Glamping Getaways: 4 Glam Camping Retreats for Couples

Not a fan of roughing it? Forget pitching a tent. Glamping (glamorous camping) is the way to go. Camp in style with your love at one of these romantic, outdoorsy escapes in Central Florida.

1. Luxe Tent for Two

Located 90 miles south of Orlando on 1,700 acres of breathtaking ranch land, Westgate River Ranch Resort & Rodeo combines cowboy culture with stylish digs. The canvas tents feel more like hotel rooms than tents, with air conditioning, screened porches, king-sized beds and personal concierges. Experience life on the ranch with horseback riding, trail hikes and a weekly championship rodeo. Eat, drink and be merry at the local saloon and restaurant. Rates begin at $265 per night.

2. Floating Bungalow Bliss

Love being on the water but dislike the idea of sleeping on a boat? Spend your nights together in a floating bungalow instead! The Floating Bungalow, whose current home is the Boat Tree Marina in Sanford, takes the concept of a houseboat to a whole new level. The floating home boasts such amenities as a porch with overhead fans, loft bedroom, full kitchen, discount pontoon boat rentals and nearby access to historic Downtown Sanford. Rates begin at $159 per night.

3. Yurt Romance 

A 40-minute drive from Orlando will take you to The Yurt at Danville for a one-of-a-kind romantic weekend getaway. Basic yurts are round, portable canvas tents, but this unique hideaway is fit for a king and queen. Located on a private airstrip at a quaint B&B in Geneva, The Yurt comes equipped with air conditioning, a plush king-sized bed, Wi-Fi, full bathroom and a mini kitchen. Don’t forget to make friends with the two alpacas who live behind the yurt! Rates begin at $66 per night.

4. Treetop Hideaway

You don’t need to leave Orlando for forest treehouse luxury. Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort offers treehouse villas that are the stuff of your childhood dreams. Located along the scenic Sassagoula River, each treehouse is elevated 10 feet off the ground and appointed with beautiful carved wood furnishings. Marvel at the tranquil landscape from your private deck or catch a ride to Disney Springs on the water taxi. Treehouse villas sleep nine adults, so make it a group getaway! Rates begin at $749 per night.
