11 of the Best Glamping Experiences in New York State in iLoveNY

By I LOVE NY staff

Glamping takes one of life’s simple pleasures—sleeping in the great outdoors—and elevates it with creature comforts and modern conveniences. There’s no tent to set up, no hard rocks underneath your sleeping bag, and no outhouses. New York State not only has gorgeous nature to escape to, but truly charming and creative glamping options. Read on for accommodations that offer goat yoga, cow-cuddling, guided nature tours, horseback riding, and more!


Harmony Hill Retreat Center 

The glamping at Harmony Hill in the Catskills is a cross between camping and a cabin stay. Here, your lodging is an adorable, elevated yurt, replete with electricity, flushable toilets, lockable doors, a king-size bed, reading chairs, lamps, and a fully equipped kitchen. You can also cook on the charcoal grill outdoors and in either case, enjoy your food out on your personal deck. Basically, want for nothing while still enjoying the peaceful calm of sleeping deep in the woods. Adding to your comfort and enjoyment, each yurt has a domed skylight and a ceiling fan, though the density of the trees keeps things pretty cool even in summer. Your yurt even comes with its own designated parking spot. (Photo courtesy of Harmony Hill Lodging and Retreat Center.)
