Glamping is on the Rise!
So what is “glamping” anyway? Basically, the word glamping means just what it sounds like! Take camping, and add a dash of glam. For us, that means all the fun of being out in the woods, roasting marshmallows, and sleeping in rustic cabins. But where does the “glam” come in? Well, our rustic cabins are fully equipped with kitchens, Wifi, queen or king sized beds, full bathrooms, and tons of other great amenities. Many of them even have jacuzzis!
Also becoming popular again: hiking, trekking, exploring, kayaking, mountain climbing, paddle boarding, cycling and so much more. But a new trend makes communing with nature even more attractive to would-be explorers.
The New Camping Alternative
What if after you’ve spent the day happily wandering hiking trails, identifying animal tracks and wildflowers while taking in the stark beauty of the Vermont mountains; or paddling a kayak lazily down a crystal clear river, you didn’t have to pitch a too-small tent and unroll a lumpy sleeping bag? What if, instead, you could take a refreshing shower in your cabin tucked in the woods. Pop the cork on a bottle of wine on your private porch, ward off the nights’ chill at your fire pit, stare up at the sky filled with glistening stars, relish in the new memories of your days’ adventure, and then retire to the comfort of your bed with clean, fresh linens. The movement is referred to as “glamping” (short for “glamorous camping”) or “cabineering”, and at Sterling Ridge Resort and Log Cabins, we’re way ahead of the trend!
