Vacations soothe our soul in a way nothing else can; sometimes we just need to physically remove ourselves from our everyday surroundings in order to appreciate them to their fullest extent. But vacations are expensive, right?
They don't have to be! How would you feel if we told you that we've compiled a group of glamping sites that are all from under $100 a night? With these affordable vacation rentals, everyone can use their time off this fall without being forced to take a staycation instead.
The best budget vacations along the West Coast this fall run from Washington all the way down through California, giving glampers options for a getaway to cozy tented cabins on Lake Thomas Edison (from $72/night), a jaw-dropping, all-glass rental in Three Rivers (from $60/night), or an incredibly romantic, cozy cabin for two (from $94/night) surrounded by Redwoods.
Washington offers up restored vintage trailers (from $88/night) with a whole lot of charm and a unique cottage made from all recycled materials (from $77/night), while Oregon features both rustic, authentic tipis (from $55/night) near the Siskiyou National Forest and luxury tents near Wallowa Lake (from $93/night).
East Coast & New England
Starting up in the northenmost part of the East Coast, you'll have your choice between a mobile Airstream that can be set up where you'd like in Maine (from $92/night), a cozy yurt in Vermont (from $60/night), or this 1920s lightkeeper's home next to a lighthouse in New York (from $33/night).
Virginia boasts an intimate, rural couple's hut (from $82/night) and a woodland cabin near the Pigg River (from $81/night). Venture a little further south to North Carolina, and you'll run into rustic tented cabins near Moravian Falls (from $88/night) and romantically decorated bell tents near Pisgah National Forest (from $82/night).
Your wallet will be thanking you after booking one of these budget-friendly rentals in the Mountain States, like this mountainview Airstream near Tuscon, Arizona (from $72/night) or this swanky cabin on a sustainble beef ranch (from $82/night).
In Utah, try a stay at this luxury tent on a cowboy ranch, a group adventure in the Moab Desert at these luxury tipis, or an off-the-grid yurt. Montana gives you the choice of either a Mongolian yurt near Flathead Lake, the largest natural freshwater lake in the western U.S., or top-notch tents and tipis near Glacier National Park.
Don't forget about Colorado, too, when looking for an affordable accommodation this fall. In Colorado, have your pick between an incredible cabin in the San Juan Mountains with its own private sauna, a luxurious tipi in between Gunnison and Blue Mesa Lakes, or a rustic cabin near hot springs and a ski resort.
