A vacation may be a time to relax and site-see in a faraway location, but for many it’s also an opportunity to experience a night’s stay in a place much different from their own house. Whether it’s more luxurious, scenic, rustic, or fantastic, your pick of hotel can be a vacation all its own.
It’s no wonder then that several vacationers skip the typical accommodations and opt for something a little more unusual, such as staying the night in an elegant tree house high above the ground. Here are some of the best tree house hotels in America.
The Grand Treehouse Resort (Eureka Springs, AK) – This resort offers travelers some of the most beautifully decorated tree house accommodations. At The Grand Treehouse Resort, each tree house is unique but still luxurious, and the forest setting brings a feeling of a return to nature sought by many city escapees.
