Glamping on the Hill 2017-09-11T21:56:28+00:00

Imagine driving through a vineyard of concord grapes and butterfly gardens to arrive at your campsite overlooking a lovely river valley and rolling hills, entering your spacious bell tent set up with comfy inflatable beds complete with linens and cozy quilts, unique vintage furnishings, some soft, natural lighting enhancing the beautiful color of the tent. Someone has already prepared your campfire, ready for your s’mores or hot dogs. You spend the night under the stars, surrounded by the sounds of nature- maybe an occasional Hoot Owl too.

The next morning you awaken to the music of the country; chirping birds, the business of the ducks and chickens as they scour the butterfly gardens for bugs….you enjoy an early cup of hot coffee with your morning walk through the Meditation Meadow or the Cottage Garden. A delicious fresh country breakfast on the wraparound porch awaits you at the main house. When you check out to enjoy the rest of your journey, you leave Hoot Owl Hill completely rested, refreshed and renewed.

We take the “rough” out of “roughing it!” If you love being outdoors, but you’ve resisted going camping because you wanted to avoid the equipment expense, sleeping on hard lumpy earth, using nature as your bathroom, having to purchase a specialized cooking setup, hauling food and water, then Glamping will get you there without the hassle. Glamping=Glamorous Camping.

If you’re looking for a country respite, Hoot Owl Hill is for you. We will do our best to design an event or getaway that’s personal and memorable.

Hoot Owl Hill is a place to relax with your friends by the light of a lovely campfire, under a big Kansas sky. We love that, and so will you. The Hill awaits. Come, breathe, and just Be.

OUR TENTS

OUR BELL TENTS:

We have four tents that hold up to 4-5 queen sized beds each and two tents  that hold up to 3 queen sized beds.  We always assume that everyone wants their own bed,  but sometimes people want to double up.  We try to separate groups so that they can have their own campfire pit if at all possible, but the only exclusive fire pit is the Hoot House.

COST: $99.00 per person(does not include tax). Does include breakfast

To reserve, a 50% deposit of the total price is required.

 

THE HOOT HOUSE
The HOot HOuse is a 16 X 24 canvas wall tent cabin, equipped for cooler weather glamping. It holds up to 8 queen-sized beds, so it’s perfect for larger Glamp-a-thons! Pitched on wooden platform, the Hoot House feels more like a cabin than a tent and is outfitted with rugs, furniture, lighting, and cozy inflatable beds made up with fun bedding and pillows. Just like our bell tents, there’s Glamptastic deco going on both inside and outside, and the Hoot House has it’s own exclusive fire pit dedicated to those guests only. There is a minimum number of 6 required to rent the HOot HOuse and breakfast is included in the per person price of $125.00. Sales tax is not included.

To reserve, a 50% deposit of the total price is required.
