Review: Natural Gardens, Western Catskills, Upstate New York


Book A Hotel

Exciting glamping news for luxury travellers visiting upstate New York! Our favourite, and the World’s number 1 Canvas Hotel Chain, Glampotel, are set to open the brand new Glampotel Natural Gardens site in the stunning Western Catskills in upstate New York on 24th August 2018.


Glampotel Natural Gardens is surrounded by beautiful mountain scenery, woodland gardens and landscaped ponds on an existing 107 acre events venue. The site lies less than 3 hours from New York City but you’ll feel a million miles away from civilisation and normality. You can lose whole days wandering the site; coming across babbling brooks, waterfalls, organic vegetable gardens and vineyards, admiring the native orchids, pausing to rest a minute in the gazebo, spotting the local wildlife (that includes white tailed deer, foxes, coyotes, raccoons, turtles, frogs and a huge variety of birds) and meandering across the bridges (there are 4!).

Style & Character

The gorgeous Glampotel Canvas Cottages offer the perfect off-grid, eco-friendly, glamping escape. The name gives away the style somewhat; they offer the romance of sleeping under canvas with the comforts and luxuries of a stylish boutique hotel. Glampotel itself has quickly developed into the world’s first and only true Eco-Tourism Glamping Canvas Hotel chain; they have been creating very happy glampers the world over for 5 years now!

Service & Facilities

The romantic Glampotel Canvas Cottages themselves boast hardwood floors, handmade custom wooden furniture and private ensuite bathrooms. On hot, sunny days, there are solar powered fans to cool you down and if the nights are chilly, there’s a wood burning or propane real flame stove plus lots of throw blankets for snuggling under the stars; a pre-requisite part of the Glampotel experience. Outside you have a private wooden deck with a gas powered BBQ, a comfy seating area and stunning countryside views. The off-grid element means you have solar lighting and there are even solar USB chargers so you can charge your phone if you must.
As with the other Glampotel sites, Glampotel Natural Gardens is independently run by carefully selected partners who are ready to welcome you to their beautiful site. Free car parking is available in the Natural Gardens parking lot, and you arrive in style too; being driven by golf cart to your Canvas Cottage which is just a two minute ride from the car park.


Wonderfully, your Canvas Cottage includes an actual bed; either a King size or a Queen and two twins, with luxurious cotton sheets, pillow cases and hypoallergenic duvet. Your private ensuite bathroom includes an actual full size walk in shower! There’s even a mirror, fluffy white towels and plenty of biodegradable toiletries; they even pass the conditioner test!

Food & Drink

Your kitchenette provides all your need to cook up an al fresco feast and dine and drink under the stars. Some essentials are provided to get you started; coffee, tea and creamer and bottled water. For lazy nights, there’s also a new micro-brewery bar and farm to table restaurant opening onsite soon, then you can head back to your wooden deck, snuggle up and star gaze with a chilled drink in hand; off-grid has never been this luxurious!
