Can you believe it? It feels like just yesterday we were scribbling down our New Year's resolutions, and now, here we are almost halfway through the year! More than ever, people all over the globe are catching on that glamping is truly one of the most breathtaking ways to spend time in nature and appreciate the beauty earth has to offer, and we are happy to guide them to that perfect glamping experience.
We've looked at the bookings for 2018 so far to see where have been the most popular places to stay on Glamping Hub. Whether for those yet to try glamping or just to book their holiday this year, we present the best bit of travel inspiration you'll stumble across today. Without further ado, here are our 5 most booked glamping sites of 2018!
1. Pet-Friendly Safari Cabin Tent near Warner Springs, California
Though the adorable dog in photo is not included, this pet-friendly accommodation is a firm-favorite and was the most visited in all of 2017, too, so we’re not surprised it's proving to be popular again this year. Being spacious, having panoramic views, and with the added perk of a private hot tub, staying here offers the opportunity to enjoy nature in a comfortable way.
Glampers will love the easy access to all the basics needed, such as coffee, good DVDs, and a pizza oven (a nice touch, if we do say so ourselves), as well as being able to completely disconnect from your day-to-day. If you are bringing a pet, you'll love watching them enjoy the great outdoors along with you, too. And yes, before you ask, it's in easy reach of Wi-Fi, just in case you need to check in with the outside world.
2. Eco-Friendly Tree House in Santa Cruz Mountains near Monterey Bay, California
A leisurely stroll through the woods will get you to your front door of your vacation rental, which just so happens to be a tree house! A queen-size bed, a well-equipped kitchen, and a hot tub will assure your comfort levels are met while you take in the beauty of the surrounding redwood forest. If you are a keen hiker, the hiking trails at The Forest of Nisene Park come highly recommended, so make sure you make some time for it.
One of the things we personally love is that this tree house is just 17 minutes from the coast, so you can really get the both worlds—perfect for indecisive travelers. One thing is for sure, though: it is guaranteed to be truly unique.
3. Inviting Cabin surrounded by the Redwoods Forest near Big Sur, California
It's time for some cabin love. You can really become at one with nature in this beautiful rental—bathing in its private outdoor baths, while being surrounded by the Big Sur redwood forest, a tranquil creek that runs by the property, and the chirping blue jays. It’s enough to truly allow you to unplug from the business of your standard day-to-day, but Wi-Fi can be requested if needed.
Better yet, you'll only be 15 minutes away from Carmel Beach for the coast-chasers among your party. The city of Carmel, where the cabin is located, has a European feel and a rich history that glampers can learn about, but you can just as easily go and simply enjoy sampling the various restaurants and boutiques on offer.
Being one of our most popular properties, we can tell you two things you won't forget about this cabin: the view and the best night's sleep you’ve had in ages.
4. Peaceful Green House near Silverton, Oregon
With this glamping gem, you'll find yourself amid the infamous Pacific Northwest in Oregon—both near the world-famous Silver Falls State Park and situated on a 67-acre organic farm. Animal lovers will feel truly at home here, with cats, dogs, and horses roaming the grounds.
At this cabin, the true beauty lies in its walls, which are deliberately transparent, so you always feel surrounded by the beautiful landscape. And, of course, like many of our popular glamping sites, a huge plus is the hot tub, which will only further help you relax amid these tranquil surroundings.
5. Romantic Tree House in the Redwoods of Santa Cruz, California
Get ready to fulfill all your childhood dreams in style. This tree is small but perfectly formed, perfect for you and your other half to have a nature-based escape. You'll naturally want to spend some quality time with your fellow glampers while on vacation, which is easily done at this secluded accommodation.
Situated not too far from Santa Cruz, you'll be able to easily explore local shops and tuck into some quality cuisine, too. So what else can you expect from this property? Aside from great access to hiking trails, as is the case with most of our best accommodations, you are only a five-minute walk to the world famous Mystery Spot, a 15-minute drive to the beaches of Santa Cruz, and close to two golf courses—sounds like a good plan to us!
