So cool. I can’t decide which one’s my favorite, although the slides might push it over the edge.
I could live in #12 forever.
A tree-house lodge where tourists can stay is found on little known Chole Island
part of the Mafi`a archipelago in the Indian Ocean off Tanzania. Access to Chole Mjini Eco-Lodge
is via a short boat ride across Chole Bay from Mafi`a (30 miles off the mainland and
accessed by daily flights).
I have another great treehouse in mind! The Chalkley Treehouse in the Lion Sands Game Reserve in South Africa is absolutely stunning and is a fantastic spot for honeymooners! With a panoramic view of South Africa’s magnificent wilderness and an open-air layout, the Chalkley Treehouse is the ultimate in romance and beauty.
#12 reminds me of Caras Galadon! How beautiful!
There is definitely still enough of the little girl left in me that I would totally live in a tree house if I could. My favorites are #10 (Costa Rica) and, um #12 – which should be #11? Revelstoke, BC. Sigh. Maybe someday.
I live in a tiny little town only a few hours from Revelstoke. It’s always nice to see my middle of nowhere get some recognition.
Lovely, I always wanted to experience staying in a tree house- these photos provide the much needed inspiration.
The two from Revelstoke are the same house and the one in Singapore isn’t a treehouse at all, its completely supported by beams instead of a tree. The one from the UK is as well but at least its trying to be a treehouse. A quick google search while writing this came up with plenty of good examples of amazing treehouses (the Disney one, really?). I love matador but there have been some pretty “lazy” articles lately.
The definition of “tree house” is pretty broad. And just because there are photos online doesn’t mean we can necessarily use them; there are commercial licensing issues that limit many photos’ reproduction. Thanks for the feedback, though.
Great pics. I recently stayed in a treehouse in France for a few nights and it was a great experience. Waking up in the middle of the forest and seeing nothing around but trees was a real treat.
I never get bored of staying in treehouses.
It’s great we have so many to choose from.
Laos here I come for the weekend…do you think my sleep walking will be a problem?
These are nothing in brazil along the amazon river there is a huge complex of tree houses that is a hotel.
This inspired me to plant a tree. In 50 years, or so, it should be big enough for me to build a house in it…
oh my god .
these project are in my heart.
please allow me that publish these treehouse in my Book.
thank you very much.
These are cool! Thanks for displaying them. Brings back memories of watching Swiss Family Robinson, lol.
When I was a little kid in the 50′s, my family took a vacation up Highway 1 in California. We went through the Redwood Forest and on the films my dad took with his movie camera, is a hollowed-out tree with a door and (I think) a window in it where supposedly some teacher had lived. It was in a Redwood so it was big in that sense, but it wasn’t built around the tree or spectacular like the ones shown here. I just remember how cool I thought that was that someone actually lived inside the tree.
The Laos tree house architectural design is my favorite. Reminds me of the movie swiss family robinson. I like tree house designs that are high up and actually liveable.
I like the one in Singapore. How fun!
