Glamping For Two: Our Experience
K: Ever since our Big Bend camping experience last year, Brandon and I have wanted to try glamping (glamorous camping) for two. We felt like it might be more our speed and loved the idea of having running water, heat, and lighting available while being out in the wilderness. I reached out to Best Texas Travel in Seguin and they agreed to host us for a fun-filled weekend. If you missed it, be sure to check out our videos on Instagram Story and some of the many highlights of our time at Geronimo Creek Retreat.

B: I think that both Katherine and I were surprised at just how glamorous the set up was. We weren’t really sure what to expect but of course, we wanted the adventure. Our cabin was spotless when we arrived and all of the glamping tents on property are brand new. Unlike a very old lake house or cabin in the woods, these tents had zero cobwebs and zero bugs (a huge plus for Katherine who is terrified of spiders). They are truly perfect for those who love the outdoors, yet don’t want to commit to a weekend in a tiny tent built for one.
The glamping cabins sit on stilts, giving the perfect view of surrounding trees and the Geronimo creek. We loved being able to open our tent and step outside to the cool, morning air with coffee in hand. We took a slow start to our morning and waited for the fog to lift, making way for a day of sunshine and temperatures in the 70s.
K: Our glamping retreat really forced us to slow down and we totally embraced it. Even though the tents are equipped with Netflix and cable, we didn’t touch the TV once. Instead, Brandon and I opted for good old conversation, reading, games, and sitting by the fire. In fact, we’ll be talking all about our activities in a second part to this post on Friday so be sure to check back.
B: We were so surprised to find the cabins stocked with dishes, utensils, napkins, a microwave, and even a refrigerator. On top of that, there were extra blankets, and a day bed for lounging. We made sure to bring our own food, drinks, paper towels, ice, charcoal, flashlight, and smaller tools like a wine opener. If you’re looking to glamp and have questions on what to bring, shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’d be happy to tell you more or answer any questions.
