Fancy Camping with Timberline Glamping

I love some good outdoor time. Stepping away from the busy mom life, ignoring all the typical ongoing distractions, and taking a minute to be one with nature. It’s my favorite way to decompress.

And while I love a good full day outdoors spent hiking, relaxing waterside in a hammock, watching the sunset over a lake or behind the mountains, and even cooking dinner over a campfire (I’ve mastered campfire nachos)… at the end of the day, I want to sleep in a bed. A real bed that’s comfy in a room with air conditioning and a hookup for my cell phone charger or a blow dryer.

Is that too much to ask??

Timberline Glamping does not think so! Our team at Atlanta Mom recently discovered Timberline Glamping as the perfect way to decompress outdoors while keeping it comfortable and even a bit fancy.

We booked a weekend, waved goodbye to kids and husbands, and sped out of the driveway as fast as possible (kidding, mostly) to meet up at Timberline’s Lake Lanier Shady Grove location! And although we aren’t all expert outdoorswomen, we didn’t need to be with the amazing setup we found upon arrival.

Here are a few things we loved about our Timberline experience:Timberline Glamping

  1. Hello, fancy tents! This was my kind of camping…
    • hardwood floors
    • super comfortable beds with the softest bedding
    • a heater for the chilly February nights
    • a refrigerator
    • a Keurig coffee maker with coffee mugs
    • outlets to charge our devices at the end of the day
    • so spacious too!
  2. A sweet setup at our site! Our site had a great picnic table with cute string lights, a firepit with chairs, a charcoal grill, and hammocks for relaxing. We were able to pack light given that so much was provided onsite already.
  3. The dreamy location! Our tents were in a prime position overlooking Lake Lanier. We watched the sunset over the lake at night and took time to relax in the hammocks by the water in the morning. Had we spent time there during the warmer months, it was also perfect for swimming and kayaking. That lake view is the calm to my crazy.
  4. Time to connect! We left behind our TVs and computers and even silenced our cell phones. It may sound simple, but we just hung out and talked for hours. We had fun keeping the fire going all night, making smores, and listening to good music by the lake.

Whether you are craving some girl time, family time, or significant other time, glamping with Timberline Glamping is a special way to relax and reconnect. I’m even considering it for a birthday getaway for my daughter this June – letting her invite a few friends for a “fancy campout.”

Jessica is an adventure-loving, over-committing, and previously organized mother of 2! She and her husband (high school sweethearts) moved to Atlanta in 2006 after graduating college, ready to start their life in the “real world”. They have experienced so many wonderful life milestones while in Atlanta – lived in Buckhead pre-kids, bought a house in great Smyrna neighborhood, had their first child in 2011 (a spunky little girl, Vivian), welcomed their second child exactly 18 months later in 2012 (a creative and crazy little boy, Harrison), and most recently added a Golden Doodle named Winston into the mix. Jessica and her family have since moved to the burbs of Milton where you now find them past 2 horse farms on the right. Jessica has always loved being part of a community, so when the opportunity to join the Atlanta Mom executive team presented itself it was a no brainer! She loved it so much, in fact, that in 2021 she and Natalie joined forces to lead the team and continue connecting with awesome moms across the ATL!
