Suite Tea, the Kansas City based hospitality company known for their elevated camping suites and unique experiences, proudly announces their new partnership with Kansas City, Missouri Parks and Recreation, making way for their second glamping village in the heart of Kansas City.
With plans to open calendars for reservations on June 25, 2021, Suite Tea at Camp Lake of Woods will feature a total of 6 glamping suites that sleep up to 26 guests. Suites will be located just within walking distance from unique attractions like GoApe Zipline and Adventure Park, Swope Memorial Golf Course, and just a few minutes drive to The Kansas City Zoo and the Starlight Theatre.
Unlike most camping accommodations, Suite Tea offers high-end, spacious bell tents with large memory foam beds, and gadgets like generators and air conditioners to help both the camping newbies and the camping experts enjoy their experience during each stay.
The new suites will also have their own identity and distinctive decor, giving guests a little something different to look forward to at each village. Moreover, the scenic park will take guests off the beaten path and immerse them in one of Kansas City’s crown jewel parks.
“Gratitude. That’s what’s driving us right now.” Said Suite Tea Co-founder and CEO Tiffany Watts. “Not only do we have the opportunity to create something beautiful at a place where I’ve created some of my favorite childhood and adult memories, but we get to give back to our city in a big way!”
Suite Tea will offer suites from their opening date in June through October 31st. A portion of the proceeds from each stay will go towards the rehabilitation of the notable Blue Mills cabins in Camp Lake of the Woods, which are now dilapidated and unusable. Inspired by the potential of the cabins and the new opportunities this rebuild will bring Kansas Citians and the historic Swope Park, Co-founders Tiffany Watts and Heather Shelton plan to start renovations this year and expect to be able to offer both tent glamping and cabin stays in The Blue Mills cabins at the start of their Spring 22′ season.
“Kansas City is the heart of the US. We are so thankful to have the opportunity to bring Suite Tea to the heart of Kansas City, partnering with the parks and rec department and launching suites at Camp Lake of the Woods.” Said Heather Shelton, Co-founder and CSO at Suite Tea. “Swope Park is a Kansas City treasure, and being able to connect people with incredible local experiences like Go Ape, The Kansas City Zoo, Starlight Theatre, the municipal Golf Course and the many Park trails and adventures is like a dream come true. Kansas City, we are here for YOU!”
Although the excitement for their first glamping village at Watkins “C” Ranch still rages on, the Suite Tea team is thrilled to expand and work alongside their new partners at KCMO Parks and Rec to give guests a new collection of suites and attractions to choose from.
