Ready to start searching for glamping sites in New England? Don’t miss these top picks. Just keep in mind that some of these are only open seasonally from spring through fall so be sure to check for availability. Also, look for whether or not they offer any heaters or cooling fans depending on the season of your visit. You will probably want to download my glamping packing list before you go.
Looking for even more glamping getaways? You can also find glamping spots including yurts, cabins, treehouses, houseboats, tiny houses, campers, tents, and more on vacation rental sites like vrbo or GlampingHub.com. And my friend Kirsten has a guide to the best places for glamping with kids in the U.S.
