Remember how much fun we had playing in treehouses as kids? In our minds, a treehouse was more than just a clubhouse or an escape from a room shared with an annoying sibling. It was our own little hideout where we could create our own world and play how we wanted.

As grown-ups, it’s tough to live without those magical places we had as children. That stops today!

We’ve put together a group of treehouses that will transport you back to that feeling of wonder, and, like us, these treehouses have grown up. Some are rustic escapes to an off-the-grid experience, while others offer luxuries like running water, a spiral staircase, a master suite and a sauna!

Get an eye-level view of the beautiful colors of fall from a whole new perspective, or at least one you haven’t had in a while… here are six of our favorite treehouses, located all around the country, and all available to rent at as little as $95 a night!

 

Treehouse in the Shire — $95 per night

Location: Conway, New Hampshire

The Tree: There’s no better place to observe the colors of fall than in New England, or, more specifically, from this treehouse in New Hampshire. The Shire is a cozy escape resting on 200+ acres and should only be reserved by folks looking to truly disconnect. (We’re talking zero wifi, electric, or running water.) Never taken a bucket bath before? You won’t be able to say that after your stay! Town is only 20 minutes away in case you need extra batteries or another bag of mallows. Don’t forget to bring your bike because the Kangamaguas Highway, the quietest stretch of road in New England, is right down the road!

Pet Friendly: Yes.

The Stump House —  $100 per night

Whispering Wind Treehouse — $179 per night

The treehouse is full of salvaged windows which perfectly frame the changing leaves outside. You’re sure to feel like you’re in a nest! Now that we’ve hooked you, you should know that this treehouse is totally off-the-grid, no electricity, and no wifi. Completely worth it.

    When I was a tv reporter in Des Moines I did a story on an amazing tree house near Marshalltown Iowa I was surprised you didn’tInclude that one…by the way I love your show it’s always fascinating hope you guys never leave the road.

    When i was young my friends and I didn’t have a tree house, we built a little cabin in the woods. Like a little get away from our parents so we didn’t have to do chores our parents wanted us to do . Plus it was an adventure and imagination we had in the cabin acting like we were living off the land it was awesome.

    Wow! These tree houses are amazing. Great getaway destinations. I will certainly put them on my ‘to visit’ list should I get the opportunity to visit your wonderful country.Can I just plug my home town of Stroud (I’m ‘Stroud and Proud!’) and the Cotswolds in general to you guys. Here in this part of the UK, like so many others, you can soak up the great history and hospitality we have to offer, and maybe do some picking along the way…. I look forward to your next post Mike, but in the meantime, may I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year!

    Thanks for including many different locations for Tree House rentals.
    Here in Southern Oregon there is a place with many treehouses on one site:” OutnAbout “ in Cave Junction Oregon.
    (Near the famous (Natural) “Oregon Caves”.)
    Can’t wait to try one of these Treehouse spaces.
    P.S.- WISH: Good pickings to the guys.
    Thanks for taking us along with you Mike and Frank.

    I just love to watch American Pickers!! It is my favorite show! Most of us feel like we know you guys and Danielle. I collect bottles, so whenever you guys are digging around, my eyes are looking for old bottles in the background. I would love to be able to buy some, and some of those old perfume bottles from those old drugstores (like in that house that had about 6 generations). I also enjoyed a couple houses that seemed haunted!! I watch Ghost Adventures, too and am so fascinated by those places you go. Mary M
