A new business is giving visitors a chance to experience the natural beauty of Unicoi County, Tenn., in a more luxurious way, according to the Johnson City Press.

Glamping Retro is a luxury camping — or “glamping” — destination located on Spivey Mountain near the North Carolina state line. Glamping Retro has six luxury tents, an Airstream and a treehouse available for rent.

Owners Tony and Sharen Turner said they plan to add more over time, though.

“We have another Airstream that we’re just completing,” Tony Turner said. “In total, we will have nine units.”

Tents range from primitive, which include two twin beds and a shared gas grill, to larger tents that include a kitchen, bathroom and private bedrooms. The campground also sports a bathhouse, a covered pavilion and a fire pit. The campground is also designed to host weddings.

The Turners said they hope to expand Glamping Retro not just in terms of camping options, but to include other local businesses like food trucks in the future.
