We're Going Glamping!

Oh yes! You heard right. 

We're not going camping...we're going GLAMPING! Glamourous camping peeple - it exists and it's a thing. A seriously awesome thing.

I'll be travelling to our glampground at Long Point Eco-Adventures on the north shore of Lake Erie where I am hoping there will be a glampfire encrusted in Swarovski crystals for maximum glam factor (just kidding). 

Our Wilderness Suite will include a queen size bed, flush toilet, outdoor shower, electrical outlets and hot & cold water in our safari-style platform tent. I'll also be participating in some very cool adventures on-site including a zipline and canopy tour, observatory visit and dinner at a local inn and a winery. It's definitely a UNIQUE getaway idea from Toronto.

Okay, so this whole idea may seem ridiculous to those hard-core campers out there! But, it's a terrific halfway option between a cottage/luxury resort and camping. And the price-point is reasonable too. 

Growing up in a very traditional Chinese household, meant that I did not spend my summers cottaging or have memories of camping with the family. In fact, we kept our screen door tightly closed to keep the bugs out! Soooo, glamping is sort of the perfect baby step for me and I can't wait to spend the weekend being active with all the things to do at the resort.

  1. Wow, that looks awesome! How much do they charge?

  2. This looks pretty awesome! Love the outdoor shower! Have a great time & I can't wait to hear about it :)

  3. I think just the tent is around $200/night but cheaper in the fall if you're thinking of trying it out!
