Treehotel

That striking creation you’re looking above is a room in the Treehotel in Sweden. How awesome is that? Treehotel has six treehouse rooms, each with a completely different concept and design. The room above is called the Mirrorcube, and is by far my favorite.

Aside from the modern high-design aesthetic of the structures, the concept of the hotel is based around a complete retreat-to-nature approach, eschewing even snowmobile tours for their noise in favor of guided nature hikes. With the location in Lapland, 60km south of the Arctic Circle, guests are able to experience not only the surrounding nature, but also the phenomenon of midnight sun in summer and the Northern Lights in winter. You’re already staying in a treehouse, and then you add an experience like that, and really the whole thing could not get more surreal!

The Minister’s Treehouse

One day in 1993, Horace Burgess, a minister in Crossville, TN, received a message from God that if he built Him a treehouse, he would never run out of materials.

So Burgess started building a treehouse that almost twenty years later would end up ten stories tall and only cost him around $12,000. All of the wood was salvaged, and the structure is built around 7 trees that act as supports. Burgess worked on it as he found materials, stopping and starting as supplies or time allowed.

Visitors report that the rambling structure reflects this stop-and-go construction method, with hallways ending in sheer drop-offs because there aren’t walls at the end, or floors ending suddenly at ladders, which leads me to wonder how on earth this thing was built, and is operated (about 500 tourists a week), without being anywhere near up to code, but honestly that’s got to make visiting it a whole lot more fun.

Treehouse Point

If you always wanted a treehouse and didn’t have the kind of dad who was into building things (Dad, I promise that is not a slight towards you), now you can live out your treehouse dreams for a few nights at Treehouse Point, a treehouse hotel outside of Seattle.  How enchanting does this look?  This forest looks like the ideal treehouse setting!

Treehouses

Love these incredible treehouses…
Aren’t they the fulfillment of all your childhood tree house daydreams?
Maybe my favorite interior shot from the book– love that the tree is coming through the wall, the cozy built-in nook, the bookshelf, the totally simple cushion and pillows…

Another great looking built-in sofa… those pillows and the cushion in the simple ticking stripe look perfectly casual and comfortable.
A super posh one!!  It has a chandelier!
Love the awning windows on this one, and the gingham pillows.
