If you’re looking to take your next vacay to new heights — literally — take a look at these treehouse accommodations, located from coast to coast and everywhere in between.
An Adirondack tree house retreat
Escape to simple pleasures and serenity in this rustic and charming tree tucked into the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains — a short drive away from hiking trails and lakes in upstate New York. Relax on the front porch with a cup of coffee, and listen to the rhythm of trees.
Electric heater and fan included for creature comforts.
Fall asleep in the midst of an avocado and orange orchard, surrounded by goats, chickens and other animals on this working farm. Time stills, roosters crow and fresh eggs are yours to collect for breakfast if you’d like. Pay an extra $140 to learn how to cook a packer-cut of brisket on an outdoor BBQ then take home the leftovers — enough to feed 15 to 20 people.
Overlooking a 500-acre park, this luxury treehouse has two fireplaces, seven rooms and even a Jacuzzi. The bathroom sink is made from a tree stump, and the interior is decked out in pristine woodwork. Did we mention the chandeliers?
It’s the only legal tree house in the Minneapolis area for overnight stays.
Art lovers and purveyors of vintage goods will fall in love with this hand-built tree house, stocked with antiques and eclectic music. Wake up to stunning sunsets streaming in through the floor-to-ceiling windows, and hike through the woods to waterfalls and swimming holes.
It has three bedrooms, with sleeping space for five temporary tree dwellers.
Designed and built by two friends as a passion project, this geometric structure features a floor-to-ceiling cinematic view of a peaceful, private pond. The king-size bed is lofted, and accessible via a ladder — like an upper bunk bed for grown ups.
Swim in the pond … or the wood-burning Swedish hot tub.
Take a 40-minute ferry ride to an island off the coast of Washington state. Built by a local designer upon two Douglas Fir trees and connected to land via a hanging bridge, this tree house was designed to rock gently in the wind, rolling off the Pacific.
Surrounded by the Upright Head Preserve — 26 acres of trails and stunning ocean views.
Airbnbs are generally safe to stay in during the coronavirus pandemic, as long as you’re following CDC guidelines. For extra precaution, look for rentals that offer self check-in, so you can avoid physical interaction with the host.
In response to COVID-19, Airbnb has provided its community of hosts with an expert-backed cleaning protocol with step-by-step directions for sanitizing their property. Hosts can take a quiz confirming their understanding of this protocol. If they pass, their listing will get an Enhanced Clean indicator — offering further peace of mind that the property has undergone rigorous cleaning prior to your arrival.
