Frequently Asked Questions
Do you provide bedding?
Of course! We provide all bedding, including luxurious sheets, pillows, down comforter, and blankets.
Do you provide towels and toiletries?
When the seasonal outdoor shower is operational (mid-April through Mid-November), we provide fluffy towels, spa robes, sandals, and shampoo, conditioner, and body wash.
What time is check-in and check-out?
Check-in is at 3pm and check-out is at 11am. Depending on availability, we may be able to offer and early check-in or a late check-out for a $25 fee.
How far is the camp from the parking area?
The camp is about a 4-5 minute walk from the parking area along a gravel path. We will greet you and shuttle you and your things to camp for both check-in and check-out.
Are additional people accommodated at camp? What about kids or babies?
We designed this experience as a getaway for two adults. If you have a little one young enough to sleep in a pack-n-play, you are welcome to bring them along. This is only recommended in the warmer months.
Are there cooking facilities?
We do not provide any cooking facilities. Guests are welcome to bring ready-made food, take-out, or their own camping stove. We also have a small-but-decadant room service menu (further details with your reservation confirmation).
Is there electricity at the camp?
Yes! The camp is solar-powered and there are outlets to charge your devices and electric lighting.
How about running water and a flushing toilet?
The camp is totally totally off-grid and there is no running water and therefore no flushing toilet. We provide water for the sink and will replenish your supply as many times as needed. The toilet is a composting unit (we are big fans of our Sun-mar Centrex 2000!) and is located in the ensuite bathroom of the tent. Our seasonal outdoor shower (available mid-April-mid-November) has hot, running water that we also replenish as needed throughout your stay.
Is there cell-service? Wi-Fi?
Miraculously, there is excellent cell service in the glade! We do not have Wi-Fi at Highwood Retreat.
How many camps are there?
Our flagship camp is the only site currently open- you'll have the beautiful glade all to yourself! Our second camp is opening Spring 2024, our third camp will be opening Winter 2025. Follow our Instagram (@highwoodretreat) for updates!
