This Glamping Tent Airbnb Is Nestled Among an Acres-Long Garden

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.

This Airbnb in Bearsville, New York is a glamper’s dream. See inside the tent and around the property it’s on in 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.
