Safari Tent


About The Space

Upscale and Cozy Accommodations Adjacent to GSMNP in Stunning Canvas Safari Tent.

Tucked away in its own tranquil wooded oasis sits a fully-outfitted accommodation for two. It may technically be glamping, but Huckleberry is way more glamour than camping. With AC and heat, flat-screen TV, a full kitchen, gorgeous bathroom stocked with the fluffiest of towels, and a private deck with a grill and hot tub, you won’t feel like you’re missing out on anything when you leave behind the hustle and bustle of the daily grind.

Living Room

Enjoy relaxing evenings in the coziest of living rooms. The overstuffed easy chairs beckon to you to sit a spell and catch up on your favorite show, or just get lost in a good read. The space is open and inviting and full of natural light from the French door and windows. So sit back and relax, after all you’re on vacation!

Kitchen & Dining 

Whip up anything from a decadent midnight snack to a romantic 3-course meal in the full kitchen outfitted with sleek stainless steel appliances to make meal prep and clean up a snap. With a full-size fridge to hold all your groceries, a gas range with an oven, a microwave and dishwasher, we’ve got you covered for dining in.

Enjoy your meals at the high-top table that seats two, or head outside and soak in the romance of the warm glow of string lights while you dine on your private deck.

Bed & Bath

The cozy bedroom is the perfect spot for rest and relaxation. From the king-size bed with its plush sheets and soft blankets, to the small writing desk in the corner, this room has everything you need for a peaceful getaway. The warm tones of the walls and bedding create a restful atmosphere that helps you drift away into dreamland, while the natural light streaming in through the windows ensures you will rise feeling refreshed and renewed.

Have your very own spa day in the chic and modern bathroom with an oversized tiled walk-in shower with bench and a rain head, and a soaking tub! You definitely won’t feel like you’re roughing it once you see this luxurious space. Towels and basic toiletries are provided for our guests’ ultimate convenience.

Outdoor Sitting and Patio Areas

While the interior of this genuine safari tent is a dream come true, the outside is what makes this rental truly special. The roomy wrap-around deck is home to a hot tub, where you can soak away your stress under the moonlight, listening to the sounds of nature all around you. There is a handy propane grill for cooking up your favorite fare outdoors and there’s plenty of seating options, whether you want to dine al fresco or watch the sun come up with a steamy cup of coffee in hand.

We have many animals that call this area home and you may be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of deer, black bears, elk, or raccoons during your stay.

In the evenings, grab the marshmallows and practice your fire-making skills in the firepit to ward off the chill of an autumn evening. Gather around the warm glow with a glass of bubbly for a unique way to celebrate your special occasion and get lost gazing at the sky chock full of stars.
