WHERE: Issaquah, Washington
Less than a half hour outside of Seattle, six cabins in the trees comprise TreeHouse Point, an adults-only (children 13+ are allowed) retreat for those looking to connect with nature. While the comforts of heat, electricity, and a plush bed in the cabins suffice, there is an element of “roughing it,” as none of the cabins have bathroom facilities. The grounds share one bathhouse with toilets and showers for all guests, akin to a campground. The cabins vary in size and design, but expect well-outfitted interiors filled with antique furniture and fun accents on the walls. With its short supply of cabins and high demand, be sure to plan more than a year in advance for your stay.

WHERE: Glenmont, Ohio
The six tree houses that make up the aboveground accommodations at Ohio‘s The Mohicans are storybook perfection. In fact, two of them were featured in the book Be in a Tree House by Pete Nelson, tree house designer and star of Discovery Channel’s “Treehouse Masters.” These Nelson-designed perches are connected via wooden pathways in the forest, where sizes range from two to four guest accommodations. Each of the tree houses are entirely unique, where some feature outdoor showers and others offer full baths, but the common thread throughout all of them is their proximity to amazing hiking, fishing, and canoeing options in this natural playground.

The Aviary at Wheatleigh Hotel
WHERE: Lenox, Massachusetts
Luxury meets nature-chic at The Aviary, Wheatleigh Hotel‘s top-of-the-line, two-story treetop suite. Formerly an aviary, this design-forward hideaway has been retrofitted to feature expansive windows, a custom-built winding staircase, and a disarming antique soaking tub. Take the time to descend from the treetops and make use of the resort’s expansive 22 acres, where no stay is complete without a visit to the immaculate wine cellar and the picture-perfect pool. Come summer, Wheatleigh hosts a weekly Wednesday night barbecue, serving a high-end al fresco experience.

The Treehouse at Winvian Farm
WHERE: Litchfield Hills, Connecticut
You won’t soon forget a night in the Treehouse at Winvian Farm, one of the nineteen unique accommodation options on the 113-acre property in the Litchfield Hills of Connecticut. A stay in the Treehouse starts with an ascent up the color-canopied staircase to the main entrance, 35 feet from the forest floor. With two floors, the cottage features a king-size bed and sofa pullout, along with luxurious amenities including two fireplaces, a steam shower, and a Jacuzzi. With a full bar on the second floor, a night in the 780-square-foot property makes for the perfect celebratory toast.

Out’n’About Treehouse Treesort
WHERE: Cave Junction, Oregon
There’s a commonality at the Out’n’About Treehouse Treesort in Oregon that creates fast friends among the nightly tenants of its twelve world-class tree houses: All guests have waited for this night for upward of a year—the furthest advance booking allowed. Each tree house is unique and sparingly decorated with a rustic, camping feel, and the Treesort is modeled as a bed and breakfast with the events and scope of a resort. With plenty of activities to fill the day, from horseback riding to an extensive zip-line course, you’ll want to make sure to carve some time out to marvel at the structures suspended in the trees or sit back in your high post and take in the view.
