User Review: Northwest Territory Olympic Cottage Deluxe Cabin Tent
Ease of Setup: difficult
Price Paid: $199
I purchased this tent at k-mart this summer. We just went on a family camping trip last month and were able to use this tent for the first time. WOW it is the condo of tents - my whole family loved our House.
Erecting the tent was fairly difficult because the instructions were of no help. However, if you are familiar with tents you can put it up in about 30 min with 2 people. I am sure next time will be easier, we did label the poles.
I have read some of the reviews and I went through similar problems with the Northwest vacation cottage . We had a storm and 2 poles broke and we had a collapse with the roof. I realized that we did not have it staked down properly. I say this because my sisters both owned the same tent and during the same storm their tents were fine. Upon careful inspection of ours, the general belief of everyone was that our rainfly was not properly installed. We did have some rain on this trip and this tent did fine.
I love having the 2 closets, it is great for keeping your tent tidy. It is huge, we like having space. It is just my husband and I and my 7 year old son. I can say that it would sleep 6 easily and again I like space.
The windows are great, 2 in the front, 2 on the sides and 1 in the back. When you open all of them you have great air flow. It has a couple of nice hanging compartments that are a nice touch and very handy. I think that the tent looks great too - much like a house.
The only thing that I would change is that it would have 2 doors instead of one. If you love space, this is the tent for you.
