Luxury Tents and Shelters a Ferry Ride from Manhattan

Governors Island in New York Harbor has long been known as a unique, historical destination. Now the 172-acre island has a glamping option that includes several beautiful tents and stylish shelters with views of the Statue of Liberty and Lower Manhattan.

Collective Governor’s Island features glamping tents and shelters for the ultimate NYC experience.

Accessed by ferry from downtown Manhattan, New York Governors Island is one of the city’s playgrounds. The island features parks, public art, historic buildings, kayaking, and special events. There is even a glamping resort with luxurious tents and shelters with million dollar views.

The Summit Tent option has access to a private bathroom.

Collective Governors Island by Collective Retreats features three types of glamping options. The Summit Tent is a bunk tent with a king bed or two single beds with down comforters. There is also electricity and a private bathroom. The Journey Tent is a bell-shaped tent with a queen bed or two single beds and luxury linens. The Journey Tent also has electricity and a shared bathroom.

The Outlook Shelter is a new glamping option on the island.

The elegant Outlook Shelter is a 300 square foot modern pre-fab. It has a king bed, couch, private bathroom and luxury linens. The shelter also has environmentally-friendly spa bath products, spa robes, and Turkish towels. This is glamping at the highest level and is not for a basic camping trip. The unique opportunity starts at $725 per night. The Journey tents start at $150 per night and the Summit Tents start at $500 per night. Collective Governors Island also offers a daily continental breakfast at its Three Peaks Lodge restaurant.

The shelter has a private bathroom and a deck with a million dollar view.

Collective Retreats offers luxury outdoor accommodations far from the typical hotel. Each retreat is located in an iconic destination and includes special amenities. Governor’s Island is the first retreat location, but more retreats are located in Upstate New York, Montana, Colorado and Texas.
