The fine folks at Terramor totally understand that glamping is not a one size fits all experience. That is why the property amenities include several ways to lay your head down at night. While it’s a glamping experience, they treat it like a luxury hotel.

Their luxurious, fully powered, wood-framed canvas tents come in various sizes ranging from two to five persons. They include private bathrooms which not all glampgrounds can boast.

Whether you’re enjoying an anniversary or a group retreat, you’ll find a glamping experience that fits your needs.

All of their tents, whether the Alder, Hemlock, Bayberry, Moosewood, or Birch, are furnished with cozy king beds and bunk beds. Most tents sleep upward of 6 guests.

Included with each stay is a set of fresh linens, Pendleton blankets, towels, and of course robes. They are elevated with wooden floors and most have a patio with rustic chairs and a private fire ring.

Comfort is a key priority in the exceptional glamping experience they provide. Sure, you might come for the memorable glampsites, maybe the heated pool and hot tub, but you’re going to stay for the outdoor fun this place has to offer.

Endless activities at this northern retreat.

The Terramor is located on Mount Desert Island, a beautiful island on the coast of Maine, which offers countless activities for you and your family. It’s the perfect getaway for an outdoor adventure.

Despite the name, this island is not what it sounds like.

No, you’re not going to find rolling dunes of sand at this glamping resort, as you would expect with something with the term desert in it; Instead, MDI as the locals call it, is lush with numerous lakes, ponds, trails, and what seems to be endless activities for any type of outdoor adventurer.

Get out of the comfy and cozy glamping tent and try out a self-guided tour or a fully curated tour.

You can go for a hike or rent bikes for a day-long tour of the island to include the infamous Bar Harbor.

There are also naturalist tours to learn more about the abundant plant and animal life around the island or schedule yourself a boat tour to do some fishing, enjoy the sunset, or just grab some lunch on the water.

Acadia National Park is not far from Terramor either. You can take a drive along the 27-mile scenic route taking in everything the park has to offer. There are beautiful seaside cliffs such as Otter Cliff and various stops along the way to include Thunder Hole, a naturally formed inlet in which the water crashes in and creates booming acoustic sounds that will send chills down your spine like thunder. It’s definitely a bucket-list item.

The options on this island retreat are endless and you’ll be sure to have a wonderful time. Many guests say the nature paired with luxury makes it a thoughtful retreat and perfect for this glamping resort.
