The 17 Coolest Treehouses on Airbnb You Can Book Right Now
When you need to get away, take to the trees.
Some childhood dreams just aren’t as cool as we thought they’d be. Like working a grownup job, or driving an ordinary car. And then there are the dreams that turn out to be even more awesome than expected. Take living in a treehouse, for example. Your neighbor’s ladder access-only hideaway might have been fun, but the reality of a treehouse that’s actually a house is a thousand times better than you ever could’ve imagined when you were young. Trust us on this one. We may not reside in treehouses full time, but we’ve seen what you can rent on Airbnb in this department and it does not disappoint.
If you want to try living in a treehouse for a weekend, you can go for rustic nostalgia, or rent a high-up home with ridiculous levels of amenities and style. We’re talking hot tubs and elevators, glamorous decor and luxury bedding. If you want a cozy perch with just enough room for one or two people, that’s totally an option, but you can even find a sprawling property with enough space to sleep ten guests up in the forest canopy. When it comes to the best treehouse Airbnbs, these 17 options showcase so many different approaches to the same concept—and all of them offer incredible views.

The secluded pastoral space known as Sulfur Ridge Tree House is just minutes from several Tennessee state parks, and makes for an exceptional romantic retreat with a stellar view of its surroundings. Touted as the state's "first luxury treehouse," its design is best described as historically hodgepodge with a dash of glam, featuring a front door that's nearly 200 years old, armchairs upholstered with antique quilts, stained glass windows from the 19th century, a cast iron clawfoot tub big enough for two, and even an old-school jukebox. Step outside and you'll have your choice of sitting around the fire pit, lounging in the hot tub, or cooking dinner on the grill.
What guests say: "Run… Don’t walk to book this place. This was the best couple of days we’ve had in a long time. The treehouse is a romantic and relaxing gem of a place. It’s clean and Susan and Trent have thought of everything. You will love all the little details. The jukebox, hot tub, fire pit and swinging outdoor bed were all wonderful. 20 out of 10 stars!!!!"

Just 15 minutes outside of Woodstock, New York, this cozy retreat sits on 34 acres of private property, making it the perfect place to get up close and personal with nature any time of year. Inside, you'll find a lofted bed perched above the open living room and kitchen, all of which look out over a massive wall-to-wall window facing the modest pond out front. Whether you're in the mood for a hike, feel like flexing your culinary muscles, or just want to get lost in a book beside the wood stove, this is one hell of spot to unplug.
What guests say: "It’s magic. Remote yet accessible, freeing yet grounding. The Willow Treehouse is a gift you give yourself. Pictures don’t do it justice. Record player and French press add charm to an already remarkable space. Light and nature from every corner of the house (even at night from the moonbeams). Wake early for the sunrise - you will only regret missing it. Sip your coffee or tea as you listen to undisturbed nature. We city dwellers can’t wait to return."

Nestled among towering redwoods, this geometric pinecone-shaped structure is truly a work of art. Suspended by wires, it sits 35 feet above the ground on the uphill side and 60 feet above the ground on the downhill side. The floor is made of clear panels, and the walls are almost entirely windows, which means you’ll have spectacular views wherever you look. The pinecone can only be accessed through a trapdoor that requires you to climb a steep ladder while utilizing a harness and ascension safety system, so if you have a fear of heights, you might want to skip this one. However, if you’ve always wanted to see what it feels like to sleep in a bird’s nest, this is definitely for you.
What guests say: “I cannot recommend this Airbnb enough! The pictures will never do it justice! The minute my fiancé and I pulled up to the Pinecone, we were both speechless at just how amazing it was. It was like staying in a work of art. The bedroom is beautiful with lovely plush bedding and twinkling string lights. They even have a hammock underneath, which we used quite a bit. Chandra, our host, was amazing and made sure we had everything we needed. The bathroom was also incredible. You just cannot beat the rainfall shower in the middle of the redwoods. We found ourselves spending more time in the bathroom than usual just taking in the beautiful views. If you have an opportunity to stay at this lovely location, definitely jump on it."

Surrounded by giant Douglas Fir trees, this luxe double-decker abode —which can comfortably house four people—sits just 30 minutes from the glorious Glacier National Park, providing a unique home base for you and your crew to set off from and return to after a long day of hiking and exploring. After ascending a huge spiral staircase, you'll access 500 square feet of living space, complete with a master suite, full kitchen, and two separate decks, in addition to a charming fire pit setup down below.
What guests say: "We had the most wonderful stay in the Meadowlark Treehouse! I cannot say enough great things about our time here. The location is lovely—close enough to Glacier NP to explore every day, and just outside of Columbia Falls so that dining and any necessities were super convenient. The treehouse is just magnificent and was like staying in a fairytale. A dream of a dream come true. Thank you for sharing your beautiful piece of heaven with us, Kati! Highly highly highly recommend staying here—you will not want to miss this bucket list dream!"

Built back in the 1950s, this elevated perch—dubbed the "Crystal Peak Lookout"—was originally located at the top of a mountain in Washington, but moved to its current location in the '80s. Surrounded by 13 wooded acres, it's since been remodeled with everything you'd need for a comfortable night in the wilderness, including a wood-burning stove that keeps it suitably warm all year. If you need a break from the panoramic vista or feel like relaxing after a long hike, just hop down to the wood-fired sauna, which sits on the ground level.
What guests say: "The Fernwood Lookout was paradise. The accommodations are so nice even though you're out in the middle of nowhere. We wanted for nothing. It was so cozy, romantic and beautiful. The sauna was incredible and the outhouse was even notches above rustic. We couldn't have had a better time and can't wait to come back!"

Live out your Vermont fantasies in this rustic two-person lodge nestled in white pines along the edge of a small pond. It's surrounded by 40 acres of forest and wetlands teeming with wildlife. In the warmer months, take out the canoe and hike around the water's edge before settling in for a nice barbecue dinner on the deck. During the winter, spend the day at nearby Jay Peak (it's just a 20-minute drive) and wind down with an aprés ski soak in the cedar hot tub.
What guests say: "The attention to every detail from the waffle ingredients and maker to toiletry items, plenty of towels, etc. The views to the pond, canoe access, fire pit access, grill access, accent lighting, and my personal favorite the wood structure hot tub were all a huge bonus to the place. Location was great, being in a peaceful area between Jay Peak Resort and Newport, VT. We definitely plan to return in the future!"

If you're in the mood to test out treehouse life with a bunch of friends, you can't go wrong with this expansive cabin in the sky. With enough room to accommodate up to 14 guests, this is more of a tree mansion, featuring killer views, vaulted ceilings, and amenities at every turn. Sip your morning coffee or afternoon cocktail on one of its five balconies, throw together a big meal in the kitchen, plop down in front of the flatscreen, and take it easy around the ceramic fire pit after dark. If you do feel like venturing out, though, you're steps from a lake and countless nearby trails.
What guests say: "Our entire annual lake trip crew throughly enjoyed this tree house. Fantastic views. Great amenities. Perfect for escaping reality for a bit. The outdoor experiences are wonderful from the decks to the hot tub to the firepit to the lookout. All around solid spots for those who don’t want to be near people and prefer an isolated getaway. 5 stars. Worth the trek outside Nashville."

This one-room “lookout” is tucked away in a forest overlooking the Salish Sea, a view that can be appreciated during all daylight hours through a wall of windows that leads out to a deck. The space is small, but every detail is thoughtful and purposeful; you’ll hang your coat on a branched tree from the property and rest your coffee cup on a live edge table made by one of the owners. You will also have access to a hot tub.
What guests say: “This was probably the coolest Airbnb we have stayed in to date. The love and care the hosts put into it is evident with every detail. We enjoyed the hot tub after days of hiking, saw the sun set from the balcony and watched the stars as we fell asleep. Couldn’t have been a more relaxing and comfortable stay"

This 30-foot-high treehouse sits on 40 acres of secluded property just outside of Alabama’s Bankhead National Forest, with nature trails, waterfalls, and a lake with a paddle boat ready for adventurers. After you return from an afternoon of exploring, you won’t want to leave. The little home has everything you could need, including wraparound porches, a fire pit with cozy seating, a separate observation deck for grilling and chilling, a soaking tub big enough for two, outdoor showers (also for two), a swinging bed for naps and reading, and a telescope for stargazing.
What guests say: “Tranquility at its finest! The attention to detail is bar none here at the Wanderlust Firefly Treehouse. From the private outdoor showers looking up at the trees, hammocks provided to hang anywhere on property, corn hole boards, to the fire pit at the treehouse and the lake, nature trails, bicycles, telescope, record player. You name it and it’s there for your enjoyment! This was the most amazing experience ever and we will absolutely be returning again!"

Whether you arrive by broomstick, portkey, hippogriff, or just a good old-fashioned car, this Harry Potter-themed treehouse in the mountains will whisk you away to a land of magic and endless views. Set on 8 acres of forested land, Wizards Hollow is one of several treehouses on the property, but it’s the only one that will enchant you with Harry Potter decor, a secret doorway, and even a sorting hat if you need to figure out which house you’re meant to belong to. There’s also a spacious deck with rocking chairs (perfect for practicing spells) and a fire pit for sitting around in the evening—or traveling by the Floo Network.
What guests say: “This was truly a magical experience - we so appreciated the beautiful decor, lovely snacks, HP-themed details, gorgeous views, and a very cozy space to watch one of the movies. We hope to stay again as soon as we can.”

Nestled between two giant oak trees just steps from a small lake outside Orlando, this 15-foot-high haunt has plenty of unique attributes—starting with its interior living quarters, which are housed inside an 18-foot yurt. Beyond that, it features an elevator shaped like a tree trunk, an elevated lookout patio, a hot tub fashioned from an old jet engine, and a private tiki hut down on the ground level. Plus, your stay includes access to a golf cart to cruise around the 5-acre property and nearby trails—should you ever feel compelled to actually leave the hot tub, that is.
What guests say: "This treehouse is perfect! We were able to enjoy nature and feel like we were camping, but had all the creature comforts of a hotel. The property had so many places to explore and the golf carts made that exploration fun and easy! I can't say enough great things about all the cute animals. Listening to the rain from the treehouse was memorable and relaxing. The hot tub is a must try - don't forget to cool off after in the outdoor shower."

Don’t let its size fool you: This peaceful treehouse, accessed by a spiral staircase, has a full kitchen, two queen beds, a wood stove, a large deck with a grill, a private pond stocked with trout, and a hot tub. It’s open and airy, and has plenty of room for two couples. There are an endless amount of amazing details, like reclaimed pine floors that are over 100 years old, phone-charging lamps, a projector movie screen, and more. Venture outside to canoe around the pond, go fishing for dinner on the dock, soak in the hot tub, or just sit on the deck with a cup of coffee or wine in hand.
What guests say: “As beautiful and tranquil as the pictures suggest. It's easy to get lost in the trees and nature, yet the treehouse has every state of the art creature comfort you can ask for. Highly recommend the jacuzzi when daytime temperatures start to drop!”

Goldendale, Washington is a small town known for its amazing observatory that has one of the nation’s largest telescopes. If you stay at this treehouse, you should definitely make a day trip to Goldendale Observatory State Park—when you return to your home perched 18 feet in the air, you’ll appreciate your “private” view of the Milky Way that much more. Of all of the treehouses on this list, this one is probably closest to what you dreamed of as a kid (before you knew that treehouses with enormous soaking tubs and fireplaces were even a thing). You’ll do most of your stargazing on the deck and most of your sleeping up a flight of stairs (and up a ladder if you want to stay in the second-floor bedroom). Keep an eye out for wildlife—not only will you likely spot deer, elk, and turkey, but there’s a chance you may cross paths with bears and cougars.
What guests say: “We loved being up in the trees, Stargazing, feeling the wind, dining outside, rocking in the wooden swing and savoring the peacefulness. Your beautifully crafted enchanting treehouse was well stocked, cozy, and airy with a nice cross breeze even in the intense heat of August. We loved the coziness of the treehouse & the spaciousness of the decks for cooking, eating, and hanging out, as well as being in a beautiful remote private Pine Forest with lots of space to explore. Definitely highly recommend to folks!"

From the owner’s description, the stream that flows just feet from this tranquil treehouse is the star of the show. And while we love a good babble or two, the stream faces some tough competition in the show-stopper department, thanks to the woodsy surroundings, cozy furnishings, snug sleeping nest, deck with twinkle lights, outdoor soaking tub, campfire ring, swing, and hammock. Throw in the cabin’s proximity to hiking, kayaking (ask to borrow the owner’s), and the small chance that you might see moose, and you have yourself a perfect little woodsy escape.
What guests say: “The treehouse was a truly magical place. Heather was super friendly and accommodating and her attention to detail made the experience that much more special. Walking up the path at twilight with all of the lights aglow made it feel like a dream. Cozy up and fall asleep to the sound of the babbling brook. Take some time to unplug, unwind, and take in as many quiet moments as you can. I cannot wait to come back again!”

If West Coast vibes are what you're after, consider this secluded three-bedroom cabin next to the Nicene Marks Redwood Forest State Park near Santa Cruz. The two-story structure, which comes decked out in mid-century modern furniture and a full modern kitchen, enjoys sweeping views of both the ocean and forest, which you can take in through the floor-to-ceiling windows or while lounging in a hammock on one of its two patios. Apologies in advance for the deep depression that'll wash over you when you have to leave.
What guests say: "What an amazing house in the woods of Aptos! It’s unique, beautifully designed, and there are thoughtful touches everywhere for guests to enjoy. The views are unbeatable. The home feels up-to-date while also being historic (neat newspaper clipping downstairs telling the story). Everything was clean and nicely prepared for us to arrive. Sitting on the patios facing the forest and ocean makes you feel like you’re in a designer magazine. It was a worthwhile once-in-a-lifetime kind of experience!"

From the outside, this treehouse with a swinging wooden bridge and spiral staircase with rope handrails looks very much like, well, a treehouse. But inside, it’s more like a luxurious hotel, with white shiplap walls and floors, crisp linens, a small kitchen, and an LED fireplace. It also has an outdoor shower on the deck overlooking the native laurel trees, as well as a hot tub below.
What guests say: “The tree house is magical from the moment you begin your walk into the property. Every little detail has been considered. The entrance lighting, 'swinging bridge' entrance, the crisp and bright decor. Exceptionally comfortable bedding and seating. The deck on the back side overlooking the forest of mountain laurel, rhododendron and hardwoods is beautiful. We loved the outdoor shower and the hot tub. I think this is the cleanest Airbnb property we’ve visited, it was immaculate. I wish I could give more than 5 stars."

An old-growth cedar grows through both floors of this treehouse, which is set on 14 acres covered with Douglas firs, hemlocks, and rhododendrons, some of which are several hundred years old, and all of which can be accessed via backwoods paths. This house makes good use of the land; you’ll sleep in a loft, enjoy coffee and cocktails on the deck, use the toilet situated right next to that intruding tree, and shower in a shared cedar shower house. Outside the four walls, you can grill out and eat dinner on a patio with an outdoor kitchen overlooking a meadow, make s’mores at the fire pit a short walk from the house, and commune with the birds and frogs in the nearby pond. And though it’s very much a treehouse, the electric fireplace and Alexa add pleasant touches of modernity.
What guests say: “What an amazing place! The treehouse is nestled in the woods and is very private. Everything was thoughtfully decorated and provided all of the amenities a guest could ask for. The grounds surrounding the treehouse are simply gorgeous and is very well maintained. The host is also considerate and a great communicator. I would highly recommend Larkin’s place to anyone looking for a cute and peaceful getaway."
