Treehouse Hotels in the United States

Treehouses aren't just for kids and renting one for your next girls-only vacation might be a great idea if you love nature and want to try something totally unique and memorable.
There are treehouse hotels around the world in exotic locations like the Amazon, but you don't need to get a passport and leave the country to experience some of the best ones - right here in the United States! These hotels are usually smaller "bed and breakfast" style, while some are even more rustic than that and closer to a camping cabin but stuck in a tree.

Treehouse Cabin on the North Fork River

Located on the North Fork River in the Missouri Ozarks, this cabin in the trees sleeps six people and is perfect for a scapbooking weekend, hiking in the Ozarks, trout fishing (yes, fishing trips aren't just for the boys!), canoeing, swimming, or pretty much anything else you can imagine.

Out'n'About Treesort

The owners of this cabin in the trees encourage you to lit-treely, "go out on a limb" and have fun and learn something while you're there.
In addition to the treehouse the Treesort also features a series of classes on a variety of topics from ecology to how to build a treehouse. Unlike many treehouse hotels, Out'n'About features several cabins ranging from 2 person units to larger treehouses for 5 people or more.
Out'n'About Treesort is located in Cave Junction, Oregon.


Alaskan Treehouse Adventure

Ready for a super rustic adventure vacation in Alaska?
This might be your thing! While it only sleeps two people, it would be great if you want to get away with just one of your friends, or maybe your mom or sister. This treehouse is so rustic that there are NO ROADS - you have to fly in (from Anchorage), but the lake by the treehouse is only small enough to fly in - to fly out you must raft down the river to a larger lake!

Cedar Creek Treehouse

If you want the ultimate treehouse hotel experience, you must check out the Cedar Creek Treehouse. It is set high in a tree more than 50 feet in the air in a gorgeous forest at the base of Mount Rainer in Washington state.
