Cherry Wood Bed, Breakfast and Barn
Californian oenophiles might get sideways, but Washington wine lovers get saddled. Horseback winery tours of the sun-soaked Yakima Valley are but one of the many adventures on offer at Cherry Wood Bed Breakfast and Barn. Snuggled smack in the middle of Yakima’s wine country, this working ranch’s luxe 20-foot-tall teepees offer a delightful home base from which to explore the nearby Zillah, Yakima, Red Mountain, and Prosser wine communities. Decked out with rustic carved-wood furniture, down comforters, and private bathrooms, the teepees hardly qualify as roughing it—something greenhorns will appreciate after a few hours in the saddle. Our advice? Soak away any saddle soreness in Cherry Wood’s “twilight tubs,” outdoor clawfoot tubs accompanied by bath salts and set beneath a wide open sky. From $225, including breakfast

If hops are your preferred varietal, consider signing up for one of Northwest Rafting’s Brews with Views tours of the Rogue.

Resort at Paws Up
We’ve seen five-star hotels with less polish than the glampsites at Montana’s Resort at Paws Up. Outfitted with en-suite bathrooms dressed in granite with heated floors and jetted tubs, dining pavilions where you can relax in front of massive stone-and-timber fireplaces and savor gourmet grub without having to lift a finger, and a camp butler who’s on call to answer your every whim, these 24 “rustic” retreats would put most Hiltons to shame. Set on a 37,000-acre working cattle ranch near Missoula, Paws Up’s four glamping camps have easy access to the legendary Blackfoot River (inspiration for that little fishing movie starring Brad Pitt), and all the outdoor adventure that goes along with it. From $1,025, including breakfast, lunch, and dinner for two

Far and Away Adventures
Whitewater rafting and fly-fishing on one of the country’s wildest rivers (accessed by prop-plane). Gourmet meals. Campfire serenades. River guides who double as masseuses. Welcome to glamping on the Middle Fork of Idaho’s Salmon River with Far and Away Adventures, a fly-fishing and rafting company that’s been given the nod by the likes of Travel + Leisure, Conde Nast, and The New York Times. The family-owned business has been running and fishing the Middle Fork of the Salmon for 30 years, giving them plenty of time to perfect your adventure itinerary.

Lakedale Resort
This San Juan island retreat’s canvas cabins (225-square-foot, redwood furniture and pillow-top queen bed appointed dens) are available from May–September. But the Friday Harbor resort only offers its Gourmet Glamping weekends three times a year (May 11–13, June 15–17, and September 21–23). In addition to indulging in all Friday Harbor has to offer (hiking, biking, fishing, swimming to name just a few), Gourmet Glampers spend an afternoon with chef Kyle Nicholson, of nearby Bluff Restaurant, learning how to prepare a multi-course feast, which they’ll later eat. Think chile-rubbed pork loin, bavette steak, Vietnamese crepes, and, of course the ultimate s’more: a finger-licking almond financier, ganache and marshmallow mess. $429 for a two-night stay, includes culinary instruction, meal and continental breakfast for two

Storm Creek Outfitters
We’re not sure where the name of Idaho’s No Return Wilderness actually originated from, but a few days of glamping at Storm Creek Outfitters will leave you convinced it has something to do with visitors never wanting to leave. Set amid one of the largest wilderness areas in the lower 48, Storm Creek provides access (and guides!) to the area’s rich fishing, hiking, hunting, and horseback riding opportunities. Rise to the smell of rich coffee and fresh baked bread, go for a post-supper stroll to see the sun set on the Selway River Valley, then retire post-supper (no prep or dishes required) meal to your quilt-covered queen bed. From $250, includes breakfast, lunch and dinner
