Rugged yet refined, nautical yet mountainous—Maine has quite the range in what it offers. Year-round destinations with anything from boating in the summer to snowshoeing in the winter make it a great state to visit at any time. The abundance of National Parkland, wooded acres, and unspoiled nature are alluring no doubt, and even less enthusiastic trailblazers could enjoy a night under the stars. So we have glamping, and Maine has a diversity of offerings, from rustic treehouses to luxurious tents. These are the best places to glamp in Maine.

What more could one want when visiting Maine, than a scenic stay on coastal waters, and lots of “lobstah”? Well, it’s a darn good start. Guests will sleep in a safari canvas tent that has all the essentials, including a nearby bathroom. Go out on a lobster boat with the hosts, and enjoy the catch of the day for dinner.

Cozy Cabin - Naples

Guests won’t find TV or Wi-Fi at this cabin/camp. Many Maine cabins identify as camps, because of their simplicity and connection to nature. No neighbors are around, so this is a little bit of a secluded site. Row out onto the water in a paddleboat, or come in the winter to experience ice fishing. Inside is warm, with a cozy loft accessible via a ladder. Don’t expect to have great cellphone service, which is kind of optimal if looking to really disconnect.

While the cabin may be simplistic, it’s warm and offers an adorable sleeping loft. The kitchen will do the job of prepping meals. But the big reason people come out here is to vacation on a private island! Lake life in Maine is a big deal, kids can truly experience that idyllic image of summer, that we all have nestled in our heads.

On the outside, it looks like an average camper. On the inside, this Airbnb is a luxury suite with a super cute kitchen. The aesthetic goes well, given the retreat is on a working farm. Walk to the nearby pond, gaze at the clear night sky, all while being relatively close to some of the best sites in Maine.

Meander down to the dock with a morning cup of coffee to watch the most spectacular sunrise. Or prepare a wine and cheese picnic for the sunset. The log cabin is undoubtedly more equipped than a tent but still has that deep outdoor influence.

This tent is also on the property that the island A-frame resides. Book both for the entire family, or just opt for the tent if in search of minimalism. It’s cozy yet more solid than an average tent, and you’ll have all the same water activities to dive into.

Riverside Lavender Farm - Standish

This fairytale canvas tent is located on a fragrant lavender farm. How enchanting is that? The site itself is ambiently lit via tiki torch (bring your own fuel), and it’s simply beautiful at sunset. Turkeys and ducks roam the property, secondarily serving as insect control, which is both awesome and adorable. Dogs are welcome at this site but must remain on a leash if they could disrupt the birds from their duties.

Secluded Lakeside Cabin - Beddington

Even if not talking about Glamping, this might be one of our favorite cabins in Maine. A traditional log structure keeps guests protected and cozy, and overall it’s quite secluded. To reach the cabin, you’ll follow the host down dirt roads, then on a short hike. So yes, be prepared to carry your gear! Towels and other necessities will need to be brought with—same as if camping. A canoe is provided, so take plenty of relaxing floats on the lake.
