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.
Here’s a popular Airbnb yurt in Boise and accommodates up to six guests. The yurt is in a 0.36-acre garden and has wood floors, electricity, a gas heating stove, and skylight. Guests access the bathroom with a clawfoot tub and shower in the detached shop. You’ll also have access to a pergola and outdoor fireplace when you stay here. It stays warm and cozy in the winter months for your glamping trip to Idaho. From here, you can walk five minutes to the Buena Vista Trailhead to get in some outdoor recreation. Expect some street noise here on 36th Street, and please don’t disturb the tenants living in the main home on the property.
Another glamping yurt to consider when you’re in Idaho is this Garden Valley one that accommodates five guests. It is in the hills above the South Fork of the Payette River and in a secluded spot surrounded by pine trees. You’ll love the views from the wrap-around deck. This is a great place to stay if you want to hike, bike, ski, snowshoe, and take a dip in hot springs. However, you should know that it does not have air conditioning, plumbing, unlimited electricity, Wi-Fi, or cell service. Therefore, it’s best for getting away from city life and truly disconnecting. You can use the propane stove and cookware in the kitchen, 10 gallons of drinking water that’s stocked before you arrive, a dry cooler, and firewood left for you here. There is no shower but an outhouse you can use for the bathroom while staying in this yurt located on a small mountain ranch. The dog fee is $10 per dog, per night, for up to two well-behaved dogs.
Campers are also fun to stay in for glamping Idaho, such as this one for two people in Horseshoe Bend. It offers a “dry camping” getaway with an outhouse for a bathroom and is a pet-free zone. The camper has handmade curtains and new throw pillows, as well as outdoor showers and an outdoor cooler. The Santa Fe camper is near other Airbnb properties offered by the host and has a private gravel driveway and parking spot. This is an affordable glamping spot that has gotten five-star reviews from many guests because of its unique hideaway vibe and cozy atmosphere for a quiet and fun trip.
You can also stay in this great yurt in McCall, Idaho to go glamping with up to four people inside the space. It’s a spacious 16-foot yurt with a viewing deck that’s in the West Central Mountains of Idaho and near hiking, biking, golf, snowshoeing, and backcountry skiing. The yurt is also 20 minutes from downtown McCall. You’ll be on 40 acres of private land here and by national forest land. The bathroom is a cute outhouse about 50-60 yards from the yurt. It’s on a private road past a locked gate and accessible by SUVs and AWD vehicles under normal conditions in the warm months. In the winter, the road is not plowed, so you’ll need to access it by snowshoes or cross-country skis – all part of the adventure!
Here’s a stylish and popular glamping tent in Irwin, Idaho that’s a fun place for two people. This is a glamping hotspot because it has all the comforts of home while still being a nature experience. It’s decorated with Arabian-style décor and has electricity, heat, A/C, a couch, queen-size bed, mini-fridge, a heated blanket, and a private bathroom with a tub and shower. It’s right off of Highway 26, so the host provides earplugs and a sound machine if you’re sensitive to noise. It practices extra cleaning and sanitation measures and has parking for a vehicle. It’s fun to stay here to check out Jackson Hole and Grand Teton National Park because both are easy day trips.
Mabel is another retro-style camper that’s ideal for two guests in Idaho. It’s located in Lava Hot Springs and has a queen-size bed, chairs, and side table. There is no bathroom or camper inside. There is heat inside to keep you warm in the winter and a fire pit and picnic table to use outdoors. It’s right along Fish Creek and offers lovely views. You can access portable toilets, hiking trails, and fishing in the campground.
This yurt is in Lowman, Idaho and works well for two guests who love glamping. It’s a mountain retreat with wildlife in the area and hot springs just around the corner. You’ll need to bring your own bedding when you stay here. Grab food and drinks at Lowman Inn Pizzeria nearby, which also has live music on certain days. If you stay here in the winter, plan to bring good hiking boots and snowshoes because there are unmaintained trails that lead to the yurt.
Enjoy an authentic Idaho glamping experience at this Horseshoe Bend Airbnb that’s a camper to transport you back to a simpler time. It’s an affordable spot that even allows pets free of charge. This is a “dry camping” spot that has outdoor solar showers. Come here to disconnect from city life because there is no Wi-Fi, television, and limited cell service. To bring your kids along, you can pitch a tent next to the camper. The host offers free-range eggs, educational lessons about horses, Dutch oven meals, two-hour river trips, and campfire serenades. The host has unique old RVs and eventually will have tiny houses for rent here too. It’s on the same property as the Santa Fe camper listed above! Bathroom usage is via an outhouse that is shared by all guests, as there is no running toilet.
Come to the Athol area of Idaho to stay in this popular yurt for up to four guests. It’s private and cozy with a detached bathroom. It’s also close to Farragut State Park and Bayview. You’ll enjoy being in this private yard, having an equipped kitchen, and fresh eggs available with the first half-dozen complimentary. There’s an outdoor area with a patio table, chairs, and a fire pit.
Another trailer accommodation on the Horseshoe Bend property mentioned above is the popular Golden Falcon. It’s best for two people who are under 6’2” in height. Once again, this is a “dry camping” style experience with no Wi-Fi, but most phone services work here besides AT&T. It’s a wonderful spot for a couple with a small pet. The space offers private parking with keyless arrival at any time. There are garbage cans and recycling for guests to use here.
Located in Pocatello, this yurt sleeps up to four guests and offers handcrafted furniture and mountain views. Guests here enjoy the great breakfasts delivered to them and the cozy wood-burning stove for warmth. Just steps away from the yurt is a clean composting outhouse. Other perks are the big-screen TV with DVDs, games, microwave, snacks, and a trampoline set up outside by the picnic table and firepit. The famous Lava Hot Springs are about a 45-minute drive from here to check that out.
Tent cabins are also unique glamping spots, such as this one in Lava Hot Springs. It works for two guests and is a military-style tent cabin along the Portneuf River. Enjoy the mountain views, firepit, and plenty of privacy here. The tent is right off Highway 30 and behind the KOA mini-market and campground. For an extra fee, you can get a hot breakfast from 8am – 10am. The shared bathroom for guests is a two-minute walk from the site.
You’ll also love this treehouse in Ketchum for three guests when you’re in the mood for glamping. It has a nice deck, bathroom down the stairs and about 20 steps away, and has free Wi-Fi. Other perks are a desk for working, camp kitchen access, and a commercial washer and dryer to use onsite for a small fee. The treehouse has a double bed and single loft bed, as well as a fenced yard.
This retro camper offers a glamping experience for two guests in Lava Hot Springs. It’s on 60-acres of mountain property and fully remodeled with a queen-size bed, electricity, heater, drinking water, and a table and chairs. The camper does not have a kitchen or bathroom, but you can use the portable toilets in the campground when you go glamping here.
For a glamping trip in Cascade, choose this yurt for your larger group of up to eight people. It’s in the Payette River Mountains and about two hours north of Boise. The yurt does not have electricity or plumbing, and it’s about a quarter-mile hike from the parking area.
