These 11 Kentucky Glamping Sites Are Fall-Ready…Just Like You, Right? [PICS]
I haven't camped a whole lot in my lifetime, but I've enjoyed it every single time. There's nothing like cutting yourself off from the world and vegging out.
Whether it was in a cabin in a ravine in southwestern New Mexico or on a large plot of land in Grayson County that had to be "bush-hogged" before we could use it, it's an amazing time. (Seriously, at the Grayson County site, NONE of us could get a phone signal. I guess that's what disconnecting and decompressing is all about.)
LET'S TALK GLAMPING IN KENTUCKY
But glamping? I've never done that before, unless a condo in Gatlinburg counts, and I don't think it does.
But this would CERTAINLY count.
Located in New Concord, Kentucky, it's a tiny Airbnb home hosted by Whitney and Sidney. It's on Kentucky Lake and I may not need to say more.
SO, WHERE DID WE GET 'GLAMPING'?
"Glamping" is a term that was first used in the mid-2000s, but this kind of EXPERIENCE dates back centuries. As you've probably already guessed, it's a combination of the words "glamorous" and "camping" and even will incorporate resort-style accommodations at certain locations.
THE CONCEPT OF 'GLAMPING' SEEMS SUBJECTIVE
But glamping comes in all shapes and sizes and seems to be an objective concept. However, I do operate under the assumption that it means you are not cut off from modern to somewhat modern conveniences. I mean, in that image above, I see a refrigerator and a smart TV. There's nothing like that in rural Grayson County or the remote mountains of New Mexico.
No matter, it looks like a lot of fun. And so do these other cool Kentucky glamping sites.
