The ultimate in rustic chic glamping is Spirit Bear TeePee at Eagles Nest! Experience the mountains like never before. Lay back and watch the stars from your seat beside the campfire. Make dinner over the outside wood firepit or at the gas grill, and roast marshmallows after dinner (cooking essentials provided). When it's time for bed, hunker down in the TeePee's main room with a Queen bed and two Twin beds and a glass & propane firepit. Washing up is a breeze in the unique bathhouse a short walk away from the TeePee, made of boulders and reclaimed barnwood, with a shower and art glass sink.
Staying out here in a TeePee doesn't mean you're giving up all creature comforts, though. Spirit Bear TeePee comes equipped with a coffeemaker, mini-fridge inside, Yeti cooler for food storage (bring ice!), space heaters for the chillier nights, fans for the warmer evenings, and WiFi.What Should I Bring?
