Enjoy the Lotus Belle (Luxury Camping)

Bella Green B&B is proud to offer a unique Lotus Belle Luxury Glamping experience as part of our eclectic bed and breakfast mix. A cross between an African Safari tent and a Morrocan yurt, this beautiful space is sure to please even the most discriminating guest. It has a one-of-a-king outdoor bathhouse with toilet and shower that faces into the view which out guests LOVE! It can be open or super private – your choice.

Inside you will find lovely antiques, soothing colors, a comfortable queen bed with luxury sheets and linens, side tables with lamps, a small round table with chairs, a romantic faux fireplace, and AC/heating unit plus two fans to help keep you cool. There’s also a mini fridge with coffee pot, a glass sink with on-demand hot/cold water, towels, cups, glasses, silverware, plates and more! The tent, 10 feet high and 16 feet in diameter, has a colorful Moroccan-designed roof that casts playful shadows overhead! Kick off your shoes and stay awhile…. YOU WILL LOVE IT HERE!

Bella Green B&B is where you go to relax and enjoy nature’s best. The views from the tent door will take your breath away and the extra amenities (private hot tub and private bathhouse with outdoor shower and traditional toilet with a view across the valley) will make you smile!

The outside firepit/grilling area has long downhill views to Bandera (16 miles away) and far beyond and you can watch the sun go down while you cook your dinner over the wood-fire grill if desired. Those who stay here report that the stars ARE truly brighter in Texas so come see for yourself! A welcoming treat, 6 sticks of pre-cut firewood, our special filtered alkalinized water, and coffee/tea options are also included as a part of your stay. Our artisan breakfast is optional and available for an extra $10 per person (have a look at some of the pictures and then decide).

LOTUS BELLE  SPECIFIC INFORMATION: We ask that you kick off your shoes as you enter the tent to help keep it clean inside and suggest you bring flip flop or sandals for walking to the hot tub and/or the bathhouse. The hot tub will be “neutral” in temperature during the warm summer days to cool off. The toilet in the bathhouse is hooked our septic system, and is a real toilet.
