WOODHOUSE TOP 10 | Living Room Camping

Indoor camping is a great year-round and weatherproof way to bring the outdoors inside. With a little effort, you can easily create a warm and inviting campsite that still feels connected to nature. 

1: NO TENT, NO PROBLEM!

If you don’t have a tent or the space to set one up, with a bit of DIY creativity, you can recreate the magic with a sheet and rope. Click to see some set-up suggestions.

2: STARRY, STARRY NIGHT

Set the magical mood by stringing fairy lights around your tent and the room to recreate a starry twinkle. 

3: HOW'S THE SERENITY?

Place your indoor houseplants around the tent to block off the views of furniture and feel a bit more in the outside.  

4: MAKE A CAMPFIRE

Get crafty! Arrange a few logs from outside in a stacked pattern and add some orange and red tissue paper to resemble flames. 

5: TAKE YOUR FUR-BABY!

Many campsites, including Woodhouse, are pet-free (for the safety and enjoyment of all guests)… but not this one! 

6: VIRTUAL REALITY

Take advantage of your wi-fi by streaming a campfire, the night sky, or nature sounds from your TV.
