some have private bathrooms. If you’re picky about your toilet situation, definitely splurge a little here so you’re comfortable.
The Wooden Chalets are suitable for larger families as they fit up to 6 people. They are made completely of wood so you have maximum comfort. They come equipped with 2 bedrooms, a bathroom, a kitchen, electricity, a wood stove, and a BBQ. This is the perfect way to enjoy nature in style!
If you’re wanting a bit more of a traditional camping experience, pitch your own tent at one of the campsites. They all have electrical hookups so you can still plug in and charge light appliances while you camp. Still slightly more luxurious than roughing it without a phone charger. They also have a shared bathroom on site so you can rest assured that you’ll be comfortable.
