9 Luxury ‘Glamping’ Sites for New Yorkers and Their Dogs

A glamping tent with a bed and a bedside table.

The great outdoors aren’t for everyone, or every dog. Mosquito bites, no running water, food from a tin can and the whole complicated bathroom situation can turn off many folks.

And for those wanting to bring their canine sidekicks into the wilderness, some outdoor “adventures” can stress them out, having both the owner and their dog running for the hills, or in this case the nearest hotel. Fortunately, a compromise has emerged: “glamping,” a term defined as glamorous accommodations for those travelers and that want to enjoy the wilderness but in a more comfortable environment. So, basically fancy camping amenities for those that would rather stay in a five-star hotel than sleep under the stars.
