There’s nothing like glamping in New England!

Glamping isn’t just a trendy buzzword – it’s an exciting way to enjoy the outdoors and experience unique, rustic lodging at the same time. Glamping in New England is especially memorable – maybe because the night-time temps dip below freezing for six months out of the year.

We were bit by the glamping bug a few years ago, and we love that we can still have immersive outdoor experiences without packing ALL THAT GEAR or sleeping on the ground.

We’ve done a lot of glamping in New England and have stayed at properties that feature glamping tents, cabins, yurts, treehouses, and more.

With glamping, you can have lots of outdoor adventures and then settle in for the night in a real bed.

Most New England glamping properties are similar in price to a hotel room, but they are more unique with a strong emphasis on the outdoors. It’s no wonder we love glamping so much!

Because we live here in New England, it’s where we’ve had most of our glamping adventures.

We have lots of posts about glamping in different New England states and about specific glamping properties in New England, so we’ll link to those when relevant.
