Glemping, suitable for pets – this is one of the most relaxing and affordable vacations. Ideal if you hate bugs and rain and don’t own a tent. Don’t miss the fun. Here’s what you need to know about glamping with your pet.
What is Glamping Suitable for Pets?
So what is glamping suitable for pets?
Imagine all the best parts of camping – watching fireflies, cooking dinner on an open fire, seeing wildlife up close – but with a few extra amenities. And about half the work.
Instead of pitching a tent, fall into a soft bed. There is no need to hang a sun shower on a tree. Just enjoy a hot scrub in the modern bathroom. And all the time you save, there is more time you can spend having fun with your puppy.
Why glamping is perfect with pets
Listen, I don’t mind air-conditioned hotel rooms with great views and lots of amenities. But let’s face it, many hotels that accept pets require expensive pet fees. Or they don’t allow you to take advantage of all the fine amenities when you can’t leave your dog in your room or take him to the pool or spa.
The tent campsite is very suitable for pets. But you need to manage your dogs while setting up your tent (although the zipper can make the job a little easier).
On a recent pet-friendly glamping trip, I was able to toss my bag overnight on the bed and immediately start exploring Honey with my dog.
Wild Yough Glamping Huts
My dog, Honey, and I recently visited Wild Yough Glamping Huts in western Maryland. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was far more suitable for dogs than most of the state parks I’ve stayed in (especially in Maryland, which limits the number of campsites that allow dogs).
And I must admit – it is certainly better to sleep on the ground in a tent for comfort!
The Wild South has 5 huts arranged in the forest; each is named after a place the owners have visited. We stayed at Delta hut. Delta, as in the Okavango Delta in Botswana, where the owners camped for a few nights on their journey through Africa.
Depending on where you choose to go glamping, you may find that your accommodations have more or less amenities. The chalets in Wild Yough had no electricity, but each was stocked with battery-powered rechargeable lamps that we could plug into sockets in the camp pavilion.
Each hut here had comparable amenities, but the themed décor, including handmade bed linen, made each unit unique.
The Delta hut had a double bed and a sofa bed with plenty of pillows, blankets and blankets. The mini-kitchen included a propane stove with 2 burners and many utensils. (Skeptical of the website’s inventory, I brought a few kitchen items. I didn’t need them.)
The table and both chairs were ideal for playing cards or board games before bed. But we spent most of our time outside.
We had a cozy front porch with two chairs. And two folding camp chairs hung from brackets on the wall to sit around the campfire.
One of the things I liked most about our glamping experience was the bathroom and pavilion – a place to gather campers and a place to use shared amenities such as propane grills, books, board games, a corn hole set and a corn board. board.
We were happy to meet our fellow glampers and visit with their little ones.
The virgin bathroom had baskets full of toiletries and a charging station, so you can recharge your appliances while taking a shower.
And outside, I found the best dishwasher station I’ve ever seen in any campsite.
Sheaves of firewood were arranged nearby with a box of honor to pay.
Glamping At A Pet Paradise
Again, you can find different things to do where you go glamping, but we had a series of trails crossing the 350-acre! The rules stated that pets should remain on a leash within range of the huts and gazebo. But once you start walking, feel welcome to take off your puppy’s leash!
Professional advice- Make sure your dog remembers well before releasing him from the leash. Deer and chipmunks can provide a strong temptation for a dog with a strong desire to chase.
Since my puppy Honey had a bad leg at the time, we didn’t walk much. But she found the smells and wildlife very stimulating.
In fact, when I put her bed on the floor next to my bed, she tried to crawl into it before even hitting the floor. Rarely is she so ready to settle into bed.
Glamping as a basis for research
Glamping places suitable for pets make great base camps when you travel. One day we took a short tour of nearby Auckland. With a weekly farmers market, several restaurants and a vinyl record store, it ended up being a far more hyper-friendly place than I expected.
We also headed to Deep Creek Lake State Park and had a barbecue in the pet room, Archie’s. We even found the end of his homemade ice cream enjoying the picnic tables overlooking the lake. Yes, my dear.
If we were able to stay for a week, we would have enough time to walk all the trails and explore the surroundings without ending with things to do.
Try Glamping with your pet
Why should you try pet-friendly glamping with your pet?
It feels great to be outside and yet surrounded by comfort when you need a good night’s sleep. Sleeping in a wooden structure instead of a tent prolongs the season (and the propane heater in Wild Yough does that even more).
Glamping is available. You can cook over a campfire to save even more. Or look for the cuisine of nearby restaurants suitable for pets.
But the best part is that it’s fun to be surrounded by nature and enjoy the outdoors with your dog. Listening to birdsong and watching chipmunks peeking from the roots of trees is far more fun than most televisions. And it will be as rewarding for your pet as it is for you.
Thanks to Wild Yough for giving me two nights at their wonderful facilities. All opinions about Wild Yough are mine.
