Be in nature and have all the comforts.

The space
Surprise your friends or family with a unique experience. Our place is perfect for celebrating anniversaries, creating fun family memories or just taking a weekend to get away.

Come and relax in the trees. Wake up to nature all around you and enjoy a slow morning as you sip on a cup of espresso while hanging out on the deck. During the day you can go explore all that the Des Moines area has to offer as we are located just minutes from downtown Des Moines. At night share stories around the fire.

You won't have to give up comfort while "camping". Get a good night's rest in the king size bed. Stay comfortable in the various Iowa seasons by adjusting the heat or air conditioning.

Running water at the nearby sink and shower means you don't have to give up cleanliness while camping. Sticky hands from roasting s'mores, no problem!

Other things to note:

We do not provide bath towels, so if you would like to enjoy the outdoor shower you will need to bring your own.

Wifi and TV are amenities in the tent. If you want to unplug, let us know before check in and we can turn off the wifi and remove the TV.

This tent is tucked into the trees on the 7 acre property where we live. Our house is out of sight when you're on the campsite. A short walk down a path and you will reach the tent where you will be immersed in the trees.

Since you are in the trees there will always be bugs. Bringing bug spray is a good idea.

Where you’ll be

Des Moines, Iowa, United States

We are in between Des Moines and Ankeny. We are surrounded by fields to the East and West. We have neighbors to the North and South but they are separated by space and trees.

It feels like you are in the country but you are close to all that the Des Moines metro has to offer.

We are an Iowa family who loves to travel. Our kids love to explore and stay at new places. We have a lot of flexibility in our schedule which allows us to go almost whenever we want.

We love Jesus and value the principles that he set forth for us. One of the favorite verses that we talk about a lot is one that our son learned when in preschool - "Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving one another, just as in Christ, God forgave you."

We love being outside. Hiking trails, going swimming or playing at parks would be the kids favorite activities.
