Glamping: Outdoorsy Style in the Hudson Valley

August 3, 2021

Camping has gotten an upgrade in recent years, with a number of glamping options offering the enjoyment of the great outdoors with all the amenities of luxury lodging.  The natural beauty of the Hudson Valley beckons us outside –  so why not take advantage of it while enjoying the best of both worlds: sleeping under the stars and gathering around the campfire without having to lug all the equipment and huddle in a sleeping bag on the hard, uncomfortable ground at the end of the day.  

We’ve rounded up seven of our local glamping favorites for those seeking a rugged staycation with all the modern conveniences: 

GETAWAY HOUSE  |  Catskill New York |  @getawayhouse

Getaway is a popular tiny cabin rental company, created to give people time, space, and permission to take a break from stress, crowds,  technology, and work via tiny cabins nestled in nature just a few hours outside of major cities. The Eastern Catskills location offers easy access to Kaaterskill Falls and chic, simple space with a comfy bed (or bunk beds), a bathroom with a toilet and shower, heat/AC, a kitchenette, mini-refrigerator, a pot and pan, dishes, provisions for purchase, and an outdoor fire pit and seating.

BELLFIRE TIPI  |  Roxbury, NY |  @bellfirefarm

The Bellfire Tipi is often called “magical” and “a fairytale” by its guests, choosing this spot to get away from the hustle and bustle of the day-to-day. Located in a picturesque location in the middle of Bellfire Farm and nestled between a creek, maple trees, and a wildflower field, the Tipi can host up to four people for an unforgettable off-the-grid experience.  Your perfect getaway includes all the amenities you’ll need – enjoy your morning coffee via a gas cooktop and pour over mugs in the morning, relax in the hammock all afternoon and stargaze at night around the central fire pit, complete with firewood.
