This treehouse just outside Glen Falls is totally off the grid: no electricity, no Wi-Fi and a sleeping loft with a clear roof. The light-filled space also boasts a cozy living room and an attached deck with a café table. Guests have access to an outdoor kitchen, outdoor shower and all of the host’s tranquil five-acre property. (And if you do need to plug in, you can do so at the host’s nearby yurt).
