When you’re ready to emerge from your suite, enjoy kayaking, yoga, golf, and much more.

Location: Mendocino, California
Calling their experience “camping made comfy,” Mendocino Grove features fully-furnished tents and Airstream trailers. They take a more rustic approach than other glamping sites, however; they suggest you bring camping supplies, as they do not supply cookware or dining ware. But, for those looking for a fresh towel and hot shower, Mendocino Grove definitely has it.

Location: Big Sur, California
Ventana Big Sur allows you to be immersed in nature but still sleep on a cozy mattress. The glamping sites are in a secluded canyon location that’s only available by foot. You’ll feel a world away but will enjoy hotel-style amenities like heated floors.

Location: Marfa, Texas
Marfa's El Cosmico allows you to glamp your way with a variety of shelters available to rent.

Location: Chestertown, New York
Sleep in handcrafted, log-embellished canvas wall tents in the southern Adirondack mountains when you stay at Posh Primitive.
