Be in nature and have all the comforts. 

Surprise your friends or family with a unique experience. Our place is perfect for celebrating anniversaries, creating fun family memories or just taking a weekend to get away.

Come and relax in the trees. Wake up to nature all around you and enjoy a slow morning as you sip on a cup of espresso while hanging out on the deck. During the day you can go explore all that the Des Moines area has to offer as we are located just minutes from downtown Des Moines.

At night share stories around the fire.You won't have to give up comfort while "camping". Get a good night's rest in the king size bed. Stay comfortable in the various Iowa seasons by adjusting the heat or air conditioning.

Running water at the nearby sink and shower means you don't have to give up cleanliness while camping. Sticky hands from roasting s'mores, no problem!

Inside the Tent:

- King size bed. All bedding is provided.

- Couch folds into twin size bed. Bedding provided.

- Air conditioning & heat- Small refrigerator

- Nespresso machine with pods

Other things to note:

We do not provide bath towels, so if you would like to enjoy the outdoor shower you will need to bring your own.

Wifi and TV are amenities in the tent. If you want to unplug, let us know before check in and we can turn off the wifi and remove the TV.

This tent is tucked into the trees on the 7 acre property where we live. Our house is out of sight when you're on the campsite. A short walk down a path and you will reach the tent where you will be immersed in the trees.

Since you are in the trees there will always be bugs. Bringing bug spray is a good idea.

The tent was wonderful! Very clean and homey. The king size bed was very comfortable! The location is so nice and convenient to town (just a bit noisy from traffic at bed time) The view from the front of the tent made to feel like we were in a tree house and the curvy trees were beautiful.

We had a wonderful time! My favorite part was the glorious outdoor shower ❤️. Very relaxing and private place in nature and also close to downtown Des Moines. Thanks for a great little getaway for my husband and myself!
