The Best Ways to Glamp in Maine
Why camp in Maine when you can glamp instead? Forget the sleeping bag and pop-up tent; these luxury lodgings are the only way to explore the Pine Tree State in style.
Here are a few of the best ways to get your glamp on this summer in Kennebunkport.
Expect the unexpected with a unique retreat
Sandy Pines Campground offers unforgettable options with their new Unique Retreats. Spend the night in a decked-out Airstream, snuggle in a Shepherd’s Hut, explore the beach forest from a Glass House, stargaze in an Oasis Dome, or kick it old school in a Conestoga Wagon. All of the sites overlook the marsh and come with a king or queen-sized bed, indoor seating, fire pits, heat and air conditioning, lighting, and an outdoor dining area.
Hideaway in a hut
Sandy Pines’ Hideaway Huts are half-wood, half-canvas A-frames on wheels, perfect for the tried and true rustic campers who want to upgrade to the comfort of a full-sized bed. The transom windows are designed for airflow and provide an abundance of natural light. When the sun sets, you can sit back in an Adirondack and enjoy the warm glow of your fire pit. S’mores, anyone?
Camp out in a cottage
The outdoor adventure of camping meets the comfort of a Cape Cod cottage with these adorable havens on wheels. Complete with a king-sized bed, beverage cooler, fire pits, and outdoor seating, the decorative Camp Cottages are designed for two, making this a cozy couple’s escape. Bringing the kids along? You can upgrade to a family cottage, which adds extra square footage and two twin-sized beds.
Think outside the tent
This isn’t the tent you remember from your childhood. The classic glamp experience offers 430 square feet of space with a king-sized bed, seating area and deck, and access to a shared bathhouse. Family options include a smaller tent for the little ones, outfitted with two twin beds. All tents receive bedding and pillows, towels, air conditioning, an indoor mini-fridge and outdoor beverage cooler, a small heater or fan, bath amenities, and fire pits.
At Sandy Pines Campground, you can snag any of these glamping rentals in the camp’s “Serenity Areas,” ideal for rest and relaxation. So, whether you’re stretched out in an Airstream or curled up with a good book in your Camp Cottage, you’re guaranteed to enjoy all the great outdoors has to offer: peace and quiet.
