What better way to celebrate the official start of summer than with a post about camping tents? Now, these are not ordinary tents, but fully equipped, elevated bunk tents located on private campsites. They are also the brainchild of investment banker Michael D’Agostino who wanted to create a different camping option for busy urbanites.
Tentrr offers fully equipped bunk tents with some great views.
Tentrr is an app that allows user to search for and book luxury glamping tents on private land for a quiet getaway. The tents include a queen sized air mattress, bedding, lights, wooden deck, Adirondack chairs, water container, a camp toilet and solar shower, grills, a fire pit, wood stove, and an outdoor picnic table. A dry storage box, called the CampBox, is available for food. Many of the sites are dog-friendly.
Each tent has a bed, lighting, heat and access to an outdoor grill for cooking.
The CampBox is a modular dry food box/picnic table setup.
The app allows users to search for tents near certain features or activities including views or forest and kayaking or mountain biking. Seclusion ranges from “right nearby” to “zombie proof.” Currently, Tentrr is only available on the Atlantic Coast, but additional locations are in the works.
Landowners can have a Tentrr system set up on their property.
Landowners who are interested in having a Tentrr tent set up in their yard can contact the company. A scout will check that the property has the required details like privacy, views and access to roads and activities without road or city noise.
Tentrr is also available in the winter.
Tentrr charges the landowner a one-time fee of $1,500 to have the tent and amenities set up and to joint the app. Landowners then receive 80 percent of the revenue generated by a reservation to their site. Tentrr also supplies the tools to manage a campsite, including booking control and proprietary guest messaging app, and handle maintenance issues. The tent rates range between $75-$135 per night.
