21 Jun Round Up: Glamping in the Northern Rockies
Let’s face it, camping is not for everyone. But have no fear, glamping season is here. Trade in the sleeping bags, those pads that don’t quite cover the rocks, the time spent setting up the tent, and try one of these more luxurious options:
The Ranch at Rock Creek | Philipsburg, Montana | theranchatrockcreek.com
The ranch’s luxury canvas cabin options include classic, family, and specialty canvas cabins, and even winter glamping. Furnished in a rustic camp style, with luxurious bedding, Western textiles, and antique furniture, each “tent” features spacious, private sleeping quarters with separate living areas, attached bathrooms, and screened-in decks overlooking the creek.
Collective Yellowstone | Moonlight Basin/Big Sky, Montana | collectiveretreats.com
Tucked into the trees around an alpine lake, these tents feature signature furnishings including king-sized beds with down duvets, woodburning stoves, lounge areas, coolers, electricity, and private decks. Private en-suite bathrooms include running hot water. Also enjoy locally sourced meals and a slew of outdoor adventure options.
Paws up Resort | Greenough, Montana | pawsup.com
Choose from a number of different sites, such as the Cliffside Camp overlooking the confluence of the Blackfoot River and Elk Creek. Other sites are on or near the banks of the Blackfoot. Tents come in a variety of sizes, each featuring luxury furnishings, en-suite bathrooms, and air conditioning. Guests can dine in the pavilion while the camp butler prepares a roaring fire for s’mores.
