Do you love the outdoors? Do you relax while listening to the wind through the trees? Do you have equally strong feelings about comfortable mattresses and plumbing? You are not alone. The combination of camping and comfortable amenities is the hottest trend in hospitality, combining camping and “glamour”- known as glamping. We hear a lot about travel trends, and it seems as if glamping is here to stay. When travelers are spending their hard-earned cash, they want unique experiences- not just another generic hotel room.
Firelight Camps, Ithaca, NY
At Colorado Yurt Company, we have been glamping for over 40 years; before it was a “trend” and before there was a word for it. Our yurts, tents and tipis are perfect structures to make you, your family, your guests and customers comfortable while staying close to nature.

Bathroom facilities can be in a centrally-located building, in a bathhouse yurt or inside each glamping yurt or tent. We have floor plans and photos showing different interior options.

As glamping spaces, each of our structures has different advantages and appeal.
Let’s talk yurts, first. Colorado Yurts are engineered structures that are intended to be left up year ‘round. They are watertight and the easiest of our structures to heat and cool. For glamping, yurts can have basic amenities such as cots, picnic tables and a woodstove. Or, many customers finish the interiors with luxurious furnishings rivaling high-end resorts. Colorado Yurts come in five sizes from 200 square feet to 706 square feet. The smallest yurt is great for a sleeping area, while our largest yurt can have a full kitchen, bathroom, living room and even a loft.

A Cimarron Tent is a great option for three season use, or year ‘round in mild climates. With the addition of a fly, they are nice, cozy spaces that you can furnish with quality furniture and bedding. You can add a stove pipe outlet, adding the warmth and ambiance of a wood stove inside the tent. Glamping is very popular with our tent customers. From resorts to campgrounds to remote mountain properties- our tents are perfect for guests who want to sleep in a comfortable bed, but also want to be close to nature.

There is nothing more romantic than a night in an Earthworks Tipis. When you wake to the morning light filtering through the canvas you’ll rise to a day unlike any other and you’ll be hooked on tipi glamping. The tipi is definitely the closest-to-nature structure we make. It’s perfect for the adventurous guest, and kids love it.
