If you haven’t gotten your family into glamping yet, what are you waiting for? It’s the perfect way to get out of the city and into nature without having to set up a tent. We had the opportunity to visit Huttopia’s newest outpost in Lake County’s wine country and its location combines beautiful, rolling hills with the Six Sigma Ranch vineyards just around the corner. Families will love the focus on communal gathering spaces, delicious food, activities for kids, and even a swimming pool to take a dip in during the hot summer months. And just wait until you see how decked-out the glamping tents are. Here’s the full scoop!

Huttopia Wine Country

Huttopia Wine Country glamping with kids

When you arrive at Huttopia Wine Country, you’ll park your car in the gravel lot and head up to the lodge where you’ll check-in. This large indoor/outdoor building is where you can play games, enjoy evening s’mores, grab a coffee or a snack, and kick back and relax with other travelers. There’s even a camp store with snacks and gear available in case you forgot anything at home.

Head up the hill to your glamping tent after check-in. Staff is available to assist you with carting your gear up the hill as no cars are allowed past the parking lot. This means you can let your kids bike around the property without having to worry about cars. Brilliant!

♬ September – Earth, Wind & Fire

We’ve stayed at well over a dozen glamping properties and the glamping tents at Huttopia really did impress us with their set-up and included items. Our tent had a double bed along with a twin over double bunk bed, which could sleep up to five people. This Trappeur Pacific tent also has its own bathroom with shower, kitchenette, and deck with BBQ. Running water was available for doing dishes and showering.

They really thought of everything you might need for glamping from cooking gear to extra blankets and lanterns. Tents had a cooler for storing food and down at the lodge, you could grab reusable cold packs to keep everything chilled. Best of all, the tents are all solar-powered! FYI: Some tents have communal restroom facilities instead of private in-tent bathrooms.

Things to Do at Huttopia Wine Country

We can pretty much guarantee that you’ll see little of your kids during your stay at Huttopia. There are miles of trails for mountain biking and hiking, so be sure to bring your bikes or plan on renting an e-bike while you are there. Cornhole, ping-pong, foosball, and puzzles are all available for guests to use. The property also has a large swimming pool with kiddie pool where you can cool off after a hot day on the trails.

During the summer months, Huttopia arranges activities like crafting, treasure hunts, and outdoor games on the weekends. Kids will also love the playground that’s right next to the pool.

Movie nights under the stars are a fun way to relax after a busy day. Spread out a blanket or set up your camp chair to enjoy a kid-friendly flick.

Good to know: While you’ll really want to unplug at Huttopia, they do have WiFi available at the lodge if you need to check emails during your stay.

Dining at Huttopia

While we were at Huttopia, they offered an optional dinner that was quite delicious! If this is available during your stay, you’ll definitely want to add it on as it not only ensures that you can get out of doing the dishes but the food is excellent. We had sausage with salad and veggies one night and chicken skewers another night.

In the morning, you can snag free coffee from the lodge and pastries were also available for purchase. It looked like they planned to expand their coffee service to add espresso beverages in the coming months.

Visiting Six Sigma Ranch While at Huttopia Wine Country

You’ll want to plan a visit to Six Sigma Ranch for a kid-friendly wine tasting while you’re staying at Huttopia. If you’re there on a Saturday, book a winery tour that’s conducted via a vintage all-terrain Pinzgauer. You’ll get to see the expansive property, sip wine (or juice for the kids) in one of the vineyards, and then enjoy a wine tasting at the end of your tour. The kids can run around the casual, outdoor wine-tasting area and check out the pigs and goats while you relax in the shade. Swing into the shop to snag a bottle or two to take back to Huttopia and grab some cheese and crackers to go along with your tasting.

Tips for Staying at Huttopia Wine Country

This area can get quite hot in the summer months so keep that in mind when planning your stay. Temps dip in the evening so dressing in layers is recommended. Be sure to take advantage of the extra blankets available in your tent to stay cozy at night. The glamping tents are not heated so it will likely be quite chilly when you wake up.

Be prepared to get dirty during your stay (this is glamping after all!) as the dirt roads kick up quite a bit of dust.

Getting to Huttopia Wine Country

Napa Yard | Kate Loweth

Huttopia is about an hour from Napa so you can easily plan a stop there on the way back home. We grabbed lunch at the beer garden at Napa Yard on our way back to San Jose and it was a lovely spot for kids and parents alike. Located right along the river, you’ll find cornhole games, live music, and sports playing on the screens. The menu had a lot of kid-approved options and you’ll definitely want to get the pretzels with cheese for the table to share.

Huttopia opens for the 2024 season in mid-April so you’ll want to get your spot reserved so you can check it out.
