1. Argyle, NY: The whispering wind treehouse

This treehouse just outside Glen Falls is totally off the grid: so no electricity, no Wi-Fi, and sleeping in a loft with a clear roof. You don't need fancy-schmancy stuff like electricity though, as the space is filled with natural light. The home also boasts a cozy living room and an attached deck with a cafe 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).

2. Willington, CT: The Treehouse at Bluebird Farm

This Connecticut treehouse is a beauty; just look at it! However, the cozy cute charm of the home itself is only half the story here. You see, it’s right in the heart of the beautiful town of Willington, home to fantastic breweries and vineyards, some of the best hiking trails around, and great local diners. There’s also a very cool drive-in cinema you should check out. But the best thing about this custom-built treehouse? It’s located on Bluebird Farm – a real working farm with all manner of cute-as-hell animals wandering around. Basically, you’re taking a treehouse vacation in your own mini-zoo. You’re going to have a blast.

This pricy treehouse is Airbnb’s most wish-listed property in the entire world. The dreamy space features three rooms connected by rope bridges hung with twinkling lights and a hammock deck built around “Old Man,” a 165-year-old pine tree. The breezy, light-filled space is totally secluded, making for a relaxing, nature-filled stay you’ll never forget.

Just because you're in a treehouse, it doesn't mean you're compromising on space. This stunning two-story townhouse comes supported by a hefty Douglas fir, which you'll never forget thanks to the ingenious ways they've allowed parts of the tree inside the house. If you're more into the luxe kind of holiday, this could be the treehouse you're looking for. What's not to love about morning coffees overlooking the Unita mountains?

5. Bellingham, WA: The Pleasant Bay lookout

If you truly want to immerse yourself in the trees, this Bellingham Airbnb is the place to do it. Nestled snugly into the forest, the Pleasant Bay Lookout is essentially a cozy, 121-square-foot lounge with tea/coffee-making facilities and a view, but boy what a view. A floor-to-ceiling glass door opens out onto a generous terrace, across which lies the sparkling Salish Sea. Chuckanut Mountain trails and beaches are nearby too, but you'd be forgiven for wanting to simply sit back and admire the view and the wildlife. There's also access to a hot tub outside the host's main house, should you fancy a soak amongst nature.

6. Lyons, CO: The little red treehouse

As the name suggests, this adorable treehouse looks like a miniature red farmhouse that's been picked up and plonked in the Colorado bush. The wood-paneled inside is just as quaint as the outside, with a cozy loft bed (great for kids) and a modest double tucked beside the kitchenette. There's wi-fi in the home and shops and restaurants are within walking distance.

Tucked away in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains right near Saratoga Springs, this adorable treehouse is accessed by a spiral staircase and hung with twinkling strands of lights. You'll have your own bedroom and porch, with shared areas including a full bathroom with all the necessities. Like the idea of cooking alfresco?

There's no better time to visit coastal Maine than in fall, when the forests turn into a blush of rust and crimson and the cool air breezes through the trees. Immerse yourself fully in this gorgeous setting by renting a custom-made treehouse, which consists of two elevated dwellings connected by a cute rope bridge. Relax on the screened-in porch overlooking Back River, then head out to explore the 21-acre property and nearby Reid State Park beaches. Kayaks and canoes are also included free of charge.

Talk about tropical paradise. This sky-high retreat in Hawaii is nestled in the dense jungle, under a canopy of flora.

Decorated with stylish interior design, such as soft yellow tones, brass lanterns, mosquito nets, and an old-school record machine. It's somewhere you can properly let go and unwind in peace.
