No Girls Allowed! These Are the World’s Coolest Treehouse Hotels

worlds coolest tree house hotels the 7th room
Few experiences scream “I’m a kid again!” like sleeping in a treehouse. Almost every man has childhood memories of hanging a “No Girls Allowed” sign and reading comic books by flashlight into the wee hours in a friend’s treehouse. Thankfully, you can now relive that adolescent joy at some of the world’s coolest treehouse hotels. Here are just five of our favorites:

Dove Men+Care (Chattanooga, Tennessee)

Dove Men+Care was so stoked to promote their new, nature-inspired Men+Care Elements product line that they built an entire treehouse just outside of Chattanooga to celebrate it. They even brought in renowned Treehouse Master, Pete Nelson, to architect the project. The 300-ish square feet and modern amenities of this “apartment in the trees” are a far cry from the rustic, postage stamp-sized treehouses of our youth. Features include a queen-sized Tuft & Needle bed, a loft with over-sized skylights for stargazing, a wet bar, air-conditioning, and — the pièce de résistance — a beautiful spa bathroom with heated pebble stone flooring and a glass, touchscreen-controlled, five-jet shower stall with a tree growing through the center. First glimpses of the treehouse were available via a contest held earlier this year. Treetop Hideaways — owners of the treehouse — will officially debut it to the public later this year on Airbnb.

Treehotel (Sweden)

Tree Hotel UFO Tree House
The UFO/Tree Hotel

Where most treehouse hotels embrace their rustic, primitive surroundings, Sweden’s Treehotel is an altogether different animal. The boutique hotel features seven ultra-modern guestrooms that collectively feel like a living art installation in the woods. Every room is distinctly different from every other with unique themes that range from kitschy (The UFO) to otherworldly (The Mirrorcube) to MOMA-worthy (The 7th room). As extreme as the rooms may seem, the property is purposefully designed as a relaxed, minimalist escape into nature. Its location in the tiny, rural town of Harads (population: 600), just 30 miles south of the Arctic Circle, succeeds in doing just that. Indeed, its most notable “amenities” are the beautiful, endless stands of pine trees and lovely views of the Lule River.

Reserva Biológica Huilo Huilo (Chile)

Reserva Biológica Huilo Huilo is among Chile’s most prized forests. It’s a 232-square-mile reserve that even won National Geographic’s coveted World Legacy Award for conservation. In the middle of this remote outpost sits Nothofagus Hotel & Spa. Most treehouse hotels offer a sprawl of individual cabins interconnected by a labyrinth of catwalks and cables. But Nothofagus is a single, unique seven-story structure where many rooms feature private balconies, towering windows, and breathtaking views of the Patagonian Andes range. You may not want to call it “glamping” but, with available Wi-Fi, two onsite restaurants, and a luxury spa, that’s exactly what it is.

Free Spirit Spheres (Vancouver Island, British Columbia)

The tiny, three-“room” Free Spirit Spheres “hotel” definitely wins the award for the most unusual treehouse accommodations. These “suspended spherical treehouses” are actually large, wooden spheres each named — in true British Columbia fashion — with crunchy, Earth Mama names (Eryn, Even, and Melody). Instead of standing on a typical scaffolding of wood and steel, the spheres hang like giant pendulums from a network of cables. A stay here is equal parts terrifying and awesome.

Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica Canopy Tree House (Peru)

At the single Canopy Tree House at Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica, you’ll have the space among the treetops all to yourself. Connected to the main building of the Inkaterra resort by a quarter-mile long suspension bridge, the private treehouse offers rustic luxury accommodations more than 70 feet above the forest floor. Like the main hotel space, the treehouse maintains the local Ese-Eja design, including a thatched roof and hardwood floors. House guests have the privilege of butler service via walkie-talkie, a private nighttime canopy tour, and observing unique wildlife among the trees that isn’t otherwise visible from below.
