  • Secluded Intown Treehouse

Dates for spring 2018 just posted, so if you want to snag a spot, be sure to book ASAP.

  • Dreamy Tropical Treehouse
    Fern Forest, Hawaii, $200 a night

    Beaches and poke aren’t the only reasons to visit Hawaii. Perched on 15-foot stilts, this jungle oasis epitomizes eco-luxury with sustainable materials, natural lighting, solar power and rainwater catchments. Standout elements include a handmade rock sink, DIY solar lantern chandelier, hanging daybed and wraparound lanai.

  • Tree House with 360 Views of L.A.
    Los Angeles, California, $700 a night

    With chic decor, breathtaking vistas and a swing, it’s no wonder this Los Angeles abode has been the backdrop for celeb photo shoots—Kate Hudson and Miranda Kerr have both been photographed here. Sure, it’ll set you back a pretty penny, but can you really put a price on that kind of cred?

  • Monteagle Tree House Hideaway - Hummingbird
    Monteagle, Tennessee, $105 a night

    Tucked away on seven acres, this cozy treetop cabin is made for a couple looking for a digital-device-free getaway. In the morning, wake up to singing birds; in the evening, relax in the hot tub (with a glass of wine, of course) and let the chirping crickets lull you to sleep.

  • Whispering Wind Treehouse
    Argyle, New York, $150 a night

    This Upstate New York retreat offers peace and quiet from the city. Be sure to spend some time on the covered porch—taking in the sights and sounds of nature—before heading back to the concrete jungle.
