Luxury Tents & Tree Houses

by Sarah Tuff

El Capitan Canyon, Santa Barbara, California
If you love s'mores but hate being sandwiched between a polyester sack and a pile of rocks on the ground, consider pitching a tent—oh, wait, somebody's already done it for you—at El Capitan Canyon. On the beaches of Santa Barbara and Los Padres National Forest are 26 off-white, 12-by-14-foot canvas safari tents on wooden platforms, with individual fire pits. The tents are outfitted with hand-woven willow beds and bright bedside lanterns—not that you'll have much reading energy left after a day of kayaking, mountain biking, and wine touring. If the tent still sounds like roughing it, opt for one of the 100 cedar cabins with wet bars, electricity, and refrigerators. Or just iron out the kinks of camping life by asking the staff to arrange an 85-minute stone massage in your tent, followed by a "barbecue kit" from the on-property Canyon Market and Deli—complete with s'mores.
Safari tents from $135, cabins from $185
