Whether you are planning a weekend getaway full of adventure or looking for a unique and picturesque place to celebrate a special occasion, these places to go glamping in New Hampshire have you covered! As a bit of a glamping fanatic, I’ve traveled around New England looking for the most unique spots to lay my head, testing out everything from rustic tents to glamorous cabins, tiny homes, and more.
Glamping is the perfect option for people like me that love the outdoors but aren’t willing to sacrifice some creature comforts. Each glamping spot has its trade offs such as a shared bathhouse versus private bathroom, or clean, modern decor versus basic necessities. I’ll walk you through some of those differences to help you choose the right glamping accommodations for your travel style.
Best Places to go Glamping in New Hampshire
From Southern New Hampshire to the Great North Woods, and the Lakes and White Mountains in between, here are my personal picks for the best places to go glamping in New Hampshire:
- Best for Hikers: Alpine Garden Glamping in centrally located in the White Mountains just minutes from dozens of popular trails
- Best for Families: Huttopia White Mountains or KOA Lincoln/North Woodstock both have a variety of accommodations that will fit families and an array of on-site campground amenities such as pools, ponds, playgrounds, and more.
- Best for Couples: Lumen Nature Retreat has a picturesque, brook or pond-side setting that is a perfect backdrop to a romantic weekend — plus there are two Nordic saunas on site!

Glamping in the White Mountains
The White Mountains in New Hampshire is one of the most popular glamping spots in the Granite State, offering excellent choices with varying levels of amenities and privacy. Be sure to read my full reviews to get into the nitty-gritty for each.
Alpine Garden Glamping, Bartlett
Alpine Garden Glamping is a family-run camping village that is centrally located in the White Mountains. It is just minutes from popular attractions like Storyland, Attitash Mountain, Arethusa Falls, and dozens of popular trails, making it my choice for hikers that like to get an early start on the trails to beat the crowds. This camping village is smaller than some others in the region (like Huttopia or Lumen), and it offers a small selection of cabins, “hobbit houses”, RV spots, and even a treehouse on the grounds of a working winery and cidery.
Even though it is small, it still offers some nice amenities such as a heated swimming pool and an on-site camp store. Plus, there is even a winery that is open for tastings Thursdays through Mondays from 12:00 pm to 6:00 pm. The cabins are newly-built and have a fresh, yet folksy, lodge-like design with bear-themed accents and retro touches like a vintage turntable and modern amenities like a Nespresso machine.
The dome-shaped hobbit homes have queen bed, making it perfect for solo travelers or couples that like to snuggle, while the treehouse and cabins accommodate two to five people for small groups or families.
Alpine Garden Glamping is located at 1255 US-302, Bartlett, NH 03812. Click to learn more or book.
Huttopia White Mountains, Albany
Huttopia is not exactly luxurious, I describe it more as “ready-made” camping or “rustic glamping”, but it is incredibly family friendly. This European glamping resort has locations in the White Mountains, Southern Maine, the Adirondacks, California, Canada, and more. It offers rustic, but well-equipped tents including the Canadienne and the Trappeur, which has a tiny but private bathroom, as well as cabins that are bookable all year.
The basic accommodations offer up everything you need, from a propane-fueled camp stove, fridge, sink, cookery, electricity, fire pits, and even a full bathroom in most, which is more than many glamping accommodations that don’t offer any cooking capabilities beyond over the outdoor fire.
In my opinion, the highlight of Huttopia is the lakeside setting and the amenities and activities. There are family-friendly amenities like a heated pool, game room, basketball court, kayak rentals, and an Airstream food truck. While the campground is large, it is arranged to give each tent site or cabin some privacy and has a nice community vibe without the RV culture that you find at a more traditional campground.

Huttopia White Mountains is located at 57 Pine Knoll Rd., Albany, NH 03818. Click to learn more or book.
Lumen Nature Retreat, North Woodstock
Lumen Nature Resort offers 35 Nordic-style accommodations including cabins, simple A-frame tents, and deluxe safari tents. The design aesthetic is top-notch, making it in Instagram delight. The cabins offer high-end amenities such as luxurious beds, a Marshall speaker, pour over coffee kettle, a mini-fridge, and kitchen flatware and dishes.
With large floor-to-ceiling windows in front of the bed or indoor fireplace (depending on the cabin), I found Lumen Nature Retreat perfect for a romantic getaway, especially with two Nordic saunas on the property. The only downside is that the cabins don’t offer private bathrooms, so you need to walk a couple of minutes to a shared climate-controlled bathhouse.
The 20-acre property is just minutes from a major ski resort and the top attractions in the White Mountains and offers a year round glamping experience with its heated (and air conditioned) cabins.

KOA, Lincoln / Woodstock
There are KOA (Kampgrounds of America) campgrounds all across the country, including quite a few in New Hampshire. While KOA is a popular choice for families with RVs or camping tents, many of the KOA Resort and Holiday properties offer glamping options like deluxe cabins. The KOA Holiday in Lincoln/Woodstock, NH in the White Mountains takes it a step further with multiple glamping options including a Conestoga Wagon (which has a private full bathroom just outside), a tree cabin, deluxe and camping cabins, and a luxury safari tent with two bedrooms, a full bathroom, kitchenette, and even a television!
Between the family-size accommodation options and the family-friendly amenities, the KOA in Lincoln / Woodstock is one of my picks for families that want to go glamping in New Hampshire. You will find a playground, jumping mat, mini-golf, disc golf, and a seasonal pool, all minutes from the most popular White Mountain attractions like Mount Washington, Franconia State Park, and the scenic Kancamagus Highway.

In addition to private rooms in the lodge, Hub North offers a smattering of yurts and bell tents just minutes away from hiking trailheads in the Northern Presidential Range of the White Mountains. The tents are fully-equipped with a king or queen bed, linens, extra blankets, and towels. While it is off-the-grid, charging and connectivity is available at the Lodge and LED lighting and fans are provided for all tents and the yurt is equipped with solar power.

Glamping in the Lakes Region
While there aren’t the same glamping resorts in the New Hampshire Lakes Region as in the White Mountains, there are still some special glamping hideaways and treehouses for a unique stay.
Hemlock Hideout Treehouse, Salisbury
Can’t decide between a tree house and a glamping tent? The Hemlock Hideaway is the perfect combination of both in a true off-the-grid location for those that want to get away from it all with plenty of privacy in a natural setting. The Hemlock Hideaway’s roof is made of greenhouse plastic, letting in plenty of natural light.
Inside, there is a bedroom with one queen bed, a living area that has a small table, and a kitchenette. Outside, the treehouse is equipped with a fire pit with a grill, an outdoor swing, a picnic table, firewood, an outhouse, and a camp shower.

The owners also have another glamping tent, the Birchwood Hideout. The Hemlock Hideaway is open from May to October (depending on the weather) and has a propane heater in the bedroom for cold weather.

It is hard to believe this luxury cabin is actually a two-story treehouse! If you want a luxury adventure near Lake Sunapee, this treehouse is a great pick because it offers all the modern amenities to keep you comfortable year round.

Glamping in Southern New Hampshire
From tiny houses to camping cabins, there are plenty of glamping options just a short drive from Boston, Manchester, and Concord.
Tuxbury Tiny House, South Hampton
Tuxbury Pond RV Resort has a small village of tiny homes that are so adorable they each have names and it is easy to image them anthropomorphized. Each Tiny Home is unique and ranges from 180 to 300 square feet but are packed with features including bedrooms and full kitchens. There are five models to choose from with some sleeping up to 5 or 6, making it a nice option for families.
Perfect for adventurers looking to try something different, the resort is located on the shores of Tuxbury Pond and is 30 minutes from the Salisbury-Hampton beaches or charming Portsmouth, NH. The Village is part of the larger Tuxbury Pond RV Resort, so it has a different feel than some glamping campgrounds, but they are tucked away near the pond and across a field from most of the RVs for a bit of peaceful seclusion. However, tiny house guests do have access to the campground pool, playground, camp store, and other amenities and activities.
