Why Camp When You Can Glamp?

Some may call it anti-camping, but we here at Haute Living, we just call it luxury. Glamping, which stands for glamorous camping, is the perfect vacation option for those who love nature but don’t love roughing it. Long gone are the days of uncomfortable sleeping arrangements, insect-invested camp sites, and general lack of hygiene. The glamping craze is sweeping the nation, so here are a couple of Northern California locations to add to your to-do list.

Costanoa Coastal Lodge and Camp, Pescadero, CA

The bungalows at Costanoa are a relaxing, yet decadent way to spend a vacation. These tent cabins come in two sizes. They have smaller tents for up to two guests or you can reserve a family bungalow for parties of three or more. Though the bungalows are made of metal frames covered in canvas, they all include electricity, sliding windows and a locking door. Their restrooms, also known as comfort stations, feature indoor hot showers, heated concrete floors, a 24-hour dry sauna and an outdoor fireplace.
