It’s officially glamping season! Think of glamping as the perfect combination of traditional camping (tents and fire pits!) and a boutique hotel stay (a real bed!). It’s one of our favorite ways to spend a little time in nature. Here are the places we want to set up camp this summer:
Located 10 minutes from downtown East Hampton, Terra Glamping allows you to set up camp at Cedar Point County Park. With views of Sag Harbor and Shelter Island, these safari-style tents are designed with queen beds and front porches for taking in those water views. Your nightly s’mores are also included.
Just a ferry ride away from downtown Manhattan, Collective Retreats offers three different tent styles on Governors Island. Start your morning with breakfast at Three Peaks Restaurant and a yoga class, and spend the afternoon biking ride around the island. The perfect getaway is just minutes from the busy city.
With safari tents tucked into the woods, Firelight Camps in Ithaca is a true escape. While you’re there, go on a foraging hike, take an outdoor yoga class, or enjoy an in-tent massage. Locally-sourced continental breakfast is also served daily.
At Mendocino Grove, you’ll feel like your back at summer camp. Spread across 37 acres, Mendocino offers both classic and family safari-style tents set amongst the forest. Guests can enjoy ocean views, hiking trails, bocce ball, and yoga on Saturday mornings.
The Ranch at Rock Creek offers a luxury glamping experience like no other. Set amongst the wildflowers with mountain views, the canvas tents at Rock Creek feature gas stoves and decks with creek views. The Trapper Cabin includes a private cedar soaking tub, which is perfect for unwinding after a day full of fishing and hiking.
