For travelers itching to explore the great outdoors but not quite ready to give up luxuries such as private bathrooms, hot showers and a comfy bed, “glamping” is the hottest new solution. Combining all the comforts of home with an immersive experience in nature has been a hit around the world, and more and more glamping destinations have popped up throughout the United States. From luxurious tipis featuring hand-crafted furniture to safari like canvas tents with personal chefs and butlers, there are endless opportunities to get your glamp on. Here are 10 of the best glamping spots in the US you should consider for a blissful vacation, no “roughing it” required.
1. The Resort at Paws Up, Montana
One of the most glamorous glamping operations in the country is at the luxury resort at Paws Up in Montana. Safari tents boast fine linens, rustic furniture, a private en-suite bathroom, a skilled camp chef and a butler for your every whim. Your camping butler will do everything from build the fire to prepare delicious s’mores or help you arrange your daily activities. Offering romantic honeymoon packages and two-roomed family-friendly tent options, there isn’t an occasion you can’t celebrate in style here. From horseback riding to fly fishing to chuck wagon rides, this cushy ranch is full of fun. You better have deep pockets to stay here though; nightly rates for the glamping tents start at $1200.
