In Bearsville, New York, is a glamping tent that puts all other glamping tents to shame. The scenic setup rests in the midst of a more than two acre, award-winning garden, which makes it the latest Airbnb worthy of our “Dream Rental” title. Take a look around the elevated camping setup with our host Kirby Porterfield in a new episode of House Beautiful‘s Dream Rentals series.
The tent—known as Glamping in Garden Paradise on Airbnb—is about 14 feet by 16 feet and exists on a property created by landscape architect and designer Gayle Burbank. Inside, you’ll find a queen-size bed and dresser. The space is equipped with a mini fridge and freezer, Weber charcoal grill, lighting, coffee, bath necessities, and Wi-Fi. A small table with seating allows for indoor dining. During cooler months, space heaters, endless blankets, and a heated mattress pad make the space extra cozy.
Outside of the sleeping area, there’s a table with chairs that’s perfect for getting work done or enjoying a meal. A fence surrounding the tent provides a bit of extra security—especially for anyone who wants to bring a pet along for the trip. And visitors should be comfortable with the outdoors: The rental’s bathroom consists of a private outhouse and a solar-powered shower covered only by the sky. Right around the corner from the tent is a fire pit with ample seating.

Guests can take advantage of the property’s other features further away from the tent, including the shared outdoor pool and screened-in gazebo. The large garden is ideal for roaming with a cup of coffee or tea in hand. What better way to appreciate nature than wandering through it? About 15 minutes away from the property is Cooper Lake, a perfect place to watch the sun set.
Porterfield, our host, rates this Airbnb 12 out of 12 solar-powered showers. It’s an idyllic place for a solo escape or getaway with a significant other. You can book a stay for a minimum of two nights at $225 per night. This rental is truly what glamping dreams are made of!
