Getaway Moodus Offers the Perfect Glamping Escape

One of the most luxurious ways to camp is by way of a tiny cabin.

Just ask the folks at Getaway, a collection of tiny cabins scattered in cozy communities throughout the country. Better than camping, the elevated glamping experience features a stay in an individual accommodation with one queen bed (for two guests) or two queen bunks (for up to four guests), a full bathroom, kitchenette and heating/air conditioning.

Getaway encourages you to “get away” from technology to bring you closer not only with nature but also your fellow travelers. There is no WiFi and cell phone coverage can be spotty, but trust us, it’s worth it.

We recently visited the Moodus, CT location and stayed in a pet friendly cabin for a weekend getaway. Whether you come for a couple of nights or book an extended stay, Getaway offers a much needed escape to enjoy the outdoors, all from the comfort of your cozy cabin. Each cabin is strategically placed at different angles on the property so as to maximize privacy.

When you book your stay here, you will receive a confirmation email about the Outpost. On the day you are scheduled to arrive, you will receive a text with the name of your exact cabin along with an entry code. There is no check in or check out required – simply enter the code to enter and press lock on the door before you leave.

As soon as you arrive, they encourage you to put away your cell phone to truly unwind and disconnect. They even provide a cell phone lockbox so you can stay focused on the real reason you came here – to relax and escape your everyday harried lifestyle.

Tiny cabins range in size from 140 to 200 square feet and feature an enormous window that overlooks the serene setting. All of the basics needed are included in your stay. There is a two-burner stove for cooking along with a mini fridge. Cookware, silverware, fresh linens, bath towels and other essentials like dish soap, shampoo, and paper towels are all provided. They also offer the opportunity to purchase non-perishable provisions like pasta and s’mores. Several provided books in a mini library, a radio and playing cards are also available to be enjoyed during your stay.

The queen bed was extremely comfortable with a puffy blanket on top to ensure a great night’s sleep. The bed is located adjacent to an Instagram-worthy, floor-to-ceiling window that provides an unobstructed view of the surrounding wooded location. There are darkening blinds that can be pulled for folks who aren’t morning people, but we enjoyed waking up naturally to the early morning sunrise.

Outdoors, the campsite is already set up for you, so all you have to do is unpack and enjoy. There are two Adirondack chairs that you can kick back and relax on around a morning or late night fire. The fire pit also had a grilling grate where we cooked hamburgers and hot dogs over the open fire. A nearby picnic table provided the perfect spot for dining al fresco. They even had a leash hookup for our four-legged friend. 

If you are looking for a good excuse to get away from it all and rejuvenate in a natural setting, Getaway provides the perfect escape. Each Getaway location is sited in a rural area yet guaranteed to be a two-hour drive or less from its respective city.

Getaway is located at 298 E. Haddam Moodus Road, Moodus, Connecticut.
