From cabins to campers, treehouses, and yurts, there are many different ways to try glamping in the United States. But to really get back to basics and experience the great outdoors, a few days in a tent might be just what you’ve been looking for.
Even if you don’t feel like truly roughing it, there are tent accommodations for rent on Airbnb and Vrbo with lots of comfortable amenities and fun perks. Here are our favorite tent rentals in the U.S. for a nature-themed getaway.
This Airbnb rental is a 12-foot by 14-foot canvas tent that is out in the nature of Oklahoma for when you really need a refreshing getaway. It’s a glamping-style tent with a queen-size bed inside, as well as air conditioning and electric heater. There’s a public bathroom and shower just 30 yards away from the tent for your convenience. You will need to bring your own dishes and utensils. However, towels and linens are provided for you by the host. This is a fun tent camping experience for a couple or solo travelers looking for peace and quiet.
The Kanab area of Utah has lots of amazing places to camp, including this glamping tent that can sleep up to three people. This exciting tent has electricity provided by a solar array, Wi-Fi throughout the property, a private living room, a king-size bed, and a private front porch. The shared facilities are indoor washrooms, an indoor kitchen, BYO bar, TVs, a fire pit, and propane grills. You’ll be about eight miles from Kanab and have a peaceful spot with awesome views of the desert landscape. Pets are welcome here with a $20 fee per pet.
Here’s a tent rental in the heart of Texas Hill Country for your next glamping trip. It’s tucked away in a romantic spot to give you the ultimate tranquility and comfort. This is a tent for two people and that comes with lots of perks, including a heater and air conditioning, electric indoor fireplace, Wi-Fi, Nespresso and tea, dishes and utensils, and a sound system. There’s even a fridge/freezer, microwave, soaking tub, and enclosed water closet. It’s an ideal spot for adults over 25 since kids are not allowed. You’ll also have an outdoor hot tub here to really treat yourself to some glamping luxury.
Up to four people can stay in this luxury tent in Washington that is tucked under maple trees and has a covered patio. You’ll be about 25 steps away from a private indoor bathroom here and can also have access to the indoor pool and hot tub. The tent is 16 feet by 20 feet in size and has a fridge, microwave, coffee maker, and sink with running water. You’ll sleep on a queen-size bed, enjoy two acres of the property with big shade trees, and be just 10 minutes from downtown Walla Walla.
We also love this Vermont tent that’s available through Airbnb for two guests. It’s located on 45 beautiful acres and offers a glamping experience in the woods. The tent comes with an outdoor kitchen with culinary essentials, a porta-potty, and a fire pit with firewood. From here, it’s easy to get to hiking trails at Mt. Cube and Smarts Mountain. This is a place to come to disconnect from technology, but if you need a bit of Wi-Fi, you can access it at the owner’s main house nearby. Bring a portable charger too since there’s no electricity at the tent site. Pets are allowed here, but it’s not suitable for kids under age 12.
Book your Airbnb venture at the OK RV Park to enjoy this glamping tent about five miles from downtown Moab. It does not allow pets but it does have communal bathrooms with showers just a short walk from the tent site. It’s a great spot for two people, and the owner provides towels, linens, blankets, and toiletries. Other perks are free Wi-Fi, power strips for charging, and coin-operated laundry in a nearby laundry room.
This canvas cottage tent sleeps five people and is a popular Vrbo rental. It also comes with two kayaks and paddleboards, which is great because the tent is just a few feet from the lake. The tent has a queen-size bed and bunk bed inside. You’ll have running water and a fridge inside the tent. Guests also have their own outdoor flushing toilet and outdoor shower to use. Just make sure to bring your own towels and bedding when you stay here.
Two travelers can also book this Airbnb tent on an organic farm in Iowa. It has sheep and cattle on the pasture too, and the hosts make wood-fired pizza on weekends. Stay here for a working farm experience and have a 12-foot by 14-foot space all to yourself. Inside, you’ll find a king-size bed, dresser, lamps, and nightstands. The tent comes with lanterns, bedding, and pillows. Cell phone service is spotty but available by the bathrooms. There’s a shared bathhouse about a 3-4-minute walk away.
