Room Service Top Picks: Glamping Getaways

Here are the best glamping experiences out there.

The Daily Navigator strives to help you make the best decisions in travel. While we produce content according with strict editorial integrity this post may contain references to partner products. Here’s a full explanation for how our team makes money .

Is it just me, or has glamping been an up-and-coming travel trend for the last five years? Maybe its role as an unsung relationship hero means it’s constantly being rediscovered.

Partner A loves the outdoors. They revel in the filth and don’t shower for four days at a time. Out of love, Partner B follows them into the wilderness and develops a love-crippling resentment for the pseudo-Davy Crocket their partner becomes. Both leave heartbroken and sad. 

Glamping bridges that gap. All the nature. All the comfort. None of the bitterness. Coonskin hat optional.

Up for the “adventure”? Here are the best glamping experiences out there.

Our top picks: Glamping Getaways

Pennsylvania Glamping Pad

Pennsylvania, USA

$$ | Pics →

Sometimes, simple is best. Easily the campiest of our glamping options today, this elegant getaway is perfect for a relaxing weekend. Furnished as beautifully as any hotel room, yet nothing but a piece of fabric between you and the great outdoors.

Bring a few extra blankets, as it’s not heated unless you request a little electric one, but honestly, who would complain about cozying up with a loved one in this stunner?

Book your stay.

Wylder Hotels – Hope Valley

Hope Valley, Lake Tahoe

Traveling with a group who are all on vastly different points on the outdoorsy scale? Hope Valley is the spot for you. The impressive site on Lake Tahoe boasts a cornucopia of accommodation options, from immaculately designed cabins to merely throwing you a tent and pointing up the mountain.

Between those two extremes are relaxing glamping yurts and renovated Spartan Trailers so that anyone and everyone can immerse themselves in nature as little or as much as they want.

Big Cedar Lodge – Camp Long Creek

Missouri, USA

$$$$ | Pics →

I’m ignoring the wealth of truly astonishing accommodations Big Cedar Lodge has to offer — seriously, check it out, I’m in awe — and focusing on their mesmerizing glamping-tent-cabin.

Their virtual tour of the tent is pretty awesome, but you can take my word for it; these are little pieces of heaven in Missouri. Each glamping tent has its own balcony overlooking the lake, a private porch with an old-fashioned tin bathtub, and the interior is as close to luxury as you’ll ever find under canvas.

Book your stay.
