One of the best experience I had recently, was staying in Alabaster Acres ,a luxury tent in a peaceful forest setting.
I had to admit that since I never slept in a tent, I didn’t know what to expect, and I had some concerns about my adjustment to this kind of vacation. I am not an adventurous person and I consider myself more like a big city girl, however my experience in Alabaster Acres was beyond all my exception and it really changes my perception about glamping tent and all the things that related to camping.
Alabaster Acres is a family farm in the Village of Caledon, not far from Brampton and just one hour away from Toronto. The rustic luxury tent absolutely has it all. From an organic farm that producing unique food options to beautiful green fields with colourful heritage breeds of animals, all in a very friendly atmosphere and fun activities, which can fit perfectly to family with energetic kids.
I adore the way the owner decorated the cozy space. Elegantly furnished tents complete with luxury hotel vibe, stylish design blend with authentic decor, comfy king size bed, white linens, a soft couch and even a fireplace inside the tent for the cold nights. After treating ourself in a bubble bath in the fresh air, outside the tent, we chilled out in a lounge chair by the fireplace with a refreshing sweet cider from Spirit Tree Estate Cidery, then my husband fired up the BBQ, that was located next to the tent, he made a delicious steak and humbuggers, which we got from Heatherlea Farm Shoppe , a charming local butcher, café and local bakery.
While my kids had a tour in the farm and got up close to all the animals in the area, such as donkey , horses , chicks, puppies, goats and etc.
Needless to say that my younger son had the time of his life, petting and feeding the animals. it made him so relaxed and happy. The interaction with the animals and the love he got back from them, makes these moments super precious and unforgettable for him.
I think that Alabaster Acres has the perfect location, since its so closed to the city. It allows you to have a quick escape from the business of the city and enjoy these peaceful moments with your family, with all the convince that luxury hotel has to offer, so you can actually feel the atmosphere of a country without sacrifice your comfort.
