I’ve had an obsession with treehouses ever since i was a kid. Partly because we always want something that we can’t have (and we had no trees or money), and partly because who the fuck doesn’t want to have a HOUSE in a TREE?!
Now that i’m an “adult” i still don’t have any trees (or money)… so a treehouse is still out… BUT, that doesn’t mean i’ll never get to stay in one. It seems like i’m not the only one who loves them, because Treehouse HOTELS can be found all around the world! I am too amped for words. Check it out:
Free Spirit Spheres (Vancouver Island, Canada)
These handcrafted spheres are suspended from the trees by a complex series of ropes, allowing them to sway gently in the wind and change elevation based on the movement of the trees. A large window gives guests a view of the Pacific Northwest rainforest, and hot showers and a sauna are available to warm up on chilly nights (each sphere is equipped with a heater and cozy bedding as well!).
Mirrorcube Treehouse (Sweden)
Located 60 kilometres south of the Arctic circle, in Harads, Sweden, this stunning hide-out is made of light-weight aluminum which is hung around the base of a single tree. The exterior is camouflaged by mirror walls that reflect their surroundings while the interior is plywood. If Sweden’s not your thing, you can have your own Mirrorcube delivered and constructed at your desired destination.
Cedar Creek Treehouse (Washington, USA)
They offer unique tree house with this “bed and breakfast” cottage 50 feet up in a 200-year old Western Red Cedar tree.
Treehouses Hotel (Costa Rica)
Post Ranch Inn (California)
Perched 1200 feet above the Pacific Ocean on the rocky cliffs of Big Sur, the unique triangular treehouses at this eco-friendly resort are constructed on stilts 9 feet above the forest floor.
Sanya Nanshan Treehouse Resort (China)
Tree House Point (Issaqua, Washington, USA)
Created by owner, author and treehouse builder Peter Nelson, this resort offers two distinct cabins built into the moss-covered old-growth forests of the Pacific Northwest. Think warm, mountain cabin that you access via a suspension bridge or spiral staircase (that wraps around a tree trunk).
Tongabezi Treehouse (Livingstone, Zambia)
At the end of the swimming pool a hidden path winds along the cliff face to their secluded Tree House. Tongabezi is a luxury lodge near Victoria Falls in Zambia… voted among the world’s finest places to stay in Condé Nast.
