Have a look at our top picks for luxurious glamping experiences all across the region.
1. Glamping in Hephzibah (Chester, MA)
This four-person stunning site is a short drive north-east from Springfield, near the charming suburb of Chester and nestled in a woody enclave. Rustic fairy lights shine over the raised platform upon which your tent rests. A couple of sturdy wooden chairs are decked out for your comfort by the fire pit for late-night snacks or early morning coffee.
There’s a wood stove for heat inside the tent, while a heated outdoor shower provides a washing experience like no other. Both parking and pets are allowed on site.
The beautiful natural sites of Chester-Blandford State Forest and Glendale Falls are only a few miles away. The surrounding woods are famously plentiful with apple trees and wild blackberry bushes, from which visitors are free to pick.
2. Lava Rock (Center Tuftonboro, NH)
Situated in the Canaan Valley near the dramatic Ossipee Mountains, the six-person Lava Rock site is a fun hike away from both Lake Winnipesaukee and the very top of Mt. Shaw, with its gorgeous, panoramic views to the iconic White Mountains on the horizon.
The nearby pond is ideal for wild swimming. The freshly-cut grass field surrounding the site provides plenty of space for soccer, tag football, or softball with friends.
The refreshing Canaan brook flows into a propane heater to provide you with a luxurious outdoor shower. There’s also a wood stove, fire pit, and free parking on site, as well as a charcoal grill by the banks of the pond, making it perfect for delicious barbecues with the family.
3. The Perch (South Woodstock, VT)
Set on a hillside with views of rolling, forested hills, and just a few miles from the delightful small town of Woodstock, this four-person site is a must-visit for glamping enthusiasts.
You can find Adirondack chairs laid out on the deck. Settle down in them to soak in the special sunset views across this small Vermont valley. A wood stove, fire pit, and campfire grill are also provided, and the domed tent’s queen-sized bed is spacious and comfy.
4. Maine Vibes Farm (Ellsworth, ME)
This quirky 10-person campsite is nestled in among the freshwater lakes and rivers just inland from the coast of Maine. More specifically, this campsite lies by the banks of Branch Lake: If you’re feeling particularly adventurous, you can kayak or canoe through the nearby coves and caves.
The coastal town of Bar Harbor is nearby, and it has a selection of high-quality pubs, seafood restaurants, and taverns if you want to experience delicious, local Maine cuisine and beer.
If you fancy something a bit quieter, sit outside your domed tent on the chair or the camp bench and listen to the mating calls of the local Loon bird all evening long.
New England is a wonderfully eclectic and diverse area, and glamping is an immersive and comfortable way to discover more about its nature and wildlife.
