The Best Places To Go Glamping In Montana

1. Collective Retreats

In the Moonlight Basin in Big Sky, Montana, and only an hour from Yellowstone National Park and a few miles from the Gallatin River, this retreat is surrounded by pristine trails and jaw-dropping panoramic views.

The tents are the ultimate form of luxury with wooden floors, electricity, antler chandeliers, 1,500-thread-count Egyptian cotton linens, Turkish hotel spas, ensuite private bathrooms (with L’Occitane bath products), and even a gourmet French-press coffee bar. The ultimate luxury glamping escape!

2. The Ranch at Rock Creek

This five-star guest ranch is in southwestern Montana near the historic mining town of Philipsburg. You can choose from a gorgeous lodge or one of their several large canvas tents that are perfect for couples and families alike. All tents have a private bathroom, top-notch bedding, two gas stoves, a screened porch, and a private deck.

The ranch provides an endless amount of activities from Horseback Riding, Fly Fishing, Shooting Sports, Meditation/Yoga to a Ropes Course. They also provide some traditional frontier experiences such as Frontier Skills, Respite on Rock Creek, Silver Dollar Saloon, Sapphire Mining, Wildlife Viewing, and a Ride Along with a Rancher.

3. Treehouse Retreat – Columbia Falls

Perched high in the trees surrounded by the breathtaking landscape of the Glacier National Park and stone’s throw away from Whitefish Mountain Ski Resort. This place is ideal for any time of the year but is especially stunning in winter.

The treehouse grand entrance is a spiral staircase custom crafted around a giant Douglas fir tree. The master suite loft has a queen Tempur-pedic mattress leading out to the 2nd story treehouse deck through a sliding glass door for the most relaxing space to enjoy a glass of wine or cup of coffee overlooking your private wooded setting.

4. The Resort at Paws Up

This site is located on Montana’s Blackfoot River. For movie buffs out there, this is the setting of the Robert Redford-directed film—A River Runs Through It.  The resort features six camps with safari-style luxury tents that cater to families, couples, and groups.

Each of their 30 tents comes with its own camp butler, indoor plumbing, air conditioning, and heated blankets when it’s chilly. Their three-bedroom tents measure 1,220 square feet, can sleep six guests, and have two bathrooms; these are some of the largest tents in the world!

5. Yurt – Saint Regis

This Yurt brings you closer to nature without giving up on comfort. A skylight above the lower bed allows glimpses of the night sky above – if you’re lucky you’ll spot some great highlights of the Milky Way.

Explore the local hiking spots by day and come back to the yurt in the evening and cozy up to the indoor fireplace.

6. Sheepherder’s Wagon- Belgrade

Sheepherders once lived in this antique wagon so it’s fitting that the wagon still resides on an old historic farm. Sheep are even grazing in the surrounding fields.

Keep in mind that sheepherders are traditionally short people. Although the bed length is a normal bed, there is no overhang on either end! For animal lovers the farm has chickens, pigs, goats, turkeys, honey bees, beef cows, a llama, and a mini mule!

7. Stillwater Getaway

For the adventurous type, this property is ideal. It’s at Stillwater Lake, which is beloved for kayaking and paddleboarding, and the canvas tent sits within view of the sparkling water.

Each of the three wall tents comes with wood-burning stoves, LED lights and lanterns, comfortable beds, and seating areas. The location has the charm of a traditional childhood summer camp but all the amenities you want as an adult.
