Incredible Dog-Friendly Glamping in New England

Glamping season is coming around again in New England, and your dog wants to go with you!

A New England glamping experience is a unique way to explore the outdoors, whether you’re off on a weekend getaway or a mega road trip, and the best way to elevate your experience is to bring your dog along for the adventure.

Glamping accommodations are one-of-a-kind experiences with a strong emphasis on immersion in the natural landscape.

In our search for pet-friendly glamping spots in New England, we found so many cool places, from a cozy woodland yurt in New Hampshire to a beautiful glamping resort on the coast of Maine.

We can’t wait to share them with our favorite dogs, and of course with you!

Where to Find Dog-Friendly Glamping in New England

In addition to booking glamping stays at our favorite New England glamping resorts, we use a variety of online platforms to find glamping properties, so if you don’t find something you like below, hop online and check out some of these resources to find your own.

Here’s an overview of the booking platforms I use to find dog-friendly glamping near me.

  • Hipcamp: Hipcamp matches private landowners with people who love the outdoors. Search Hipcamp for regular (private) campsites and some really cool glamping spots. It’s easy to filter out dog-friendly glamping on the platform. If you’ve never booked on Hipcamp before, use our referral link to save $10 off your first stay.
  • VRBO: VRBO stands for Vacation Rentals by Owner. You won’t find many glamping tents on VRBO, but you will find lots of cute cabins nestled in the woods or along a New England shore.
  • Airbnb: Although we don’t use Airbnb as much as we used to, we still find great glamping gems every now and then. Use the icons at the top of the dashboard to look for unique properties like yurts, tiny homes, and RVs.
  • Glamping Hub: According to the Glamping Hub website, they have 24,000 outdoor accommodations ready to book. We have used them several times and found some cool spots. A lot of their rentals are dog-friendly, which we love!

The Best Dog-Friendly Glamping in New England

Take your pup and escape to the woods of Bar Harbor, Maine.

Terramor Resort provides a variety of canvas tents with different amenities and price points, but they all provide a private oasis where you can convene with nature while your dog snoozes by the campfire.

Unlike some of the secluded glamping properties on this list, Terramor provides a rustic, resort-like experience for glampers.

Head to the lodge for dinner and drinks, relax near the communal campfire, or take a dip in the pool or hot tub before turning in for the night.
