The Best Fall Weekend Glamping Trip

By Jackie Dreyer

This post was written by a guest author.

If you’re planning an upcoming glamping trip—or if you’d like to try glamping for the first time—it might be difficult to find the perfect location. To make your decision easier, we’ve chosen the following five best places to reserve a glamping getaway this fall.

There's nothing quite so dreamy as this level of seclusion at this Oregon cottage.

1. Peaceful Cedar Green House – Silverton, Oregon

It’s hard to believe someone living in the Pacific Northwest would need an escape to nature when so much of the region is made up of incredible natural landscape. Still, nature calls, and glamping is the perfect way to experience the areas outside of the hipster haven of Portland.

This cottage in Silverton, Oregon, puts you directly in touch with the nature around you. The greenhouse-style dwelling has floor-to-ceiling windows broken up only by cedar support beams, so you can see the lush trees surrounding the place. If that’s not enough to sell you, consider the fact that there’s a hot tub inside of the house, and we’re pretty sure you’ll be booking your weekend here ASAP.

2. Eco-Cabin in Texas Hill Country – Spicewood, Texas

Just outside the hustle-and-bustle of Austin, you’ll find this peaceful cabin, nestled in a community that centers upon serenity. Once you book your stay, you can also sign up for yoga classes and massage package to make your experience all the more relaxing.

Even if you don’t sign up for extras, you can take advantage of the communal Floating Cabin, which is a great perch for reading and spotting wildlife. You can also swim and kayak from the Floating Cabin’s edge, too!

3. Charming Log Cabin Rentals at Resort – Spearfish, South Dakota

This property was named one of the top 10 must-see log cabin vacation sites—and for good reason. It’s smack-dab in the middle of all of South Dakota’s most incredible parks, landscapes, and historical sites. Just down the road, you can find Deadwood, a key town in the midst of the national gold rush. A 90-minute drive will take you to the Black Hills, an awe-inspiring National Forest just next door to Mount Rushmore.

Spearfish itself is a place of incredible natural beauty, too, so you can certainly stick to your glamping destination if you’re just there for a weekend. The property has many on-site amenities, including a pool, fire pits, and a dog park, making it a great option if you’re bringing four-legged glampers along.

4. Magically Romantic Tree House in Eucalyptus Grove – Petaluma, California

Glamping in this California tree house brings you up close and personal with nature—tree limbs jut through the house and into the living space—but that’s all part of the place’s rustic, romantic charm. It sits in Sonoma County, and its height gives you a bird’s eye view of the Golden State’s incredible rolling hills.

Of course, being that you’re in Sonoma County, it would be a shame to miss the area’s best wineries, and you can also drive to many of the Bay Area’s natural highlights, including Point Reyes National Seashore. Or consider yourself "outdoorsy" by grabbing a glass of wine, cracking open a book, and reading while sitting in an actual treetop—the choice is yours.

This waterfront rental is the perfect Upstate New York destination from which to enjoy the fall foliage.

5. Historic Former Mill Turned Waterfront Luxury Rental – Woodstock, New York

If you’re glamping with friends, a trip to Woodstock, New York, could be in the cards. This historic mill—built along both Cooper Lake and Sawkill Streams in the 1800s—sleeps four and has all of the comforts of home, including a gas fireplace.

And, while the Woodstock Festival no longer takes place in this town, it’s still a popular destination for artists of all mediums. You can take a break from outdoor pursuits by exploring the thriving local cultural scene to see it for yourself. Otherwise, the mountains, waterfalls, and hikes to both will give you the taste of beautiful nature you seek.

Where will your first glamping trip take you? If this list has proven anything, it’s that you can glamp just about anywhere in the U.S., from the luxurious rolling hills of Sonoma Wine Country to the wild forests of South Dakota. All you have left to do now is decide which is the right destination for your next trip, pack a bag, and get glamping.

Our Top Five Staff Picks

By Chloe Stein

Staff Picks: Every two weeks, we'll be bringing you one of our staffer's favorite glamping sites. This week, Chloe is here to share which accommodations she's chosen!

When working at Glamping Hub, not a day goes by without oogling and ogling over a newly-listed tree house, a funky yurt or a charming shepherd hut—and don't even get me started on tiny houses, they're utterly praise-worthy.

So, let's begin our first week of staff picks with two things in mind. One, prepare to be amazed, and two, you can bet your bottom dollar there will be a tiny house.

1 - Tree House: Misiones, Argentina

This new sign up is the bee's knees, his legs, and his arms. Why do we love this Argentinian tree house? I mean, isn't it obvious?

2 - Tented Cabins: Rhone Alps, France

These tents are our second choice as they are available year-round—withstanding winter, spring, summer and fall. Also because we can always get down with a glass of Côtes du Rhône, from the Rhone Alps, with love.

3 - Safari Tent: Kanab, Utah

This third pick makes our list for many reasons, but the number one? Location, location, location. This destination is right next to the immaculate Grand Staircase National Park, as seen in the second photo below.

4 - Private Island: Little Diamond, Maine

If we were to pick one region in the world to camp for the rest of our days, it would probably be New England—which brings us to this private island rental in Maine.

5 - Tiny House: Rocky Mountains, Colorado

Don't say we didn't warn you! This gosh-darn adorable tiny house is what dreams are made of. Is that going overboard? Personally, we think not. All hail tiny houses!

Host Spotlight: Gail

By Jackie Dreyer

Editor's note: Each month, we'd like to introduce you to one of our wonderful Glamping Hub hosts and what inspired them to create a glamping site. This month, we have Gail, who manages this fairy-tale luxury cottage in West Glacier, Montana, and these stunning tree houses in Whitefish, Montana.

An exterior photo of the tree house cabin in Whitefish, Montana.

Looking out towards Glacier, Montana, and surrounded by woodlands and mountains, you'll be quick to want to call this tree house home.

1. When was the first time you heard the term glamping?

Yes, several years ago.

2. What inspired you to have your own glamping site?

I grew up with memories of a tree house! I was raised in Pennsylvania in the 60s, and my father was a contractor who built thousands of single-family homes. He always had scrap lumber around the house. With his help, my siblings and I built a rough tree house in an oak tree near our home.

Our tree house was a place that I could visit and anything was possible. It was a place without limitations where my imagination could run free. If I wanted it to be a rocket ship, a castle, or a mansion in my mind, it was. As a child in that tree house, nothing was impossible.

Our original tree house was very basic, but it fueled my desire for a "real" tree house, which wasn't fulfilled until I turned 58! This past fall, we started construction on Snow Bear Chalets—the world's first ski-in/ski-out tree houses!—which are located five feet from the slopes at Whitefish Mountain Resort in Whitefish, Montana.

The tree house's cozy interior brings the outdoors indoors,with stunning views from every room.

3. If you could describe your property or the glamping experience you offer in three words, what would they be?

Whimsical, luxurious, and unique.

4. What was your first glamping /camping experience?

Our tree houses!

5. Why would you recommend people to go glamping?

It opens up a whole new way to travel.

Ponderosa-17-Kitchen-1030x687

Guests will love the tree house's layout, including a well equipped kitchen for easily whipping up meals all trip long.

6. What should people expect when they come to your glamping site?

Expect to smile a lot!

7. What makes your property unique?

We are the world's first ski-in/ski-out tree houses.

8. What’s your favorite part about owning a glamping property?

Being able to stay here when it's not booked!

One of the tree house's charming bedrooms.

A good night's sleep is easily obtained from any of the cozy bedrooms at the tree house.

9. What makes your property eco-friendly?

We kept the trees on the property and built around them, as well as used the best environmentally-friendly products in construction, maintenance, and cleaning.

10. Anything else you’d like to add?

I'm passing on the tradition! When my five-year-old granddaughter first set foot in the turret of one of the tree houses, she went to the window, grabbed her hair and asked me to open the window. When I asked her why, she looked at me like I was clueless and said, "How can my prince climb the tower if I don't throw my hair down?" The magic and love of fairy-tale tree houses along with the belief of infinite possibility has been passed on to the next generation.

As if staying here couldn't get any more magical, check out the turreted ceiling, beautifully painted like the Montana night sky.

Blogger Spotlight: Kristina and Naizak

By Jessica Armstrong

There's nothing better than a summer glamping getaway (start planning yours for next year here!)—and even more so when (wo)man's best friend is coming along for the ride.

Kristina of Day in My Dreams and her best dog pal, Naizak, made their way over to a stunning Virginia cottage for their first Glamping with Pets vacation. We asked her to give us the inside scoop on glamping with her furry BFF, paw in hand.

Cottage with Mountain Views of Blue Ridge Parkway

Packs and pup in tow, Kristina is ready to go glamping.

What three words would you use to describe your Glamping Hub stay?

Relaxing, fun, and escape.

Cottage with Mountain Views of Blue Ridge Parkway

From the moment Naizak strutted through the door, he knew he found his home-away-from-home.

What are your packing essentials for every glamping trip?

Since glamping is a lot like camping, it's important to bring a few essentials! My must-haves include food (and plenty of it), bevies, your own toiletries, and a body prepped for relaxation.

What are your main steps to planning a getaway?

Scheduling a getaway can be difficult with a busy schedule. Set aside time in advance, and don't let other plans intervene—everyone needs time for themselves.

Cottage with Mountain Views of Blue Ridge Parkway

Enjoy this gorgeous view from the living room every day.

Do you prefer to travel in large groups, solo, or with a companion?

I love traveling in large groups or even alone! It's a totally different experience either way. If I have party pants on, I go with a group of my best girlfriends. When I need some time to unwind, I prefer to travel alone or with a single companion.

Cottage with Mountain Views of Blue Ridge Parkway

(Wo)man's best friend and glamper alike, these two pals sure are having a ball.

What is your main piece of advice for travelers planning their first glamping stay?

Be sure to think through your packing list thoroughly. If you're staying in a remote area, you may not be able to find what you need at the destination.

These plush couches are calling your name for some relaxation and a cozy afternoon nap.

What is your dream destination?

Bali!

If you were to visit a glamping accommodation tomorrow, where and what type would it be?

Top 7 Fall Getaways on the East Coast in 2017

By Bakari Olivetti

While many a region across the U.S. experiences a fine fall season, the real star of the autumn show is the East Coast area. Filled with pride and love for their stunning fall foliage, it's time Midwesterners, West-Coasters, and Southerners got a taste of what fall is like along the eastern edge of the U.S. Let us take you on a jaunt along the East Coast, stopping at all of our un-be-leaf-able glamping sites from which to watch the leaves change colors.

East Coast Maine-ia: Portland

A treehouse near Portland, Maine.

Looking out to the Back River of Maine, you'll love life perched high amongst the trees.

There's nothing like waking up to elevated views of lush woodlands and tranquil waters in secluded Maine. Top it off with a cedar hot tub, and relax the morning and night away. At less than an hour's drive, the city of Portland awaits glampers for the quintessential, New England fall experience. For lovers of the outdoors, there are endless hiking trails and fall foliage coloring nature at every angle. A popular spot toooh and ah over the leaves is Bradbury Mountain State Park.

Don't miss out on stocking up on Bean Boots in Freeport, a nearby town with the original LL Bean factory. All beer, wine, and food enthusiasts can find their niche at the variety of festivals throughout the fall months in Portland. As a seafood capital of the East Coast, fresh lobster, fried clams, and succulent oysters are awaiting your arrival. Let's just say no one will be feeling crabby while visiting Portland.

I Lo-Vermont: Burlington

A two-story tree house near Burlington, Vermont

This two-story tree house will make you wonder if you're living in a fairytale.

Known for beautiful foliage, abundant nature, and Ben & Jerry's, Vermont is your go-to stop this fall. Staying at this tree house will be an unparalleled experience—the handcrafted design includes a wrap-around staircase, large pines holding the floors together, and a panoramic room facing the Green Mountains. Set in the quaint town of Waterbury, there are many local shops to browse and nearby peaks to climb. In many surrounding towns, you will be busy between the harvest festivals, apple picking, corn mazes, and fall foliage.

At just a short drive away, both Ben and Jerry's and Cabot Creamery offer tours to see the products in action. Guests must travel half an hour to Burlington, the most populated city in the state, for beautiful views of Lake Champlain, local restaurants and shops on Church Street Marketplace, and the hopping art and music scene. It's hard to decide which will be sweeter—the pure Vermont maple syrup you'll taste or your time in the Green Mountain state.

Pahk the Cah in Massachusetts: Boston

A cabin on the sea near Boston, Massachusetts

Your family is going to absolutely love this charming cabin and its proximity to the ocean.

Perfect for a family trip on the weekend, this cabin is just steps to the ocean, set in the lovely coastal town of Rockport, Massachusetts. The indoors is simply elegant with a cozy feel and attractive decorations that will put you at ease. Enjoy a crisp morning sipping your coffee on the deck, and later, head to the magnificent city of Boston for the day. On the way, be sure to stop at Salem, a Halloween destination where the norm is to be dressed in spooky costumes while exploring the haunted houses and fall-themed shops.

Known for its crisp weather, rich history, and adoring sports fans, Boston is a perfect place to visit in the fall. Catch a seat (or better yet, a home run ball) at Fenway Park and watch the Red Sox defeat the Yankees. Or, walk along the Freedom Trail while viewing fall foliage, eat at restaurants near Faneuil Hall, or shop on Newbury Street.

Pennsyl in your Trip: Lancaster

An A-frame couples' cabin near Lancaster, Pennsylvania

The angled ceiling walls add to this cabin's cozy and romantic feel in every room.

Set on 10 acres of woodlands, this unique cabin will be the perfect place for a couple to stay this autumn. With a soaking tub and fireplace inside and a light-up hot tub and chimenea outside, there is no doubt you'll give this cabin an A(-frame)+. Just a bit north is Lancaster, a city that truly comes to life when fall arrives. Annual harvest festivals and Halloween celebrations fill up the fall months to keep everyone in the spirit.

Savor the taste of local products from the farmers' markets, take a ghost tour through the streets, or experience a truly core fall activity—apple picking. Fresh cider, warm cider donuts, and crisp, just-picked Macintosh apples are just the beginning of what can be found at the numerous apple orchards. What won't be found? Anyone having a rotten time in Lancaster.

Do you have it in ya to go to Virginia?: Blue Ridge Mountains

A rural cabin near the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia.

This countryside cabin will be all you need to relax and take in the sites of fall.

Every piece of this cabin speaks fall—from the warm color scheme to the forest-themed bedding and furniture and wooden accents in each room. The screened-in porch provides a relaxing space to sit back and enjoy the lush surrounding forest. Tucked just north of the Blue Ridge Mountains, this is the ideal location for fall activities.

You can hike trails surrounded by colorful trees, taste your way through the vineyards and wineries of the area, or visit the annual food, sport, and beer festivals. With over 400 miles of breathtaking sights, driving on the Blue Ridge Parkway provides hours of fall foliage viewing. After seeing such beautiful leaves, you'll stick to the area and won't want to branch out to see another place.

North Caro-lie-in-a Bed near: Asheville

An elevated cabin in the woodlands near Asheville, North Carolina

At this eco-friendly cabin you can see all the forest views–from the porch, deck, and hammock.

Imagine wooden furnishing, tree-themed decor, and quaint accents in each room. This elevated cabin is completely immersed in the forest, making you double take the log beams. No, you're not in a tree—you're just one with nature. Just a bit south, you'll reach the fall destination of Asheville. Known for its vibrant arts scene and historic architecture, autumn adds more of a reason for visitors to fall for the city. With its locally-sourced restaurants and over 15 farmers' markets, you will be tasting the fall harvest at every stop.

Situated near several national forests, Asheville is an easy drive to both the Great Smoky Mountains and the Blue Ridge Mountains. Whether you want to hike one mile or 10, there is a peak for you with lovely views of the foliage. The sounds of the wind sweeping past your ears won't be the only thing you'll hear. Prepare for the many music festivals lining the streets and, hey, next thing you know, you may be bopping down the sidewalk.

Georgia on my Mind: Savannah

A homey cabin on Saint Simons Island near Savannah, Georgia

Take advantage of this homey cabin while you can because you'll be missing it once you leave.

Wake up to beautiful river views just minutes from the Atlantic Ocean on Saint Simons Island. You may wake up thinking you're on a summer getaway at the beach until you remember the hype Savannah has during the autumn months—at times being called the most haunted city in America. Just a bit north in Savannah, you can go on one of the many ghost tours and explore the tales that surround the houses, squares, hotels, and restaurants that date back centuries. Vacationing families are long gone so the city won't be swarming with crowds. You can wander the graveyards, dine at Southern-fried restaurants, or attend a show at one of the many theaters.


And while these are just my top picks, don't forget to check out our thousands of other destinations and keep up with our blog to hear the inside scoop!

What is the Tiny House Movement?

Simply put, the tiny house movement is the recent trend to downsize one's physical living space. People are making the decision to give up their full-size homes for petite households that range anywhere from 100 to 400 square feet. The result? An eco-friendly, cost-saving, and sustainable lifestyle. These creatively-designed properties have all the necessities of a cozy, comfortable life while offering the motivation to keep up with a more active routine.

Gone are the days of hiding from the sun to lounge on the couch and binge on reality TV shows. Gone are the days of stressing about cleaning every corner of a three-bedroom home. Gone are the days of struggling to scrape up the funds to pay the mortgage. When living the tiny life, these worries diminish—giving you the opportunity to truly live life to the fullest.

What are tiny houses?

Tiny houses come in a variety of creative shapes and sizes and can accommodate an entire family. They can be built suite-style to resemble a hotel room or tall and narrow for a modern twist on a loft. They can be stand-still timber huts or miniature portable homes on wheels ready to take you all over the globe. The endless, innovative designs inspire a unique combination of simplicity and comfort—a lifestyle that will make you wonder why you ever dreamed of owning a many-storied mansion.

What are the benefits of tiny living?

The benefits of tiny living are plentiful. This life is suitable for anyone looking to go green, as these small structures use minimal resources and can easily be powered using renewable energy. Additionally, the smaller physical capacity calls for less material posessions, reducing the amount of clutter that seems endless in today’s materialistic world. Fewer things and less space also means diminished costs!

Lastly, tiny living adds the feeling of freedom to the mix. The accommodation provides all the necessities needed for a comfortable lifestyle but now, the temptation to waste away indoors is lacking. The tiny-house movement is suitable for anyone looking to benefit from these perks—and let’s face the truth, everyone is.
