Description of Glamping Units
This 725-square-foot, pet-friendly luxury accommodation can sleep two adults, a small child, and one pet maximum.

Complete with modern furniture and historic artwork, it’s the perfect space to cozy up with family, friends, or a significant other. The spacious, fully-equipped kitchen has a stove, a microwave, an oven, a refrigerator, a wine cooler, and more. Right next to the kitchen is the dining area with a dining table that can seat up to eight people.
Heading upstairs, glampers will find the master bedroom suite and the library, as well as a plush and spacious bathroom with a handmade bluestone soaking tub and a steam shower. There is also a gas fireplace and original vaulted ceilings in the bedroom. When there are more than two guests staying here, comfortable air mattresses will make up the rest of the sleeping area.
Out back, there is a tiny house sauna, which was formerly a playhouse for the host’s nieces that has been redone to hold a wood-fired, cedar-paneled Scandinavian sauna and a dressing room, which looks out onto WItten Pond. Glampers will also see the Moonhaw Exhibition Gallery and a private event space, also owned by the host, near the accommodation, although the utmost level of privacy is maintained between guests and visitors to the gallery.

Guests with pet allergies should be alert that this is a pet-friendly site. Although the accommodations are thoroughly cleaned after every stay so that no pet hair should be left behind, the potential does exist that trace allergens could still be in the air and/or could possibly affect highly-sensitive people.
Guests must note that this glamping site is not for parties; the accommodations are sacred, quiet places designed for people who seek serenity in nature, a spiritual quality to their getaway, and peace. During peak season (Memorial Day weekend through Columbus Day weekend), there is a three-night minimum stay. During regular season (the remainder of the calendar year), there is a two-night minimum stay.
Guests must also be aware that if there is any damage to the rental and/or any violation of the host's property agreement that results in a monetary loss, their credit card will be charged an additional amount up to $250 for immediate reparations. However, this does not preclude the host from pursuing reparations for amounts equal to damages greater than this security payment. Read More
