Upgrade Your Glamping or Farm Stay Business


Glamping Business is Trending Up

If you’re fortunate enough to be running a glamping business right now, you already know the industry is trending up! In 2020 the global glamping industry was valued at $1.88 billion. By 2028 it’s anticipated the industry will be valued at nearly $6 billion, with the United States projected to be the fastest-growing sector. There’s no question that now is the time to be building your glamping or farm stay business.

However, a booming market means new, aspiring entrepreneurs every day.  And that means competition. Already, glamping consumers are searching out those businesses offering more than just glamping; they want service-oriented facilities and luxurious accommodations.

It may feel like the reservations are coming faster than you can keep up with today, but the most successful glamping entrepreneurs will be the ones thinking ahead to when the market is saturated and consumers have more choices about where to stay.

Ask yourself these questions:

  • What are you great at?
  • How can you stand out?
  • Which services can you provide that others can’t?
  • What makes you different from other glamping getaways near you?

About The Durango

The Durango is the product of a collaboration between Jim Stout, co-founder of Stout Tent, and Dave Ellis, owner of Ellis Canvas Tents and one of the last true tent engineers in the United States. Tucked away in a small shop in Durango, CO, Jim and Dave worked long hours together poring over the final design and hand sewing hundreds of yards of U.S. sourced canvas. Across the country in Vermont, Nordic Spruce trees were harvested for the tent’s poles.

The results speak for themselves. With its buttery, tan canvas, and soft wooden poles, The Durango is as beautiful as it is practical. Leave the sides down for a gathering and event space 34′ in diameter, easily kept warm on cool nights. Or, raise the sides for a dramatic 43′ in covered space. The spruce poles are perfect for hanging lights and other decor. With the sides lifted there’s close to 1500 sq. ft of decorating space!

We’re thrilled about the newest addition to our canvas tent product line and are confident you’ll love it as much as we do.
