Break out of the stuffy, germ-infested city and go "glamping," short for "glamorous camping." CLEAN & SANITIZED, NO CAMPING GEAR NECESSARY. Your 14x16 outfitters tent is furnished much like a hotel room, instead under canvas and the stars. The site has access to fresh well water, propane grill and firepit, private outhouse, and chairs. Just two miles from Monument and minutes away from Colorado Springs area attractions. You'll love "glamping"!

IMPORTANT NOTES:

!!! COLORADO WEATHER !!! The Colorado foothills can be iffy, so for non-summer months we relax our cancellation policy and include some extra upgrades. You may cancel within 24 hours to receive a full refund, and in the off chance that unpredictably bad weather forces you to leave, we will refund minus your cleaning fee. Free propane powers both a fire pit outside and a safe Portable Buddy Radiant Heater for the tent. Extra blankets are stocked to ensure cozy evenings, even if the temperature drops. If overnight temperatures drop below freezing, we will provide blue water containers for water as we will turn off the hose.

!!! COVID-19 !!! Due to the coronavirus, we’re taking extra care to disinfect frequently touched surfaces between reservations. We always super-clean the premises (wash bedding, clean privy, etc.), but we are taking extra steps to wiping down bedposts, tables, and chairs with disinfectant. Further preparation for your arrival can be done upon request.

!!! SHARED AREAS !!! Our 6.5-acre property has our house, two glamping sites, and several shared areas. The glamping tent, private privy, and deck area are YOURS, but shared spaces include the creek, zip line, trampoline, and tree house. Our children frequent these shared spaces, too, but they've been instructed to leave you to enjoy your glamping experience.

!!! NO PARTIES !!! Have fun, but "parties" are prohibited. We allow moderate drinking and tobacco smoking, but keep this outside the tent at all times. We are not 420 friendly (no marijuana allowed). Any extra guests must be granted written permission ahead of visiting. Quiet hours are from 10pm to 8am. Violators will be reported and may be asked to leave.

Your Space

* Tent. Davis Tent & Awning™ canvas hunting tent, 14'x16' size, set up upon a studded wood platform (not on dirt). A queen size bed welcomes you with two spring cots + sleeping bags for up to two guests (e.g. children). Two lamps on tables keep the tent well lit at night. A breakfast bar welcomes you with coffee maker and teapot along with complimentary coffee, tea and munchies. A powerstrip is ready for you to charge up your gadgets. 

* Deck. Chairs are set up for you and ready to use. A propane grill can be used for grilling (of course) but we include a cast-iron pan with utensils in case you want to fry something up. Running water comes from our homestead well (not city water!).

* Privy. A custom-built curtained outhouse with a Cabala's camp toilet with disposable bags to self-dispose. Toilet paper and freshener are stocked. A solar shower is available to use, much like a beach shower. If you really want to escape camping and get a private 10+ minute hot shower, a Pilot station is just a few miles drive to the Baptist Road exit on I-25.

Other details of your space include:

* Welcome basket includes some breakfast goodies and complimentary coffee.

* Camp kitchen includes propane grill (with free propane), pans, and utensils.

* Some paper products for cookouts (paper plates, paper towels, napkins).

* Clean and sanitary outhouse with clean camping toilet.

* Close parking within 20 feet of the campsite. 

* Carbon monoxide, smoke alarm, fire extinguisher, and first aid kit onsite and stocked.

* Electrical powerstrips in tent for fan, coffee pot, hot water kettle, lights, and chargers.

* Wi-fi in full operating condition plus full-bars from Verizon, Sprint and AT&T.

* Propane fire pit with lawn chairs.

* Creek on the property, waterfowl common, and wading in the water allowed.

* Mowed hiking trails on property through fields and to Monument Creek.

* Pets welcome! But we have a dog and outdoor cats, so they'll need to get along.

* One mile from Pike National Forest with hiking suggestions provided by owners.

* Public lakes within two miles (Monument Lake and Palmer Lake).

* Two miles from Monument restaurants, Walmart, and local attractions.

* Tons of tourist attractions short drive away.

Our stay was awesome, we felt every essential need was met. As well as the added comfort of non essential items included that really enhanced our experience. If you're looking for a worry free trip with an awe inspiring view. This is your location, the experience was both unique and healing. Great people, great conversation, great hospitality and beautiful surroundings. I want to thank our wonderful host once again :)

We really enjoyed our camping experience here. The view was gorgeous! We enjoyed seeing the deer and birds in the morning/evening. It was nice to have a private camp site without having campers right beside us like at a local campground site.

Wendy and Chris are wonderful hosts and have thought of everything you may desire in a glamping site including a beautiful view and private trails to walk on their land. The privy was private and stocked with toiletries. They provide a fire pit with plenty of wood. Chris and Wendy Made sure we had plenty of coffee and teas, paper plates, etc. They have several recommendations for places to visit and trails to hike.
They are also located close to town but far away enough to feel like your truly camping in the mountains.
We had a wonderful experience here in Monument Colorado, we didn't want to leave.

We really couldn't have asked for a better place or hosts.They have a small stream on their property and tons of lush flowers and vegetation Propane grill was a bonus Cooking up some breakfast

My husband and I spent to night here. We had a great time. Chris was very nice and greeted us when we arrived, helped us with some question and made us feel very welcome. The glamping site was very nice and quite relaxing. They had everything we needed and more. I would recomend this place to anyone looking to get away.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Chris and Wendy! We stayed for 5 nights - 2 of us in the tent and another pitched a tent nearby. The site has everything you could need, and if there happens to be something you do need that isn't already there, Chris and Wendy are quick to the rescue. Their site is super close to town for trips into town or exploring places like Garden of the Gods while being remote enough that you feel unplugged. The views were amazing, and having the creek nearby was breathtaking. Whether you are looking for a romantic get away, a glamping experience, or looking for a foot-in-the-door to camping, this is the place to go! It's the first time I've felt relaxed on a vacation. I didn't want to leave at the end of our stay!

Also - do spring for the cookout add-on! You won't be disappointed, trust me!

Every evening had gorgeous sun sets like this!Panoramic of Site 2 with the sun setKombucha that comes with the cook out add on. So tasty!Inside the tent of Site 2

We had a nice stay at Chris and Wendy’s place. They were very kind. The tent was right beside the house. We thought it was further away so it didn’t feel as private as we were hoping for. The amenities were good. For the price we would suggest a better washing station (small counter with wash basin if some kind) and a composting toilet. Overall it was a pleasant experience.
