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. Glamping is also 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 New England glamping destination, and I’ve narrowed it down to these nine exquisite properties – the most beautiful destinations for winter glamping in New England.

This luxurious cottage in Truro, Massachusetts can be yours for a few 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.
