Top 17 New York Glamping Spots
There are so many wonderful, unique, luxurious, and quirky glamping spots in the stunning state of New York. Check out the top 17 places to have the perfect getaway.
1) The Glass House: A Hudson Valley Tiny Home Escape
“The World’s Most Beautiful Tiny House”
Location: Hudson Valley, Marlboro
Price: $259+ USD per night
Referred to as an ‘off-grid oasis’ by the Today Show, this spectacular tiny glasshouse is exactly that. Imagine lying in a cozy double bed, with 360-degree views of vineyards, orchards in the morning and a starry sky just before you fall asleep.
Packed into 180 square feet is everything you need. Choose to whip up a meal in the loaded kitchen or slap a steak on the grill on the fire pit outside. Don’t be surprised to see deer, coyotes, and a flourish of amazing birds while you make the morning coffee.
This cabin is fully off-grid, with solar paneling, a dry-flush toilet, and a propane heating/cooling system. But there’s still an excellent wifi connection to send off stunning holiday images to family members. It’s a fantastic place for glamping near NYC.
Guest Review: “My partner and I spent three relaxing and joy-filled days at Seth’s beautiful glasshouse. The space is as advertised but feels so much more chic and cozy in person. The kitchen is fully stocked making cooking meals easy and fun! The bed is comfortable and the space is very romantic.”
2) An Adirondack Tree House Retreat
Location: Middle Grove
Price: $225+ USD per night
Hidden amongst the forest is this fairytale treehouse, the perfect spot to reconnect with nature in true glamping style. Tucked away in private woods at the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains, it is a rustic retreat ideal for a romantic getaway.
The outdoor kitchen equipped with everything you need, including a charcoal grill and fire pit, offers an authentic camping experience.
Outside the ‘bedroom’ is a covered porch, a tranquil spot to read a book with a cup of coffee in the morning or to enjoy some sunset drinks.
While treehouses aren’t known for their plumbing, a full bathroom is just a winding staircase and a couple of steps away.
This unique place is a fun option for glamping in Adirondacks.
Guest Review: “Thomas’ attention to detail in every nook and cranny of the treehouse and the surrounding property was like no other. The outdoor kitchen had everything we needed to have a charcoal grill cooked meal morning, noon, or night. The firepit was in a perfect location, just over the footbridge by the pond. We enjoyed listening to the babbling brook while we gazed into the fire. You will wake up to the sound of birds chirping and fall asleep to the sound of bullfrogs croaking. I HIGHLY recommend Thomas’ treehouse house to anyone who is looking for a nature retreat!”
3) Geo Dome on Farm Upstate Catskills
Location: Outliers Inn, Woodridge
Price: $350+ USD per night
Sitting on a 12-acre property in the mountains is an amazing Catskills glamping experience. The geodome, with its wooden floors and minimalist design, is New York apartment chic meets wild retreat.
The dome’s design is spectacular, with a comfortable double bed facing uninterrupted views of the beautiful woods. It has a lovely snow globe effect, keeping guests close to nature but not so close that you’ll have unwanted creepy crawlies bothering you.
You can finish off your day of ultimate relaxation with a soak in the clawfoot tub in the outdoor bathroom. Roast marshmallows over the large fire pit or whip up some dinner in the outdoor kitchen.
Guest Review: “Staying at the dome was amazing. The whole property has a magical vibe. The animals, fresh veggies, and meat. It’s the perfect place to unplug and get away. The fire pits are awesome. Lots of hammocks to lounge in. It’s close to lots of hiking trails and swimming spots. We are already planning on going back.”
4) Glamping With a Gorgeous View
Price: $110+ USD per night
Camping doesn’t need to entail waking up on a deflated blow-up mattress in a windswept tent. This canvas tent on a raised platform with an epic view of the pristine surrounds offers luxury camping in NY.
The tent is bright and cozy without being overstated and as the sole guest space on the working farm, it’s peaceful and secluded. The comfy double bed and sleeper couch is ideal for a couple or up to four guests. Families will love gathering around the fire pit in the evenings or relaxing on the porch.
The outdoor kitchen and bathroom form a sweet little farm stay compound with everything you need for a glamping getaway. There is no wifi or electricity in the tent, but there are plug points in the bathhouse to charge devices. This really enhances the opportunity to disconnect and be present in nature.
Guest Review: “This is a special place. Great location, beautiful view, and lovely touches inside and outside the tent. The views are amazing and we were at peace watching the dawn and sunset from the deck.”
5) Hudson Highlands Base Camp
Location: Cold Spring
Price: $180+ USD per night
Who doesn’t want to relive a childhood dream and stay in a vintage Airstream in the middle of ‘nowhere’? Hikers will especially love the amazing location of this unique accommodation in the Hudson Highlands.
The authentic campervan, with almost entirely original fittings, is a journey back in time. The only new feature is the extremely comfortable double bed, which you’ll find difficult to drag yourself out of after a day of adventures. With all the creature comforts in a quirky old-fashioned style, this is a seriously fun glamping experience.
It’s an amazing option for families, and the kids will love the novelty of the charming motorhome. Laze in a hammock strung between trees or in cozy deck chairs around a fire.
Guest Review: “Like stepping back in time, the airstream captivated the comforting essence of nostalgia. Everything from the vintage tableware to the tiki string lights were curated towards a personal coziness that hotels can never quite replicate. We chose a rainy weekend, but the sound of water drops against the aluminum exterior added an unforgettable layer to our delightful experience.”
6) Cozy, Private Yurt on 27 acre Horse Farm w Hot Tub
Price: $159 USD per night
Becoming more and more popular at glampsites are circular, fully-loaded yurts. This one, located on a horse farm in the Hudson Valley, is 700 square feet of comfort. If you’re seeking that nostalgic camping feeling but wish you could bring your house with you – this is the perfect place.
The interior of the circular tent has every feature of a modern home. A bedroom with a huge bed, a living room, bathroom, and kitchen.
The gas fireplace keeps it toasty and inviting in the winter months. And for those blissful summer evenings, there’s nothing like grilling a steak on the barbecue on the deck and then moving to the nearby fire pit to make S’mores.
Families will have fun making homemade pizzas in the wood-fired oven and couples will love the outdoor hot tub.
Guest Review: “There’s an unexplainable yet magical energy that takes over as soon as you enter his property. The photos provided did not do this place justice! Perfectly nestled in a private area by the horses with everything you can possibly need to simply relax and get in touch with nature.”
7) Waterfall Campsite – 40 Acres w/ Waterfalls
Price: $250+ USD per night
This incredible tent on stilts is nestled among towering trees with unparalleled surroundings and a palpable sense of serenity. Sitting on the deck in the morning and gazing out into the woods is a fantastic way to start the day.
After a night in the luxurious queen-size memory foam bed, you’ll be ready and roaring for an adventure to the three waterfalls on the property. After a day of exploration, the covered outdoor kitchen and fire pit are the perfect places to rustle up a hearty meal.
The tents are hidden away, offering a lot of privacy and guests must be 21 years and older. This ensures a quiet and tranquil stay. While kids aren’t allowed, dogs are welcome so don’t hesitate to bring your puppy pal along.
Guest Review: “We had the most wonderful time – hiking through the beautiful trails, swimming by the two gorgeous waterfalls, enjoying the peace and nature on the deck and by the fire pit, and cooking on the charcoal grill and in the outdoor kitchen which is well stocked with all the tools you’d need. The tent was beautiful, clean, comfortable, and filled with thoughtful touches like games, great books, and extra blankets for chilly nights. We can’t wait to go back next season and we hope to make it our yearly tradition!”
Price: $90+ USD per night
Perched atop the Shawangunk Mountain Ridge is this no-frills campsite. You won’t find Egyptian cotton sheets here, but you will wake up to birds singing and 1600 acres of magical landscape to explore.
Outdoor enthusiasts and adventure seekers who are on the hunt for epic hiking trails and rock climbing will revel in this spot. The bell tent is equipped with everything you need, favoring necessity over opulence.
String lights twinkling in the trees show the way to the tent which has a propane heater to keep it cozy in winter. There is even wifi and a portable power bank so that you can stay connected.
Guest Review: “This place is definitely set up by an expert. It has everything you need to feel glamorous while roughing it! Even the fire is set up so you can just light it up and feel like a girl or boy scout. Amazing tent experience.”
9) Willow Treehouse – secluded, unique, romantic
Price: $350+ USD per night
This is not your average treehouse built by dad in the backyard. It is a piece of architectural art, offering a completely immersive experience from every spot.
Completely secluded in a clearing in the woods and overlooking a large pond, the treehouse is something out of a dream. When you’re not cooling down in the pond, or reading a book in the loft bed with views from every angle, you can hang out in the hot tub next to the pond. There is no TV, but rather a couch facing a large window with unbelievable views. You risk turning into a couch potato here.
The stylish interior and fully-loaded kitchen perfectly complement the angular design of the cabin. With large windows allowing light and offering beautiful views, you won’t want to leave.
This is an unbeatable spot for a romantic getaway or a solo retreat.
Guest Review: “This was the most unique, incredible experience my girlfriend and I have had. It was such a beautiful place, the surroundings were amazing, and the treehouse was by far the coolest thing we’ve ever seen.”
10) Yurt Rental on 80 private acres
Price: $100+ USD per night
Another yurt makes the list because, well, yurts are awesome. They’re functional, warm and provide the best opportunity to brave the wild, without the ‘brave’ part. It’s essentially a little home squeezed into a 16-foot circle which is pretty awesome.
Sitting on 80 acres of blissful forest and fields, this is the perfect base from which to have a fun-filled glamping holiday jam-packed with outdoor activities.
The yurt has more than enough space for a couple of people to bunk down in the queen bed, futon and single bed. Once guests have whipped up some dinner in the kitchen, they can enjoy it on the picnic table on the deck.
Guest Review: “An amazing and rejuvenating place! The views are incredible and the property itself is beautiful to walk around on. The yurt is comfortable to stay in and felt spacious for two. We cooked all our meals in the kitchen and on the bbq. The “backyard” area with the grill and picnic table is a very comfortable and scenic spot to sit. Lots of great nearby hikes.”
11) Glamping – Fire Island – Watch Hill
Price: $129+ USD per night
Beach camping is romantic, fun, and the perfect vacation. But sandy tents and no respite from the sun definitely isn’t. This glamp-spot is the best of both worlds – the adventure that camping on the beach offers, and the comfort that you’d expect from a B&B.
The tents are on raised platforms, brilliant for avoiding sandy beds, and sit just behind the majestic dunes. So you’re only a short walk from the beach. Groups of up to six people can share a tent with two queen-sized beds and additional camping cots if needed.
After a day enjoying the coast, you can sip a cold drink from the cooler on your covered porch. While there’s no kitchen, the charcoal grill is ideal for a fireside meal.
Guest Review: “The surroundings here are incredible. You can hear the ocean just over the dune throughout the night. The bed was very comfortable and towels, toiletries, citronella candle, cooler, etc. were all provided. I love “real” camping, but this was a wonderful cross between a hotel and camping.”
12) Entire Glamping Site: 2 Tents/Dining Gazebo/more
Price: $396+ USD per night
Looking for a hassle-free family glamping-trip or a weekend away with friends? Look no further. This fully-equipped site on top of Ohayo Mountain is a natural wonderland of meandering streams, mystical forests, and scenic meadows.
Expect carpeted floors, cloud-like queen size beds, and beautiful personal touches throughout the two luxury tents. Take a moment to relax on your private porch or meet up with the rest of your party in the outdoor kitchen or fully-equipped dining gazebo.
Once you’ve shared a BBQ dinner, your group can settle around a bonfire and marvel at the stunning starry sky.
Guest Review: “Just beautiful! The location, the tents, the deliciously comfortable beds, and the fluffy Robes! The natural beauty of camping without the sore back and lugging of equipment. We had a lovely time. The birdlife is amazing so take your binoculars. The fire pit is great to sit around and gaze at the stars and eat s’mores of course. No need to bring anything really other than yourself and something to eat!”
13) Stargazer Upstate NY glamping at Gatherwild Ranch
Price: $175+ USD per night
This stunning ranch in the rolling hills of the Hudson Valley is a glamping haven. There are a number of unique accommodation options ranging from tipi tents to repurposed vans.
A beautiful bell tent is a popular option for its simple luxury and undeniable comfort. On the colder evenings, you can snuggle up on the queen-sized bed draped in sheepskins. Its east-facing position means you can enjoy mesmerizing sunrises from bed or the private porch.
The minimal design and soft-glowing solar lights are incredibly inviting and add to the majestic atmosphere. The back-to-basics composting toilets and solar shower are eco-friendly and function well. You can meet like-minded vacationers in the outdoor kitchen or grab some privacy around your fire pit.
14) Scottland Yard Farm- Wisteria- Glamping Tent
Price: $143 USD per night
Only 15 minutes by car from Ithaca and gorgeous gorges and wineries you’ll find the picture-perfect wisteria tent. This is the smallest glamp option on the farm and is a fantastic hideout for two people.
It is a very homely tent with a sumptuous double bed and a small kitchenette with a fridge and coffee/tea appliances. If cuddling up with your loved one doesn’t keep you warm on the chilly nights, the electric blanket certainly will.
Sitting on the private deck below dripping greenery is lovely. But if you’re seeking a dip in the pool or some socializing, there are a number of public spaces, including an outdoor kitchen and bistro.
Guest Review: “10/10 would recommend! So beautiful and the tent is incredibly comfortable with so many nice touches. The property has so much to see and there is everything you need and more. One of the most special places we have ever stayed – don’t think twice about booking!”
15) Blue Hills Farm Glamping Tent w/private Bathroom
Price: $199+ USD per night
Tucked into the heart of the Upper Delaware River Valley is Blue Hills Farm. And nestled in the picturesque farm is a single standing tent promising a tranquil and relaxing stay. Although, calling it a tent seems hyperbolic as it’s more reminiscent of a grand hotel suite.
The wooden floors throughout, the charming seating area and the hallway connecting the bathroom and a bedroom might just be the most non-camping camping experience you can have.
You’ll love the sound of birds singing as you wake up and the merry bullfrog residents of the pond.
Guest Review: “The pictures do not do this place justice! A very relaxing stay in a beautifully adorned “tent”. Rustic, but in a charming, not uncomfortable way.”
16) Seneca Sol Safari Tent – Maple (Queen Bed)
Price: $175+ USD per night
Seneca Sol is a brand new glampground with a couple of awesome accommodation options. You can choose between a tipi or a safari tent, hidden in a beautiful forest.
This ambient safari tent, with soft lighting and a seductive queen bed, is the ultimate place to rest your head. And you’ll want to get a good night’s sleep because this NY glamping experience includes a bunch of awesome activities such as wine tours and hiking.
There’s an outdoor kitchen, but the complimentary breakfast on your private balcony will give you the kickstart for your day. Expect to be looked after, and not worry about anything but relaxing.
Guest Review: “This is a beautiful location and extremely relaxing! It’s a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend it. The beds are so comfortable and the rooms and bathroom/showers are all clean and neat. Everything was fantastic… 5 stars!”
17) Collective Retreats
Location: Governors Island, New York City
Price: $175+ USD per night
I bet you never thought that you would go glamping in NYC. But just an 8-minute ferry ride from Manhattan is the amazing Collective Retreat.
The accommodation options at the retreat are described as ‘Instagram-worthy’, but truly they’re even more spectacular than that. You can choose between rustic glamorous tents or full-on luxury tents. Whichever you choose, you’ll be astounded by the level of detail and care in each tent.
Find a little slice of solitude in all the buzz of the city. Enjoy complimentary yoga and meditation sessions, outdoor movie nights, or a sunset cocktail at the bar.
Guest Review: “One of the most amazing trips ever. Went with friends and didn’t know what to expect. I had never been to Governor’s Island. The experience was incredible. The Island closest to the public at night, so the campers are the only ones on the Island! I felt so special and was overwhelmed by the views of Manhattan, the Statue of Liberty, and Ellis Island.”
