Experience the peace and beauty of the great outdoors in style! Our Glamping Getaway packages are designed to give you a traditional camping feel with a hint of luxury. Stroll through the Formal Gardens, enjoy a casual hike along the trails, stargaze in the Meadow — and then rest up for another day of adventure while comfortably indoors!
Reserve your room (Tuesday – Saturday*) in the Mansion or a guesthouse, and prepare to explore Allerton while making lasting memories. Take time to slow down and really get away with family, friends, that special someone, or solo! (If you’re interested in bringing a group (less than 50 people), ask us about reserving an entire building.)
Our staff will snap a pic upon arrival to document the start of your adventure, as well as provide maps and answer any questions about what to see/do. (Find electronic versions of our maps here.) You’ll have access to an Adventure Bag, which includes a nature journal, themed scavenger hunts, and a flashlight for nighttime exploring! After night falls, gather around your private fire pit to enjoy the sounds of nature at night, or grab a glass of wine or a cup of tea and cuddle up inside with that book you’ve been meaning to read.
Give us a call at 217-333-3287 for more information or to book your Glamping Getaway! Our lodging safety policies and procedures will ensure you and your guests enjoy a clean, safe stay.

The former home of artist and philanthropist Robert Allerton, the Mansion offers guests a unique stay through its historic charm.

the house in the woods
Take your getaway a step further with a secluded stay amongst nature in The House in the Woods. Located a half-mile from the Mansion, you and your guest(s) will find peace during your night in one of the spacious rooms. Take a walk to the Formal Gardens or get a bite to eat from downtown Monticello and have a picnic in the Meadow.
Just steps away from the Mansion, The Gatehouse features quaint, large guest rooms with a traditional vibe. Pack the cooler and pair your stay in this historic space with a game night on the Gatehouse Lawn, adventure around the Park, or reconnect during an evening around the fire pit telling stories and making s’mores.
