Summary: Favorable Reviews

I recommend this one. After putting this up, it looks perfect. Ventilation was not a problem. Creating two doors is very helpful.

Summary: Unfavorable Reviews

A bit pricey compared to tents among its class. Tent stakes loops are too small. Just a suggestion, I hope they put or install some guidelines cause it's tough for us beginners.

The Big House 4 Green has two windows and two doors and a maximum center height of 5' 0 which is a tiny bit smaller than the average height of the 129 various 4 person tents we have studied. With 56 square feet of room inside, it is significantly smaller than some other 4-person tents, and it would be quite tight for you and, up to three other campers all through the 3-seasons this tent is suggested for. Smaller tents similar to this one can make a superb choice for people that appreciate spending plenty of hours outside the tent exploring.

One of the awesome things about cabin tents is, that the walls are near vertical making for a larger interior, this makes for a lot more headroom at the sides inside, making it feel much bigger than other types of tents, also, they tend to have wider floor areas, so they are great for families. Normally cabin tents most often used by groups going on a camping trip in a car or a truck as they are quite heavy when compared to dome tents. That dose though make them better suited to cooler nights.

Underneath you can browse a list of the tent's pros and cons.

Click or Tap on the Tab you Want to See!


  1. Freestanding. The Big House Green can support its own weight on any terrain. It does not even have to be staked down in most cases. But in case of strong winds, it is always best to secure it to the floor with the included steel stakes and guylines.
  2. Vestibule. Having one vestibule. Offers you somewhere to store shoes and other things that can get dirty, muddy, this is a huge plus.
  3. Has Gear Loft. It is good to see Big Agnes adding a gear loft in the interior to store some of your things.
  4. Has awnings. The awnings protect the walls of the tent.
  5. More than one door. With 2 doors, it is simpler to get in and out of the tent, in the middle of the night if needed.
  6. More than one window. With 2 windows it is easier to keep the tent cooler on a hot summers night.
  7. The rainfly completely covers the tent body. The rainfly covers the entire body of the tent from the top to the bottom and has a waterproof rating of 1500mm. Meaning it will easily protect you against heavy downpours.
  8. Other sizes are available. Big Agnes has also made this model available in Other Sizes.
  9. Low price. It is a great purchase for a 4 person cabin tent that provides this much space. Not a lot of tents available on the market give this level of quality for only $299.95


  1. Not roomy. With a floor area of 56 square feet, the Big House 4 is smaller than quite a few of the 129 other 4 person tents we have looked at.
  2. Footprint not Included. There is no included footprint, there is one sold separately designed for the Big House 4 footprint Even though the floor may be made of Polyester, it is still best to protect it further with a footprint, especially on rough terrain.
  3. Out of Stock. Unfortunately this particular tent is not currently in stock. It is still on the manufactures website the last time we checked.
  4. A tad heavy for backpacking. Even though the Big House 4, looks like a small tent, it is not ideal for backpacking as it weighs 8 pounds. This is quite a lot more than many other backpacking tents
  5. Storage Space. Due to the size of the tent, one cannot store a lot of gear inside..


4.2 Stars Logo

Our Ratings: 4.2 STARS

Big Agnes's Big House 4 Green tent is really good for bicycle & motorbike camping. There are a couple of other nice points not mentioned above which, we noticed and liked, while reviewing the model: Ready to pitch; with pre-cut guy lines and tensioners attached to fly, 10 interior mesh pockets, 2 bin pockets and Reflective guylines and reflective webbing.

With great ratings, and a center height of 5' and 56 square feet of area to sleep, this tent is like your very own modest home away from home. This enables you together with 2 other friends to share some really enjoyable moments exploring the great outdoors. We found a decent amount of pros about the tent that you can study above.

If you found this page looking for recommendations about this actual tent, our view is, it would make for a great acquisition. If you just happened to land on this page while browsing for a brand new tent having not heard of this brand or this model previously, it is perhaps a good idea to look at a few more similar tents.

Value for money: As far as value for your dollar, this tent is a lot cheaper than the normal price of all the one hundred and fifty, four-person tents we have looked at, all alone this does not make it excellent value for money. We also need to think about other things in detail, as we do with each tent.

When we determine the score of an individual tent, we look at tons of things, searching for points where the tent could outdo other similar tents and where it is lacking. In this case, with a total rating of 4.2 and the price details above, we can notice that with a ticket price of $299.95 Big Agnes's Big House 4 Green is a good deal and incredibly competitively priced when compared with similar tents.

The overall score shows that the quality and dimensions the tent provides were not skimped on to finish up with a price undoubtedly below the usual price for similar tents. It could make an exceptional choice for most campers searching for a comfy three-season cabin tent to camp in, that should serve you well for years to come.
