Glamping vs. Camping
Article: Cove Communities Blog
Camping can be a cringe-worthy term for some; it brings images of trying to put a complicated tent together, sleeping on the cold hard ground, or the endless search for a reasonable place to use the restroom. For these people, these stressors outweigh the benefits of being surrounded by nature’s pure unadulterated beauty. Thankfully there is a new wave of tent camping that includes Egyptian thread count sheets, modern furnishings, and oh yes: indoor plumbing. You get to indulge in the same services you would receive in a 5-star hotel, set in an idyllic wilderness.
History of Glamping
Glamping is a concept that blossomed with the trend of ecotourism and experience-centered travel. When you break down the word, you arrive at its origin: glamour meets camping. All the amenities and comforts are still afforded to you in a luxurious setting – yet you are dozing off beneath a canvas tent and the great outdoors is one screened door of separation away. This truly unique travel experience has grown exponentially on a worldwide basis and now includes various styles of abodes and varying degrees of luxury.
Are you seeking a deeper sense of connection to the world around you? You wouldn’t be alone in this. People crave an experience that tells a bigger story: one that reminds us of where we came from and lets us escape where we currently are. When you glamp, expect to be surrounded by a stunning natural landscape without having to “rough it”. Enter: tent structures set in a beautiful landscape.
Now you can glamp within the natural beauty surrounding Point Sebago Resort in Maine. There will be four charming styles that will be sure to resonate with your adventure-traveler spirit.
