As a girl who grew up being a Girl Scout and even spent a few summers as camp counselor, I have always enjoyed the outdoors. But as I got older, the idea of camping, sleeping on the ground, surrounded by insects under a tent, just isn’t as appealing as it used to be. I have grown to become more in favor of nice amenities and less roughing it. If you are like me, but love being surrounded by nature, this one just might be for you!
Glamp Blue Ridge is comprised of seven larger-than-life domes nestled in a private area in Cherry Log, Georgia. Each dome sits high in the trees perched on a 40 foot deck overlooking a waterfall. The domes are individually decorated, each with a different theme, and adorned with high-end fixtures and a glamorous feel. I stayed in the Betty White Dome, the highest elevation of all the domes, and as you can imagine, it is decorated with white furnishings, white plush bedding and gold fixtures. Posh and perfect.
As for creature comforts, the domes are air-conditioned in the summer and heated in the winter, have a comfortable king bed, a functional kitchen, beautifully designed bathroom with a vintage vanity, and heated toilet with bidet. The large decks are equipped with a grill, fire pit and large hot tub. At night the property lights up, and you feel like you are in a fairytale.
From your deck you can see and hear the rippling water of the beautiful Fall Branch Falls, which is just 100 feet from the domes. The Glamp Blue Ridge property spreads across 25 acres, across from the Chattahoochee National Forest. Those that want to hike can hop right onto the 300-mile-long Benton Mackaye trail or stay on the property and take a short walk up to the Glamp Blue Ridge peak and enjoy a mountaintop serene space.
Not only did I feel like I was staying in a five-star resort in the tree tops, but my weekend in the dome at Glamp Blue Ridge gave me the opportunity to spend a few days surrounded by majestic views and camp in glamour.
