Florida's Westgate River Ranch Resort & Rodeo is taking "glamping" to the next level with the introduction of luxe teepees.
The Central Florida-based all-inclusive camping resort announced Monday that the 10 new teepees, which can accommodate up to four guests at a time, will start at $450 per night based on double occupancy with guests required to book a minimum of two nights.
Influenced by Native American tradition, the 651-square-foot teepees offer one of the more unique overnight stays available. In addition to a private screened patio deck and fireplace, the teepees feature a plethora of amenities that one would expect to find in a hotel room, including a microwave, refrigerator and heating and air conditioning.
Guests will even have access to their own private ensuite bathrooms equipped with a tub and shower.
If for some reason they decide to step out of the teepee, guests can explore the rest of Takoda Village, which boasts an authentic tribal council pavilion as well as campground mainstays like fire pits, hammocks and dining tables.
Since the resort is all-inclusive, guests who book one of the new teepees will have complimentary access to a variety of activities at the ranch, including horseback riding, trap and skeet shooting and airboat rides.
What's more, teepee guests will receive concierge service, golf cart transporation and VIP tickets to the weekend rodeo.
Westgate River Ranch said the teepees arrive in wake of its glamping tents, which have been a success since being introduced three years ago.

"Following the incredible demand and guest feedback from our glamping tents, our guests told us they wanted an even higher-end, all-inclusive experience offering the finest in amenities, luxury and service," said Westgate Resorts' CEO David Siegel in a statement. "
"Guests of our Luxe Teepees can expect a five-star hotel experience in a camping setting."
