Leave your tents and sleeping bags at home as Huttopia (Southern Maine) reopens its glampground on Sand Pond Road this May.

According to a report, when you go glamping at Huttopia, you can take pleasure in all the perks that camping offers – roasting marshmallows over a campfire, swimming in a pond, walking along trails – while at the same time enjoying the kind of luxury and comfort typically found in a hotel.

The Sanford site was opened at 149 Sand Pond during the summer of 2019. It gained popularity during the summers of 2020 and 2021 when people looked for safer outdoor alternatives to enjoy their getaways.

It will reopen this year on May 14 and will unveil new cabins and more.

“It’s exciting to be reopening, and to be welcoming international guests for the first time since COVID-19 stopped global travel in its tracks,” said Margaux Bossanne, Huttopia brand, and business development manager.

Anyone returning for a visit to Huttopia this year will be able to enjoy more features this time, Bossanne added.

The retreat has added six wood cabins near Sand Pond. The cabins, or tiny houses as Bossanne described them – include two bedrooms with a kitchen, dining area, a bathroom, a fire pit, a barbecue set-up, screened-in front porch, complete with lounge chairs.

They’ve also added an enormous common fire pit in the area for S’mores nights and more.

Every glamper will also have barbecue grills at their site. Only the cabins and a handful of tents offered that service in the past.

Huttopia Southern Maine will also add to its entertainment appeal, hosting live shows in the evening, movie nights for adults, outdoor yoga, and children’s programs.

Sand Pond is also located on the outskirts of Huttopia, and it is possible to rent canoes, kayaks, and standup paddleboards.

Cabins’ starting costs are $200 a night and $105 a night for a tent.

Huttopia was founded in Lyon, France, in 1999. It now operates more than 60 sites across Europe, a handful located in the U.S. and one in Canada.

Apart from the Sanford location, there are Huttopia Retreats located in Albany, New Hampshire, New York, and California.

“Huttopia offers a selection of retreats for those who seek natural beauty, simplicity, connection to the great outdoors and, ultimately, to their loved ones,” the company stated.

Celine and Philippe Bossanne founded the family-owned business. After living in Canada for a couple of years in the 90s, they came back to their homeland France inspired by their time spent in the Canadian and American national parks.

“It was then that the idea of Huttopia emerged,” the company stated.

“They cherished being able to pitch tents in the heart of beautiful, natural spaces and sharing that experience with friends and family. And they wanted to give others the opportunity to have those kinds of experiences as well.”
