Sounds good to me.

The question isn’t ‘Should I stay?’ but more ‘Which treehouse do I want to stay in?’.
And as if the accommodation wasn’t enough, you can even zip line among the trees on-site, or relax in the lakeside pool!
What guests say: “We stayed in Yoki. Just wow. First off this is not just a treehouse. This is a piece of art. The bathhouse is simple yet incredibly elegant. There is a gorgeous soaking tub, a walk-in shower, and a toilet. The bedroom, living areas, and kitchenette are beautiful. The decor is reminiscent of the late ’50s and ’60s but with a modern touch.”

Skybox Cabins is easily one of my favorite places to go glamping in Texas.
I’m a sucker for cabins and treehouses so as you can imagine, this place is right up my street!
I’m already daydreaming about stargazing from the outdoor netted hammock bed.
Set on fifty acres of native live oaks and a seasonal creek, you’ll find five different cabins, each as beautiful as the last.
They all have their own merits so it’s really difficult to choose a favorite, but just know that if you book a stay here you’ll be getting beautiful interiors, amazing decking, and even better views!
What guests say: “This place is AMAZING. My fiancé and I recently stayed in The Hive and were so blown away from the moment we got there.

But if you don’t fancy sleeping in a trailer don’t worry because they also have safari tents, teepees, and some of my favorite yurts in Texas.
What guests say: “My one-night stay in the Amigo trailer did not disappoint. In fact, it exceeded expectations!

Inside, the treehouse is well-equipped with a full bathroom and a kitchenette with a mini-fridge and microwave, coffee service, and continental breakfast items.

You won’t find many yurts as stylish as those at Green Acres Yurts.
Beautifully designed with handpicked finds, it’s clear to see that a lot of love has gone into the two yurts.
They both comprise a queen-size bed, organic bedding, a writers desk, and lounge area, as well as heaters and air-conditioning.
You’ll also enjoy complimentary coffee, gourmet s’mores, and farm-fresh eggs to get your stay off to a great start!

With jaw-dropping views, enchanted evenings, and magical accommodation, it’s not hard to see why Talula Mesa Tents is one of my all-time favorite places to go glamping in Texas!
Overlooking the north shore of Lake Travis, the fifteen-acre site is home to three large tents and one small tent, all with great views and spread out for privacy.
All the tents are amazing but, of course, my favorite has to be the Grand Aztec tent which has the best lake views!
But don’t worry, they all come complete with paddleboards and kayaks so you can enjoy the lake up-close.
What guests say: “This place is EXCEPTIONAL! It felt like a cozy little cabin feel when I walked in, and then I was immediately transported to a cozy, glam treehouse when I turned the corner to see the giant windows and trees. The site was so quiet and remote – honestly, the best place I’ve ever stayed at!”

If you’re looking for luxury, luxury is exactly what you’ll find at Walden Retreats Tents.
Their 525 square foot air-conditioned safari tents are more like modern homes than tents.
With king-size beds, clawfoot bathtubs, private bathrooms, and handmade textiles, they really haven’t skimped on anything.
However, the real draw of this glamping site is its location.
Walden Retreats is a 96-acre property set along the cliffs of the Pedernales River in the heart of the Texas Hill Country.
As such, the views really are second-to-none!
What guests say: “Walden is such a magical experience. The safari-style tents are super spacious and luxurious. The decor is stunning. The bed is huge and comfortable (Casper bedding) and the claw-foot tub is equipped with the best-smelling Aesop products. The kitchen is fully stocked with super nice tools/supplies. It felt nicer than my own kitchen!”
Price per night: From $242 for 2 people
HoneyTree Farm Treehouses are pretty much the definition of ‘cute’.
From the book nook with reading light (my personal favorite part of the treehouses) to the candle-lit hot tub to the upper deck with stunning hill country and creek views, I couldn’t think of a much better place to unwind.
There’s even more to discover once you get inside too.
Look out for the sumptuous king-size bed, vinyl turntable with Bluetooth speaker, and luxury bathroom.
Basically what I’m saying is that you need to book a stay here pronto!
What guests say: “This is an adorable little getaway spot. Private, secluded, relaxing. The decor is modern and on point. The bed is like sleeping on a cloud. The outdoor bath is wonderful. I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone especially couples looking for a nice romantic getaway.”

With surroundings and views like these, you’re pretty much guaranteed a great time at Safari for the Soul Safari Tent.
Elevated on a platform with spacious decking, lots of seating, and a private hot tub, the safari tent is well-placed to enjoy the views over the six-acre property. Dinner alfresco, anyone?
The 400 square foot air-conditioned and heated luxury safari tent houses an impressive king-size bed, a kitchenette, and a one-of-a-kind outdoor bathroom.
And if you’re keen to see the water up close and personal, the tent comes complete with two complimentary single kayaks.
What guests say: “Photos do this place no justice – the location is stunning and the craftsmanship of the tent structure itself was incredible. Denise and Scott have thought of every detail and truly put the glam in glamping! The huge four poster bed was SO comfortable, and having working AC and fans in the tent made it cool throughout the day.”
16. Yurtopia Yurts

Location: Wimberley, nr Austin
Yurtopia is home to an amazing nine yurts split into two locations: the Remote Hilltop Yurts (that enjoy maximum privacy) and the Riverbluff Community Yurts (that are designed to give that “living well in community” feeling).
So no matter whether you want to feel isolated or connected, Yurtopia has a yurt for you!
All the yurts are fully climate controlled and benefit from a king-size bed and their own private decking with all sorts of helpful amenities.
Top tip: book a Remote Hilltop Yurt if you want the added luxury of your own private hot tub all to yourself!
Because who wants to share, right?
What guests say: “You guys have put an incredible amount of energy and thought into the venture and it shows in all the details. The yurt was so comfortable and the surrounding ‘campground’ so well-appointed that relaxation was guaranteed.

For one of the more unique glamping vacations in Texas, book a stay at Flophouze Shipping Containers.
I mean, how many people can say they’ve slept in a shipping container, after all?
The site is home to an impressive six shipping containers, as well as a Beach House and Farm House for the larger groups among you.
Each container is completely unique with its own style, but they all benefit from the same amazing amenities and great views.
You’ll also get the chance to explore their 12,000 square foot on-site store and curiosity showroom, filled with artifacts and antiques galore!
What guests say: “We love the property! The shipping containers are amazing and comfortable, and Matt’s attention to detail is evident everywhere – the decor, the turntable, Topo Chico and Mexican Coke, and the best in-room coffee I’ve had anywhere.”

If you want to get closer to nature (but in style!), Mystic Quarry Tipis might just be your new favorite place to go glamping in Texas.
Mystic Quarry is home to five tipis, followed by a further three safari tents.
Their tipis are inspired by the Native American people of the Great Plain, and despite them being luxurious, they allow you to travel back in time.
There’s also plenty to do on the resort, including a large pool, hot tub, roof deck for sunset parties, a hike and bike nature trail, multiple courts, a recreation room, and so much more.
Plus, you’re only a shuttle ride away from the Guadalupe!
What guests say: “Wow, I can’t say enough great things about this place! This is definitely a destination that has it all. From the minute we checked in the staff was wonderful, $1 beers (who can argue with that), and the accommodation was so clean and fun. They have a fun outside area with yard games, hammocks and to top it off there was live music as well.”
Price per night: From $279 for 2 people or $389 for 4 people
Location: Terlingua, nr Big Bend National Park
Basecamp Terlingua is one of the most famous places to go glamping in Texas – and for good reason!
They are perhaps most well-known for their bubbles alongside their tipis, casitas, retro trailers, and lotus tents.
These iconic bubbles really offer a one-of-a-kind experience. I mean, what other accommodation allows you to best soak up panoramic views of Big Bend?
But don’t just stay here for the views! The bubbles also benefit from air conditioning and heating, Wi-Fi, an indoor shower and toilet, a Keurig coffee maker, a mini-fridge, and an outdoor seating area with a private fire pit.
Oh, and some even have a private hot tub and heated pool! Talk about luxury.
What guests say: “First of all the cleanliness, amenities and comfort were outstanding. The chairs by the fire pit were a great place to unwind. The view of the night sky from inside the bubble was breathtaking, it gives you a feeling of floating in space… You truly do not want to fall asleep, it is SPECTACULAR!”

Moving from one unique property to another, the absolute masterpiece that is Air Castle Treehouse has to be seen to be believed.
Unlike anything you’ve ever seen before, the treehouse was made from four shipping containers and comprises a whopping two bedrooms and five balconies.
My favorite of those balconies has to be the third floor screened porch where you’ll find your private hot tub!
That is closely followed by the sixth-floor crow’s nest that sits fifty feet in the air, where you can swing in a hammock to your heart’s content.
What guests say: “Steve and Nancy clearly know the Divine. This space they have created is nothing short of magic and a connection to the Creator. It was transcendental. Peaceful. Awe-Inspiring. The PERFECT retreat from busy city life. Every detail has been deeply well thought out.”
Location: Seguin, nr San Antonio
Geronimo Creek Retreat is less accommodation and more experience.
You have Getaway Cabins, Treehouses, and Teepees to choose from, each as beautiful as the last, but the real reason you stay here is for the site itself.
The creek is a spring-fed, swimming, and fishing oasis, where you can paddleboard, kayak, rope swing, and swim to your heart’s content.
This place will turn you into a kid again in the best way possible!
The common area also benefits from a large TV, ping pong table, foosball table, and hot tub, so there’s no chance of anyone getting bored here.
Bring on the ultimate summer camp!
What guests say: “This was the best family/friends vacation we’ve ever had. Not a single complaint from any of us about the rooms. They were all very clean, cool, and well-appointed with all the supplies we needed. Very boutique style. The creek was perfect. I thought they may have photo-shopped the water color online but they did not! It’s that pretty.”

The Cedars Ranch Yurt is one of the most spacious yurts I’ve ever seen, so it’s no surprise that it’s earned its place on this list of the best glamping spots in Texas.
Nestled among twenty acres of secluded live oak and cedar trees, the yurt is an ideal retreat for couples or small families.
The yurt is beautifully appointed with all the modern amenities you’d expect from a holiday home so you’ll be left wanting for nothing.
Some personal highlights include the full bath with a luxurious slipper tub, the restful library area, and the spacious decking outside.
What guests say: “The eco-yurt was really lovely – the pictures didn’t do it justice! Marilyn greeted us with cookies, low-carb muffins (after asking about dietary restrictions), and a bottle of wine. The place was comfortable even in the scorching Texas summer, and we enjoyed several meals out on the deck watching the hummingbirds.”

Yep, that’s right, Texas is home to not one but two bubble domes for you to enjoy the night skies from.
This time we have Hozhoni on the Hill Stardome Suite, a unique bubble that’s perfectly perched 101 feet over Horseshoe Bay to enjoy some of the best views of any glamping site in Texas.
Its huge private deck not only enjoys incredible views but also an outdoor star-soaking tub.
The ultimate stargazing spot? Definitely!
However, if the Stardome Suite somehow isn’t up your street, the site is also home to a few safari tents too.
What guests say: “Beautiful luxury camping experience. The views of the Austin hills and Horseshoe Creek are spectacular. They thought of everything from snacks to board games, wine, and even Alexa for some tunes or weather forecast. I definitely would recommend Hozhoni on the Hill to anyone that loves nature up-close and personal.”

Inspired by a life-changing journey to Africa, Sinya Safari Tent effortlessly brings a slice of Africa to Texas.
This is easily one of my favorite places to go glamping in Texas purely for how much it transports you out of the States.
I mean, Texas is great and all but if you could choose a vacation to Africa, I bet you would!
The tent is filled with all kinds of luxuries, from a king-size bed and a century-old clawfoot bathtub to thick, Turkish cotton towels and comfy spa bathrobes.
And luckily for you, the outside is just as, if not more, amazing with unparalleled views that you can enjoy from your private hot tub!
What guests say: “It is impossible to describe in words how incredible this place is. There’s nothing quite like falling asleep to the sound and feel of the outdoors while sleeping in five-star accommodation. Or taking an afternoon nap on a hammock while birds are chirping around you. Or taking an outdoor shower underneath the stars and candlelight.”
Location: Walhalla, nr La Grange
I don’t think any words will ever come close to doing Rancho Pillow justice.
This colorful twenty-acre ranch is eclectic, wonderful, and unlike anything you’ve ever seen before!
Whether it’s an air-conditioned teepee (yes, that’s apparently a thing) or a tin-roofed “Love Shack” casita, the glamping offerings are nothing short of quirky either.
From a heated saltwater wading pool to a treehouse for the little ones to the beautiful Bathhouse, there’s so much to discover in this whimsical wonderland.
What guests say: “Staying at Rancho Pillow is an event. The grounds are artistic and well kept with lovely views and humor thrown in. We stayed in the TeePee which was on my bucket list.

Booking a stay at Savannah’s Meadow Treehouses may well feel like winning the lottery because it’s always booked up years in advance.
But this only goes to show just how special a stay here is.
There are two treehouses to choose from, both of which are simple yet cozy, with amazing views to match.
Both treehouses are fully equipped with everything you could possibly need for a self-catering break so you’ll feel right at home straight away.
However, if you want to make your vacation extra special, make sure you book a stay in Majestic Oak for your own private hot tub!
What guests say: “If I could, I would give this beautiful place more than five stars. It exceeded our expectations. Ron and Susan are such wonderful hosts and took the time to show us around the place. Pictures do not do it justice. We will definitely be back.”

Nestled in the outskirts of Austin, The Reserve at Green Leaf is just close enough for an urban adventure but far enough away for a relaxing rural retreat.
The site is home to four uniquely crafted yurts that are very similar but with subtle differences that set them apart.

All the yurts are set against a stunning backdrop with plenty of natural spaces for you to unwind, such as the fire pit, hot tub, and spots for you to kayak and hike.
What guests say: “Our first yurt stay at The Reserve won’t be our last! Stylish and comfortable, the yurts are a quiet retreat in the woods that far exceed expectations. If you’re looking for a restful getaway, this is it!”

The Belle Plain Caboose Train is easily one of the more unique glamping offerings in Texas
. And it’s also one of the best glamping sites in Texas for incredible views.
Basically, the number of reasons to book a stay here is endless!
The train itself is ridiculously spacious and houses a full kitchen, living room, bedroom, and bathroom, all of which are full of charm and character.
However, I have to say my favorite thing about the train is its back garden and patio that extend all the way to the lake fountain.
Take your complimentary bottle of champagne down to the patio and enjoy one of the best sunsets of your life!
What guests say: “If I could give this place ten stars I would, by far the best Airbnb I have ever stayed in. The scenery is beautiful as well as the caboose. It was extremely clean and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. When they tell you the kitchen is stocked they mean it! We spent most of our time fishing and then relaxing.”
29. Ryders Treehouse

However, if you fancy treating yourself to a bit of added luxury, you can opt for a cabin instead of a yurt.
And why shouldn’t you feel like a queen for the night? You deserve it!
What guests say: “The yurt is big and beautifully designed. The A/C worked well, the record player had some great albums, and the map and water were super helpful. The design of the place is really gorgeous. They have a live band playing next to the pool and it was a dream!”

This romantic lakeside retreat is home to an array of different accommodation options that you and your partner will love!
Living Waters has two glamping tents, three eco-cabins, and a larger main house for those who aren’t ready to give glamping a go yet.
I can’t decide whether my favorite of the lot is Romantic Red or The Loft.
The former benefits from a detached master bath with a private wine deck, while the latter is a seriously funky space with a mezzanine level.
But no matter which one you go for, they all enjoy private access to a gorgeous lake with an air-conditioned floating cabin.
What guests say: “From the moment we stepped onto the property, my partner and I both felt so calm and welcomed by the land. There were so many funky and beautiful things to take in…the design of the cabins, main house, curving wall, trees, and deer – did I mention that beautiful lake? We enjoyed waking up in the morning and taking a cup of tea down to the lake.”

If The Extraordinary Treehouse‘s interior somehow doesn’t make you go a little weak at the knees, I’m not sure we can be friends.
It certainly lives up to the word ‘extraordinary’ in its name!
This exquisite home has been lovingly handcrafted into a total oasis and escape from the world.
Even accessing the property is magical, as you have to walk through a forested canopy to even get to the footbridge that leads you to the treehouse.
Words will never do this treehouse justice, so please look at the photos yourself and get ready to fall in love!
What guests say: “What a perfect getaway. The home was just as pictured and completely blew away our expectations. This is an extraordinary retreat. Such a special and unique place that I will cherish the memories of for years to come. Truly felt like a five-star hotel experience but better.”

The grounds were lovely, the beds were super comfortable and the stargazing was fantastic.”

Son’s Island is one of those places that you visit for the experience, rather than the accommodation.
Admittedly, their tents are just pre-erected tents with proper beds, but when there’s so much to see and do on-site, you won’t be concerned about where you’re resting your head that night.
To access this private tropical hideaway, you drive across a 100-foot wooden bridge.
And once you’re safely on the island, you can go kayaking, paddle boarding, swimming, fishing, and so much more.
Or maybe you just want to relax! In which case, rent out a lakeside cabana for the day and spend your day barbequing and relaxing in a hammock.
Talk about idyllic!
What guests say: “My experience was beyond expectation. From check-in to check-out, everything was in order. The facility is complete with everything that we could do to enjoy a full day… the furnished cabana with ceiling fan and electrical hook-ups, picnic table with benches, grill, a nice size tent.”

Tipis on the Guadalupe is easily one of my favorite glamping spots in Texas.
When you think of tipis, you may think of something quite small, but these impressively large tipis sleep up to six guests across three cozy queen beds.
Each unit is furnished with Aztec touches throughout to add authenticity, and they all benefit from air-conditioning, heating, Wi-Fi, and a Smart TV.
And as if that wasn’t already enough, each unit also comes with its own private bath for you to enjoy throughout your stay!
What guests say: “This place is amazing! We had so much fun. The tipis are way bigger than you would imagine, they were clean, and the beds were comfortable. The bathrooms were immaculate. The river is a short distance walk down, it was a great area. My kids loved the treehouse, it had games, etc.”

Comfort’s the name and comfort’s the game at Camp Comfort, one of my all-time favorite places to go glamping in Texas.
Built all the way back in 1860, this historic bowling alley has been lovingly converted into a boutique bed and breakfast for you to enjoy today!
However, if you want to go glamping, you’ll have to book a stay in one of their bright and beautiful freestanding cabins.
Or if you want to take glamping to the next level, you can opt instead for a stay in their sleek, silver 22′ airstream!
Either way, I can guarantee you won’t be able to get enough of their interiors.
What guests say: “We had a magical experience. We met couples and families, roasted smores, lounged in the amazing air-jet bathtubs, explored the beautiful trees and creek, and slept like babies. There’s a large Social Hall if you need to do early morning work/yoga without waking up the rest of the family.”
Price per night: From $85 for 2 people

For one of the more budget-friendly glamping vacations in Texas, book a stay in Comanche Glamping Tent.
With prices starting from just $42.50 a night each, staying here really is a no-brainer, not least because the tent and surroundings are beautiful too.
Outside the tent, you’ll find your own BBQ, picnic table, and access to the community kitchen, bathhouse, and laundry facilities.
And slightly further afield (1.5 miles to be exact), you’ll find yourself in Pedernales Falls State Park.
Get ready for some great views!
What guests say: “This is the most incredible getaway I’ve found so far in the hill country. The glamping tents look and feel like a five-star hotel. Very comfortable, lots of beautiful touches, your own campfire and picnic area outside.”
Price per night: From $199 for 2 people
Jumping Goat Ranch Treehouse may not look like your traditional treehouse but once you take a good look at it, I can guarantee you’ll be dying to book a stay here.
Not only is the interior beautifully done but it’s also filled with all sorts of luxuries, including a king-size bed, a fully-fitted kitchenette, and a modern bathroom.
And that’s before mentioning the spacious decking with your own private hot tub!
Get ready for long hot tub dips enjoying spectacular Hill Country views.
What guests say: “This was a beautiful home. It was quaint but had pretty much everything we would want. The views were spectacular, and it felt like our own little world. The best part: waking up to find cows right outside the door! Definitely not an experience you get inside the city.”
Price per night: From $91 for 5 people
Location: Marathon, nr Big Bend National Park
The Goat Shed Earth House has to be one of my favorite places to go glamping in Texas purely for how unique it is.
This colorful, eclectic artistic structure provides the perfect opportunity for you to destress and unwind from modern life.
The only thing you’ll have to worry about is what book out of their enormous collection you’ll want to dig into first.
The property is made from papercrete and other recycled materials and comprises a bedroom, living room, roof deck, an outdoor chiminea, and a separate outdoor kitchenette and bathroom.
What guests say: “This enchantingly quirky place captured us from the moment we set foot on the property. The hosts were friendly and welcoming, and every corner contained a delightful surprise – a view of the sunset from the roof, an old bound volume of Oscar Wilde on the shelves, an unusual tchotchke from world travels.”
Price per night: From $198 for 2-4 people
Location: Ennis, nr Dallas
The Range Vintage Trailers look like a little slice of heaven to me.
Spread out over thirty acres, no closer than 100 feet apart, their seven vintage trailer rentals are nothing short of amazing.
They’re all properly kitted out and include a deck with a Weber charcoal grill, propane fire pit, handmade custom table and benches, and a private entrance to their hiking trails.
On-site you’ll also find a pool, a restaurant and bar, a boutique shop, ponds and fishing, and lots of outdoor games!
What guests say: “We loved our stay at The Range this weekend! Very secluded sites with tons of trees, two fishing ponds, and an Airstream bar. Sarah and Paul-the owners are very friendly and go out of their way to make you feel welcome.”
Location: Port Aransas, Corpus Christi
Calling all beach bums! Just a stone’s throw from the beach, this might just be one of the best glamping sites in Texas for you.
The simple Camp Coyoacan allows you to experience a camping trip with just a few luxurious touches!
Their yurts will get you closer to nature but with the added benefit of a queen-size bed, pillows and linen, air-conditioning, electrical outlets, and a desk and chairs.
On-site there’s also a pool and an elevated deck that provides spectacular views and breezes of the ocean and Port Aransas!
What guests say: “The yurt was extremely comfortable and clean and the amenities were fantastic. It’s in a fantastic location and very close to the beach. The bathrooms are shared but you would not have known this as they were so clean! I loved the platform and we got a beautiful view of the sunset.”
Price per night: From $125 for 2 people

Butterfly Creek is home to three beautiful safari tents, each furnished with a plush, queen-size bed.
At the front of your tent, you’ll find a deck where you can enjoy a fresh cup of hot coffee in the morning, and at the back of your tent, you’ll find a private en-suite bathroom.
And if you want to make your stay extra special, you can pay an additional fee for a breakfast package delivered directly to your tent.
Think fruit, scones, muffins, cake, biscuits, and cookies galore!
What guests say: “Nice getaway spot. Owners are very friendly. Best blueberry muffin I have ever had!”

And that bang comes in the form of The Nautical Treehouse.
Sitting in a canopy of trees eight feet off the ground, the one-room treehouse is the perfect getaway for couples looking to escape from the hustle and bustle of modern life.
The aptly named treehouse features seafaring decor that will help calm you with their tranquil palette of turquoise, navy, and ocean blue accents.
It also has a charming porch with a BBQ, deck chairs, and a swing just below!
What guests say: “The Nautical House had everything we needed – pots, pans, TV, Wi-Fi, etc. The bathroom, bedroom, and kitchen areas were clean. The big, bright windows left us feeling as though we were sitting up in the trees! There’s also a communal area with a shaded picnic table and a beautiful fire pit perfect for s’mores.”
