Top Glamping in Maine Properties to Book

Drawing inspiration from the ancient yurt tents that originated amongst Asian tribes, Acadia Yurts are hands down the most unique experience you can have on Mount Desert Island. Set in the middle of Acadia National Park with 5 acres of forest to explore, it is well suited for a retreat with friends and family. The larger yurts are able to accommodate six guests while the mid-sized yurts will hold four. If it’s a romantic escape that’s on the cards, consider the aptly named Tiny House.
The wellness center offers a variety of facilities including yoga, an infrared sauna, a couples massage room and a floatation tank. Inquire for pricing.
Recent Review: “My girlfriend and I had an amazing stay at the Beech Mtn Yurt. We had a longer than planned drive to Acadia and arrived when it was pitch black out. The first thing we noticed was that Karen and Aaron had left the light on for us and the illuminated trail to the yurts. Once we settled in, there was everything we needed inside; including heating from the 50 degree weather. It was the perfect glamping experience. The park and Bar Harbor were only ever about a 25 min drive to and from after a long day of hiking. The bed was seriously the most comfortable bed I’ve ever slept in at a rental property and we plan on buying the pillows for our own home. Our favorite thing was having the light enter the ceiling dome waking us up and watching the stars at night.“

This secluded cabin and campsite is ideal for those who love an off-the-grid experience. Sitting beside two mountain streams (yes you read that right!), this cabin has a unique outdoor kitchen paired up with a picnic table. It’s a pretty frills-free experience.

You’ll find a myriad of lakes, mountains and amenities nearby. Choose from white water rafting, ATV trails or simply dip your ties and relax at the many streams and lakes scattered around. Celebrate your summer as you’ve always wanted to here!

If Long Pond sounds familiar to you, this is the very one Ernest Thompson came to seek refuge when writing his play “On Golden Pond”.
The decades may have sped by but it still retains the rural charm that lured Ernest Thompson. In short, come here to escape the crowds and the hurried urban life.
Every inch of this serene cottage is designed to recreate that feel. An enclosed porch opens to the clear waters, accentuating the feeling of relaxation and rejuvenation. Swimming is possible thanks to your own dock and swim platform. It’s some distance from the roads so there’s plenty of seclusion. At the same time, the nearby vacation towns of Mt. Vernon and Belgrade Lakes are close enough if you are in the mood for great shopping and dining.
And don’t let the appearance fool you. The cottage is home to two bedrooms that can comfortably sleep six.
Family-friendly and with its own free children’s club, Huttopia Southern Maine has over 58 cabins, all well-furnished and equipped with home-like comforts like stovetops, coffee makers and refrigerators. The cabins vary from chic cabins to rustic tents.
Parking is easily available while a coffee shop and laundry facilities ensure you can always find a moment to relax. The nearby freshwater pond and mature forest promise a lot of hiking and exploration for adventurous visitors.
If not, there are plenty of other things to do nearby. The Pine Hollow Little Par Three Golf Course is a mere four minutes away while Mousam Lake, Merriland Farms Golf Course and Old Marsh Country Club are about 20 minutes away.
Recent Review: “We were pleasantly surprised by Huttopia. Tents are clean, staff is incredibly nice. We were out in tent #34 which is only a 5 minute walk to the lodge but it’s the furthest edge of the property and a bit isolated. If you prefer that, then I recommend this tent since it faces the woods and it’s very private. If you can book early to get a waterfront tent or house (more money) do it. There is a pond and pool which are both well maintained. In the lodge is a bar and light fare. Menu is limited but what they make is done quite well. Do yourself a favor and do NOT book on Expedia, book directly with the property since the price will be better. We found the property via Condé Nast and it suggested booking on Expedia. Highly recommend Huttopia. You will not be disappointed.“

Designed to offer an authentic retreat within nature, Terramor Outdoor Resort perfectly captures the romance of camping while ensuring guests don’t miss out on modern comforts. Hike and explore off the beaten path but you can always count on coming back to your own luxurious space with a comfortable bed.
