Luxury Tent + Hot Tub & Cold Plunge

10 sites · Lodging6 acres · Forest City, NC
Go luxury glamping in our backyard garden of Eden! Enjoy the wood-fired hot tub or relax by the fire in our peaceful oasis, located in the foothills of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. Collect farm-fresh eggs for breakfast, feed the ducks, and hold the chickens. Great hiking and adventuring nearby @ Lake Lure, Chimney Rock, Asheville & the Blue Ridge Parkway! You'll find new cedar flooring, a real king-size grounding bed and a great book collection. - Summary: Stay in one of 5 off-grid luxury glamping tents with private firepit and SHARED wood-fired hot tub & plunge pool, in the beautiful acreage behind our house. Electricity and charging spots in the commons areas. Beautiful outdoor kitchen with large gas grill, fridge and other amenities (read below). Off-grid means NO AC, so plan accordingly - we provide a small battery-powered fan to help you out, but if it’s hot outside, it’s hot in the tent! No whiners allowed. ;) Be sure to read each listing in its entirety for many more important details! - Sovereign Fireside Glampground currently has 7 unique stays available for guests. For your cooking needs we have everything you'll need in the outdoor common area kitchen, including a premium gas grill, refrigerator & freezer, kitchen sink, small cutting board, plastic utensils, plates, bowls, cups, large frying pan, cooking implements, standard coffee maker and coffee supplies, oil, salt & pepper, and aluminum foil. There is also power in the commons area to charge anything you bring. The bathhouse is about 100 feet from the tent and is outfitted with flush toilets, sinks and a hot shower. The bathhouse has two stalls and is not temperature controlled. Our communal spa area awaits you at anytime. It includes a cedar barrel wood-fired hot tub and cold plunge tub. Since the hot-tub is wood-fired, it heats the old fashioned way in about 2-3 hours. There are detailed instructions on how to light a fire and get the hot tub to temperature. All the wood and materials are provided. The cedar & smoke smell is SO worth the wait! Enjoy visiting with our chickens and ducks, who often free-range around the property. While you have plenty of space to yourselves, be aware that this property has MULTIPLE glamping sites. Expect the privacy of a normal campground, where you have your own space but other sites and our "caretaker residence" are within view. We live in the house at the front of the property, the glamping sites are in the 6 acres behind the house. You're more than welcome to bring your bikes, lawn games and other things you'd like to do. Outside of our property the towns and surrounding areas provide many activities for you to do. Hidden gem small-town charm in Forest City & Rutherfordton, as well as everything you could possibly need only 8 mins away (Starbucks, Walmart, Aldi, the works)! For some local fun, sip a latte at Small Town Coffee Roasters, treat yourself at Pie Safe Bakery, bike the Thermal Belt Trail, hike the Purple Martin Greenway, play pinball at Carolina Arcade, or enjoy a steak at Copper Penny Grill. Farther out, you can zip-line through the forest at Lake Lure, float/kayak the Rocky Broad river, rock-climb or hike to Chimney Rock, or tour many award-winning vineyards and wineries (some just minutes away). My husband and I (and our 5 children) live on site. This is typically a lively, family friendly space, so you may see and hear other guests and children playing. :) Our goal with this land is to create a place that embodies the things that we've found to truly make us happy and allow a better lives for ourselves. Like getting back to nature, living off the land, meditation, and inner healing. Eating whole real foods. Exercising and moving our bodies. Nourishing ourselves. And having a space to allow for community and connection. Our vision started a few years ago when my husband Aaron and I both shared an image of a new world we wanted to create - one filled with self-sufficient, sustainable communities where people live more simply and love each other. In 2014 we left our "normal" lives, hand-built a 100% off-grid tiny home together and lived in it for 5 years. We began to eat real food and use real resources - the land, animals, rain water, compost, solar. But as we spent more time diving into ourselves, God, business, coaches, and many other holistic practices, we realized it was time for a big change. We now want to be able to offer experiences sharing everything we've learned about all these things and have people come try new ways of life. When you stay with us the cool part is, you can know money is being put right back into improving this beautiful oasis and providing an outreach to the community. A large portion of what we make is going right back into this land. This isn't some fancy resort owned by a huge hotel chain. Although we do take serious pride in our work and go above and beyond when building. We've been told that staying here has been a very peaceful, rejuvenating, and relaxing experience. Inside your tent you'll find battery-powered string lights & lantern, one small battery-powered fan, and a small library of books. Firewood available for $5 a bundle, self-serve near the guest cottage. Cash jar or app pay w/ QR code. No smoking or vaping inside the tent, as there will be an extra $50 cleaning fee. You are welcome to bring your furry friend as long as they are registered in the booking, stay on a leash, and are well-behaved around other people and animals. If you have any questions about coming to stay with us please don't hesitate to reach out and ask! We're a Christian-owned, family-run business, and we're excited to host you! - Please park near the "guest parking" sign, in front of the house in the grass by the woods on the right. It's an easy walk to your tent. Walk to the right at the basketball hoop, past the bath house and hot tub. Follow the path lined with patio lights, and you will easily spot the Sarabi Tent in a secluded clearing. Access the communal spa any time (give yourself 2-3 hours to build the fire and wait for it to heat up, if it’s not already hot)! - Don't be deceived when you pull in - it looks like a normal house with a short driveway. All the magic is happening in the back. ;) Interaction with Guests We may or may not be available in person, but I am easily in touch by Airbnb message. - Please park in the parking area in front of the house, then feel free to walk to your tent and get settled in.
