Guest Experience Workshops & Glamping Consulting

Before you invest more in a glamping property, you need to understand the person you’re building it for…the guest! Drawing from their experience staying at glamping camps around the world, HoneyTrek has pinpointed the elements—large and small—to create an exceptional stay and crafted it into a comprehensive course for property owners. Taking into account each client’s unique situation, this three-hour session is tailored to your goals and lays a path for achievable success.

Workshop topics include:

  • Efficient and inviting property design
  • Selecting Structures
  • The basics and style of a great room/suite
  • The right bathroom setup (including off-grid options)
  • Common areas and social dynamics
  • How to incorporate dining (even if you don’t have a restaurant)
  • Offering a robust but low-maintenance activities program
  • Amenities and thoughtful touches
  • Check-in/out process that leaves a lasting impression
  • Ways to be more sustainable for the environment and eco-minded consumer
  • How to garner guest loyalty and positive reviews
  • How to jumpstart your social media and marketing strategy
  • How to work with the media and influencers to promote your property

This 3-4 hour workshop is conducted as a Zoom session. In-person courses and ongoing consulting are also available. Email and we can schedule a (no-cost) exploration call to learn more about your project and how we can be of service.

Professional Photography

The Howards are a rare team. Studying photography at Columbia University and shooting a book’s worth of photographs for National Geographic, Mike is an accomplished photographer. While his partner Anne’s eight years of experience as a national magazine editor and stylist working on high-profile photo shoots, brings an extra attention to detail, curation, and finesse to their work. Understanding what it’s like to shoot for print and social media, B2B and consumer-facing brands, the Howards adapt to the needs of their clients and each project. They create imagery that showcases what it’s like to enjoy the luxury outdoor lifestyle and what makes each camp so special. Delivering compelling, high-resolution photographs with unlimited-usage rights, HoneyTrek offers each client the assets needed to elevate their property’s marketing initiatives and increase bookings.

Social Media Storytelling

While HoneyTrek is already photographing your property, why not make the most of having travel influencers on site? The Howards can create social media content around their glamping experience for their social media audience (340,850 followers) while simultaneously creating exclusive content for your business’ social channels. This is an easy and effective way to boost brand following, engagement, and awareness for a glamping camp.

Glamping Client Testimonials

These two are not just glamping experts; they’re absolute enthusiasts, and their passion is downright infectious. From the moment we started, it felt like they were part of my team, really getting into the nitty-gritty of where my business is at. They didn’t just throw generic advice my way. Instead, they dove deep into my specific situation, making their advice feel completely tailored and spot-on. It was like having a friendly chat with old pals who just happened to be whizzes in the glamping world. They have a knack for breaking down big, scary business challenges into bite-sized, totally doable tasks. Chatting with Mike and Anne was a breeze, and the time just zipped by. I came away not just loaded with practical tips I can start using right now, but also buzzing with inspiration and excitement to see where all these new ideas take my glamping business. Big thanks Mike and Anne – you guys rock, and I can’t wait to put all your advice into action!
— James, Go Wildish Glamping and Branding Workshop Client

Great session, you were so well prepared. The advice was well worth it, and you shared so many things that we hadn’t even considered yet. We took it all to heart, and can’t wait to implement all your suggestions to take our camp to the next level. Get ready for the good stuff!
– Scott and Janet from Treehouse Cove Lodge – Glamping Consulting Clients

“The course was very informative, I learned a lot about designing a physical space, about the customers and the experience they want to have (accommodations, food, etc). It really helped me put together a plan that’s going to help me create my glamping world. Thanks, Mike & Anne!”
— Mark R, Honeylight Glamping. Watch the full video testimonial

“I attended the Glamping Show in Colorado recently, not only to get ideas on adding a third unique rental for my property but also how to make the guest experience even better. When I heard the session that Mike & Anne did about the guest perspective, I couldn’t write fast enough. Everything they shared was like golden nuggets of information. After their session, I knew I wanted to learn more, so it was a delight to meet them, get a couple of copies of their books for our rentals, and set up a time to take the first step in their Glamping Consulting & creative services. Mike and Anne were so accommodating; they asked about our history, how I got to where I was, and what my goals were. With that, began idea after idea from Mike and Anne. I was truly grateful when they shared some things to watch out for if wanting to go in a certain direction. Their advice and feedback was invaluable! The things they shared about implementing services and thoughtful touches to enhance the guest experience have already done wonders–we got positive feedback from the very first guest and the reviews have been amazing! I’m excited to continue to partner with Mike and Anne as we grow our glamping business, and grateful to them for helping me deliver the best guest experiences.”
— Jenny of Roosevelt Glamping and a HoneyTrek Glamping Consulting Client

“Mike and Anne are as kind as they are competent. We are accustomed to the “corporate-types” in our day job so we were so thrilled to meet glamping consultants who are genuine, candid, and knowledgeable when contracting with Mike and Anne. They are not “corporate cats” at all, and thank goodness for that…but yet, exceptionally bright, prepared, and professional. ‘There is no substitute for experience’ is an adage we all know and precisely what we were seeking in trying to craft our ideal thought process surrounding our glamp camp. Mike and Anne bring experience in spades. We have done business with them virtually and have met them in person…there is no interruption in service integrity with either medium.”
— Glynn, HoneyTrek Glamping Consulting Client

“We were thrilled with the Glamping course they put on for us. It turned into a note-taking frenzy and idea session that took on a life of its own. We were all so excited about all of the ways to make a glamping site special and we could have gone on for hours more, so we will need to schedule our second session to unlock the rest of their secrets. If you get the chance, Mike and Anne are wonderful to work with. We hope you enjoy their workshop as much as we did!”
— Sam H., soon-to-be glamping operator, and HoneyTrek Glamping Consulting client

It has been a pleasure working with Anne and Mike through the years. They’re very organized and personable with a professional and go-getter attitude. Without hesitation, they go above and beyond for and I can’t say enough good things about this lovely couple.
— Mey Martinez, Editorial Coordinator & Product Manager,

“The Howards’ book ‘Comfortably Wild’ finally gives us a comprehensive view into the vast world of glamping. It is as relevant and delightful for industry experts as it is for first-time glampers.”
— Ruben Martinez, co-founder of Glamping Hub and American Glamping Association

It was a privilege to have Mike and Anne come to our property and share their glamping knowledge with us. Their extensive travel throughout the world makes them a terrific resource in identifying what makes a glamping accommodation and facility unique and memorable. They pointed out several key areas that would further enhance the glamping experience for our guests.
— Matt Z., owner of Airydale Retreat and HoneyTrek Glamping Workshop client

Helpful and inspiring, ‘Comfortably Wild’ is the guide that every North American traveler needs.”
