Glamping is a fun and unique way to see new places, and one of the best places to give “glamorous camping” a try is in the New England states. The popularity of Airbnb properties has grown over the past few years as hotel alternatives, offering a variety of accommodation options such as tipis, yurts, tree houses, and other creative accommodations. Outdoor lovers can find an array of alluring glamping-style accommodations in the Northeast, which offer you a chance to explore local communities and embrace the beautiful natural surroundings. Here are some of our favorite glamping options in New England.

Surround Yourself with Nature Tipi – Chatham, New Hampshire
Justin and Sara offer a lovely off-the-grid tipi that is very secluded and perfect for getting in touch with the nature of New Hampshire. The tipi sleeps six guests, has an air mattress bed, and a half-bathroom. You’ll find this glamping spot on 45 acres in Evan’s Notch and close to Langdon Brook. It’s surrounded by a serene national forest, providing perfect access to hiking, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling trails. There are solar lights provided and a fire pit, but otherwise no electricity or running water. Come here for a rustic experience during any season. The site is typically accessible by car from May to December but not plowed in winter, so you’ll need to access it by snowshoes or snowmobile in the winter.
1975 Refurbished Airstream Trailer – Stonington, Connecticut
Another fun way to glamp in New England is to stay in a 1975 refurbished Airstream trailer in Connecticut in Laurie-Annya’s property. This vintage RV is located in the owner’s private backyard and off a country road. It is 30 feet long, has a private bedroom, queen-size bed, closet, living area, electric “fireplace” heater, couch, chair coffee table, and all the dishes and glasses you’ll need in the kitchen. This is an adults-only option that also has an outside patio with table, chairs, and a grill. Stay here in the spring, summer, or fall to enjoy the quiet seclusion and then the complimentary breakfast in the morning with breakfast bread and fresh fruit. The charming seaside village of Stonington is a couple miles from here, and the town of Mystic is about five miles away.
Treetop Sanctuary – Dunbarton, New Hampshire
Treehouses are also a fun way to go glamping, and this one accommodates four guests with one bedroom, two beds, and a half-bathroom. Your host, Jack, has set up a suspended path through the trees to reach the sanctuary, which is about 30 feet above the ground. It comes with a composting toilet, Wi-Fi, electricity, refrigerator, and wood stove. Children ages 10 and up are welcome here, and you’ll need to bring your own sleeping bags or blankets, as well as cookware if you wish to cook. This treehouse is situated on a lovely five-acre property, and the owner allows access to his home and bathroom too.
'Silo Studio' Cottage – Tyringham, Massachusetts
You can also go glamping in a silo in Massachusetts, thanks to Denise’s charming property in the Berkshires. This used to be the sculptor Henry Hudson Kitson’s summer studio and now offers a bedroom with 35-foot high ceiling and canopied bed. It’s perfect for two guests, as it has a bathroom, and looks out onto gardens and a brook. This silo studio is open-year around and situated on four acres off beautiful land. Pets are welcome for an additional fee. This is a lovely place to get away from it all in a rural setting near the Appalachian Trail.
Modern Tree Dwelling w/ Water Views + Cedar Hot Tub – Georgetown, Maine
Another fun treehouse glamping option is in coastal Maine and accommodates four guests with two bedrooms and one bathroom. Marsha, your host, actually has a couple other tree dwellings on her 21-acres property to choose from too. Here you’ll enjoy views of the river and access the elevated structures via rope bridge and get to use complimentary use of kayaks and canoes during your stay. There’s even a cedar hot tub here to warm you up and stay cozy on chilly nights.
Cozy Tipi Retreat at Nwyfre Farm – Brookfield, Vermont
We also love Jyl’s cozy tipi retreat in Brookfield, Vermont for two guests looking to camp out under a starry night sky and breathe in the cool mountain air. This tipi is on 13 secluded acres and on a secluded farm. There’s a camping stove/oven onsite, as well as food prep items, utensils, glasses, and cutlery. There’s cell signal out here but no Wi-Fi, making it a perfect getaway spot for outdoor adventures of hiking, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing. You can also visit the farm to see the horses and sample wild raspberries while you stay here.
Scenic Rural Glamp Site NH – Sanbornton, New Hampshire
Alex and Colleen offer a lovely tent glamping experience on a wooden platform with a small deck and awning in New Hampshire. The tent is 12 feet by 10 feet inside and has a full-size bed with bedding, and there is an outhouse, outdoor shower, and fire pit nearby. Come here for access to walking/snow sport trails on 20 acres of land and to really get off the grid. However, guests can use the old horse shed for water access and electrical charging needs.
Apple Blossom Cottage: A Tiny House – Jamaica, Vermont
Sarah’s adorable cottage in Jamaica, Vermont also offers an exciting glamping experience in a tiny house. This cottage sleeps five guests and has three beds and one bathroom. The tiny house comes equipped with linens, Wi-Fi, a kitchenette, shower, and flush toilet. It’s situated in the peaceful Green Mountains, allows pets for an additional fee, has a quaint porch that overlooks a lilac garden, and is close to the shops and dining of the town of Manchester.
Enchanting Solar Powered Yurt in Small Community - Rindge, New Hampshire
We also love glamping in yurts in New England, such as Hannah’s solar-powered yurt in the Monadnock Region. Hosts Dan and Hannah live on the property to assist with questions, and the property has woods for non-motorized recreation and a vegetable farm. Meanwhile, the yurt itself is about 35 feet in diameter with a smaller inner yurt inside for the bedroom, as well as a pull-out futon, full kitchen, and bathroom with laundry and solar electricity.
