Over the past few years, "glamping" has made a name for itself in the outdoor adventure world. If you're not familiar with the term, it is a combination of the words "glamorous" and "camping" which is exactly what you'll find at The Fields of Michigan in South Haven. If you enjoyed camping as a child, or are looking to try something new, this luxury glamping site takes care of all the hard work and allows you to relax and rejuvenate in nature.
While you could easily spend all your time on site, The Fields is also located only three miles from Lake Michigan and close to downtown South Haven which offers endless opportunities to explore the area. â
Disclaimer: We were hosted for a one night stay at The Fields of Michigan. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
When you arrive at the Fields you'll catch a shuttle through the blueberry fields to your tent. There are 19 total tents on the property and each is equipped with a pillow-top bed (so comfy), electricity, a full bathroom, Yeti cooler, and fire pit. The tents themselves are so dreamy with a rustic flair and honestly very roomy. Each tent also has heat and a heated bed as well as a fan and AC unit depending on the time of year you're staying. The tents are very well built and while they don't lock, you can zip both layers while you're sleeping for added privacy. It also stormed overnight during our stay and it was so peaceful listening to the rain on the canvas roof.
âThere is a two-night minimum stay and tents have a maximum double occupancy (2 adults). Children 12 and under may be added (with a rollaway bed) to tents $100 per night and up to two per tent. Children 2 and under are free. And the best part? Your furry friends are welcome to stay with you for a small pet fee!
Let's be honest, the best part of camping in the slow pace of life and simply enjoying your time in nature. However, The Fields also offers several activities for guests. Rent bikes for $30 per day and take the Kal-Haven Trail down to the beach or ride around town. Pick as many blueberries as you can eat straight from the fields (season ranges from Mid- July through August). Challenge your friends to a game of corn hole or head to the Willows and play a board game. Participate in a wine tasting experience. Relax with a signature massage in a treehouse. Or reach out to concierge to book your sunset sail nearby. The possibilities are truly endless!
Coffee and a hot breakfast are included each morning with your stay and are served in the Willow which is the main facility on site. Enjoy your morning while sitting outside at the farm table overlooking the pond. A chef also comes onsite a few nights each week based on his availability and offers a curated (and delicious) menu for the month which can be reserved for an added cost. The Fields has their liquor license and you can find a full list of items available in the Camp Canteen upon arrival.
Glamping was truly a one-of-a-kind experience that I would recommend to anyone. The Fields staff are so thoughtful and accommodating to guests. There is always a host on site if you need anything during your stay and they'll come around each night to light your campfire which was my favorite way to end the evening. Their season lasts from April to October and they do book up quickly so if you're interested, start planning now!
