Moonlight Tree House In Ohio

So you’ve been around the block a few times and have stayed at all the usual hotels: the ones with bellhops and sea-facing views, boutique places with too much furniture, hotels in vibrant, exciting cities with an impressive breakfast spread.

You want to do something different this time, so that when you talk about your holiday, no one interrupts you with their story of the time they stayed there which was even better.

Why not dig up those childhood memories and head for a tree house somewhere in the good old USA?

That’s something not many of your friends will be doing on their weekends off, guaranteed.

If you’re worried that “tree house” means you’ll have to compromise on comfort, it doesn’t. We are not talking about austere affairs where you need to bring your own sleeping bag, here.

Read on to find a list of eleven tree houses that are more like mansions in trees, really.

These places come equipped with everything you’d find at a regular hotel, and then some: jacuzzis, full bars, kitchens, fireplaces, the works.

Which does not make them any less ideal for spin-the-bottle or scary story time. Pick one from the following list, pack a torch and plenty of candy and climb up to your secret hideout – who’s to stop you?

This place feels like you’re in a movie. An action movie about volcanoes and their tamer: you. You have saved the world and now you’re ready to relax in the hot tub set into the beautiful wooden deck of your tree house. It’s a tough job, saving the world, you think as you squint into the distance over the branches of your home. You look at the stars and know that there are gigantic volcanoes a stone’s throw away looking at the same ones. You know them like the back of your hand. Roll credits.

Another Hawaiian treasure. This remote paradise is for those seeking total seclusion. The world could end and you wouldn’t know it. This place is a lovely choice for environmentalists, using rainwater and other natural resources. Climb up to your own private lanai – that’s Hawaiian for veranda, which is Portuguese for porch – and feel like you’re on top of the world. Which you very nearly are, on locally harvested bamboo stilts that hold you 15 feet above the ground. So get up here to enjoy rainy days in the depths of a tropical forest and awake to the sound of some exotic bird rather than a garden variety rooster.

Leave the kids at home this winter and enjoy a lovely weekend away. Just you, your loved one and the mules, deer, bobcats, turkeys, mountain lions and owls. This rustic beauty is well worth the drive, and rest assured no one will be hot on your heels over here. Word on the farm is you must be willing to plant a tree, though. And take an outdoor shower, which is one of the most exhilarating experiences money can buy. The stars above you and hot water streaming down is liberating like nothing else. There is no fancy tub that comes close to making you feel as alive. Try it.

If you do want to take the kids along to bore them to tears with stories of your childhood sans tree house, this is the place to do it. Since you are in a tree house, you can shed your cloak of adulthood and get down to some good old childish fun. Go play a round of Marco Polo in the lake, check out Austin, the self proclaimed weird city, or just stay in and build a blanket fort, for once. Just don’t expect the little ones to ever stop nagging you about getting a tree house of their own after you take them here. You wouldn’t be reading this if you ever got over it, either.

If tree houses are not what you think of when you think luxury, think again – the above ground houses of Primland are more tree villas than houses. They come equipped with everything you could possibly want for in a fancy pad and have some of the best views found on the continent, but still earn you the right to claim you spent the weekend at a tree house. Choose one of three houses on offer: live like an owl in a sturdy oak tree, enjoy the air at the top like a hawk or perch like an eagle gazing down into the valley. All three come with fantastic decks, so you can hang out with the other birds inhabiting the region.

If, on the other hand you happen to be on the opposite side of the country, don’t worry because you’ve got another sublime option: The Winvian Farm tree house in the hills of Litchfield, the place to be in the fall. If you are going to be there, you better admire the famous colorful forest from 35 feet above the ground: from this tree house, where you can have a drink from the full bar to really tie the experience together. Once the sun sets on those reds yellows and browns you can retreat to the jacuzzi or sit by the fireplace. It could be worse, couldn’t it?
