As busy professionals who work indoors most of time, summer can be a great time to get in tune with nature–and do so in style. Glamorous camping–or glamping–is especially for people who like the idea of camping, but also want to maintain a certain level of comfort. Here are a few glamping options to go camping without roughing it.

The Treehouse at Moose Meadow Lodge in Waterbury, Vermont is not a typical backyard treehouse; it’s two stories of rustic luxury. The treehouse, constructed out of cedar, pine, maple, and hemlock, is supported by two pine trees. It features a living room, dining room, and a bedroom loft with a queen-sized bed that comfortably sleeps two. Extra people can camp out in the living room, of course. For your comfort, the treehouse offers special design features like a wrap-around balcony, a spiral staircase and 31 windows to appreciate the great outdoors. Rates start at $475 per night.

The Resort at Paws Up in Greenough, Montana has a new Cliffside Camp, which consists of four two-bedroom tent suites (enough room for small families) and two one-bedroom adult-only tent suites (perfect for romantic getaways). Each tent is air conditioned and has a bathroom. Paws Up glampers also get chef-prepared meals and butler services.
The Resort at Paws Up offers several camping options for glamping enthusiasts and novices alike, but if you are unsure of which one to try, the honeymoon tents at Cliffside Camp, the Eagle Cliff and Elk Point tents, have a claw foot tub for two and The Last Best Bed®. They are tempting choices for even the most discerning guests.
There’s a four night minimum to reserve the tents. Rates are approximately $8,493 per couple for a four-night stay in a one-bedroom tent suite, and about $10,957 for all four nights in the two-bedroom tent in August 2016.
Rates include three meals per person, per day, wine and beer with lunch, and dinner, airport transfers, and select activities.
