{Bachelorette Ideas} Glamping

June 20th, 2012 | Posted by skirsner in Uncategorized

Your best friend would rather be hiking than shopping, she prefers a picnic to a trendy restaurant, and a spa day just isn’t her thing. As girly as she isn’t, she stills needs a Bachelorette party and you’re the one planning it. The solution? In a word…Glamping! Glamping, or glamorous camping, ranges from super rustic (no running water) to 4 star accommodations, all with a “great outdoors” appeal.

When it comes to Glamping, there are so many options, but I have narrowed it down to just a few. Take a look at what I consider to be the best options, then get your girls, ditch the make-up, and go!

Paycheck to Paycheck:

Costanoa is awesome because there are a variety of accommodations– from tent cabins to a more luxurious lodge. I’ve actually been to (& organized) a bachelorette party here and everyone had the best time! It’s also walking distance from the beach, which is always a bonus.

Carolina Heritage Outfitters  has Treehouses, need I say more? This definitely looks like the most rustic of all of the options, but there is room for 14 people and you have to canoe to get there. It looks like a real adventure!

A Little Splurge:

Mary Jane’s Farm has received rave reviews and the food is supposed to be amazing. They include an organic breakfast in the price of a night’s stay. The outdoor bathtub sold me! I definitely want to check this place out.

Camp Orenda is on a gorgeous lake and they offer a ton of activities from rock climbing to rafting. You’ve got the Adirondack Mountains and the Hudson River. They serve meals “fireside” and have canvas cabins.

Money To Burn:

El Capitan Canyon is near the gorgeous town of Santa Barbara and located on a beautiful creek. With yoga, massages, and plush bedding this really isn’t like camping at all, but you are staying in either a tent or cabin nestled in a grove of old oak trees.

Fireside Resort offers both tents and cabins, but you definitely won’t be “roughing it” here. Each cabin even has a cozy fireplace and goose down pillows and with the Tetons as a backdrop, you really can’t go wrong.
