Camping is one of the safest activities you can do this summer, and glamping just adds a nice layer of luxury to the experience.
A new glamping resort just opened on Mount Desert Island, ME, and it’s perfect for a socially distanced vacation. The Terramor Outdoor Resort, operated by Kampgrounds of America (KOA), is a 60-acre property located less than five miles from Acadia National Park and features 64 canvas tents, a lodge with a restaurant and bar, and lounge areas for guests to relax. While luxury and comfort are certainly centerstage — the tents have electricity and Wi-Fi — the resort also immerses guests in nature and provides a true outdoor experience.
The tents include a king-size bed, robes, slippers, towels, and lanterns. Families and groups of friends can even take advantage of the four-person, two-bedroom tents. Each tent also has a private fire pit and outdoor shower.
When you’re not enjoying the comforts of your tent, you can participate in outdoor yoga classes, fireside live music, cooking demonstrations, hiking, biking, fishing, bird-watching, kayaking, and stargazing lectures.
Whitney Scott, vice president of marketing for KOA, told Lonely Planet, “The resort was naturally designed to allow for social distancing. Our tents are spaced and are ample both inside and out, with enough space apart from each other to offer their own private fire pits and outdoor seating. This allows guests to connect with one another and immerse themselves in New England’s beautiful landscape.”
