{glamping}

After having recently survived my own 'wilderness' adventure, happened upon an article in the LA Times about an emerging trend, "glamping" -- glamorous camping.

The Paws Up, a 37,000-acre resort in Montana, offers services such as a camp butler to build a fire, a maid to turn up your heated down comforter at nightfall and a cook to whip up bison rib-eye for dinner and French toast topped with huckleberries for breakfast. The cost is $595 a night plus an additional $110 per person per day for food. Another popular glamping destination is the Clayoquot Wilderness Resort on Vancouver Island, British Columbia.

I was exactly the same way, People St.Clair--probably the last person anyone would expect to even attempt camping, but ended up having a really nice time. Of course, I brought some comforts from home, such as my goosedown duvet :)

That looks amazing! I actually saw something similar to this during the week - there is a camp hotel in India which is part of the Aman group of resorts, it looks amazing...

Rustic and chic--I love it! It reminds me of Ralph Lauren's teepee he had built.

that's the only way I would camp. I'd have to call it glamping. I'm too much a creature who loves her comforts! ;)

Suzy, the camp hotel in India sounds great!

Brilliant, thanks for mentioning Ralph Lauren's teepee--haven't had a chance to check it out yet.

Franki, figured this would be pefect for you, since I know you're not fond of "roughing it" either :)
