📍The Mirror Cube, Harads, Sweden 📆 November 2016

Located just outside the tiny village of Harad in the unspoiled pine forest, this eclectic wonderland of treetop suites awaits. Beautifully designed by some of Sweden’s leading architects, guests will be wowed by the uniquely designed treehouses. Boasting 7 diverse rooms — one resembling a bird nest while another looks like a UFO — each room is suspended between 13 – 19 feet off the ground and all are equipped with Wi-Fi. Guests will find no shortage of adventures year-round in the surrounding area. Kayaking on the Lule River in the summer and dogsledding tours in the winter are just a few of the activities available to enjoy. The Treehotel is perfect for architect and nature lovers alike.


Don’t miss out on a traditional Swedish dish at Britta’s Pensionat — a quaint mid-century restaurant with cozy couches, a fireplace and a bar.

2. Treehouse Lodge — Limón, Costa Rica

This dreamy property situated on 10-acres within the Gandoc-Manzanillo Wildlife Refuge on Costa Rica’s Caribbean coast is a sloth-lovers fantasy. Among the 5 different dwellings to choose from is the sustainably built treehouse wrapped around a 100–year–old Sangrillo tree. Spend your days at the nearby Punta Uva beach or swinging in a hammock while keeping an eye out for those adorably lazy creatures of the jungle.


Take the opportunity to revel in Costa Rica’s laid-back vibe by signing up for a yoga or tae bo class offered on the property.

3. Free Spirit Spheres — Vancouver Island, Canada


Open year-round in the coastal rainforest near Qualicum Beach on Vancouver Island is a unique experience you won’t soon forget. Three handcrafted orbs — Eve, Erin and Melody — decorate the sky in what can only be described as an enchanted forest. Free Spirit Spheres is the perfect sanctuary for artists, musicians and writers to work on their craft among the peaceful tranquility of Mother Nature.


If you want to spice up your stay, visit the Horne Lake Caves, located about a 15-minute drive from the Free Spirit Spheres. Book a tour to explore Vancouver’s vast underworld. Varying adventure levels are available.

Outdoor enthusiasts, this one’s for you! Located at “The Falls” on the North Fork of the White River in the Missouri Ozarks, this 350-acre property has several fully equipped treehouse and lodging options. A truly unique place to bring your entire family away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Fly-fishing, horseback riding, lazy canoe trips, and my personal fave — the Laura Ingalls Wilder Museum (located less than an hour away in Mansfield) — will keep everyone entertained and ensure that the whole gang has a great time.


Parents, be sure to book yourselves a riverfront therapeutic massage with the onsite masseuse. You deserve it.

5. The Gibbon Experience — Huay Xai, Laos

Monkeying around the jungle this week

Calling all conservationists and adventure junkies! The Gibbon Experience needs to be the next addition to your bucket list. With some of the world’s tallest treehouses built overlooking the Bokeo forest canopy, you will have a front row seat to the habitat of the once thought extinct black-cheeked gibbon. Local guides will lead you on daily treks and on zip-lines through the jungle to a series of the towering bungalows where you will spend up to two nights. The Gibbon Experience is dedicated to reforestation and sustainable agriculture, making this an adventure that packs a lot of punch.


Make sure to pack your mosquito repellent and be ready to encounter leeches. A small price to pay for this once in a lifetime experience.

6. Chateaux Dans les Arbres — Bergerac, France

For those of you who love a good fairy tale, this enchanting treehouse hotel located in the French countryside will be your cup of tea. With castle-like treehouses and floating cabins lovingly designed after French chateaus, these magical dwellings are fit for a king and queen. The accommodations are romantic, luxurious, and all include a private hot tub.


Order the dine-in 3-course menu during your stay. You won’t regret it!

7. Treehouse Lodge — Iquitos, Peru

Home away from home in the Peruvian Amazon.

This all-inclusive treehouse resort will leave you breathless. Located in the canopy of the Amazon rainforest near the Yarapa and Cumaceba rivers, guests can choose from several different vacation packages. Experience Machu Picchu, Monkey Island or the Sacred Valley of the Incas during the day and watch for monkeys while listening to birds singing in the evening. Each house in the sky is fully functional with showers, sinks and bathrooms, giving you a truly comfortable stay — and, of course, one that you will never forget.


For an authentic Peruvian experience, visit the nearby village of Puerto Miguel and interact with the local people who have held onto their traditional way of life, including their language.

For an adults-only romantic getaway, look no further than this charming property in the Pacific Northwest. There are six beautifully designed treehouses tucked into the forest and surrounded by Raging River. Guests will undoubtedly reconnect with nature by visiting nearby Snoqualmie Falls or enjoying the hiking trails, which are plentiful. For a more relaxing stay, guests can take part in tai chi or yoga classes on-site.


A continental breakfast is provided but there is no cooking allowed on-site so be sure to come equipped with an ice chest filled with prepared meals or head into one of the nearby towns for your meals.
