Where to Go Glamping in Maine – check out these unique retreats

Maybe you’re an avid camper or maybe you’re just considering dabbling in a natural retreat. Either way, we think we’ve found an ideal location for a romantic escape. And whether or not you’ve wondered where to go glamping in Maine, this retreat is one for your couples bucket list.

What is glamping and why would I do it?

If you’re asking yourself what the heck is glamping, you’re not alone. This marketer made term is simply a rather graceless mashup of “glamorous and camping.” Glamping is what those of us who love nature and hate sleeping on the cold ground with a stick poking your back prefer. This style of pampered camping allows the camper to spend time in a peaceful secluded setting, away from the “evils” of technology. But with glamping, you do so without having to give up the comforts that, for some of us, make life a pleasure.

Kennebunkport’s most unique accommodations

And the reason I’ve chosen Sandy Pines Campground just outside of Kennebunkport, Maine as the glamper’s bucket list destination is because the campgroud’s new, “unique retreats” represent just what the glamper ordered. These six, luxury appointed retreats take camping fantasies to the next level. If you’ve dreamed of sleeping under the stars but fear a cascade of flies trickling into your open mouth, then you’re going to love Sandy Pines Oasis Dome. Or if your couple fantasies embrace a pioneering spirit, you need to book a night in a Conestoga Wagon. Other unique experiences include a decked-out Airstream, Glass House and Shepherd’s Hut. These retreats are all tucked into reasonably secluded campsites overlooking a marsh. They all offer king or queen-sized beds, heating and air conditioning. (And don’t forget to pack your Indian Spice Love Oil!)

In addition to the in-room amenities, the property also includes a heated, saltwater swimming pool and an onsite general store with basics–including wine. The campground staff can also arrange bike and kayak rentals. Glamping in Maine has never seen it so good!

Of course, your Sandy Pines retreat may feel like a secluded getaway. But your glamping site is just a hop, skip and jump from the luxuries of tony Kennebunkport. Here you’ll find sparkling, white beaches, Maine’s hippest restaurants and enough culture to fill you up should your nature getaway make you itch for urban life.
