If you’ve been following me for a while, you know that our family loves the outdoors. Before having Logan, we traveled full-time for nearly a year in our 2004 Land Cruiser across the country. It has always been a dream of ours to renovate a vintage camper and be off-the-grid. For a night, we got to pretend at Pomelo Grove.
About 40 minutes outside Nashville, Pomelo Grove is technically a boutique eco-camp, offering a premier glamping experience with high-end camper rentals. The three chic campers are designed with the comforts and finishes you’d expect from a boutique hotel room, all while nestled in the rolling hills of Middle Tennessee farmland. The campers are currently parked on land at Bloomsbury Farm — our daughter loved exploring the open fields and interacting with the chickens + goats!
Each camper has the full glamping experience — a queen size bed, kitchen, AC/heat, bathroom and hot showers. You’ll also find classic board games, locally roasted Stay Golden Pomelo Grove coffee, cards, records and a record player, fire pit, outdoor games, adult coloring books, s’mores and more. FYI, the camper power is provided by generators. It gave us a glimps of what tiny living would look like for our family and we enjoyed every moment.
At night, we lowered the kitchen table, which can double as a small bed for kiddos. Logan slept on the sturdy platform in her pack ‘n play with her blackout pod. This worked out perfectly for us. We were able to bring her sound machine and a portable battery powered monitor so that we could sit by the fire pit and enjoy the stars. If you’re a family of multiples and need more space, they do have outdoor safari tents available.
We also brought our inflatable duck tub so that Logan could enjoy a sunset bath outside before she went to bed. It was probably the most adorable part of the night. Erin, the host and founder of the camp, was very accommodating and helped us get her tub filled with warm water. If we ever needed anything she was just a text away.
At camp, you can bring your own food or choose from one of the many meal plans. Their catering partners offer fresh, local food all delivered conveniently to your camper doorstep. We brought our own food for dinner but we enjoyed the homemade pancake mix from Something Sweet for breakfast. We also hit the snack bar after hours while we watched a movie snug in bed.
Overall this unique staycation is one that I’d recommend to anyone visiting or living nearby. The experience is well-worth it. It was exactly what our family needed. It’s been hard to find safe getaways but Pomelo Grove checks all the boxes. It’s most certainly a retreat we will never forget.
Staycation in collaboration with Pomelo Grove. This is my honest review.
