Glamping in your backyard or beyond

During the pandemic, we've all figured out creative ways to stay at home and stay entertained in Raleigh. So why not create a world close to home that feels like a vacation? 

That's how Glamp Raleigh got started. Michael Cutts said he's not a huge camper, but wanted to create fun experiences for family and friends to enjoy here in the Triangle. 

"I left the corporate world to start something new and create a new life and new memories with my wife and kids," he said in an email. 

"I’ve always wanted to start something for myself -- and always knew I would just didn’t know when. The current public health crisis just sped up that process. My parents bought us a tent when Covid-19 started to have something to do and we all loved using it."

Glamp Raleigh takes a basic tent up a few notches by creating glamping-type experiences in your own backyard, living room or beyond. 

Glamp Raleigh's services vary from an outdoor movie night with a projector, a date night glamping setup that sounds straight out of 'The Bachelor,' a family of four-sized glamping setup or an indoor camping themed night for kids.
