Tent on Stilts with Twisty Slide!

Here’s something different: A tent erected atop a large covered porch, complete with a twisty slide to the fire pit and picnic table below!

This is, of course, no normal tent. The canvas structure is held up by beautiful wooden beams, and there’s a queen-sized bed and kids’ cot bunks inside meaning no one has to sleep on the floor. It’s off-grid, with a cooler, water bubbler and solar lights, giving you an excellent glamping experience.

What do you think? We actually saw a family who lived in a tent like this here.

Our “glamping” canvas tent is on a large wooden deck, which provides an abundance of space to enjoy the outdoors. The tent comes furnished with a queen bed (linens & towels provided), a cot-style bunk bed (please bring sleeping bags, pillows, etc), plenty of floor space for sleeping bags, basic camping cookware, and a propane camp stove. Enjoy a cup of fresh campfire peculated coffee each morning, along with the sweet goodies provided by your hosts! A fire ring is in front of the Glampsite for you to enjoy campfires (firewood available).

    I almost passed by this post ( just another glorified tent) But after reading and looking at the pictures . I am totally impressed! I would love to give this a try! And decent stairs too for those of us that dont do stairs or ladders as well as we used to. Well done! I love it!

    This is cool and looks comfy for staying a few days. I like it. Shower and toilet? Out house?

      They’re in the process of putting restrooms on the property but for now there’s port-a-pots and a private outdoor shower… While they already have potable running water…
