Montana is jam-packed with massive skies, rushing rivers, rugged mountains, untouched forests, and flowering meadows. In a place like that, who would ever want to stay in a cookie-cutter hotel?
You need a spot that lets you feel at home in nature while making the most of every view. If you want the experience of outdoor living, but don’t want to haul your own tent and rough it, glamping is the answer.
These Montana glamping spots all feature little luxuries for a comfortable stay, and they are all a big step (or a serious leap) above traditional camping.
Glamping Sites Near Glacier National Park
One of the most remote and breathtaking National Parks is Glacier. There's no better way to get in touch with nature than camping within the park.
But if you're looking for more amenities like a hot shower, some wifi and a comfortable bed, then luxury camping might be more suitable.
Glamping in a yurt, treehouse, or tiny cabin is a great way to wake up next to nature without getting too much dirt in your nails.
Listed below are some of our favorite locations nearby the park.
These glamping tents are pretty fantastic, but you’ll hardly notice thanks to the views.

Two tents are available, one with a king-sized bed and the other with a queen. The two tents share a fire pit, outhouse and outdoor kitchen, making this site perfect for a getaway with friends.

Solar panels power all your tech gear, so you never need to be out of touch with the world unless you want to be.
The owners can even bring you fresh eggs from their chicken coop for a yummy breakfast to fuel your day of hiking,
The sister site to the Meadowlark Treehouse which is also on this list is just as fabulous.
Raven’s Nest sits just 100 yards from Meadowlark but features completely different views thanks to a savvy arrangement meant to ensure the privacy of the two treehouses.

The interior is the epitome of cozy luxury and features an upgraded kitchen. There is even a full-sized bathtub, which is perfect for soaking after a day of exploring the five surrounding acres and relaxing on the two decks.

This homey yurt features views of Winninghoff Park and Ice Rink and is a quick two blocks from downtown Philipsburg, which makes it easy to pop into a restaurant or stock up on groceries.
But, there’s no Wi-Fi at the yurt, so it’s easy to feel secluded and apart from the world. There is sleeping for seven, a full kitchen and a few cozy sitting areas, which makes this glamping destination perfect for a family getaway.
Toss dinner on the outdoor grill and enjoy the large deck and yard, or spend a quite evening indoors enjoying something from the board game or DVD collection.
You are likely headed to the Bangtail Mountains to enjoy the outdoors, but The Yurt at Lazy E-nuf Rach will temp you to head inside.
Big families are going to love this spot, because the yurt offers ample space to spread out and enjoy time together. The rustic western furnishings, including sleeping for six, are a throwback to yesteryear.
There’s an indoor kitchenette, but you’ll want to do all your cooking at the outdoor kitchen so that you can enjoy the views of the forest.

Though the surroundings are rustic and wild, this house is anything but.
This tiny one-bedroom house packs every modern amenity you could want, without wasting any space.
Aside from the standard full kitchen and bathroom, you may be surprised to find a gas fireplace and big-screen television. But, who can look at a television when there are so many windows and such stunning views.
Outdoors, there are two large decks, which is where you will undoubtedly spend the bulk of your time.
Perhaps the most unique glamping location on this list is this tiny house build on the back of a vintage stock truck.
The bright turquoise truck pops against the mountain backdrop, but you won’t be able to stop wondering about the logistics of it all. Your stay starts with a 5-minute walk from the parking spot into a secluded area.
There, the truck-turned-cabin features a teeny-weeny kitchenette, a queen bed and an additional sleeping loft. As cute and quirky as the Stockman Tiny House is, it’s the setting that is really spectacular.
Since the cabin is situated on a working ranch, you’ll catch a glimpse of ranch life as well as the wildlife, landscape and sky you came to Montana looking for.
