This wilderness experience just 30 miles from Sandpoint is a play on a bed and breakfast. Each private campsite offers a canvas tent with a fully-equipped camp kitchen, a wood burning stove, wood floors, and a queen-sized bed. At night, you can relax by your own campfire and enjoy a little stargazing. In the mornings, enjoy a homegrown, farm-style breakfast in a solar powered homestead.
River Dance Lodge offers glamping tents nestled near the banks of the Clearwater River. A stay in one of these tents means you’ll find pillow-top beds (king or two twins), wood floors, a wood stove, and an iron-claw bathtub. You can grill up your own meals on the BBQ or head to the lodge for a bite to eat if you’re just not in the mood to cook. If you find yourself in need of a little de-stressing, you can book an in-tent massage with a local masseuse.
These luxury glamping tents feature queen sized beds nestled along Moose Creek. As you listen to the sounds of nature, enjoy a shaded porch with reading chairs, a wood stove, and an outdoor fire pit. If you have a bit of problem unplugging, Wi-fi is available. When you’re ready to emerge from your wilderness oasis, you may want to take a drive to Driggs to check out the GeoTourism Center or the Grand Teton Distillery.

Located in the western foothills of the Teton Mountain Range, Linn Canyon Ranch combines luxurious accommodations with the simple pleasures of nature. When you decide to spend the night in a luxury tent, you’ll sleep on a king or queen sized bed, scurry across carpeted floors, and find tiled bath facilities near the lodge. If you’re feeling a bit adventurous, feel free to check out the trail rides, pack trips, and sunset dinners that are on offer.
These glamping style Geo-domes come fully furnished and offer either a king or queen sized bed, electricity, a mini fridge, heat, and A/C. If you find yourself in need of a spa-cation, be sure to take a dip in the natural alkaline hot springs or book a massage. Or, if you’re looking for a little adventure, rent a kayak or a paddle board and enjoy a fun day out on the river.
Downata Hot Springs offers a taste of the Old West with one of their most popular lodging options, Glamping Wagons. While these Conestoga Wagons were built with authentic dome canvas tops and fully functioning wheels, inside you’ll find all the modern comforts you’ll need such as king size and bunk beds, a mini fridge, microwave, A/C, and heating. Each wagon comes with an outdoor firepit, table, and chairs so you can enjoy cooking out in the fresh air. If cooking isn’t a part of your vacation plans, stop by the dining room or snack bar where you’ll find everything from steak dinners to pizza to milkshakes. Bring along your ATVs and explore the nearby trails or treat yourself to a relaxing soak in one of the hot pools.
