Have you ever been glamping before? It’s a pretty huge thing right now, and even though it took me a while to understand the appeal, I’ve totally been bitten by the glamping bug, especially for winter adventures. Why? Glamping allows us to enjoy the beauty of the outdoors without having to rough it. It’s more ecologically friendly than staying in a hotel, and it’s a great way to explore unique and quirky accommodations. I’ve spent several hours on Glamping Hub, searching for that perfect winter glamping destination in New England, and I’ve narrowed it down to these eight exquisite properties – the most beautiful destinations for winter glamping in New England.
Winter Glamping New England Style
A stay at this little Vermont cabin is a great way to forget all of your troubles and embrace the wonders of winter. Not only does it overlook a magnificent waterfall, but it also comes equipped with all the comforts of home. You’ll find a full kitchen, satellite TV, and a stereo system to set the mood for your adventure. Get up-close-and-personal with the river and the surrounding forest while hanging out on the awesome wrap-around deck. Fulfill your skiing and snowboarding dreams at the world-famous Jay Peak Ski Resort, which is just six miles away. This delightful cabin would make the perfect New England winter vacation for anyone hoping to escape to the woods for a couple of days.
Who says that beachside vacations are only for the dog days of summer? This luxurious cottage in Truro, Massachusetts can be yours for a view days of winter bliss. Fancy long walks on a wintery beach, followed by a soak in a deep clawfoot bathtub? How about a heavenly sleep in a king size bed next to a crackling fire? Cape Cod is an ideal destination in the winter, especially if you’re seeking solitude. The little village of Truro will spoil you with decadent seafood restaurants, thriving art galleries, and unique shopping opportunities.This New England glamping cottage sleeps four comfortably and dogs are welcome too.
Bring your family or a few close friends and hole up in this unique glamping destination in Vermont. Three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a kitchen with a wood-burning stove mean you’ll never want to leave this snow retreat. There’s plenty of room to spread out here, and lots of hidden nooks and corners to relax in. If you still feel the need to get out for some adventure, I highly recommend the Craftsbury Nordic Center for cross-country skiing. Stowe, St. Johnsbury, and Newport are all a short drive from your pad, but once you settle in, I seriously doubt you’ll ever want to leave. It’s Vermont glamping at its finest!
A sweet outdoor hot tub and a cozy brick fireplace are all you need for a winter retreat at this beautiful New Hampshire glamping cottage on three private acres. This lovely property is located in the heart of the White Mountains, which means you can be on the slopes within minutes if you so desire. A full kitchen and an outdoor barbecue makes things easy, and there’s plenty of room for a family of four, plus one or two adventure-loving dogs.
This small cabin is quite a stunner, complete with two queen-size beds, a cozy loft, and a kitchenette. Embrace the magic of seaside living in the charming village of Rockport, where you’ll discover sandy beaches, a beautiful marina, and fresh, salty air. Want more reasons to head to the shores of Massachusetts this winter? How about lobster dinners, gorgeous sunrises, and the hiking trails at Halibut State Park. You can’t go wrong with this little gem, and dogs are permitted as long as you call ahead.
The little town of Manchester in the Green Mountains of Vermont is just about as quintessential New England as you can get, providing visitors with a myriad of restaurant opportunities, one of the country’s best independent bookstores, and lots of high-end shopping. Manchester is also big on wild spaces, and this modern, two-story home is situated on 30 beautiful acres with fantastic views of the surrounding mountains. Housekeeping service, free Wi-Fi, and a full country breakfast are included in your stay, and dogs are welcome too! It’s the perfect combination of extravagance and wilderness, for a getaway you won’t soon forget.
One of the coolest aspects of glamping is the fun and quirky accommodations available. This incredible tree house is the ideal winter glamping property. A fully stocked kitchen and wood-burning fireplace will make you feel right at home, and the huge picture windows look out onto a beautifully forested landscape. Otis Ridge Ski Mountain is right down the road, and the bustling village of Great Barrington is just 20 minutes away.
In past winters, we’ve explored more rustic New England camping opportunities, and we loved every minute of it. These properties, on the other hand, are a bit more deluxe, providing a whole lot of comfort in a wild and wintery setting. In fact, winter glamping in New England seems like the perfect way to pass a snowy weekend.
If the properties above haven’t totally inspired you, I highly recommend you make a cup of tea and pop over to Glamping Hub’s New England Portal for a look around.
