Glamping in Maine
Glamping’s perfect for nature-lovers who want a gentler, glamorous camp. Think decked out A-frames, cottages, boats, and sturdy canvas abodes with comfy beds, linens, baths, even electricity. Our state’s diverse landscape makes it just the place to explore this growing trend.
One location in Southern Maine includes luxurious offerings, including their safari-like glamp tents for two or families of four. Glampers will appreciate high ceilings, unique furnishings, mini fridges, a/c and heat. There’s a general store (order a lobster dinner here) and grab coffee at their snack bar. There’s a saltwater pool and kayak rentals for exploring nearby waterways.
Close to the Quebec border in the Jackman-Moose River Valley region you’ll find well-equipped cabins that even have cable TV and are pet-friendly. Take in stunning views of Big Wood Lake and breathe in the mountain air. Year-round activities include hiking, rafting and ice fishing.
If yurts are what you’re looking for you’ll find some on Runaround Pond in Durham. These round eco-friendly units accommodate couples to families and include a woodburning stove, kitchenette, living/dining area, and bunk beds. There’s 100 acres to explore and the year-round activities are endless.
If you find yourself longing to vacation near the seaside town of Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park, and longing to try glamping, there are glamps in the area perfect for four or six guests, are wood-framed with sturdy canvas tenting–and interior walls add privacy.
They have kitchenettes, baths, hot water, electricity, and Wi-Fi. One glamp is wheelchair accessible. A hammock promises naps and there’s a firepit for making s’mores.
Try a lofty experience on a midcoast Maine island–touted as one of the state’s best-kept secrets. These tiny heated treehouses are nicely furnished and overlook Maine’s Back River. They have funky decks with a cedar hot tub–accessible only by a rope bridge.
