You’ll love this bright yellow trailer that’s a 1954 Silver Dome travel trailer that’s just minutes from the town of Taos. It has a full bedroom, bathroom with plumbing, kitchen, living room, and fenced yard. It’s a bright and sunny glamping spot with views of the mountains rather than city lights. Guests here enjoy the turquoise bathroom with its tub and shower, having heat with the two radiant heaters, and Wi-Fi. Come here to see what it’s like to live in a vintage trailer while having all the comforts of home. You’ll access the trailer up a gravel road and be in a really unique area. There are a couple of small dogs that live on the property, and you can bring your own small dog for a fee as well.
This amazing yurt sleeps six people and has four beds among the beautiful rock formations of Abiquiu. This glamping spot offers a rustic and tranquil experience and is just below Cerrito Blanco. It’s a 24-foot yurt that’s ideal for couples and families. You’ll love being in this high desert paradise with its Asian décor, woodwork details, equipped kitchen, and bathroom with a European-style shower. The bathroom and kitchen are about 50 steps down an outside path in the annex. There’s a covered outdoor patio here, as well as a wood-burning stove for heat. The host provides coffee-making supplies for guests. To get here, the yurt is 1.5 miles off of Highway 84 on a well-maintained dirt road.
Another great retro camping experience in the Taos area is this trailer that’s very popular on Airbnb. It hosts two guests and is romantic and about 12 miles east of Taos. The camper stays warm in the winter, has a tiny bathroom, and requires a 4WD/AWD vehicle in the winter to access it. The host lives on-premises and next door to the trailer. Guests can use the lovely hot tub at the host’s home. Other features are propane heat, a refrigerator, a stovetop, and a full-size bed. There is no shower or running water inside the camper – only a toilet. The camper is at 8,600 feet above sea level so this is a high-altitude glamping adventure!
We also love this glamping camper for two guests looking for a private retreat away from crowds. It has a queen bed, bathroom with shower, fridge, BBQ grill, and deck. It’s about 15-20 minutes from the Santa Fe Plaza, so it’s great for seeing the city and surrounding natural attractions. The space offers easy parking and has Wi-Fi about 50 yards away. Cell service is great here, but you can plan for a digital detox here too because there is no television or Wi-Fi inside the camper. Interestingly, the host is an ordained minister and can perform legal wedding ceremonies!
When you take the scenic drive of the Turquoise Trail (Highway 14), stay at this yurt that’s in an off-grid community that’s two miles off the road. The yurt is great for two guests and on a mesa at 6,800 feet elevation. You’ll be close to galleries and adventures from here, as well as live music and outdoor dining. This destination is an hour from Albuquerque and 30 minutes from Santa Fe. Your host here has other rentals available too on the property. You can join an outdoor restorative yoga class onsite when you stay here, use the shared community kitchen and outhouse, and hike on the trails too. Dogs are allowed here with a $10 pet fee.
A yurt to consider for your New Mexico glamping trip for a larger group is this one that sleeps up to eight people. The yurt is 26 feet in diameter and has four comfy bunk beds with pillows and blankets. The yurt also offers a mini-fridge, coffee pot, toaster, microwave, and other kitchen features. There is a separate bathroom and laundry room that you can use, as well as outside seating to enjoy the mountain views. When you stay here, you’ll also have access to 22 acres of land with a labyrinth and nearby trails.
Here’s a stylish camper for up to three people that is just two minutes off of the historic Turquoise Trail. It overlooks the town of Cerrillos and is three miles from Madrid. Features of the camper include an equipped kitchen with a fridge and stove, TV, Wi-Fi, a hairdryer, iron and ironing board, and a selection of coffee and teas. You can enjoy the entire 40-acre property when you stay here and see the starry night sky of the high desert with low light pollution. This is an eco-friendly glamping spot with solar power and water reclamation.
Here’s a vintage trailer for two glamping guests available on Airbnb to take your mind off of stress and the busyness of normal life. It’s an enchanting camper with an outdoor soaking tub on a deck that overlooks the landscape. The camper is fully renovated and has a private restroom. It is near the U.S. and Mexico border, by the Union Pacific rail line for train-spotting, and also steps from a year-round farmers’ market.
Here’s a mountain yurt that’s ideal for a solo traveler and that offers high-speed internet, a full-size bed, and a mini kitchen. Stay here to be just 10 minutes from Taos Ski Valley and 20 minutes to the Taos Plaza. Here you can use the off-grid water system, shared bathhouse, and wood stove for heat. This yurt is a separate dwelling from the owner’s cabin, and the bathhouse is right behind the yurt and shared with other guests.
Head to Carlsbad, New Mexico for this glamping experience that accommodates up to six guests. It is about an hour from Guadalupe Peak/Pine Springs visitor center and about 40 minutes from the Carlsbad Caverns visitor center. The camper is on five acres of private property in a quiet area. It has a porch and surrounding yard to use. Hot water is available here for campers, but be conservative because it can run out quickly.
It’s also fun to stay in an Airstream when you’re in the mood for glamping, such as this one for up to six guests in El Prado. You’re 15 minutes from Taos and Arroyo Secco here and 30 minutes from Taos Ski Valley. The camper is on five acres of land with mountain views. It has a fridge, stove, small bathroom with a toilet and shower, and air conditioning. There’s a fire pit with a grill to cook on and plenty of space to use your mountain bike or dirt bike here. It’s a great place to try tiny home living and to explore the Taos area in a unique and comfy way. Don’t forget to bring your bathing suit and water shoes to use the hot springs!
Also located in the Santa Fe area is this yurt for up to four people. It has a herd of 11 llamas, mountain views that you can view from two decks, and a location that’s five minutes from the Santa Fe River Walk Park. You can take a llama tour, feed, the llamas, and get free admission to the Roswell alien-themed roller rink on Friday nights when you stay here. There is no air conditioning but the yurt stays comfortable year-around because of the moderate climate.
Instead of staying in a hotel when you visit the big city of Albuquerque, you can also choose to have a glamping experience here for something truly unique. This trailer is a popular Airbnb glamping spot that is great for two guests. The host couple has restored this vintage trailer that is a few steps away from the main house, which is where you can use the facilities. You can also use the pool and hot tub on this two-acre property.
Located in Questa, this camper sleeps up to five guests. It’s on a gated, private road and a charming 37-foot travel trailer with a slide-out. You’ll be close to lots of outdoor recreation and especially great fishing here. This RV has full water, sewer, and electric utilities that the host manages for you so you’ll never have to deal with dumping tanks. Pets are not allowed in the camper, although there are some outdoor cats on the property.
