If you're not that ambitious but are a dreamer, then it may be time to turn to Airbnb. Here are just a few tree houses that are available for rent through Airbnb.
Please note: tree houses are built in trees. Bugs live in trees. Wild animals live near/in trees. Despite the fact that these are "tranquil" or "isolated" locations, you likely won't be entirely alone if you decide to take a trip to one of the following retreats.
Sleeps: 5 guests Regular night's stay: $129/night A note from the hosts: Slide open a wall of glass to a dual-level pool overlooking stunning rice fields. Drink coffee at a bistro table next to a living tree growing up from the floor and out through the roof. Take the stairway winding around a second tree to a luxurious haven, with balcony and swing chair amongst the treetops. The Treehouse at Satori is more than an enchanting hideaway, we also have the loveliest team ready to help you create a stress-free, unforgettable adventure. All you'll need to do is check-in and enjoy the Bali magic. *As seen in Marie Claire Magazine's Luxury Airbnb Picks for 2019*

This is one of the most (if not most) popular Airbnb's in South Carolina. Because of their high demand, they release open dates on the 15th of every month at 12 noon EST OR 11AM for us Wisco folk. If you're interested in staying in this wondrous, and truly majestic tree house, make sure to mark your calendar for the 15th!
Sleeps: 4 guests Regular night's stay: $249/night ; minimum 2 night stay A note from the hosts:Nestled in the heart of berry country, surrounded by pine trees, Boulder Ridge Treehouse is a handcrafted retreat where you can savor a northwoods experience with the emphasis on "woods." Lake Superior driftwood has been fashioned into beautiful railing enclosing an upstairs double loft with a catwalk joining two sleeping areas. Much of the wood used in the tree house was harvested from the property, including the solid maple counter top featuring inlaid Lake Superior agates.
If that's not enough to convince you, then I should tell you that an adorable and sweet border collie often comes to visit. For all of my Wisco friends, this can literally be a weekend vacation!
Sleeps:3 guests Regular night's stay: $260/night ; minimum 2 night stay A note from the hosts:Our treehouse retreat is one of the most sought after destinations for couples seeking to reconnect with nature. Nestled in the foothills of the Adirondack Mtns. and just 9 miles from Saratoga Springs, NY, boasting quiet solitude. The winding staircase leads to a sleeping area and covered porch. Also outdoor kitchen, deck, fire pit and full bath are included. Please keep in mind that our treehouse is meant as a quiet retreat for 1-3 people.
Mountain climbing, boating, hiking, fishing, and swimming are only a few of the activities you can engage in while staying at this wonder in the woods. If it were me, I'd be sipping my coffee on the adorable patio, taking a stroll down to the pond, or enjoying the sounds of the stream at the fire pit.
Sleeps:2 guests Regular night's stay: $350/night ; minimum 2 night stay A note from the hosts: The Willow Treehouse is settled among the trees, overlooking a small, swimmable pond, on a wooded property 15min away from the town of Woodstock. It is cozy, yet has all you need to cook dinner, enjoy reading, chilling, or swimming. Separate spaces for chilling, writing a novel or enjoying the view. The sleeping loft is accessible by a ladder, and you would have to walk in with your luggage, so pack lightly. It is perfect for couples and solo adventurers.
This secluded, romantic retreat is definitely on my bucket list. The hot tub located right next to the serene pond is heated by firewood. How cool is that?!
Sleeps:4 guests Regular night's stay: $62/night A note from the hosts: Come and relax above the treetops in this one of a kind TREEHOUSE, with amazing valley views and distant sea views. Enjoy being surrounded by nature and marvel at the abundant birdlife. With it's rural setting and unique build, you are guaranteed a special stay. Sardinia Bay beach is a short drive away and is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. There are walks along the beach, rocks or hiking trails that you can explore.
If you could see yourself sleeping in a tree but you're more of a beach vacationer, then this is probably your idea of perfection. You can literally look at the ocean while you enjoy a cup of coffee in the treetops.
Sleeps: 2 guests Regular night's stay: $275/night A note from the host: ACRE Is situated on 25-acres of authentic farmland in San Jose del Cabo. Each treehouse has a queen sized bed, bathroom, closet space, patio and outdoor shower. The walls allow breezes and views of the surrounding palm trees but are lined with both bug screens and curtains for your comfort and privacy. Just note that this "glamping" experience comes with all of the sound effects of the nature surrounding us.
Our very own team member Jill stayed here and said it was a dream. This is a great option for someone who wants to stay somewhere unique yet likes the perks of a hotel, i.e. restaurant/bar in house, daily room service, a pool right outside, etc.
Remember that treehouse at the beginning of this post, covered in twinkly lights and snow, with a cute dog sitting in front of it? Well, I originally found that photo on a free sharing website and then later on, happened upon the same exact treehouse on Airbnb. Fate? Quite possibly! Why not make it your fate too:
Sleeps: 4 guests Regular night's stay: $250/night ; minimum 3 night stay A note from the host: Montana Treehouse Retreat: FEATURED On The Treehouse Guys on DIY Network! Nestled on a wooded 5 acres, this artistically designed double decker treehouse is one of a kind and has all the luxury amenities. Within 30 minutes to Glacier National Park, minutes from Whitefish Mountain Ski Resort. Best of both worlds if you want to experience Montana nature as well have access to activities in Whitefish and Columbia Falls (within a 5 min drive).
Town is just a short drive away, yet you have complete tranquil isolation in this beautiful retreat. The inside of this tree house has a total modern, cabin feel, while the outside is any mountain and nature lovers' fantasy.
After spending an entire day researching these amazing sanctuaries, I've planned enough vacations to keep me away from home for several years; to be honest, I don't think I even got past the first page of listings. That being said, I need to stop somewhere. If you'd like to check out some other Airbnb treehouse options, take a look for yourself here. Be forewarned: you'll likely lose track of time if you follow that link. The options are endless and each structure is even more beautiful than the next. When you're on the Airbnb website, you can play with the search filters to determine where you'd like to stay, what type of home you'd like to stay in, etc.
