First time using this tentWell, the tent held up in a winter storm, would I recommend it for for really heavy snow, no. The six inches we had it managed it well. I know it's not really designed for it but it still did an amazing job. I really like all the small details, the pockets and the ability to really secure this tent to the ground. I can't wait to see how this tent does in the spring, summer and fall.

Naming this tent the Guesthouse is spot on!So much space! Well thought out design internally, easy to put up. Took about 10 minutes to setup and 15 minutes to break it down. Lots of pockets and features. Kids love having their own room. Great tent! Well done Marmot!

So far so goodSo far so good with this tent. Have used it once on a 4 day trip. On first attempt, without any practice, it took us about 30 minutes to set up, in the pouring rain, me and my seven-year-old son. Expect to be a faster set up after a few practice sessions and with another adult who can handle the weight and size of the lengthy poles; the tent is very large.
I agree with the previous review that I also thought that in the “sleeping” part of the 10th, there was also a room divider. Not a big deal that there wasn’t, but I wish that there were a small tab on the inside just at this point, that you can hang an additional room divider. There are several other tag points inside the tent so it would seem too much of a problem to put two or three more here for this purpose.
I don’t have any problem with the mash used on this tent. Having experience with several other Higher-end tents (though smaller size,) the mesh is consistent with what other manufacturers at this price point provide. We were camping on northern NH and the black flies were horrendous- not sure they would have made it through a larger mesh, but there were just as many biting ‘no-see-ums,’ which certainly would have made it through a larger mesh.
Weatherproofing seemed very good; on the first night we had pouring rain all night but there was not a drop of water the end of the tent except for during the set up, When the mesh was exposed to the elements before we got the fly on. I would say that the 3rd pole, which supports the sleeping area, is freestanding, which leaves this section of roof a bit loose, next trip I would guy-line it out to pull this section fully taut, but like I said, even without doing so we had 10 hours of heavy rain without any leaks.
At this price point, I would like for the optional groundcover to be included, though it is not routine for manufacturers to do so. I would like for the vestibules to be a bit larger, but I’m a vestibule person.

Perfect TentGreat sized tent for two or more. Have set the tent up but not used for camping yet. It checked all the boxes I needed a tent to check. The additional "room" in the front is spacious and the awning feature is amazing. If you are looking for a large tent for the family this is the one.

Great foul weather tentThe number one job of a tent is to keep the occupants dry. This tent, with its excellent full cover rain fly, has exceeded my expectations. I have owned many tents and the Marmot Guest House 6P performed better than any others I have owned in rain. The inside of the main tent and vestibule were bone dry after extremely heavy downpours and day long rains. For its size it is easy to put up and take down. The tent is not completely free standing, the the tent and rain fly must be staked in the back end. If you want to stay dry, this tent is worth the money.

Good quality but not perfectWe bought this tent and set it up in the backyard prior to taking it for a weekend camping trip. It was okay to set up with two people and probably took us 25-30 minutes that first time. Subsequent set-ups probably took us about 20 minutes. It was a little tricky to get the fly on just due to the large size and height of the tent.
Tent is spacious and appears well-made. There are MANY zippers and panels - some areas could have been streamlined a bit (some unnecessary zippers). The zipper quality, poles, clips, and fly material are very good. We got a light rain on our first trip and have no doubts that in a downpour, we would stay dry.
We are slightly concerned about the mesh. It has a very tight weave, which was great for keeping out gnats. However, it appeared to be quite delicate and actually came with a couple of small snags. It seems like it might damage easily in the future (delicate materials and camping rarely mix). Also, possibly due to the tight weave, it didn't breath well and the screened area had a greenhouse type effect. It was definitely NOT comfortable to sit in on a sunny, 84-degree day, despite having the awning out for shade. We wondered if the dark color of the fly could be responsible for the heat, so we tried all sorts of things, including zipping up multiple fly panels and taking the fly off. The stuffiness inside really didn't improve.
We miss-read the description and were under the impression that the large, main "sleeping" area had a room divider. For clarification, there's ONE zipped divider between the front screen room (5ft x 8ft) and the large back area. Ideally we would have liked more room designated to the screened area. The 5x8 ft area worked well for two chairs and a small table, but it would be nice to be able to add a couple chairs to enjoy that space with friends when the bugs are bad. We needed to add an indoor-outdoor rug as we feared our chair legs and dog's paws might poke a hole in the tent.
Overall we probably wouldn't purchase this tent again. Since the price point is so high, we expected it to be perfection. The screen room, which was great in theory, could have been bigger and more breathable. It just wasn't comfortable to sit in during a summer day, which was super disappointing. We also aren't sure about the long-term durability of the mesh.

Worst tent for so much money!!This was the worst product I ever got. The amount of money spent you would think it would be amazing. NOPE! I personally fell in love with this tent by eye sight, since it seemed to be so roomie. Once it got set up in the camp site everyone was impressed as well as me, that ended quickly. When we went to sleep in the middle of the night it began to rain, and next thing you know the water started coming in the the inseams. Of course it didn’t end there, there were several other spots that the water started to drip in. It was 3am and I had to pack up and leave because the water didn’t stop dripping in and going on my family. Not only did I leave 2 days early that I had already paid for, I also got the footprint from a different website as well as a horrible camping experience. When I called customer service all they said was send it back and we will refund you the money. So now I have to go out of my way to return it, but I’m also out of luck with the footprint (add another 100 bucks), plus the rest of the two days that I paid for at the campground (another 125). My recommendation is DO NOT BUY!!!!

Guest house! 6pWe love the tent! It’s huge and having the screened in porch is so worth it! However the awning with the poles does not work. The poles do not stay up and hold the piece without being tied down, which still doesn’t work well. Also my tent was missing stakes, they did send them after a while.
