What is glamping?

"Glamping is where stunning nature meets modern luxury. It’s a way to experience the untamed and completely unique parts of the world—without having to sacrifice creature comforts.

The way we travel has changed. We no longer want a generic, one-size-fits-all vacation. We want to explore on our terms and immerse ourselves in local culture, and we no longer just want to simply witness nature—we want to live in it. A fusion of glamour and camping, glamping is a way to authentically experience the most awe-inspiring locales around the world." - glamping.com

When you arrive to Wahwahtaysee, your tent will have a Yeti cooler stocked with the groceries necessary to make your meal, along with a recipe card. You may add-on the Yeti Dinner when you book a reservation for $50/person.

  3. Hire a private chef! We have partnered with a few local Chef’s, who specializes in gourmet farm-to-table style foods to provide private chef services to our guests.

  4. Dine at the local restaurants. We recommend Frank's, Lockhart Bistro, Mom's Front Porch, City Market Barbecue and exploring the world famous barbecue in Lockhart, Texas just 12 miles away. There is also a Stripes down the road from the property that stocks all the essentials, along with tacos and coffee!

  • We also allow dogs for an additional $50 (one dog) or $75 (two dogs) per night charge. We ask that you clean up after your dog, especially before they enter the tents. Each tent is equipped with an outdoor shower that can be of use.

  • We are in the process of adding wi-fi capabilities to the property, but it is not yet available. It is definitely a great opportunity to disconnect and enjoy the beautiful setting. If you will need internet during your stay, we recommend bringing a hot spot. Each tent is equipped with a TV and an antenna that will allow you to view the local channels. We will similarly be adding cable in the near future, but it is not currently available. You can also use a Hot Spot to access Netflix from the TV.
