Ahhh, nature. You know? The green stuff and animals. It's big, it's beautiful, it's messy, but it helps us to reconnect with the earth and switch off from the modern stresses of daily life. Although, yes, it is full of bugs, mud, and gross squelchy things, but luckily, there's a way around all the gross bits. Enter: the glasshouse Airbnb. 

These architectural marvels are often secluded and unique, allowing us to experience the outdoors without, you know, being outdoors. So, put away the bug repellent, and add a few nights in a glass Airbnb during your roadtrip across America; it'll be like camping, but better. We suggest a stay in one of the best glasshouse Airbnb’s the USA has to offer. Just don’t go throwing any rocks, ok?

Sleeping under the stars doesn’t get more literal than this. Only here’s the catch: instead of appreciating nature while dealing with a rock or two digging into your collar bone as you lie your sleeping bag down, this unforgettable glasshouse allows you to lose yourself in the spectacle of the night’s sky while cozying up in a rather lovely double bed. Wheel it out onto the patio for the full en plein air experience, or sleep behind the only type of closed door that will still allow you to see the landscape from the comfort of your own pillow.

The views just don't look real, do they? This incredible glasshouse Airbnb in Utah offers breathtaking views of the Zion Mountains and really makes you feel disconnected from the world as we know it. The A-Frame cabin has glass walls to allow uninterrupted views, and a retractable door (think: garage vibes) so you can stay in bed and look straight out into the landscape. You'll have your own private bathroom and a mini-fridge in the studio cabin, plus an outdoor kitchen with propane grill, and basic cooking equipment and ingredients (salt, pepper, oil). A unique take on glamping. It will be hard to leave that view.

This Luxe Airbnb in Colorado is one of the most majestic glasshouses we've ever seen. Considered a mid-century masterpiece by its loyal owners – complete with panoramic views of its own pond and beyond – this gorgeous home can accommodate up to 14 guests across six luxury bedrooms and 8.5 bathrooms – yep, the kids could even take the tub for the night in their new fort. For the main event, this glasshouse features wraparound floor-to-ceiling windows, a fully equipped kitchen with a breakfast bar, wine fridges, wet bars, home theatres, game rooms... You name it, it's got it. What are you waiting for?

This popular rental house is 100 percent off the grid. That means it's powered by solar panels for energy and hot water and there isn't a TV or fast WiFi. Trust us, you won't miss either of those once you see the view. The Airbnb sleeps four people in two bedrooms, so it's a great place for you and your pals to digital-detox and get to know each other better. Or, if you dare, bring your family and see if you can last at least one night without a fight. Stylish and sleek, you'll feel a million bucks staying here.

This glass treehouse is an architectural marvel, with entire glass walls that overlook forests and a swimmable pond. The sleeping loft, accessible via ladder, nestles you right in among the branches. It's super cozy but has everything you need for a comfortable stay. It has an equipped kitchen and plenty of places to cozy up and watch the view with a book. There's also a wood-burning Swedish hot tub.

At more than $1,000-per-night, this Joshua Tree getaway is out of most people's price range, but that doesn't mean we can't admire the view from here. Nestled on an unfenced 3.6 acres in front of a boulder mountain, the property includes a firepit and a saltwater hot tub for an unparalleled stargazing experience. If you can spare the cash, it's well worth it (although you'll probs be stuck eating packet ramen for the foreseeable). Escape the stress and noise of urban life and retreat here, find yourself, and come back a new person.

This award-winning glass house sits on eight secluded acres of forest near Tahoe National Forest. Nestled in the Sierras, the house's glass walls are completely open to the forest and magnificent views of Rollins Lake. The house even has its own private lake trail with canoes for guests. It's also pet-friendly, so bring your pooch with you and you'll both have the time of your lives.

No drywall between you and Mother Nature here. In addition to the views, this glass cabin offers two acres of land to roam including a nearby river with a gorgeous fire pit and seating area next to it. A fancy outdoor shower means you're never without a view, just beware of peeping toms. But, you're more likely to see an animal stroll by than a nosey neighbor.
