Itching to get out of town? Ready to brave the elements while glamping (we're kidding, this is California, honey)? In lieu of a mundane hotel with its corridors and carpet, why not try an Instagram-worthy wood panneled treehouse on Airbnb? Maybe it’s because living in a treehouse is a childhood dream made real (some of these have slides and poles), or perhaps we have some deep-rooted desire to get in touch with nature on a level we rarely get to these days. Either way, we love the idea of having our living quarters suspended in the sky. Breathing in good oxygen, smelling nice foresty smells...
This roundup of the best treehouse rentals includes approximate drive times from L.A., but we all know the time of day can majorly impact traffic patterns. Some of them happen to be close to San Jose and Fremont too, if that's easier. After all, an escape from the concrete jungle and spend some quality time in nature can help lower your stress level and boost your mood, so why spoil that!
Unlike your childhood treehouse, you won’t have to worry about pesky parents interrupting playtime to tell you dinner’s ready. But some of these treehouse rentals do come with breakfast prepared by the host, or a full kitchen to prepare your own food. Because of their intentionally remote locations, it’s best to pack some snacks and drinks to have on hand at these treehouses. Though one is basically on a hotel's site.
If you share our dream of treehouse living, check out our list of some of the best Airbnb rentals worth the drive from L.A. that will surely make your friends jealous. Oh, and happy adventuring!
