About The Space

Luxury Glamping in an Authentic Safari Tent Amongst the Trees & Away from It All

When the grind of everyday life becomes too much, Foxfire awaits as a peaceful refuge. Wake up to birds filling the air with songs and the sun streaming through a lush canopy of trees. This fully equipped accommodation for four adults offers an elevated glamping experience complete with air conditioning and heat, Wi-Fi, flat screen TVs, a functional kitchen stocked full of essentials, and a washer and dryer. An outdoor grill and hot tub offer ultimate relaxation on your own private deck, so you won’t miss any creature comforts when escaping to this wooded oasis.

Living Room

The swanky open air living area is the perfect place to hang out and catch up over wine or settle in for a movie on the Smart TV. Patterned easy chairs and a butter-soft leather couch offer comfort along with an elegance you would never think possible in a tent. The ceiling fan with light provides a breeze on nights when the A/C isn’t needed and glass panel doors let the sun peek into the space and make it feel warm and inviting.

Kitchen & Dining 

Pops of red paired with sleek stainless steel transform this kitchen into something special. Our stainless-steel appliances make cooking and cleanup a breeze – from an indulgent late-night feast to an extravagant 3-course meal, you can whip up something special for any occasion. We provide everything needed to make your meals stand out, from cooking utensils to beautiful dinnerware and glassware.
Enjoy your meals at the high-top table that seats four, or dine under the stars at the dining set on your secluded private deck.
