TREE HOUSES FOR ADULTS
Categories: TinyHouse, Homes / Dwellings
Growing up as little boys, we dreamed of having the coolest tree house on the block. A secret fort where we did nothing but…well things that little boys do. We would read comic books, trade Upper Deck baseball cards, and there was only one rule; the golden rule really: no girls allowed. These days we’d probably amend that rule, but growing up, it was what we lived by.
While the rules of our tree house may have changed with age, the desire for owning one has not. Ironically enough, the reasons we still want a tree house as an adult are still fueled by all of the same needs. We are looking for a place where we can get away from the hustle and bustle of our daily lives, our own personal place to escape. A small space to once again connect with our roots, connect with nature. We’re here to let you know that you don’t have to give up on those childhood dreams of owning the ultimate tree house. In fact there are many people living that exact dream throughout the world already. To help inspire you to get started on building your elevated sanctuary, we’ve scoured the depths of the interwebs to compile a list of the 18 greatest tree houses on the planet – in no particular order.
1. RUSTIC TREEHOUSE CABIN IN COLORADO
One of our personal favorites on the list, this elevated cabin was designed by architect Missy Brown with adults in mind. The treehouse is located in the mountains of Vail, and includes an awesome rooftop patio – perfect for enjoying a summer time beer.
2. Treehouse Point Washington
Located in Issaquah, Washington, Treehouse point is technically a treehouse hotel. There are several different accommodations scattered throughout the property, and you can’t go wrong with any of them.
3. SECRET HEMLOFT TREEHOUSE IN WHISTLER
Located in the woods of Whistler, B.C., this treehouse was considered a secret. That is until Joel Allen’s creation experienced worldwide fame on the internet. Allen used nothing but free materials he sourced from Craigslist to build this beauty.
4. TOM’S TREEHOUSE IN WISCONSIN
Part of Wisconsin’s Wandawega resort, this three story cottage was designed for guests looking to experience the great outdoors. It’s got everything from an upstairs reading nook and chandelier antlers to an outdoor deck and hammock, all wrapped around an old elm tree.
5. FINCA BELLAVISTA SUSTAINABLE TREEHOUSE IN COSTA RICA
This sustainable community spans over 600 acres in Costa Rica. All 25 structures on the property are connected by a series of suspension bridges.
