Fall is right around the corner and it's the season for glamping! Glamping, also known as, camping but with a little luxury thrown in, is a great way to enjoy the outdoors and the beautiful fall weather. Looking for ways to get your glamp on this fall? Read on for your ultimate guide to glamping.

The Getaway House offers tiny cabins that are tucked away in beautiful natural settings! If you are looking to go glamping, the Getaway House offers accommodations in a variety of locations in the US. Another benefit to using the Getaway House is the ability to unplug. Rest, relax, and rejuvenate yourself this fall! Many of the Getaway House destinations have amazing hiking and biking trails. Be sure to inquire when you book your cabin.

Take your glamping to new heights and consider booking a treehouse hotel for your fall excursion. A unique way to really live in nature and be above it all! While some of the accommodations are a little rougher than others, they all are a fantastic way to reconnect with nature. Many of the treehouse hotels offer biking, hiking, and nature trails. 

After you get your glamping accommodations booked, you need to ensure you have the right gear for your trip. From blankets to stoves and knives your weekend adventure will definitely require some of these supplies. Find out what gear is on hand in your cabin and then go out and buy the rest of the gear you might need to take your glamping to the next level. 

You have your cabin booked, you purchased all your glamping gear - what's next? Get online and do some research of the area you will be staying in. If hiking and biking are your thing, try and find trails in the area. Be sure to print off maps - they can become handy in case you lose your way or phone signal. If hiking and biking sound too physical for you, try and find a relaxing spa or wellness center in the area.

Glamping is a great way to unplug, unwind and reconnect with nature this fall.
