Glamping at Home in this Southwest Style TeePee

Tonya Prater, Owner

Are you itching to get outdoors but don’t have time to pack up for the weekend? Pick out a camping site at your house and give glamping at home a try.

I know it’s winter and glamping in your backyard may be the last thing on your mind. I get it. But, in my experience, it doesn’t hurt to plan ahead and gather materials so when warmer weather rolls around, you’re ready to hit the ground running. 

I seem to always have glamping on the brain so I collect things here and there so when Ohio’s winter is over, I can get straight to work planning a beautifully decorated tent for an at-home getaway.I especially loved how this southwest inspired teepee tent turned out.  Southwest style pillows, blankets and accessories

Glamping at Home

I love to travel. I mean, really love it. But there are times when we’ve been short on time, money and energy to travel far from home.

On those occasions, it’s nice to know you can go glamping in your backyard and feel like you've escaped somewhere really special.

Our first DIY backyard glamping experience was wonderful but honestly, who has time to build a glamping tent every time they want to camp? Not I! Or I guess I should say my husband since he built it last time. 

We needed an alternative and as soon as I spotted this tent the creative juices began to flow. On a whim, I bought the tent and set out to create a memorable and romantic glamping experience in our woods. I couldn’t have been more pleased with the finished product!

You could easily recreate this or something similar at your house for a couples getaway, a self-care retreat, or as a fun family outing. Zip up the tent and it feels like you're a million miles away from home.

I've gathered a list of all the items that I used, as I ordered quite a few from Amazon. If I couldn't find the exact item, I found a few alternatives but keep in mind as far as accessories go, look around your house and incorporate some of them in your design to save money.

I know glamping can be a bit of work when you’re pulling it together yourself. If you’re not the type to enjoy the design and decorating process, you may prefer to seek out rental options like these treehouses in Ohio and here are some other really unique spots
