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.

Host Spotlight: Gail

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.

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.

A view from the tree house's great room and its welcoming balcony.

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.

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

From your website!

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

The Onion House is something like five-star luxury camping. With no outside walls (only screen and stained glass), you are fully immersed in the lush tropical environment. I had a hunch that travelers would delight in it as much as I do.

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

Artistic, Joyful, Transformational.

The glamping property

4. What was your first glamping /camping experience?

When I spent the summer at our property when I was 10 years old.

5. Why would you recommend people to go glamping?

To expand your concept of the possible. The built environment has a profound effect on the psyche. As Winston Churchill said, "First we shape our buildings. Afterward, they shape us." Becoming attuned to the rhythms of an unusual setting can awaken and invigorate the senses.

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

An unforgettable experience of delight, with privacy to swim and immerse yourself in nature. One guest said, "I feel like a butterfly living under a leaf!" Guests have the place to themselves, with the freedom to swim 'au naturel,' sharing an eccentric slice of Hawaii's history.

A view from the pool.

7. What makes your property unique?

The visual aesthetics are like nowhere else on earth. This wildly original structure, a landmark of organic architecture, was built for the McCormick Spice family, with a history of colorful characters. Guests' vacations provide funds to renovate and maintain this unique architectural legacy.

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

I love the impact that this unique place has had on so many people's lives. Some come to celebrate their marriage, anniversary, or a special birthday. Others give themselves a personal creative retreat. Families often say it is the best vacation they've ever had together.

9. What makes your property eco-friendly?

We try to reduce, reuse, and recycle, all while growing tropical fruits, some of which guests may have never experienced, like jaboticaba, guanabana, pomelo, and loquat. Organic architecture seeks to embody natural forms within the built environment—in this case, the shape of a sea shell.

10. Anything else you’d like to add?

A private retreat in a work of art can have a profound transformative effect. One guest wrote, "There was my life BEFORE the Onion House, and my life AFTER the Onion House." Just as the unorthodox setting of the Onion House nourished my own artwork, it continues to spark creativity among our guests. The environment of 'no boundaries' without walls and square corners conveys a sense of the unexpected possibilities in life, and people tell me their lives have been transformed.
