Top 13 Glamping Spots in Idaho

Idaho is an awesome place to get off the grid and switch up your routine while experiencing its long list of outdoor attractions. This is why we love glamping in Idaho in everything from treehouses to tents, yurts, and other creative accommodations that embrace the state’s adventurous spirit. Here are some of the best glamping spots in Idaho to check out for yourself!

Crystal Peak Lookout - Fernwood

This awesome treehouse listed on Airbnb hosts two guests and is ideal for a glamping experience. It’s in Fernwood, Idaho and open year-around with a wood-fired stove. It also has a wood-fired sauna below the treehouse to relax and warm up. This treehouse was built in 1959 and relocated here from Chewelah, Washington. When you stay here, you’ll have 13 acres of land to wander on and maybe even get to pick huckleberries or see fresh moose tracks in the snow. It’s essential to have a 4WD vehicle to access this glamping spot. Plan to stay here in the winter for an unforgettable experience that involves being greeted in town with hot cocoa and a vintage Snowcat, using the host’s sled and snowshoes, and getting beautiful views of the snow.
