Week of August 19th, 2019 – Making Summer Camp Swanky - Architessa

These luxury tents and cabins are a far cry from the kid’s summer camps of yesteryear. Recently trendy cottage options like tiny houses and decorated semi-permanent tents are garnering some attention. Keep reading to see some summer camping options we think you’ll enjoy.

1. Luxury Standard

Glamping Slips Into the Mainstream, New York Times

Bringing all the comforts of a deluxe hotel into the great outdoors in the form of glamping is a fairly new venture for the hospitality industry, but it’s also been around since the 19th century in the form of wildlife safaris. With more than 800 glamping locations across the U.S. – this is one trend to watch.

2. Glamping at its Finest

OfficeUntitled creates comfy cabins and spacious clubhouse for luxury Oregon campground,dezeen

Our childhood summer camp didn’t have an indoor saltwater pool, fitness center, or televisions, but this OfficeUntitled luxury campground does! We are totally digging the industrial style featuring wood and metals – keeping the vibe close to nature.

3. Roughing It in Style

What’s Next: Tented Camps, Hospitality Design

Tented Camps are a new type of lodging that offers thrill-seekers a way to dig into exotic locales without sacrificing the comforts of a warm (and well-decorated) bed. Connecting with nature has never looked so good!

4. Taming the Wilderness

AutoCamp Yosemite is a glamping site in the California wilderness, dezeen

There are plenty of wood touches in this Yosemite resort that remind us of an elevated summer cabin. Guests can choose between Airstream trailers, tents and cabins – all updated with beautifully crafted décor.

5. Wooded and Wonderful

How to Decorate Your Home with Log Cabin Style,Architectural Digest

Part of the charm of wood cabins is that they pull from the landscapes around them to bring people closer to nature. Wood finishes, kitschy decorations, and rustic furniture all evoke the emotions you’d expect from a traditional log cabin.
