Antique Glamping in California

If we got to peek into the current living situation of Phoebe Buffay, I kinda feel like she’d be here. With the brightly colored fixtures and a sign outside that says, “Welcome to the Muffin Mansion,” this is probably the coolest camping experience you will ever have. And for only $65 per night!

1926 Train Caboose in Virginia

Sleeping on a train isn’t usually so much fun, because you’re stuck in a cramped shared space with a bed that’s almost right up against the ceiling. But a full train car all to yourself? Um, yes please.

This Geo Dome just looks happy. So much so that it deserves its own children’s book series. Located in the California desert, this cozy little space is $125 per night AND has an indoor fireplace.

1836 Windmill in the U.K.

OK, so you wouldn’t actually stay inside the windmill. I’d imagine that would cause all kinds of zoning issues. But the windmill is attached to a cozy cottage perfect for a romantic getaway for two.

Hobbit Hut in California

This dream spot has a grass roof, two beds and one bath, is $100 per night, and shares land with an animal sanctuary. There’s even a bob cat that you can pet!

Eiffel Tower Houseboat

Staying on any boat is a good time, but when that boat has a view of the Eiffel Tower, you will probably never settle for on-land living ever again.

Boulder House in Yucca Valley

Did the Flintstones live here? Well, no, but you could totally picture it, am I right? It has a kick-ass pool and hot tub, indoor decor that resembles a chic cave, and it blends right in to the surroundings, just in case you’re on the run for a crime you didn’t commit.

Aussie Igloo By the Sea

There are puh-lenty of reasons to explore Australia, and now you can add another to the list. Igloos don’t really make sense in a warmer climate, which is kinda why this one is so so awesome. It’s $80 per night and includes a loft. SIGN. ME. UP.
