Montana is a place of sprawling plains, towering mountains, sparkling water and more outdoor experiences than one person would know what to do with. Panoramic views define this state, as do prominent places like Glacier National Park. All that being said, it’s an outstanding spot for some serious glamping, and quite a few spectacular tents await you, featuring luxe amenities, all within an environment that immerses guests into the outdoors. Up for glamorous camping? These Montana establishments are ready to stun.
Being close to the town of Hot Springs, the simple, yet well-equipped tent is, well, close to hot springs. Enjoy sprawling fields meshed with mountains, then traverse to mineral-enriched waters to heal your mind and soul. A solar shower and bathroom are onsite, but you’ll want a method of lighting your way at night. In town, guests can munch on some pretty good food, including dishes from a fantastic organic cafe.
Is it still glamping if you’re in an upscale treehouse? We vote yes. Whole trees protrude through the multilevel retreat further intertwining families with nature while offering extreme comfort. Isn’t that what it’s all about? A stone’s throw from the stunning landscapes in Glacier National Park and Whitefish Mountain Ski Resort, adventure awaits. Full bathrooms, expansive decks and spiraling staircases scream high end, while you’re still right there at it all, from cross country ski trails to an abundance of woods to discover.
Built by a family who now serves as the hosts, the yurt has more wood within its construction, with metal accents that give it that rugged Montana feel. A skylight above the lower bed allows glimpses of the night sky above, which has been noted to feature great highlights of the Milky Way.
Formerly a forest service tent, this cozy little shelter has little conveniences like a coffee pot, wood-burning stove and a fire pit to chill by at night. Lots of little extras are strewn about, and a metal-enclosed, open roof shower allows you to bathe amongst the tall pines, firs and birds. Glacier National Park is literally right there, so this lovely place is perfect as an adventurist’s homemade in the wilderness.
Crescent Ridge Farm is in a valley with a complimenting stream and mountains, so naturally, it’s a great glamping site too. Guests can take in the surroundings from the patio, which houses an adorable southwestern chiminea, or they can stroll the flower and vegetable gardens on the property. The accommodations are within a 1960s Airstream, with every inch of the expected charm.
A Quonset hut is a semi-circular structure, and this one sits on a scenic portion of land near impeccable cross country skiing terrain. With electricity and a cooking stove, guests will be comfy. Two sets of bunk beds offer optimal sleeping space for four adults. Water jugs are available upon request.
Sheepherders once lived in this antique wagon, and it’s so fitting that the wagon still resides on an old historic farm. Sheep are even grazing in the surrounding fields. With a hard top cover and plush bed, this is a wonderful place to hunker down when visiting Bozeman, which is minutes away.
Greenough is maybe a 30-minute drive from Missoula if you’re traveling slow—this working Montana ranch getaway offers some seriously breathtaking canopies that we have a hard time even classifying as a tent. Hence, we have the word “glamping”, for beautiful camping spots that feature electricity, comfy beds and lovely naturalistic design, like you’ll find at Paws Up. Whether you’d like to totally immerse in the relaxation of it all via, yoga, swimming and spa treatments, or if you’d rather go rugged, riding horses and driving cattle, you’ll be staying in some pretty nice digs amongst the stars.
