Experience glamorous camping accommodations in the new luxurious teepees at Westgate River Ranch Resort & Rodeo, just one hour south of Orlando. With Native American-style decor, the 651-square feet upscale teepees feature a double-sided stone rock hearth fireplace, screened private patio deck, microwave, mini refrigerator, leather chairs, a king bed, full sleeper sofa and air conditioning and heating accommodating up to four guests. The teepees also include a vanity and porcelain cast iron claw bathtub and shower.
Outside the teepee, guests can enjoy outdoor fire pits, swinging hammocks, festoon lighting and outdoor dining tables. The community Chickee Hut made of a palmetto thatch-roof lets families gather just as the Native Americans once did years ago.
With 10 teepees in the resort's Takoda Village, each has its own distinctive name, such as "Dancing Warrior," "Roaming Buffalo" and "Soaring Eagle." Surrounded by a canopy of 100-year old oak trees, the teepees are secluded providing a quiet escape within the 1,700 lush acres of the resort.
Teepee guests also have access to an on-site concierge ready to assist in booking ranch activities and deliver complimentary pastries and coffee each morning.
Price: Starting at $450 per night, based on double occupancy with a two-night minimum. Teepee accommodations include unlimited access to activities such as horseback riding, trap and skeet shooting, adventure park admission, complimentary use of a golf cart for the duration of the stay and VIP seating for the Saturday evening rodeo.
