Our Favorite Unique, Quirky, and Unbeatable Overnights in Missouri

Glamping in Excelsior Springs, Missouri

There are many Missouri glamping options in gorgeous canvas tent throughout the state. One of the most popular is the Bell Glamping Tent in Excelsior Springs, Missouri. The site includes a firepit, luxury linens, and a private bathroom. (Pictured Above)

This spectacular lodging experience is built from a grain bin and located in the heart of wine country. The property is tucked away on a 200-acre farm, just minutes from 9 local wineries, breweries, and an award-winning restaurant. The scenery (and the food) will keep you coming back every year.

The Old Kinderhook Castle is a mansion located in the heart of the Lake of the Ozarks. It’s not hard to channel your inner king or queen during a stay at this castle!

If you are a history buff, a stay at this 1870 stone house just north of historical Ste. Genevieve, Missouri will be a dream come true.

This gorgeous Magical treehouse is located near St. Louis. The Tree House Rental is located on a Farm Retreat with over 70 free-range animals.

 St. Louis Union Station Hotel

Speaking of St. Louis, the Union Station Hotel – an award-winning unique upscale hotel is housed in a former railway terminal. Truly one of a kind experience! (Pictured Above)

Unplug and escape to a mountain cabin with a private hot bub, near Big Cedar.

Want something a little closer to the water? Or on the water? What about this yacht at Lake of the Ozarks? Docked only.

Try a zen escape and a journey of self-discovery at Spa Shiki at Lodge of Four Seasons. It is one of America’s top-ranked spas and has been voted the #1 spa hotel in Missouri for the past two years.

Luxury Osage Getaway

Need to plan a getaway for up to 30 guests? Check out this luxury getaway with a private pool, game room, and glorious view! (pictured above)

Speaking of luxury, this hotel in Kansas City with an outdoor rooftop pool and cabanas, as well as in-room spa services is ultra-hip lodging, especially in warmer months.

Speaking of Kansas City, escape any stressors and step back in time at the Southmoreland on the Plaza. This 1913 Colonial Revival home is now an Urban Inn with 12 stately guest rooms is named after a prominent Kansas Citian such as Russell Stover (chocolatier). The inn’s gourmet barbecue breakfast has twice been featured on The Food Network. (Oh! That breakfast!)

This secluded and luxurious TreeLoft is elevated in the trees on a 120-acre farm leaves nothing to be desired.

If you love fishing (or can appreciate the sport) then head to one of the beautiful retreats at Table Rock Lake. (Pictured Above)

What’s better than a tiny house with an outdoor copper tub and river access? The Tipsy Gypsy in Fredericktown, Missouri offers this and more!

Forget the yurts you’ve tried before – this yurt is located in Forest Holts Summit, Missouri in secluded woods with a huge deck that looks out over the wooded valley. Yes, there is an indoor fireplace, air conditioning, hot water, a toilet, and all the wonders of home.

We also love the vineyard retreat just outside the charming town of Augusta, MO. The private chateau retreat in Missouri wine country is located on 140 acres on a hillside overlooking a 20-acre lake and vineyard.

Love beer? Why not stay in a brewery in Weston, Missouri. To make this stay even better you’re also walking distance to a winery and the famous O’Malley’s Pub.

Missouri is home to a tremendous amount of paranormal activity. The Elms Hotel in Excelsior Springs dates back to the 1880s and is one of the most haunted hotels in Missouri. The hotel offers haunted tours so visitors can decide for themselves if the halls are really haunted.

The Henry glamping tent at Table Rock

Last, but not least, we love the Henry glamping tent in White River Township, Missouri. It’s perfect for anyone looking for an off-the-grid adventure. (Pictured Above)
