Do you want to experience wilderness but are not the least bit interested in really roughing it? Want to be under the stars and in a king-size bed. Here's your spot.

What Does It Mean to be 'Roughing It'

I wasn't raised by outdoorsy parents who camped and spent time in the wilderness. I do love a good hike and a forest, I also enjoy a good day spent on a lake or river and I have always loved sitting around a fire, but I need a nice hotel or rental at the end of these trips.

My idea of roughing it is when the hotel's pool is outdoor.

That was always my motto. I've changed a bit over the years, but still need some modern conveniences and coverage when off the beaten path.

So much to do all throughout the park, that it is impossible to truly enjoy it all in just one day, you need a whole weekend or at least one great overnight stay.

Forget an ordinary hotel, you now have a great new and amazing option.
