As an adult, I want my tree houses to be less about hiding and spying and more about romance, the thrill of climbing up high and just enough nature (while still sleeping in a real bed). I'd still take those PB & J deliveries, but now it will have to come from room service, not from mom. Let's dream about spending a summer night in one of these beauties.
If you're in the Pacific Northwest, this collection of adorable treehouse cabins in Fall City, Washington (near Seattle) is a great bet. Thank all those lush evergreen trees for the privacy you'll get in your rustic little room. Check it out here.
If you're up for an international tree sleeping experience, this is it. Treehotel in the forest of Northern Sweden has been on my bucket list for a while. The high design rooms all have a different theme (that's also Treehotel's "Nest" room in the top pic), but the goal for each is to blend into the forest seamlessly (and those modern interiors look amazing stylish as well). Book here.
Free Spirit Spheres
The folks in British Columbia, Canada know how to take advantage of those thick rainforests. These spherical rooms are such a cool way to spend a night and just look at that murphy bed and wood beamed ceiling! See more here.
La Cabane en L’Air
This collection of tree cabins (there're more than 200!) are dotted throughout France. They all have different locations, designs and features; this cute thatched roof cabin is in Fontaine Chatel and is accessible only by ladder bridge. Some even have zip lines! Search them all here.
