There’s something about a treehouse that just feels like magic. The whimsical “homes”, tangled in branches and leaves, remind us of childhood — complete with endless imaginative adventures. But, as adults, revisiting one of these nostalgic structures no longer needs to look like climbing up the withered old oak in our parents’ backyard and smacking our heads on a low-hanging piece of plywood.
Thanks to Airbnb’s arboreal offerings, our treehouse dreams can become vacation realities. The home-stay site surfaces some of its most popular treehouse listings in the world, and we’ve also gone ahead and taken an extra close look at what’s out there (and up there). And trust us, you can do way more than host a stuffed-animal tea party in the stunning structures ahead — they’re designed for eating, sleeping, and enjoying outdoor seclusion with friends.

“The Sugar Maple Treehouse was hand-built by us as a peaceful and serene retreat in central Vermont. Surrounded by the wilderness of the Green Mountain National Forest and perched high above the ground in three maple trees, there is no place better to escape to. There are so many things to do in this area between Killington and Sugarbush, I can't list them all! Between the cozy bed and in-house massage therapist you probably won’t want to leave anyway.”

“This space was handcrafted by my family in 2017 with live-edge cedar siding, tongue-and-groove pine walls, and a locally-sourced lodgepole pine staircase.
