Hall County‘s (Georgia) first luxury glamping site featuring tents with queen-sized beds, mini-fridges, and Wi-Fi is being proposed to be built on a lakeside property in North Hall.
Paul and Ana Price are planning to build ten glamping tents and two cabins with access to Lake Lanier on 9.4 acres located at 3820 James Ed Road, a report said.
“It’s what you would expect at a nice hotel room,” Paul Price expressed.
Hall County planning documents show that the cabins would be about 700 square feet and tent sites would measure approximately 20 by 20 feet.
The project would also include a camp office where guests could check-in and purchase items. In addition, guests will be able to access the dock, storage facilities for recreational items, and hiking trails on the property.
“Each site will feature a safari-style tent on a wooden platform, a fire pit, a charcoal barbeque grill, and a covered area with picnic table and chairs,” documents state. All ten tents pair with ten “luxury outhouses” featuring toilets, sinks, and showers.
“Our plans are to retire on it,” Price said. “We learned about glamping … It’s really taken off because of the pandemic.”
Price estimated that tents could be rented for $150 to $225 per night. This kind of camping may not be popular with families and is ideal for couples who are celebrating a wedding anniversary or some other celebration, Price said.
The application will be presented to the Hall County Planning Commission on Tuesday, January 4. The commission can suggest approval or denial of the application. It will likely get an official decision from the Board of Commissioners in February.
Hall County only recently made requests for glamping sites possible.
