Fancy camping is the way to go—no bugs, no backaches, but the same spectacular views. So pack your luggage and leave your sleeping bags at home. These four glamping go-tos merge indoor luxury with the great outdoors.
Marfa might be a small town—the population is just about 2,000—but it’s seriously big on southwestern culture and style. (Shout out to Prada Marfa!) Free spirits will fall in love with the bunkhouse vibe at El Cosmico, where you can choose from chic vintage trailers, yurts, tents, and teepees complete with heated mattress pads and vibey southwestern decor. Chill in a wood-fired hot tub, check out art galleries in town, and take in Texas stars in the property’s “hammock grove.”
2.Clayoquot Wilderness Resort
Tofino, British Columbia
If you’re going to travel as far as the remote Canadian wilderness (and sleep within a biosphere reserve), you might as well take advantage of your surroundings and stay in a tent. Clayoquot Wilderness Resort has 20 not-your-average options: roomy and opulent tents with majestic beds, antique furniture, and wood stoves. Pull yourself away for archery, horseback riding, or a trip to the hot springs.
3.Nomad Ridge at The Wilds
This adults-only campsite of decked-out yurts sits on an endangered animal preserve. (Fun fact: It’s owned by the Columbus Zoo). But a little more than an hour outside of Columbus, Ohio, you won’t find city living—rather wide-open skies, an on-site chef, and heavenly amenities like bamboo floors and private decks. Your stay comes with two safari tickets, so you can see this country’s wildlife up close and personal.
4.Dunton River Camp
Choose from mountain or river tents at Dunton River Camp, a gem of a Colorado glamping getaway in the middle of a romantic ghost town. From either campsite, you can take in epic alpine valley views from chaise lounges and cruise mountain and river trails. Oh, and each tent comes with two mountain bikes! (Did we mention your tent has a six-foot tub and Wi-Fi, too?) You’ll be hard-pressed to ever consider a hotel room again.
