AirBnb for Camping Expanding to Adirondacks
Airbnb is one of the best ways to find lodging when you’re not from an area and are looking for a different experience than a hotel. Now, you can do the same thing but for camping and the up-and-coming app has now expanded to the Adirondacks.
Times Union is reporting that the app Tentrr is now expanding. The app officially launched in 2016 with a few campsites in New York, but since then they have grown to over 1000 campsites in the Northeast and the state of California. While they already had sites in the Hudson Valley and Catskills, they’re going to begin to include sites in not only the Adirondacks but the Berkshires as well.
If you have a property that you’d like to have featured on this website, you can reach out to Tentrr via a questionnaire and schedule a time for a scout to come check it out. The Times Union also says, “They also use the “run around naked rule” — can a camper run around outside their tent in the nude without being seen by the property owner or neighbors —to assess privacy and seclusion.” If they deem your site appropriate for their site, Tentrr employees will return and set up camping equipment (which is more like glamping). On each of the sites, “a canvas tent rests atop a deck with Adirondack chairs, a picnic table, a stove and a grill near a sun shower and camping toilet. Inside the tent there’s a queen-sized air mattress the company recently redesigned to also function as a bunk bed.”
If you’re looking at sites, they tend to range between $100-125 per night for four people.
