Have you been dreaming of a romantic getaway to the sea that includes private accommodations, sea views, walks in vineyards, and plenty of recreation opportunities? In that case, it’s time to go glamping in Guysborough!
This is the most recent project to be launched under the Authentic Seacoast umbrella, a report said.
One of the newest trends in experiential tourism is glamping—camping with a glamorous twist. What makes it so glamorous? In Nova Scotia’s Guysborough, the sun is powering winterized yurts equipped with skylights, hot tubs on-site, barbecues, Muskoka chairs, and peace.
Glynn Williams, the proprietor of Authentic Seacoast Ltd., took a local report on a guided tour of the glamping sites situated within Mussel Cove and Cutler’s Cove in Guysborough Harbour to discuss the glamping experience as well as the company’s ongoing and forthcoming projects and lines of products.
When you enter the property, there is an area of sunflowers waiting to greet you. They are a source of food for honeybees. It’s another venture within the Authentic Seacoast range of interests. They also provide a fantastic backdrop for four of the ten yurts located on the site.
Moving through the vineyard toward an ocean, five more yurts are waiting with breathtaking views of Guysborough and the harbor.
Nearby is the washhouse with showers, bathrooms, and a kitchen prep designed with attention to detail and craftsmanship.
The trail leads to the most private of the ten yurts. You can see beehives and rugged coastlines that call out to artists, hikers, and adventurers of all kinds.
The yurts, which are round tents adapted from the Mongolian design, feature interior walls of wool to allow all-year-round use. They also have solar-powered lights and windows with zippers that open up to views of the ocean and vineyard or close enough to the warmth of the woodstove.
The layout in each yurt can be different and ranges from a queen-sized bed for two adults to bunk beds and even a double bed for families of four.
The following season, Williams declared he expects that more people will be drawn to the extraordinary experience.
“We continue to promote and inform everyone about Guysborough. It’s a great area. We’re confident that through working with the municipal council as well as other groups, like marinas and waterfronts, to keep working on getting the Guysborough branding out authentically and positively,” said Williams.
