Treehouses (& other off-the-beaten-path vacations)


Every now and then someone will recommend a new source of off-the-beaten path vacation rentals, and I’ll find myself whiling away an hour, lost in a spell of wanderlust, favorite-ing and pinn-ing special places we might want to visit one day when a real opportunity arrives.

Glamping Hub reached out to say that they just added a treehouse collection to their already unique and inspiring list of yurts, teepees, safari tents, A-frames, railcars, and (one of my favorites) campervans—and the scope is amazing. The treehouses run the gamut from basic to bizarre, rustic to luxury, but they’re all pretty incredible.

Here are some favorites…



High (up) Concept design in Sweden: cabins overlooking the Lule River valley. (There’s a sauna nearby!)



Stay overnight when you book a canopy tour. Near Lake Travis in Spicewood, Texas, just outside of Austin.

Glamp in a tropical forest on the island of Hawaii with Puna Forest Reserve to the east, Kahaualea Natural Area Reserve to the south, Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park to the west, and Ola’a Forest Reserve to the north.
Four people can share this spot, in the Midi-Pyrénées region of southwestern France in the Dordogne Valley, between Rocamadour and Padirac.


Stay in a Sequoia forest in the “banana belt” of the Santa Cruz Mountains.

The stuff of dreams (mine, at least): Tree-perched bandas within an animal sanctuary in Kenya, with views of Mt. Kilimanjaro in the distance.
Deep in the Amazon, you can only reach these bungalows built high over the river by boat or by hydroplane.
Find these luxury treehouses in the rainforest of Queensland, Australia.
Activities at this glamping resort in Madagascar include guided forest walks and snorkeling in Tampolo Marine Reserve.
I wonder if the cute dog comes with this treehouse in Vermont?


Which would you choose? Have you glamped or stayed in a treehouse? 

P.S. Incredible underground homes in the Alps.
