5 Best Getaway and Glamping Destinations near Saskatoon

If you’re looking for a way to “get away” near Saskatoon but want something more than just a standard hotel room, you’ll want to consider these glamping, resort, and luxury locations.

If glamping is new to you, it includes all of the luxuries you want in a stay but in a unique (and often cozy way) to experience a destination. Resorts add an extra level to your holiday. This means you don’t have to leave the resort to enjoy additional amenities and activities in that location.

Here are five of my favourite spots for a getaway in and around Saskatoon.

5 Best Glamping Destinations near Saskatoon

1. Dakota Dunes Resort

Only 20 minutes south of downtown Saskatoon on Chief Whitecap Trail Highway 219, Dakota Dunes Resort is Saskatoon’s first and only full-service resort. It’s home to a 155-room hotel with a top-floor pool and fitness room. The Moose Woods Fire Grill offers farm-to-table dining with rich prairie flavours.

Tip: The dusted pickerel cheeks and creamy wild boar pasta are a top choice.

The resort also offers e-bike rentals to easily explore the nearby dunes. They’re home to one of the province’s top-ranked 18-hole public golf courses. Next door is an 85,000-square-foot casino for entertainment in the evening.

But most importantly, this resort is located on the historical Whitecap Dakota First Nation lands within the South Saskatchewan River Valley Basin. There are numerous adventures and programs offered to provide educational and enlightening experiences. You can build a traditional Dakota teepee and learn about popular Indigenous Games played on the northern plains. Afterwards, you’ll be treated to traditional bannock and tea.

Book a room here.

2. Tasta Airstream

Tasta Airstream takes staying in a vintage camper to the next level. The Dale is located on five acres of land south of Saskatoon in the hamlet of Furdale. It makes for the perfect getaway from the city – or a great getaway to the city.

On arrival, you’ll find a complimentary bottle of wine, homemade sourdough bread and a s’mores kit to cook on the outdoor propane fire pit. There’s an option to include locally sourced ingredients from local shops. You can prepare a delicious meal grille to enjoy al fresco on the wooden patio underneath strings of twinkle lights.

Every detail is looked after during your stay and it’s truly a luxurious glamping getaway.

3. Alive Sky Lodge

Ever thought of staying in a converted grain bin? Alive Sky Lodge is a prairie gem here in the province only 10 minutes south of Rosetown (just over an hour west of Saskatoon). It’s the ultimate for a Saskatchewan-esque glamping experience.

I’ve written before on the four-season luxury grain bin accommodation complete with chandeliers, outdoor hot tub, fire pit and (two!) fireplaces as well as a Canadian Maple queen-size bed.

But owner April Anderson has levelled it up with their two-story, lofted Boho Bin – complete with a top-floor balcony. The interior takes on a maximalist approach with splashes of bold colours and patterns to make a cozy getaway.

I’ve also stayed in their rustic Schoolee in the Coulee, a converted school bus. It’s tucked away on the edge of their farmyard near a small pond. It has an outdoor shower, firepit and wallpapered outhouse.

Alive Sky Lodge has a little of something for everyone.

4. Camp Wolf Willow

Wine and glamping? Yes, please! Camp Wolf Willow is perched along the South Saskatchewan River an hour south of Saskatoon close to the community of Outlook. The campground and solar-powered glamping resort have a variety of sites to stay at including wooden tents, luxury canvas tents, and camping sites where you’re welcome to pitch your own tent.

There are kilometres of hiking and biking trails and miles of shoreline to explore. Plus, the onsite winery and restaurant make it an ideal all-in-one location for a getaway. The menu has quirky “survival food” items like smokey popcorn, campfire chips and salsa, and locally grown and sourced meat for the hot dogs including international flavours like The Fuji and The Jeju.

The best is experiencing a big-sky sunset from the deck of one of their glamping sites.

5. The James Hotel

While Saskatoon has many excellent hotels to choose from, The James Hotel offers an intimate luxury experience with beautiful views over the South Saskatchewan River and the downtown neighbourhood in Saskatoon. Their bedroom suites come equipped with a five-seat sofa, a writing desk, a Carrera marble spa-inspired bath, and a sliding-door accessible balcony to enjoy the sights and sounds of the city. Their sheets are ultra-luxurious and so popular with guests you can buy a set when your stay is over.

They offer an included breakfast in the morning and have a chef on-hand to craft your eggs in any style you wish.

Their lobby bar is also considered one of the top 50 of Canada’s best bars.
