If the word glamping has you rethinking your relationship with the outdoors, you’re not alone. Glamping has grown exponentially in popularity in the past few years, encouraging more and more families to immerse themselves in the outdoors without sleeping on the ground.
Last year, I embarked on my first Vermont glamping adventure and wrote my first post about that delightful experience – a cabin camping adventure in northern Vermont. Since then, I have made glamping all over the country my personal mission. Glamping offers a whole lot of convenience that I’ve learned to embrace. After just a year in the game, I’ve explored cabins, yurts, bell tents, and treehouses all over the northeastern United States, but I’m always adding more to the list, especially in my home state of Vermont. This week I spent some time exploring Glamping Hub looking for that perfect dog-friendly vacation rental in Vermont. I totally found it, and I added a few more Vermont properties to my glamping bucket list.

Pet-Friendly Vermont Vacation Rentals
Four-Season Cottage in Landgrove, Vermont
Between the beautiful three-bedroom cottage and the secluded, wooded property where your dog can run off-leash, this may just be the ideal wilderness getaway. This Vermont retreat is situated on the very edge of the Green Mountain National Forest — you can walk out the door and onto forested trails that will keep you out all day. Two of our favorite Vermont State Parks, Lowell Lake and Emerald Lake, are within 15 minutes — both are awesome for paddling and swimming. Family-friendly amenities at this sweet Vermont cottage include Wi-Fi, a washer/dryer, and a bocce ball court.

Mountain-View Cabins in Royalton, Vermont
Gorgeous mountain views are the highlight of these two beautifully rustic cabins in Royalton, Vermont. Wide open spaces, private hiking trails, and a pond for splash-happy dogs are just a few of the perks of this property. Two cabins can be rented separately or together — sleeping two and three people, respectively. Sparkly night skies, a cozy gas fireplace, and a full kitchen mean you can hunker right down in your slice of Vermont heaven. If you feel the need to explore, be sure head into downtown Royalton, where you’ll find The Worthy Burger (a must visit), a great natural food co-op, and exceptional swimming in the White River.
