20 Amazing Treehouse Vacation Getaways
Treehouses are an alternative way to get away for those who love the great outdoors. Many offer all the amenities of a standard hotel, but guests get to sleep high off the ground in the middle of nature. Treehouse accommodations vary in levels of luxury -- some have hot tubs included, while some require a trip to a communal bathhouse. Most of these scenic treehouses around the world are affordable getaways for budget-conscious vacationers. But some are more luxurious options worth sharing just to show what's possible. Daydream away.
For outdoorsy types who love the idea of being alone in the wilderness, Spruce Mountain Fire Lookout Tower in Medicine Bow National Forest in Wyoming might just fill the bill. Originally a fire lookout, the treehouse is now available for overnight rentals for $40 a night. Don't expect luxury -- the bathroom is an outhouse, a pulley and rope helps pull gear up to the tower, and there is no water or electricity available at the site. Guests must bring enough water for drinking, cooking, and washing.
