Luxury Camping is super popular and for good reason! Huttopia in the White Mountains of New Hampshire is the perfect spot to get into nature, without losing all the amenities you love! This post has been sponsored by Huttopia, however, all opinions are my own. #ad #Huttopia #MonHuttopia #
I love nature. I love cooking outdoors. I love swimming. I do not love sleeping on the ground, and hunting around for a place to relieve myself safely. Ahem. After reading discovering Huttopia’s first US location in the White Mountains while visiting BostonMagazine.com, I knew this luxury camping experience was the perfect family vacation for us.
When we arrived, I knew we had a winner all around. The kids peeped behind every door and into all the nooks exclaiming “This is awesome!” and “Look over here!”
What is Glamping?
Glamping is like camping… and yet it is a world away. Imagine getting away to amazing places in nature, but then having access to all kinds of amenities. That’s glamping. “A fusion of glamour and camping, glamping is a way to authentically experience the most awe-inspiring locales around the world.”(source)
Luxury Camping at Huttopia’s Chalet
The gorgeous wooden Chalet sleeps up 6 people and is perfect for those that love nature and comfort. Each cabin includes a bedroom with a queen bed on the first floor, a living area with a sofa bed, wood stove, dining area, and bathroom with shower, toilet and sink.
There’s even a kitchen area with sink, gas cooker, microwave oven, refrigerator, coffee maker an even a dishwasher! On the second floor, there’s a bedroom with two twin beds, and a mezzanine area that’s perfect for storing your suitcases or other gear.
The outdoor area includes a covered wooden porch with a picnic table and fire pit. We grilled hot dogs and roasted s’mores and had a wonderful night just enjoying one another’s company. Later that night, rain poured down on the tin roof and lulled us to asleep. No soggy sleeping bags here, we were cozy in our little chalet cabin. It rained all the next day and we spent time playing games, checking out the Lodge Tent and playing tourist in the North Conway area. We even used the little fireplace!

One of my favorite activities was canoeing on Lake Iona. Huttopia has a private beach for guests where you can swim, fish or build sandcastles. Canoe rentals are $15 per hour or $35 for a half day. They also have paddle boards $12 per hour for adults and $8 an hour for children.
Where to Visit in the White Mountains
