A well-rounded urban camping experience is a new summer option on Governors Island. Campers can choose an activity-packed agenda complete with private boats, dining, kids’ activities and wellness programs, and a chance to sleep under the stars surrounded by New York skyline views and 1,500 thread count sheets, private en-suite bathrooms and decks, electricity, and WiFi within. For modern design lovers, the island’s cozy Summit and Journey tents from Collective Retreats will be joined by new Outlook shelters. These modular hotel rooms resemble tiny modern cabins with 225 square feet–plus 75 square feet of deck space–of indoor architecture that “seamlessly compliments outdoor grandeur with fully sheltered structures.” And for this unique experience, prices will start at $595/night.
Outlook Shelters are double occupancy, offering a king bed and an optional double bed, 1,500 thread-count linens and down comforters, electric outlets, a private en-suite bath with a rain shower, and a luxury spa soaking tub with a view. Unlike the tents, however, the Shelters have two private decks with Adirondack chairs, as well as a “living room” with a coffee table and couch.
Additional perks include spa bath products, spa robes, and Turkish towels, plus the same dining and snack options available to all campers. You can even get room service on request.
The shelters will be joining the tents as of tomorrow. You can find more info on Governors Island accommodations and the Outlook shelters here.
