Imagine staying at the magic tent from Harry Potter series during the Quidditch World Cup. Only it’s magic-less. That’s how it would feel to stay at the Gatherwild Ranch in Germantown. Each of the yurt-style tents has a queen-size bed and two extra beds for kids (at additional cost). Go unplugged at this place and live a simple life among nature complete with composting toilet and solar shower. Gatherwild Ranch will give you a different kind of experience. Since the place has no electricity, you can enjoy a night barbecue while looking up to admire the blanket of stars in the sky at night.

Experience staying at a camp in the woods, with a touch of glamour inside the tent. It’s an adventure from the very start, as soon as you arrive in the area. Set the fire pit up at night to cook some food and store your food and drinks in the cooler box provided. The atmosphere is very serene and tranquil around the camping area, especially at night. It feels like a magical place that’s completely unattached from the hectic life you live every day.

The property has two tents that can be rented, the Bluebird and the Cardinal. They will be perfect places for a double camping date with your partner and other couple friends. You will have the area for yourself and enjoy all the facilities provided, from a barbecue and chiminea that will provide warmth for you in the evening and night. Make sure you won’t miss out on the sunsets every afternoon, as they will curiously look different each night. The camping area is also near a walking path that will take you to the heart of the city in a short time.

This is a glamorous tipi tent in Roxbury that will give you an exciting experience being closer to nature. With its unconventional design, you will feel right at home in an instant. The camping shower that’s located adjacent to the tipi tent is complete with a wash station and composting toilet. Since the weather can be quite chilly at night, including during summer days, the tipi is equipped with an indoor fire pit that will warm the entire tent. In winter, a wood-burning chimenea is added inside the tent to make it comfortable for the guests to relax and sleep. Since there is no electricity in the area, as the night comes, the open roof of the tipi will give you the view of the beautiful night sky.
