  • Sleeps: 3

Pending traffic, this place to glamp near NYC is actually near NYC — the drive should take no more than 90 minutes.

The yurt’s sides are all fabric in the summer months to get you as close to nature as possible, but in the colder seasons, the thin fabric is replaced with canvas and insulation so you can stay nice and cozy — though the wood-burning stove helps, too. The actual yurt property is small, but there’s hiking in the woods just behind the complex.

Just pull up, unpack and enjoy camp life. The dome’s spacious interior, ample forest views, and loads of natural light are an ideal setting for a glamping getaway near NYC.

Why you should stay: Safari tent at an adults-only glamping resort near a waterfall.

  • Location: Parksville
  • Sleeps: 2
  • Minimum stay: 2 nights
  • Rates from: $175/night

A few caveats: you’ll have a very short walk to the property, there are no showers available, and this glamp spot near NYC is truly disconnected, so expect no Wi-Fi at cell service that’s spotty at best.
