5 Spectacular Spots to go Glamping

Summer time and travel season is coming up quick!  As you know from many of my blog stories:  I travel whenever possible, and love to share the latest trip ideas here when I can. Many like to take their vacations by kicking back in a lovely hotel or resort-  ahh that is my idea of a vacation.  For others, camping is a very popular choice for a getaway.

Glamping site in Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming


So no one is probably surprised to hear this, but I am not a fan of camping!  Ha anywhere you have to rough it, hike to a restroom, and sleep on the wet slimy ground in a tent- is not for me! However camping is a great holiday pastime for many Americans, and other countries around the world.  Sometimes it's the only option for some to afford a week away from the rat race.

Fortunately there is a solution for those of us that like to enjoy the outdoors, but want it more resort style!.  Enter: Glamping Hub. I am excited to share this site for unique camping experiences across the globe.



Glamping Hub offers rentals for tree houses, cabins, safari tents, campervans, and tipis in popular destinations.  Imagine the  excitement when I found out they have fully loaded summer homes for rent as well!  I am excited to parnter with Glamping Hub on an upcoming stay in the beautiful state of Oregon.  We will be staying in a cute cottage near Portland, so stayed tuned for the details coming next month! Today though, I wanted to share:

 5  Glamping Spots You Should Try!

1) The Big Island Of Hawaii:

 A spectacular Villa nestled in a tropical paradise at Kailua Kona. This beautiful rental will host up to six guests. It has three bedrooms that each have a glass door opening up to a lush garden- with a beautiful view. The master suite is a haven in itself: located down a covered walkway away from the main structure.

If you are not a fan of salt in the hair when taking a dip, check out the amazing pool! Whoa- It would be hard to pry yourself away from that deck! The nearest town, beach, and restaurants are a short 5 minute walk. Aloha is calling - this one is going on my bucket list for sure! 

2) Seattle, WA


How about a luxury tree house stay without luxury prices. This dreamy Northwest experience is perfect for those on a budget.  This fun cabin up high, is the best  mix of the outdoors and modern glam.  The rental has two floors and all the modern comforts of home. This is the perfect getaway to enjoy a weekend, or disconnect from the business of life. However if you must stay connected - wifi is available! Additional details here,  on how you can glamp treehouse style.

3) Coachella Valley, Palm Springs CA


If you are a fan of live music like I am, then most likely you have heard of Coachella, the biggest music festival in the United States.  It's too late for this year's festival, as it just ended last weekend.

 No worries though, you can start planning for next year by reserving this stone built bungalow! It is situated in the hills of the Coachella valley, with stunning desert views. Grab your cactus juice and sunnies, you are are in for an awesome historical adventure! Palm Springs is a place you will fall in love with fast. I spent a few days there last summer and didn't want to leave! This oasis in the desert sleeps two- the perfect spot for honeymooners or couples!

4) San Francisco Bay, CA



How about a week in a fabulous Yurt near SFO?  I have never stayed in a Yurt, but I've heard they are very popular accommodations for enjoying the outdoors. San Francisco is one of the most dreamy cities, and is a favorite of mine!  I spent 4 years of college close to the Bay Area, so weekends were spent exploring the many exciting adventures close by.

This luxury cabin is located in San Raefal, overlooking the San Fransisco Bay. It doesn't get any better than that! The round little abode sleeps up to four people. Be sure to make a stop at the market and pick up all the goodies for grilling- barbecue party time!  The spacious deck has a hot tub , where you can soak surrounded by lush scenery.  No stress here, unplug and relax

5) The Blue Ridge Mountains




Hop on board for a ride through the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. I've never been to the southeast or the beautiful state of North Carolina, but hope to in the near future.  This beautiful log cabin is in a great location for outdoor enthusiasts. If relaxing is all that is planned: a hammock, charming sunroom, and an incredible hot tub await you.

A home away from home is a fitting description for this mountain escape. The cabin is equipped with a full kitchen, a spacious loft, and even direct TV.  If you are an animal lover like myslef- you will be a happy camper, as farm animals are located on the property to enjoy.


There are so many more options to explore on the Glamping Hub site. I hope you will take a peak, and perhaps plan a camping adventure soon. I rounded up a few of my favorites, and plan to book some of these for vacations coming up.

What is your preferred way to camp? Is it in a cabin, a fully loaded summer home, or in a tent?  Where ever you choose for your next vacation, take one soon!


Pin it for later:

  19. These look gorgeous, especially the one in Hawaii! I'm not much of a camper either, but I guess I never understood the real definition of "glamping" either. According to #5 though, I've stayed at a cabin in the Smoky Mountains in the woods! Absolutely gorgeous, so I guess I have gone "glamping" before! :)
