Pennsylvania may be known for big cities like Pittsburgh and Philadelphia, but its oft-overlooked nature and rolling farmlands are well-worth a few days of exploration.

Ranging from incredible rock formations to verdant forests and expansive working farms, there are plenty of under-the-radar places to see in the state. And while there’s much on land, you may also want to spend time on the lakes and beaches to get up close and personal with some of the state’s native marine life. Hop in a kayak or canoe and glide across the waters, keeping eyes peeled for herons and otters splashing along the shore.

After a full day in the sun, what better way to end the day than slumbering in a Pennsylvania glamping rental? Sleep in the treetops and breathe in the fresh morning air, all while enjoying amenities a bit more posh than those offered at your average campsite.

From lux safari tents tucked away in a wildflower meadow to a cozy tiny home set on lush farmland to an epic treehouse nestled up amongst the tallest branches, you’ll likely want to move into one of these treetop glamping spots permanently.

Here are some incredibly dreamy glamping spots across Pennsylvania you can book right now.

You’ll get access to a stocked outdoor kitchen for your use with everything from a small refrigerator and electric stove to all the fixings for coffee. In the evenings, unwind in the outdoor clawfoot tub, perched on the edge of the property, to maximize the incredible surrounding mountain views.

Why you should stay: A trendy home in the Conewago Mountains

  • Nearest town: Wellsville
  • Sleeps: 2
  • Minimum stay: 2 nights
  • Rates from: $158/night

You’ll find this dreamy, bohemian tiny house perched on an outcrop practically made for watching the sunrise over the Conewago Mountains from bed. Parked on a 10-acre property, there is plenty of space to kick back and relax (perhaps in one of freestanding hammock beds?)

If you prefer to explore off-property, Pinchot State Park & Lake is within easy walking distance, where you can test out the complimentary kayaks that come with this Pennsylvania glamping rental. To hit the trails, hop on two wheels in the spring, summer, and fall, or send it down the slopes of nearby Roundtop Mountain Resort when the snow starts flying.

Or perhaps do nothing at all with a book and a bottle of wine. Deer often amble past the fire pit during sunset and all manner of critters may run around the lot during the day.

Why you should stay: Lofted treehouse with a slide big enough for adults.

  • Nearest town: Mill Creek
  • Sleeps: 6
  • Minimum stay: 2 nights
  • Rates from: $154/night

Gather the whole family for this incredible treehouse glamping experience, complete with a squiggly slide for when you need to get out of the house in a hurry. I’s a bit rustic with outdoor port-o-Johns and camp cooking as your only options, but it is one of the best dog-friendly Pennsylvania glamping locations you’ll find (just don’t bring Fluffy on the slide.)

Inside, you’ll find a queen bed with sheets and pillows, a bunk bed (for which you’ll need to being your own linens) and space on the floor to put a few sleeping bags for extra guests – the owners are pretty chill. At the end of the day, cool off in the refreshing outdoor shower, then cozy up in your PJs for a campfire evening of storytelling, chatting, and marshmallow roasting.

Outside, you’ll get a large living area with plenty of seating and a firepit table, plus a separate covered grilling station so you can cook rain or shine. Feel free to spend all your time roaming the surrounding farm, or for a slightly cheesy but super-fun day, consider making a trip up to the Hershey Chocolate factory and Hershey Park.
