There will be three types of lodging at Avalon Springs: thirty-seven tent cabins (160-180 square feet), twenty-eight eco-cabins (160-180 square feet), and fifteen family tent cabins (700 square feet). The tent cabins and family tent cabins will be sited on wood platforms. Eco-cabins will have an earthen base. The tents and eco-cabins are designed for double occupancy, while the family tents are designed to sleep up to six people.
Each tent cabin and cabin eco-cabin tent will have a bedroom, storage closet, and a bathroom including a shower. Each family yurt will have two sleeping areas designed to accommodate a family of 4-6 people in total. The guestrooms will have hot water and heating, with LED lighting.
Tent cabins will be wood framed with hung windows, doors, and canvas walls, providing a “luxury camping experience” (see www.sweetwaterbungalows.com).
Family tent cabins will be 30’ diameter yurts, similar to the Rainier models (see www.rainieryurts.com). Eco-cabins are to be craftsman style cottages, with walls formed of earthen construction featuring reclaimed redwood trim from the historic cabins that were de-constructed on the site. All tent cabins, eco cabins, and family tent cabins will have their own porch with a view.
The guestroom cabins are spread out over the entire site, and separated by landscaping, to create a sense of spaciousness and privacy.
