A treehouse is a unique kind of accommodation built around or in support of a tree or a perch of trees. The inhabitants live like a bird and can see amazing views above the trees.
Each treehouse is different and has particular space restrictions. So, the amenities in a treehouse may vary depending on the property, but they often include basic necessities like bedding, bathroom and outdoor deck. While most of the treehouses are designed with nature and privacy in mind, there are some properties that may also offer additional amenities like Wi-Fi, TV, and outdoor area.
Generally, treehouses are safe to stay in, as they are built to meet safety standards and regulations. These structures are cleverly engineered and properly constructed to support significant weight.
Treehouses are built high above the ground so the risk is always there for children. There are many family-friendly treehouse hotels and rentals that welcome guests of all ages.
Think of a treehouse as a tiny dwelling with a small living room, kitchen and sleeping area. It may accommodate 2-4 persons depending on the property.
