Whatcom County Glamping at Glen Echo Garden

Kalina’s Glamping Adventure

Glamping in Whatcom County's hidden treasure, Glen Echo Garden.

You know how many times we have camped as a family this year? Zero. Zero with a capital Z-E-R-O.

Which is pretty crazy considering we have camped with feeding tubes and feeding pumps, camped in Oregon for a week at a time and gone to our church campout every single year it has been in existence.

Yeah, our kids are not exactly thrilled with this. But between a trip to Peru, summer camp and, oh yeah, a WEDDING, we’ve been busy.  Kalina and Jubilee, however, managed some glamping. You know what glamping is, right? Glamorous camping.

(Yeah, I’m not a fan of the word either)

Well, it just so happens that the Glen Echo Garden the botanical garden that both Enoch and Kalina have worked at (and where Tilly and Jared were married) has a glamping area set up. Kalina arranged with her boss to have a glamping night with her friends when she returned from Peru.

And finally, last weekend, the time arrived.

The key to any great glamping experience is food, friends, and the great outdoors.

Kalina managed to score all three.

The location of Glen Echo Garden is amazing! It is seven acres of botanical gardens set in a wooded valley. I’m no fan of flowers (I think you all know that) but I love trees, ferns and the being outdoors.

The tent set up for glamping is a large canvas tent with amazingly soft beds.

The tent easily sleeps five people with plenty of floor space to add extra sleeping bags.

We all know how important good food is to a good party. Kalina had it all. Pizza, veggie tray, candy, cookies, donuts…

We were also totally spoiled by having Anytime Toffee. This stuff is handmade, locally, and I promise you it is the best toffee you will ever try.

Glen Echo Garden supplies a Keurig in the tent..and we provided plenty of coffee (and hot chocolate).

Yogurt parfaits are the perfect breakfast after a night of glamping.

And in the morning the girls had my favorite breakfast, yogurt parfaits.

It was the perfect end to the perfect glamping experience.

Are you a camper or a glamper? Or I’d rather stay home and watch Netflix-er?

  1. How do they keep the bedding and rugs from growing mildew??? Do they bring everything in on the damp days?

    • I wondered about this myself…I don’t know. You are suppose to bring your own bedding (which we did) and they had a space heater…so maybe he runs that to keep it dry?

  2. Wait, what? How can anyone not be a fan of flowers? What does that even MEAN? Now, I am not a fan of floral deliveries…I prefer to be gifted with plants or hand picked wild bouquets or even dandelions. But to not be a fan of flowers?!? I don’t understand! 😛

    • I love flowers in their natural environment….like our yard, or the woods. I am not a fan of cut flowers or giant cultivated flower gardens 🙂

Please share your thoughts!
