Peaceful, private, great place to get away from it all. Half a mile from an award winning winery,10 miles from downtown Wenatchee with a deluxe glamping tent.
I was lucky enough to spend the weekend before Earth Day at The Aerie, a picturesque campsite on a Wenatchee hostess' private land. With full hookups for smaller rigs (28 ft or under) overlooking the stunning Columbia River Gorge, it's hard to imagine a prettier (or quieter!) spot to soak in the views.
In addition to the RV site, The Aerie also has a beautiful platform with a glamping tent during the warmer months, which you can also rent. Should you want the RV camping experience but don't have your own rig, Maria has partnered with another local female entrepreneur who will rent you an Airstream and park it at The Aerie (or other locations, for that matter) in time for your stay.
The Aerie is just a short drive from downtown Wenatchee, and winds up a volcanic hillside dotted with private homes and apple orchards. Maria welcomed me to her property and let me know how to reach her if I needed anything. Both the RV site and tent site are next to her garden and chicken coop, and Maria was generous enough to leave some of her hens' fresh eggs in the Airstream fridge for my breakfast. There were two chairs and a little rug set up so I could enjoy the view, and a short walk down the hillside is a swing facing west for prime sunset views.
If you're looking for a thoughtful, considerate host, stunning scenery, and a laid back vibe, The Aerie is just right. It's hard to find this blend of convenience, scenery, good conversation, and glamping comfort. A+
