Don’t get us wrong – we’re absolutely still in summer mode (and plan to be for quite a while longer…) but it’s not a bad idea to look ahead to fall…especially when it comes to making staycation plans. Luckily for Vancouverites, BC is breathtaking in all seasons, and we’ve got a whole lot of options by way of ‘glamping.’

So, if you’re looking toward the season of pumpkin spice lattes and autumn colours, here are some great cabin and yurt options in BC to check out.

Brown’s Bay Resort

Considered one of the Island’s best-kept secrets, the luxury seaside tents at Browns Bay Resort just north of Campbell River offer guests real beds as opposed to sleeping bags, and a living section that opens up to a deck for barbecues. Unwind with some tasty bbq + the ocean breeze, hang out at the marina, or get out on the water. There’s even a floating restaurant with an outdoor patio called The Narrows for a unique dining experience.

Rustic cabin on Galiano Island

As the name implies, this rustic cabin on Galiano Island oozes charm and comfort. Blanketed with lush forests, Galiano Island is the perfect destination for nature lovers seeking a more remote experience. There are tons of beach access points with great swimming holes and breathtaking island views.

The cabin itself is the perfect spot to unwind on a covered porch with a book in hand, or explore winding pebble beach trails if weather permits. If it doesn’t – you can enjoy stunning views from floor-to-ceiling windows and a skylight, accompanied by the sounds of crickets and birds just outside.

Nestled in the trees on a beautiful 3-acre property is the Woodland Cabins – a micro-resort perfect for large groups. Think luxury hotel meets small town recreational fun. This spot is located right on White Lake (AKA one of the most pristine lakes in BC) in the heart of the Shuswap Lake Regions, offering a ton of lake day fun and relaxation.

The Grand Fir Upper Suite sleeps up to 10 (6 adults + kids), and features cathedral-esque ceilings, giant windows, a bbq and firepit, and hot tub access. In terms of glamping in BC, this is as glamourous as it gets. You can view all the cabins–large and small–and their availabilities here.

Cozy Chilliwack retreat

If you’re looking for a peaceful place to kick off the fall season (or enjoy the remainder of summer), rejuvenate by the river at this cozy A-frame in Chilliwack River Valley. It’s not only by the riverside – but it’s also surrounded by mountains and lush forest with plenty of hiking trails to explore.

The retreat has a space heater and heated blankets to cozy up in if there’s a chill in the air, but the hosts still recommend you bring warm layers during the colder months.

Situated in the mountains above Naramata Bench and Okanagan Provincial Park, Chute Lake Lodge offers guests canvas “glam tents” and yurts to make your grand escape from the city. Work up an appetite by paddling on the lake or biking the KVR trail, and then cozy up for some s’mores, or enjoy a buddha bowl at the lodge restaurant.

Mountain View ‘Bunkies’

If you are looking for affordable accommodation that’s close to 5 National Parks, then this one’s for you. The Mountain View Cabins have a variety of offerings depending on your budget/accommodation preferences – but we think their ‘bunkies’ are giving the most ‘glamping’ energy.

Think tiny rustic cabins with one set of bunk beds each. Perfect for a weekend getaway to the BC Rockies for two! The rooms come with a candle lantern, a 5-gallon water tank, and a wash basin. Guests also have full access to their regular communal facilities, including an outdoor kitchen with dishes, 2 BBQs, and a fire pit.

Oceanfront Yurt on Salt Spring Island

Waterfront views, patio sunsets, fresh farm eggs, floor-to-ceiling windows – the Trincomali Yurt on Salt Spring Island is definitely one of the most unique stays we’ve found on Airbnb recently. Bring a little taste of summer with you into fall with this luxurious oceanfront stay.

This one might be our pick for couples looking to make a “romantic getaway.” Think modern, high ceiling beams, a spa-like bathroom, and accents of driftwood and rock that give the space a charming, earthy feel.

And that’s our fall ‘glamping’ roundup, folks! We hope you get out there & discover a cute cabin or two during your next staycation in BC.
