Luxury En Suite Bathroom Tent:+
- Rooms: 12
- Room View: Forest views
- Facilities: These luxury, prospector-style tents are the latest additions to the resort and are large enough to accommodate a family of up to five (with younger children). They each feature a king-size bed, full-size day-bed and a full en suite bathroom with underfloor heating, a flush toilet, indoor/outdoor double shower and a sink. The living area boasts touches such as a thermostatically controlled propane wood stove, antique furniture, opulent rugs, vintage china and silver accessories.
Deluxe Outpost Tent:+
- Rooms: 8
- Room View: Forest or river views
- Facilities: These are the resort's original tents and offer many of the facilities and amenities of the other guest tents - the main difference being that they don't have an en suite. Instead, guests have a private compostable toilet located just outside the tent and the exclusive use of a private shower in the nearby shower house (with hairdryer provided). The spacious, prospector-style tents are built on stilts along the river and into the forest, connected by a cedar boardwalk. Inside, you'll find queen-size or twin Adirondeck-style beds with luxury down duvets (Deluxe Family Tents feature a queen-size bed and full-size day-bed). The eight Deluxe Outpost Tents are styled in much the same way as the other tents at the resort, including antique furniture, opulent rugs, antique china and silver accessories. If you really wish to enjoy a 'Robinson Crusoe' experience, a Deluxe Outpost Tent is the one for you.
