The places and ways you can use your tent is almost limitless – let your imagination run wild! Harness the magic by creating:
A cozy apres-ski tent warming hut
An adventurous, functional tent treehouse
Unique guest or in-law lodging
Distinctive camping accommodations
Memorable dining for your farm, ranch or vineyard
A raised stilt tent lake cabin
Your own tent studio – spa, massage, art, yoga, and more
Luxurious camping in remote locations
Summer camp tent cabins full of happy kids in bunkbeds
Your own beachside tent cabin
Beyond imagining how to define your dream tent, think about your natural landscape too. Site it above landscape features like a waterfall or large boulders for a truly dramatic aesthetic.
Or keep it simple.
Either way, owning a Destination Tent will provide you with years of safe, reliable shelter at your Secret Creek.
What is a Tent?
We’re going to let you answer that question first because we’re guessing you probably already have an image in your mind…
Maybe you have memories from watching your grandparents struggle to “STAKE IT DOWN!” while the rain threatened to unleash upon your heads.
Perhaps you’re transported to nights around a campfire – the flames casting shadows onto your tent as someone strummed a popular sing-along tune.
It may be that you picture camouflage-green walls in a distant jungle, brightly-colored tech fabrics on a remote mountain-top, or slumber parties in your own back yard.
But the history of tents stretches far beyond these simple images and memories.
Did you know that archaeologists found tent ruins that date back as far as 40,000 B.C.?
In fact, tents have been part of the human psyche far longer than ceramic containers, agriculture and even wheels! So the image you have in your mind when you hear the word “tent” is generations upon generations of your ancient ancestors speaking to you too.
Over the millennia, various cultures wrapped their tents in mammoth hides, goat skins, and whatever furs and felts they were able to harvest from the animals they lived amongst. Eventually, modern technology innovated materials that were lighter weight and didn’t require animal sacrifice. But unlike the mammoth, the desire to have a portable, secure shelter that can accommodate many people and is aesthetically pleasing, has never gone extinct.
Destination Tents aren’t like tents from several millennia ago. They are modern and truly something to behold. Our ancient ancestors would be proud.
