      Elegant tent glamping, warm and inviting offers a lovely relaxing time. The tent is off the grid, spacious, light and airy. A comfy bed with the soft night noises of crickets and bullfrogs will lull you to sleep. In the morning a riot of bird songs will greet you. The tent is set on twenty acres of private land with forests. The tent space includes almost an acre of land in an open yet private setting next to the forest on a grassy area overlooking a pasture.  In the distance there is picturesque barn with an orchard. 

       There is a nearby shade tent that offers a lovely sitting space for reading, cooking, eating, or practicing yoga. The outdoor kitchen has a propane griddle which is perfect for cooking your morning pancakes, or evening burgers. Pots, coffee pot, silverware, plates, three gallons of potable water and utensils are also provided. A small privacy tent contains a composting toilet.

     There is plenty to do in the area.  If you are looking for small town life Fennville is a great fit.  It hosts the homey, Root Cafe, with its art gallery, and upscale Salt of the Earth restaurant. Saugatuck Dunes State Park has hiking trails, beaches, and a historic home, the Felt Mansion. Saugatuck and Douglass both have lovely art galleries, cute downtowns,, a marinas, and delicious restaurants.  The Blue Coast artist studios and wineries are sprinkled across the county. The big city of Holland is twenty minutes north and has Windmill Island, Dutch Village, a cute downtown, craft beers, and beaches as well.  

   This tent accommodates two adults comfortably. Contact me about bringing children No pets or overnight guests are allowed. With the pandemic many stores and area attractions are closed. All surfaces will be disinfected between guests.

Pros: Tent is beautiful. Bed is VERY comfy. The propane griddle in the separate “kitchen” tent was a nice bonus. We were wishing we brought pancake batter! Decor is so cute, and there are lots of extra blankets and pillows, they even provided coffee. The compost toilet and sink was very nice, everything was clean and well equipped. They provided a fire pit with a small amount of wood, and there is a lot more on the grounds for cutting (bring a hand saw). The location in southwest Michigan is fantastic, lots of little farms and breweries and wineries! There is a cheese farm right around the corner (Evergreen lane Creamery) and a cute lavender farm near Saugatuck (Summerhouse Lavender farm). We had a blast picking strawberries and touring around.

Cons: it seems the tent, while definitely waterproof, still has some openings somewhere near the ground because a lot of bugs (ants, spiders, ticks) still found their way in. Setting is not quite as remote/private as anticipated (but still better than a campground): there is another single campsite nearby that shares the toilet facilities, and a couple houses nearby in the woods which can’t be seen, but are definitely heard (one was having a drum circle late into the evening, another seemed to have a shooting range). Check in was a bit hectic: we notified Sandy in the morning on the day of check in that we would arrive around 4pm (check in begins at 2). We got a call when were were about 30 min away saying it wouldn’t be ready until 5:30. So we rolled with it, stalled and showed up at 5:45 but Sandy was still cleaning. The tent and restroom weren’t actually ready for us until about 7.

Overall: recommend for people used to regular camping and want a real bed for a night and to be a bit spoiled. Not a great option for high maintenance types afraid of bugs.

Hi Rachael, I am very sorry about the poor check in. It is not the usual way, but it did happen this one time. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay though.

Loved it! Highly recommend.

Two slight logistics issues - it was unclear where we were supposed to refill our water jug. So we took one from another site, but if that had been occupied, we wouldn’t have been able to do that. Additionally, our propane canister ran out, which was an inconvenience, but quickly resolved.

Loved the view, the tents, and the quiet. We had our kids there - 5 and 3 - and after they calmed down about the excitement of the super cool tent, they were great. So, it works for families. It would be a great place to get away without them too.
