Tent cabins in New Hampshire are popping up everywhere, thanks to the increased demand for glamping options. For those who love clear night skies, quiet solitude and immersion in nature, without the hassle of pitching a tent or sleeping on hard ground—glamping is a great solution. Tent cabins are minimal structures, sparse enough to hear the sound of the wind whooshing through the forest, and yet robust enough to give you the added security and comfort of a cabin.
Tent cabins usually require zero set-up and are ready-made. Accordingly, prices are going to be higher than traditional tent camping. Tent and cabin camping in New Hampshire is available at several state parks, but we’ve found a few that specifically offer tent cabins (or similar structures) for glamping. These six are close to recreational activities, have plenty of added comforts, and are easy to book online.
The Lost Boys Hideout
The Lost Boys Hideout gives visitors the chance to stay at a fabulous tent cabin in the New Hampshire woods. This particular tent cabin location is conveniently situated near two state parks. The main downside here is that the Lost Boys Hideout only has one site — although it can accommodate up to ten guests. Guests have plenty of privacy at this site, plus some added glamping amenities like a toilet, campfire ring and a hot shower. Dogs are allowed, and a short drive from here you’ll find a quaint town with a delightful beach. Similarly, Greenfield and Pillsbury State Parks are both an easy drive away.
In southern NH, near Bennington, is a fabulous tent cabin yurt on 27 wooded acres. This glamping site offers a bathroom, allows pets, and is ideally located near the Monadnock region for plenty of recreation opportunities. The yurt is furnished with a queen-sized bed, and it offers WiFi, television, music and other modern day conveniences. Kitchen amenities include a microwave, coffeemaker and five-gallon water jug. This tent cabin even has a roomy deck that overlooks a waterfall, where glampers can enjoy the sounds of nature in a gorgeous setting.
Treehouse Tent Cabin
For an otherworldly camping experience, this treehouse takes tent cabin camping in New Hampshire to a truly unique level. Constructed using a large tent, high up on a wooden platform in the trees, guests bring their own air mattress and sleeping bags. There is also a barn area that offers an outhouse and a shared kitchen, including water. The outdoor fire pit is a wonderful place to gather after sunset, and there is firewood for sale on site. The area is excellent for lounging or taking long walks along the interconnected trail system nearby. This treehouse is located in Chatham, NH and available for reservation on Tentrr.
White Mountain National Forest TePee
In the midst of 50 acres of woodlands sits an old school bus, yurts, retro campers, and the original tent cabin: a genuine tepee. The White Mountain National Forest is home to this unique camping destination, which holds up to six guests. Nearby amenities include convenient grocery shopping and hiking. As for glamping standards, this tepee is on the minimum side of the spectrum. However, it does include an inflatable mattress, a wood-burning stove, and access to an outhouse, plus another additional bathroom on site. A camp kitchen is set up centrally on the main property for guests to use. To find more information about this unique property, just do a quick Google search for “authentic tipi NH”.

The setting is gorgeous, and the tents cabins come in 2, 4 and 6-person versions—as well as larger group sizes.
