A Glamping Retreat, In The Smoky Mountains

Are the tents too hot in the summer?

Most guests find the summer temps under the forest canopy to be ideal sleeping       temps.  The days can be hot, but most guests tend to be out exploring during the heat of day. The tents are not in direct sunlight and sit along a ridgeline which helps keep temps quite cooler than in town.

A Note from Bryan and Christy:
We wanted our glamping experience be the best of both worlds.  We have disturbed nature as little as possible while pitching canvas tents upon a wooden platform covered with beautiful hardwood floors. The less we disturb nature, the better you can experience this pristine Smoky Mountain forest.  We imagined a backcountry campsite coupled with the most robust canvas tent and the most relaxing pillowtop mattress, something not ordinarily feasible. The trails have been cut by hand and materials brought in on our backs. No heavy machinery as that would leave too large a footprint.  The forest imposed its will on us, not the other way around. We are not a RV campground that decided to throw up a few tents side by side and outfit like a condo.  We have not crammed so many tents into a field as to resemble a civil war camp.  We have created a space for our guests to come, disconnect, and immerse themselves in nature while not sacrificing basic modern comforts.
