If you’ve ever used Pinterest, chances are you’ve seen photos of idealistic round canvas tents with beds, rugs and twinkle lights set up for a romantic night. Though the aesthetic looks difficult (and expensive) to achieve, it’s likely more affordable than you might have thought. In fact, the exact gorgeous tent you’ve seen on Pinterest is available on Amazon for the same price as tents from your favorite sporting goods stores.
Shop: Outdoor Waterproof Canvas Bell Tent, $349-$499
Dream House sells the bell tent that’s perfect for luxury camping trips or for chilling in your backyard. The yurt-like canvas tent is supported by a central steel pole and reinforced with tension ropes that are held down by pegs. Its canvas material is waterproofed with sealed seams for durability in all types of weather.
The tent is also created with great ventilation, a must-have for any campaign structure. There are four windows with screens at ground level, along with four vents at the top. All of the windows and the door have mesh screens for air circulation, which can be zipped up with canvas flaps if you want to get a little cozier. It can also withstand wind up to 30 miles per hour, which is pretty impressive.
There are three tent sizes to choose from on Amazon, spanning from three to five meters. That’s a diameter of about 10 feet to 16.5 feet for those not versed in the metric system. The smallest three-meter size is said to be good for one or two people, while the four-meter size is said to sleep two to three people comfortably. If you plan to regularly sleep four or more people or want lots of room for a homey feel, the brand recommends going for the five-meter size.
Surprisingly, this glamping accessory is actually quite affordable as far as tents go. Depending on size, the tent costs between $349 and $499. For traditional tents at retailers like Dick’s Sporting Goods, these tents are in the mid to high range. However, the style and functionality of this particular tent are what sets it apart from traditional pop-up options.
Dream House’s tent has 4.3 out of five stars on Amazon, with buyers calling the tent “sturdy,” “roomy” and “easy to set up.” One reviewer says the tent is “rough, tough, durable and strong.” Although some have reported a bit of trouble during storms, others have said their tents have held up in all weather.
Whether you want to camp in style or just want a cool hangout in your backyard, this canvas tent is calling your name.
