1. The Barons Wagon

Why you should stay: Live the frontier life with a few extra modern conveniences.

  • Location: Fredericksburg
  • Sleeps: 4
  • Minimum stay: 1 night
  • Rates from: $198/night

It’s like traveling back to the Wild West with a stay in the Barons Wagon. It’s a replica of a Conestoga wagon, which settlers used over a century ago. More spacious than it might seem from the outside, the wagon fits a king-sized and bunk beds, making it a fun place you can bring the kiddos.

Keep in mind when you’re booking that the wagon can’t be insulated, so there’s no AC or heat. But it’s still a comfortable glamping experience with plenty of electrical outlets and your own private bathroom just outside your wagon.

While you can spend hours sharing stories and toasting marshmallows around your private fire pit, you’re just a short drive away from Fredericksburg’s main street, filled with tasting rooms and boutique shops.

Why you should stay: Incredible views paired with plentiful recreation options.

  • Nearest town: Marble Falls
  • Sleeps: 2
  • Minimum stay: 2 nights
  • Rates from: $325/night

Equal parts cabin and tent, the gorgeous Grand Aztec Tent offers amazing Hill Country views from its floor-to-ceiling glass windows that make up the entire back wall. But the front side a lot going for it thanks to a cozy porch perfect for stargazing. There’s air conditioning if you need it, and if things get chilly, you can light up the wood-burning stove.

Aside from what’s in the Grand Aztec Tent, the property has communal amenities like a movie projector with an outdoor screen and a yoga hut positioned perfectly to take in the sunrise. There are also paddleboards and kayaks available for guests, which you can bring a couple of minutes down the road to a public park with lake access. For recreation of a different sort, head down the road to the nearby Flat Creek Estate Winery & Vineyard.

Why you should stay: Get lost in nature at this treehouse escape.

  • Nearest town: Glen Rose
  • Sleeps: 2
  • Minimum stay: 2 nights
  • Rates from: $198/night

You won’t be missing your TV or Wi-Fi when you see the vista at The Birdhouse, an elevated stay tucked in the treetops. From the bedroom balcony, the views seem to go on and on – you’re on 50 acres of private land away from any big cities. This is one of the best places to glamp in Texas for big groups since there are several interesting homes available to rent on the property.

While here, you’re more than welcome to hike around the large property, but Dinosaur Valley State Park is also right next door in case you need even more room to explore. It runs interesting nature and educational programs for kids and adults. On property, keep an eye out for wildlife like wild turkeys, deer, and jackrabbits — and definitely don’t leave without watching a sunrise or sunset.

Why you should stay: Refined accommodations way out in the West Texas desert.

  • Nearest town: Terlingua
  • Sleeps: 2
  • Minimum stay: 2 nights
  • Rates from: $357/night

This bright, beautifully decorated luxury yurt is the place to stay for anyone looking for some peace and quiet, far, far away from city life. Located on a private reserve close to the quirky ghost town of Terlingua, this airbnb offers expansive, unobstructed views of the Chisos Mountains. It also happens to be right next to Big Bend National Park, a great spot for some remote day hiking or stargazing.

While the general area is certainly remote (it’s nearly a two-hour drive to Marfa), you won’t have to fend for yourself whenever you need provisions. There’s a general store nearby plus a couple of local restaurants, including Chili Pepper Cafe. It’s definitely one of the more expensive places to glamp in Texas but it’s one of the few ways to have a luxurious experience near Big Bend National Park.

Why you should stay: Rustic luxury in a safari tent on the Pedernales River.

  • Nearest town: Spicewood
  • Sleeps: 2
  • Minimum stay: 1 night
  • Rates from: $230/night

Safari for the Soul takes the idea of a safari tent and turns up the dial on comfort. You’ll get a private deck with river views and a hammock, a canopy king bed, a hot tub, and air conditioning and heating. There’s also a beautiful outside bathroom where you can continue taking in the views while enjoying the heated shower.

From this location, you can easily fill your day with trips to nearby attractions like Krause Springs, Pace Bend Park, and Cypress Valley zip lining. Briarcliff Marina, where you can rent a boat or jet ski, is also less than 10 minutes away by car. It really feels like the kind of tent you’d stay in on a luxurious African safari, but fortunately, it’s in a cute little town outside Austin, instead.

Why you should stay: Throwback accommodations in the heart of Austin.

Perfect for those who want the fun of glamping without being far from the city, this stay is in a friendly neighborhood in South Austin sandwiched between the popular strips of South Lamar and South Congress. Still craving a bit of nature? Austin’s beloved Green Belt is less than 10 minutes away. It’s also relatively affordable considering it’s close to Austin and beautiful Barton Springs.

Why you should stay: It’s all about rest and relaxation at this well-furnished stay.

  • Nearest town: Wimberley
  • Sleeps: 4
  • Minimum stay: 2 nights
  • Rates from: $190/night

While the outside may seem like an average yurt, the inside of this luxury eco yurt reveals cozy accommodations complete with a fully equipped kitchen, dining area, living area, library space, and an oversized tub. That’s a heck of a lot for a yurt.

Secluded on 20 acres in Texas Hill Country, this stay is a great place to commune with nature. You can hike around the property, hang out on the deck, or cozy up in one of the comfy hanging chairs outside. For more mindful recreation, you’re able to book a wellness coaching session and an in-yurt massage.

The charming town of Wimberley is just 15 minutes away, and if the weather is right, you can’t miss going for a swim at the world-famous Jacob’s Well or hiking around Blue Hole Regional Park.

8. Conestoga Glamping Wagon

Why you should stay: Be part of a wagon train with extra communal facilities.

  • Nearest town: Fredericksburg
  • Sleeps: 4
  • Minimum stay: 2 nights
  • Rates from: $150/night

These days, RVs are all the rage, but for a unique experience why not take things back to frontier times with a stay in a Conestoga glamping wagon? (Apparently, they’re all the rage in Texas!) Except unlike in the days of the Old West, this covered wagon comes with the benefit of air conditioning and heating.

Just like how wagons traveled together in the past, this wagon is one of five on the property, which is an RV resort. That also means a stay here comes with access to other communal facilities, including a pool and jacuzzi, gym, disc golf courses, and volleyball court. It’s one of the best places to glamp in Texas for a small family that wants an affordable stay but still something more special than a roadside hotel. And there’s plenty of space to run around.

Located just outside of Fredericksburg, this airbnb puts you in close proximity to dozens of wineries and vineyards.

9. Yurt in the Trees

Why you should stay: A comfortable getaway just a stone’s throw from wineries, breweries, and distilleries.

  • Nearest town: Dripping Springs
  • Sleeps: 2
  • Minimum stay: 2 nights
  • Rates from: $219/night

Why pick between a tent or a treehouse when you can have a bit of both with this yurt in the trees? Surrounded by live oaks, this stay has a deck overlooking a creek and canyon. From inside, you can still appreciate the views from the clear domed ceiling and through the many screened windows.

Since this yurt is close to the town of Dripping Springs, you’re never too far from a winery, brewery, or distillery. Treaty Oak Distilling and Solaro Estate Winery are two of the closest, and if you drive for less than 10 minutes you can reach more popular spots like Jester King Brewery. While this particular yurt isn’t dog- or kid-friendly, there are other yurts on the Wanderin’ Star Farms that are.

10. The Daisy

Why you should stay: Go retro out in the Hill Country.

  • Nearest town: Wimberley
  • Sleeps: 2
  • Minimum stay: 2 nights
  • Rates from: $135/night

Down the road from Wimbereley’s picturesque Blue Hole Regional Park, The Daisy delivers fun Texas vibes with its kitschy, cowgirl decor. You’ll have a small kitchen and bathroom inside the retro Airstream, but you may want to skip the latter entirely and just use the much cooler private outdoor shower.

There’s certainly no need to stay cooped up inside as you’ll have a deck and hot tub right outside your door. During the day, stretch out in the hammock under the shade of the trees, and at night, make some s’mores by the fire. You can also explore the trails on the property, which lead to different spots like a little treehouse and a creek. You may also want to check out Cave Without a Name, a cool underground cave system not far from downtown.

11. Collective Hill Country

Why you should stay: A chic hotel-style retreat with wellness experiences.

  • Nearest town: Wimberley
  • Sleeps: 4
  • Minimum stay: 1 night
  • Rates from: $409/night

Overlooking a sprawling ranch, the Collective Hill Country delivers a high-end experience by combining stylish tent accommodations with farm-to-table dining and numerous on-site activities. Whether you choose the regular, family suite, or honeymoon suite, you’re guaranteed a luxurious experience.

Here, each morning starts with a complimentary cooked-to-order breakfast. During the day, it may be hard to decide how you want to spend your time with options like horseback riding, sound meditation, and yoga offered daily. In the evening, sit down to enjoy the six-course chef’s tasting menu (if you remembered to book ahead). It’s certainly one of the pricier places to glamp in Texas but it’s a bit of a different experience and a great splurge for a birthday or anniversary.
