Regions of Washington State
The Northwest of Washington has the majestic Mt Baker and the Cascade mountains which draw avid hikers and skiers from all over the world.
People love the Olympic Peninsula for its untouched nature, rainforest, rugged coast, surfing, and charming towns. It’s a favorite for Glamping Washington!

Top Washington Glamping Sites
Location: Snohomish, Puget Sound
Best For: Couples, groups (multiple treehouses sleep 2 people each)
Amenities: Queen bed, Flat-screen TV, Fireplace, Terrace
Treehouse Place Deer Ridge Featured Top 10 USA is an easy escape from the city. The treehouses are raised on posts giving the feeling that you’re high in the trees but are actually just a few feet off the ground. Rooms are beautiful with lots of wood and charming details. Some have 4-poster beds and free-standing soaker tubs next to a fireplace and with a pretty view.
Although it feels like you’re in the woods they’re actually just 14 miles from downtown Everett for shops, restaurants and a lovely waterfront. However, if it’s nature you want there is also an abundance of trails, rivers and other outdoor activities.
Location: Orcas Island, Northwest Washington
Best For: Sleeps 4 adults
Amenities: Two Bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen, 3 decks
Part treehouse, part hobbit house this is a fairytale accommodation come to life. The space is divided between 3 buildings on 3 decks joined by bridges and walkways. Cathedral-style windows, a Japanese sunken soaker tub and a tower with a cozy reading nook are just a few of the unique features.
As the name implies you’re surrounded by forest and there are stunning water, woods and mountain views from every angle. If you can tear yourself away there’s plenty to see and do on lovely Orcas Island.
Guest Review: “This was our second stay at the Forest House, and it was delightful. The deck view is magnificent; surrounded by towering firs, and Mt. Baker visible in the distance. The kitchen is well appointed, and the architecture and decor of the house is relaxing and charming. With all the woodwork and surrounding forest, it feels like you’re staying inside a giant tree. Can’t wait to return!”
Location: Leavenworth, Eastern Washington
Best For: Everyone (several tiny homes allow for groups to book individually)
Amenities: Community pool, tennis courts, lake, pond and so much more!
Leavenworth is a fabulous year-round destination with tons of indoor and outdoor activities for all ages and The Tiny House Village is a great place to stay. The Village has 5 cozy and colorful tiny homes to choose from: Rudolf, Belle, Adeline, Hanna and Otto.
Each home is unique in size and decor and sleeps from 2 to 5 people. All accommodations include a bathroom, kitchen, living area, linens and kitchenware. On-site activities include boating, swimming and tennis. Nearby are dozens of trails for hiking, biking, skiing and snowmobiling.
Guest Review: “Beautiful views, outside of town, about a 20-25 min drive. Adorable, fun to stay in tiny house. We loved it.”
Location: Greenwater, Southern Washington
Best For: Couple, Small family
Amenities: Queen bedroom, sofa bed, potbelly stove, full bathroom and kitchen, hot tub
An adorable turn of the century Little Red Caboose with absolutely everything you need. The kitchen is complete with plenty of pots, pans and other kitchenware and the shower is big enough for two. Outside there’s also a little deck, a fire pit and a huge hot tub in a cozy cabana.
The caboose is next to Greenwater River and just a few minutes walk to town and the fun and delicious Naches Tavern. Nearby are Mt Ranier National Park and tons of outdoor activities.
Guest Reviews: “Lovely digs for a couple or small family. We so *thoroughly* enjoyed our visit. Tiffen is a crazy-hard-working gracious host. Great care and thought, practicality and aesthetics went into every detail of the Caboose (and the ENORMOUS hot tub!) From the gorgeous double-shower to the well-appointed stocked kitchen (with scores-stuff, spices, oil, etc.) to the gas bbq, the games and alphabetized DVDs — everything was quite perfect.
It’s not easy to find great places to stay near the Sunrise entrance to Tahoma/Rainier — so the Red Caboose was the perfect for setting off to hike daily.
Also, it’s right off the river and dark, so get to enjoy the river’s rushing along with the starry beauty at night (after a dip in the hot tub, of course.) Just hope that those of you reading this will be busy when we want to go up next!”
Location: Leavenworth, Central Washington
Best For: Families, small groups, adventure, unique experience
Amenities: Cave accommodation sleeps 8, kitchen, bathroom, hot tub, fireplace
Yes, this Washington glamping accommodation is built into an actual cave! But throw away any visions of a cold, damp experience because this cave is all comfort.
There are two cozy bedrooms with four beds plus a full bathroom with a heated floor and walk-in shower, a bright kitchen with a 20 ft high ceiling, and a comfy living room with a fireplace. There’s even a cavern hot tub inside to soak in while watching the flickering flames of a second fireplace and tiki torches lining the cave walls.
The C+A+V+E definitely sits high on the list of the most unique glamping in Washington.
Recent guest reviews:
“This place is absolutely awesome. It is so beyond cool and clean and amazing. It definitely gets chilli if you’re there in the winter but making the fire makes it snuggly and warm. We loved it, and are still amazed that we stayed in a Cave that doubled as an insanely cool house.”
“This place is amazing! It is somewhere between camping and hotel living. The hot tub is outstanding and oh so wonderful on those cool nights ( and days). Close to several trails and the river. It is just off Icicle road – so not too isolated.”

Underground Hygge Glamping near Lake Chelan
Location: Orondo, Southern Washington
Best For: Couples, unique experience, seclusion, scenery
Amenities: Hobbit House accommodation, bathroom, fireplace, heating, garden, deck
You don’t have to be a Lord of the Rings fan to appreciate this amazing Hobbit House built into the side of a hill. But if you are a fan you’ll be in heaven.
The Underground Hygge was custom built with incredible attention to authentic detail including round doors and windows looking out onto a spectacular view of the Columbia River Gorge and near Lake Chelan. There’s no kitchen but there is a full bathroom with a two-person tub and a shower.
You’ll have six acres of absolute privacy to hike, play, relax and soak up the stunning scenery and peaceful natural surroundings. However, you don’t even need to leave the queen size bed to enjoy the view since the bedroom has a round door that opens wide. It’s a perfect place for a romantic Washington glamping getaway.
The only downside is that this unique accommodation is incredibly popular so you need to book far in advance!
Recent guest reviews:
“Wow!!! This place is absolutely amazing, the location alone is so beautiful but combined with the authentic Tolkien experience it was perfection. The craftsmanship that has been put in to the Hobbit hole is stunning and we loved playing chess and having a go at some whittling by the fire. We couldn’t quite figure out getting enough hot water for a bath or shower but I’m sure that could just be human error! Definitely use chains or all weather tires to get to the hobbit hole in Winter, the road was very icy, but the snow made the experience all the more beautiful! Would definitely recommend”

You have everything you need with a separate cozy loft bedroom, a full kitchen and living room plus a lovely private tree deck. The separate outhouse is definitely not roughing it and the outdoor 2-person shower is nothing short of heavenly. This one also made our Treehouse Glamping in Washington article.
Recent guest reviews:
“This secluded treehouse in the woods is straight out of a fairytale! We only stayed one night, but it was well worth the visit! I would have liked to stay another night or two to take full advantage of all the amenities offered, and explore the area a bit more. This probably isn’t much of a concern to most people renting a treehouse in the woods, but as a bit of an arachnophobe, I am always on high alert for spiders. I didn’t even see one! So that was a big bonus for me. I also read other reviews about how lovely the outdoor shower space was, yet thought it wouldn’t likely be my cup of tea. I was wrong! It was a very relaxing experience. Our stay at Sir Cedric was brief, but memorable. Thanks Scott!”

“What a lovely space! Julie has thought of everything: beautifully decorated, comfortably furnished, and lots of extras provided. We borrowed maps made available and explored Port Townsend, Sequim, and the Dungeness Spit. Plus, we got to read up and learn about yurts! A perfectly restful way to spend Thanksgiving weekend. Highly recommended :)”
