If you're a nature lover and fond of adventure or unique experiences, treehouse cabins are sort of the ultimate accommodation. They roll all of the above into one: they're unique and adventurous, and most of the time, they're plunked smack down in the middle of spectacular nature.
We've previously rounded up some of our favorite unique Airbnbs and even the best, most memorable national park hotels. Today, though, it's all about the treehouse cabins. Here are nine of the coolest ones you can rent in the United States.
1. Hot Springs Treehouses - Hot Springs, Arkansas
Not only do the treehouse cabins at Hot Springs Treehouses have seriously to-die-for views and luxurious amenties, but they also offer easy access to a highly underrated national park. While the treehouse cabins feel extremely secluded, the aptly-named Hot Springs National Park is less than 10 minutes away!
Each of the treehouses features a king bed, fireplace, wi-fi, kitchenette (which is good, because trust us, you won't want to leave!), and a private back deck with a hot tub, grill, and porch swing for savoring the views of the Ouachita National Forest.
2. The Mohicans Treehouse Resort - Glenmont, Ohio
When you imagine dreamy treehouse cabins, you probably don't immediately think of Ohio, right? Well, hold that thought.
The treehouses at The Mohicans Treehouse Resort are so impressive that Matthew McConaughey stayed in one with his family! What makes The Mohicans' treehouse cabins so special? For starters, they were designed by the actual Treehouse Master himself, Pete Nelson.
Each treehouse is unique, but you can expect to find full bathrooms in each, as well as private decks with fire pits and outdoor showers. Most importantly, the treehouses are remote and cell service is spotty at best. Oh, and there's no wi-fi or streaming available; these treehouse cabins are for those looking for a true getaway!
3. Dreamer's Escape Treehouse at Kokomo Farms - Live Oak, Florida
Of all the treehouse cabins on our list, this one is by far the most rustic. Built around (and in, and on!) an actual enormous tree, Dreamer's Escape lets you live out all your childhood fantasies about living in a treehouse — or staying in one, at least!
The treehouse is screened in to protect you from critters, but otherwise, you're truly immersed in the forest. While there isn't any power, you'll have access to portable, rechargeable power options to keep your devices charged.
Aside from the treehouse, Kokomo Farms has several other unique accommodations, including tiny houses and glamping tents. Best of all, the property is a working farm and haven for rescue animals and it's located less than one hour from Ichetucknee Springs State Park, where you can kayak with manatees!
4. Treehouse Grove - Gatlinburg, Tennessee
Another Pete Nelson-designed property, the treehouse cabins at Treehouse Grove put you at the doorstep of Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the country's busiest (and one of the best for chasing waterfalls!).
Each of the eight pet-friendly treehouse cabins comes with a kitchen, A/C and heat, hot tub access, and incredible views. Downtown Gatlinburg and the national park are just a few minutes away, making this a perfect escape!
5. Montana Treehouse Retreat - Columbia Falls, Montana
Want to stay in one of the coolest treehouse cabins around and be in Glacier National Park's backyard? Of course you do!
Situated on five private acres just outside of Whitefish, an uber-charming ski resort town, Montana Treehouse Retreat features two treehouses. The first, Meadowlark, was designed and built by The Treehouse Guys.
Both feature luxurious amenities including high-end mattresses, wi-fi, smart TVs, fire pits, and full kitchens. And even though you probably won't want to peel yourself away, Glacier's West Entrance is just 10 miles away.
If you're headed to Glacier, don't forget that you need reservations to access Going-to-the-Sun Road during the busy summer months!
6. Cedar Treehouse - Shreveport, Louisiana
Nestled on Pine Island near Cross Lake in northern Louisiana, Cedar Treehouse offers a secluded, relaxing escape when you want to get away from it all.
The open-concept treehouse is situated on a completely private 2-acre gated lot with direct lake access. Bring fishing poles and try to catch dinner or take the provided kayaks out for a paddle. At the end of the evening, enjoy a soak in the authentic claw-foot tub.
Note that the Cedar Treehouse is designed for a couple, but isn't set up for children or pets.
7. Treehouse Cottage at Winvian Farm - Litchfield Hills, CT
A perfect stop on a New England road trip, Litchfield Hills, Connecticut, is renowned for being one of the best places in the U.S. to see fall foliage. How fitting, then, that it's also home to a treehouse cabin set 35 feet off the forest floor, with sweeping views?!
The Treehouse at Winvian Farm is as luxurious as it comes, with a rainfall steam shower, soaking tub, multiple gas fireplaces, a Nespresso coffeemaker, and complimentary breakfast and bicycle rentals.
If you're interested in other unique accommodations, Winvian Farm also has an indoor campsite (yep, seriously!) and a renovated helicopter!
8. Tree Houses at Primland Resort - Dan, Virginia
Three private treehouse cabins at the ultra-luxe Primland Resort near Virginia's Dan River Gorge offer the ultimate getaway. Each features king beds and an en suite bathroom, plus (and best of all) a large deck overlooking the breathtaking Blue Ridge Mountains.
Nature is a clear focus at Primland and the resort even brought in a world-renowned treehouse architectural firm (yep, it's a thing!) to ensure no nails were driven into the tree itself. We love a good eco-conscious resort!
Bonus: Shenandoah National Park is just a few hours away, making an easy day trip.
9. Treetop Hideaways - Flintstone, Georgia
The two treehouse cabins at Treetop Hideaways in Flintstone, Georgia, have a little something for every traveler.
Luna Loft is made of 1860s-era reclaimed barn wood and features a stunning penny floor and 16-foot antique windows. The Elements Treehouse is "one of the most luxurious treehouses out there," with heated floors and a show-stopping glassed-in tree growing right through it!
Both treehouse cabins come with a complimentary bottle of wine and s'mores kit for roasting on the private fire pits. If you decide to venture out, Treetop Hideaways makes a perfect basecamp for adventure — downtown Chattanooga, TN, is just minutes away across the state line and Atlanta, Birmingham, and Nashville are all nearby also.
Since you're staying at some incredible treehouse cabins, you should probably commemorate them in some way - kind of like a travel souvenir, but minus the touristy gift shop!
The Wander Club has you covered with unique Travel Tokens. Choose from US State Tokens, US National Park Tokens, Landmark Tokens, or even custom options! You may not be able to actually live in one of these awesome treehouse cabins, but you'll have a sweet reminder that will stay with you forever!
