smith lake farm glamping site

we'd love to host you

Our 90-acre farm sits at the end of a long dirt road, bordered by pasture and forest.
 
Cattle, chicken, and ducks roam about, bees forage to and from the apiary,
frogs snack on damselflies along the water's edge, and our resident beaver
greets you with the splash of his tail.

Each glamping site's tucked away on the northwest side of the lake, along a stretch
of wilderness bog and nestled amongst youthful alder, fir, hemlock, and pine.

Located in our spring and fall rangeland, each site is nearly an acre—providing plenty

of peace and privacy for our guests.


You've almost got the place to yourself!

our accommodation

Our lovely lakefront property is a great place to unplug and unwind, escape the hustle

and bustle of life, tune into nature, and experience a working farm.

We offer quick access to our lake, trails, and wilderness bog, making it easy

to walk or bike anywhere on the property.

We're close to amenities, beautiful beaches, world-class mountain biking, and the

bike park at Mount Washington Alpine Resort.

glamping sites

Our glamping sites include a comfortable bed & bedding, a private outdoor toilet, two

Adirondack chairs, picnic table, and private kitchen tent equipped with propane stove,

dining area, washbasin, drinking water, and well water for washing. 

Sites don’t have running water or electricity. 

Guests staying at The Prospector and The Skygazer can paddle directly to the lake.

 

Glampers have access to a shared outdoor shower (hot water!) on the side of our barn,

beach area with dock, and shaded picnic area.

Glampers, bring your camping kitchen tote, towels, bikes, floaties, lifejackets, flashlights, and sense of adventure. If you don't have a kitchen tote equipped with cutlery, pots, pans, dishes etc.,

we're more than happy to rent you one of ours for an additional one-time fee.

 

Each site includes one full propane bottle for use with the stove. If you'd like to use the propane fireplace, an additional propane tank can be rented from us or bring your own.

 

All food must be kept in a cooler in your car! 

We have bears, raccoons, and ravens that share our property.

 

Garbage must be brought to the big barn beside the shower every night.

"By far the most amazing glamping experience we’ve ever had. Located on the far end of a vast farm acreage, the site was completely private nestled in a beautiful forest refuge. Woke up to the sounds of birds, and the gentle wind in the trees, and settled for the night to the croaking of frogs from our lakeside site. So many thoughtful touches during our stay. Immaculately clean and exceptionally private, it was a restorative and replenishing experience."

glamping tent at smith lake farm

Very private and quiet setting. We heard owls hooting back and forth, beavers slapping their tails and birds galore. We found the tent spacious and clean, with a comfy queen sized bed and plenty of headroom. Despite some heavy rain, we absolutely enjoyed ourselves and stayed dry and comfortable. The hot shower and barrel sauna helped! Host is welcoming, friendly, and pays attention to details. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back!

glamping site comox valley

Beautiful, incredible hidden gem! As avid backcountry campers we were incredibly surprised to find more wildlife on the property than we’ve seen on most camping excursions. The sites are gorgeous, private, and well-thought-out. The frolf course was fun and challenging. We spent many hours floating around in the lake, taking in the scenery. Looking forward to future visits.

smith lake glamping tent

Magical and memorable experience! Very comfortable and cozy tent to stay in, and especially special at night with a view of the night sky. Highly recommend bringing your paddleboard and kayak down to the lake, where the water is warm and the view is great. The host is very friendly and helpful.
