You’ve seen the photos, possibly even stayed in one at a glamping resort, but imagine owning your own glamping pod. Your own slice of outdoor luxury is conveniently located in your backyard.

Look no further than these amazing and cute glamping pods. They range from simple and portable, to extremely luxurious and expensive. The options of course are endless, but here are a few pods to get ideas rolling around in your head.

This is probably what you have in mind when you think of glamping.

It’s a classic when it comes to glamping pods.

The Sandstone Star Bell Tent is a combination of teepee/yurt style canvas tent with a large single entrance and can sleep up to 6. The breathable lightweight canvas with the large opening and four mesh-zipped windows allows for plenty of airflows to keep you cool.

While it is lightweight, don’t be concerned with its durability. It has a 35mm diameter center pole with 5mm guy ropes, and heavy-duty stakes to keep it secured. The material and zippers are also heavy duty so this bell tent will last.

This beauty will give you the look and feel of a cozy log cabin.

It’s definitely one of the more robust glamping pods you can find.

The Pemberton by Modulog can sleep up to five and has a standalone bedroom and shower room, just in case you didn’t think glamping could get any more comfortable.

Made with real, solid wood and packed with elegant design features, this pod comes with glazed french doors and an outdoor covered deck area.

This cabin is fairly large at around 21′ by 17′, bringing it to a decent 357sqft of space.

Durability, space, and comfort is what you get with the Denali Yurt.

This event-style tent comes with a diameter of over 26′, 540sqft, and claims you can fit up to 50 people in there. Although I don’t think that would be a comfortable amount of people.

Extremely durable, the Denali is rated for up to 63mph winds! Not quite hurricane strength but really, really good for a yurt. It is made of four layers to keep the elements on the outside where they belong.

Lotus Belle Outback Tent

Whether a family outing or a couple’s retreat, with this tent you can fit either four twin-sized beds or a king-sized bed, whichever you prefer.

With comfort and relaxation at the forefront of the design, the Outback includes a zippable mesh open-air door and windows to keep the pests at bay during your stay. There is an additional vent in the back as well as enlarged vents in the roof to keep cool air throughout.
