ONE OF THE MANY THINGS WE LOVE ABOUT GLAMPING, IS THE VARIETY OF STRUCTURES YOU CAN STAY IN. FROM YURTS, TO SAFARI TENTS, TO TREEHOUSES, TO GLASS IGLOOS…IT’S ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO RUN OUT OF OPTIONS.

HIGHLIGHTS INCLUDE A STAY IN A STYLISH A-FRAME, A DELICIOUS DINNER, AND A NEW GLAMPING RESORT LOCATED MINUTES AWAY FROM WINTER PARK SKI RESORT IN COLORADO. Location, location, location. I imagine these words were top of mind when Kyle Zeppelin decided to erect a new Glamptuary just minutes away from one of Colorado’s beloved ski resorts, Winter Park. Zeppelin Development’s new venture, located in what is referred to as “Old Town Winter Park,” is a stylish collection of A-Frame cabins situated on a beautiful 3-acre plot of land. Aptly named A-Frame Club (although there is no real club membersh ..read more

LOCATION - Pleasant Acres Reindeer Ranch - Alaska WINTER MEANS SOMETHING DIFFERENT DEPENDING ON WHERE YOU ARE ON PLANET EARTH. FOR SOME…IT MEANS HUNKERING DOWN AND WAITING FOR WARMER DAYS.

HIGHLIGHTS INCLUDE A STAY IN THE ROCKY MOUNTAINS AT AN ALTITUDE OF 10,800 FEET, AN EXCLUSIVE DINNER INSIDE A REMOTE COOKHOUSE, AND A BREATHTAKING CROSS-COUNTRY SKI ADVENTURE I can now check the box of visiting the highest altitude incorporated city in the United States. It’s called Leadville and it sits at 10,158 feet above sea level. I always try to push limits during our Glamptuary excursions and this trip would be no different. I wondered, is there a place to stay that’s a little higher? Answer = yes. About 642 feet higher. Our latest Glamptuary adventure placed us at Tennessee Pass Nordic ..read more

HIGHLIGHTS INCLUDE A STAY IN A HISTORIC MINING CABIN, LIVE MUSIC, AND LARGER THAN LIFE ART INSTALLATIONS THAT HAVE GRACED THE DESERT FLOOR OF BURNING MAN. Bobby and Bruce Wright, Co-Owner of Camp V, standing near The Pariah Express Our travels to Glamptuarys are always inspiring. Sometimes it’s the setting in nature. Sometimes it’s the animals on the property. Sometimes it’s the opportunities to learn. And in the case of Camp V located near the town of Naturita, CO, it was the art that left us feeling inspired and wanting more. I haven’t had the pleasure of experiencing Burning Man yet. I emp ..read more

HIGHLIGHTS INCLUDE A STAY IN A LUXURY SAFARI TENT, MOUNTAIN BIKING THROUGH BEAUTIFUL LANDSCAPES, CANYONEERING IN ANCIENT SLOT CANYONS, AND EXPERIENCING THE BREATHTAKING VIEWS IN MOAB, UTAH.

All of them are doing something really well. In some cases, they are doing multiple things really well. Every once in awhile, I have the privilege of staying at a Glamptuary that has mastered their blending of nature, glamping, adventure, education, l ..read more
