It’s official – my husband and I spend as much time glamping as we do pitching our tent. That’s probably because where we live, the night-time temps are below freezing for six months out of the year – thanks Vermont!
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, we 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 in New England, it’s where we’ve had most of our glamping adventures. The following posts feature some of our favorite places to go glamping in New England – perfect for your next outdoor adventure!
How to Find Great Glamping in New England
We use for main sites when hunting for unique glamping properties in New England. While each of these websites is a platform for private land or homeowners to host guests, there are subtle differences between them. Here’s an overview of the sites we use to find amazing glamping in New England.
- Glamping Hub – We find the most unique glamping opportunities on Glamping Hub, which features yurts, treehouses, cabins, and glamping tents. Glamping sites do tend to be more luxurious and expensive, but the booking process is easy and there are lots of Massachusetts glamping properties to choose from.
- Hipcamp – Hipcamp specializes in all types of private campsites, not just glamping. As of right now, most of the Hipcamp properties in Massachusetts are in the Berkshires. Generally speaking, these Hipcamp properties are rustic and affordable.
- Tentrr – Tentrr is relatively new on the scene, but we are loving the concept. Signature Tentrr sites are ready-to-go glamping tents made of canvas, complete with a bed, woodstove, and toilet. They are very private spots in unique locations. Prices are pretty standard, between $95 and $150 per night. Right now, Tentrr sites in Massachusetts are located almost exclusively in the Berkshires.
- Airbnb – If you navigate to the Airbnb website, you will find a section titled “Unique Stays” under “More Filters”. From there, you can filter your search to include barns, castles, yurts, and campers, among others. Massachusetts glamping sites are limited, but there are a few that are worth checking out. Definitely read the fine print on Airbnb because every property handles fees and cancelations differently.

Glamping in Maine
We lived in Maine briefly when we were just starting our little family. There’s something about that rocky coast and those deep, wild forests that we can’t get enough of. We’re hoping to expand our glamping experiences in Maine this year.
Incredible Glamping in Maine on the Saco River – This was our first experience glamping with Tentrr, a company that provides landowners with a full glamping set-up for guests. We loved this little spot on a Maine lavender farm.
