The Ultimate Father’s Day Gift For The Outdoor Lover In Your Life

Father’s Day is just around the corner. You could give that special Father Figure in your life a mug with a quippy saying. Or you can give him what he really wants – the gift of an ultimate outdoor adventure without all the fuss. He works hard, so let’s take the hard work out of camping for him. Laying out the tent in your backyard to check for tears. Refilling propane for the cook stove. Stocking the lanterns and flashlights with fresh batteries. We’ll have none of it. Maybe Dad just wants to cut right to it; take a little road trip that leads to the immediate gratification of all the pleasures camping evokes:

  • Sleeping with little between you and the starlit forest canopy.
  • The warmth of a crackling campfire.
  • The waft of burnt sugar as you slip a warm, gooey, perfectly toasted marshmallow off the stick past your lips.
  • Stripping life down to the essentials for a few glorious days to unplug, unwind, and reset.

This is the essence of what we strive for in a camping trip. So how do we transform the traditional roughing-it-in-the-wilderness camping trip into the more luxurious and comfortable experience known as glamping? We conjure the comforts of home and the luxury of a resort all while keeping in step with the traditions Dad loves – connecting with nature and keeping it simple.

Glamping at Naturluxe & Stars

You might remember Tom from Parks & Rec or Winston from New Girl really leaning into the idea of glamping. Tom even claims to have coined the phrase. Or glamping may give rise to the thought of high-end music festivals like Coachella. What glamping is ultimately about is combining the beauty of nature with the comfort and luxury of high-end accommodations. It’s about experiencing the outdoors without sacrificing modern amenities. Naturluxe & Stars is a Glamping Resort in the Finger Lakes region that seeks to give you that post-road trip immediate camping gratification. Show up with just your weekend bag and let loose in already-pitched canvas tents (some with private bathrooms), and cozy beds. The Dads in your life may (maniacally) love the challenge of setting up the tent without looking at the instructions, but maybe they just haven’t considered a better way. The glamping way. Let’s change their minds, shall we?

Why Glamping Is The Perfect Father’s Day Gift

Our version of camping involves resort-like accommodations that revolve around closeness to nature and an abundance of comfort. All of the tents are ready and waiting for our campers to simply set down their bags and start glamping!

The Glamping Set Up

  • The Canvas Tent – The spacious tents at Naturluxe & Stars are made from durable 100% cotton canvas. These spacious tents allow for you and Dad to comfortably move around and have ample space for belongings. Mesh screens with great ventilation (and fans!) provide a comfortable sleeping environment complete with soothing sounds of surrounding nature.
  • His Sore Back Will Thank You – Save the sleeping bags for his next backpacking trip. Luckily for our guests, they need not travel with mattress pads, inflatable beds, or bedding in tow. A bed with a comfortable mattress and warm, down-alternative bedding is ready and waiting for him after a full day of Finger Lakes and Watkins Glen outdoor adventures.
  • Cozy Luxury – a nightstand, a comfy chair, rugs, extra pillows, and fluffy bath towels; all of our tents are furnished with these items at Naturluxe & Stars to feel comfortable, warm, and extra luxurious. Did we mention our modern shared bathhouse features a private outdoor shower with double shower heads for the ultimate under-the-stars, rejuvenating experience?
  • Campfire Set Up Done For You – A campsite is never complete without a campfire with comfortable seating. Our communal campsites are surrounded by Adirondack chairs for the ultimate campfire coziness. Dad can show off his fire-starting skills if he must, but we are here to do it for you and have S’mores to go around!

The Extras – Father’s Day Gift Ideas For The Ultimate Outdoor Adventure

We want you to come as you are when you book a trip to Naturluxe & Stars. But there are a few things we know the men in your life would love. Leave the big stuff at home and focus on the following to make his glamping trip truly memorable:

  • Modern Tech – Though the goal is to unplug, most of us still love bringing our phones on hikes or other adventures, and with all the opportunities for water sports in the Finger Lakes region, a waterproof phone case would be a great gift for any guy in your life. A Go-pro attachment for his camera would also be a treat. Does he love music and/or the ability to listen to audiobooks or podcasts? Get him a waterproof Bluetooth speaker and quality waterproof headphones. Our tents include battery packs for charging electronics, so it’s easy to keep your gadgets capturing the fun all weekend long.
  • Food & Drink – When you are glamping, no one wants to toil over a campfire meal or chop vegetables when you could be playing lawn games (we’ve got those too). Instead, leave the camp stove and utensils at home and gift him a small quality cooler that he can pack with some of his favorite snacks and craft beer. Rather than cook, you can explore the local wineries dishing out perfect fare to take on a picnic or enjoy all your meals out on the town. You could also give him a new insulated water bottle to take on hikes or an insulated wine tumbler (cue custom vinyl Dad jokes) to sip local Finger Lakes wines around the campfire.
  • Clothing, Footwear, & Protection From The Elements – The clothes you pack for glamping should reflect the level of adventure, comfort, and types of outings you seek. If you’re missing any of the following supplies, definitely make a trip to Famous Brands Outlet in downtown Watkins Glen for high-quality discounted gear. An adventure-filled weekend will require different clothing than a wine tour or a day at the race track. You can’t go wrong with the classic jeans and tee shirt no matter what you plan on doing, but if your weekend involves hiking or boating, be sure to include swimwear as well as breathable, protective clothing to protect from the sun, ticks, and mosquitos (sunscreen, a hat or visor, and insect repellant should be part of your list). Don’t forget to pack going-out wear for wineries and restaurants. Sleepwear should be warm enough for cooler summer nights. New hiking boots, hats, sunscreen or insect repellent, NASCAR gear, and new outer or swimwear make great gifts for Father’s Day to pack for a glamping trip.
  • A Visit To The Racetrack – Naturluxe & Stars is just minutes away from Watkins Glen International Speedway. No Dad that we know would turn down a chance to see their favorite drivers in action or to drive a few laps on the track. There are events every weekend so surprise him with tickets during his stay at Naturluxe & Stars!
