Our Top 5 Tree Houses in the U.S.

By Nadia Yasmine

We know that there is no accommodation more sought after than a good, old-fashioned tree house, and at Glamping Hub, we’re certainly spoiled for choice. We see the best of the best on a daily basis, so narrowing it down to just five was a tall order.

High up in the tree tops, these accommodations reignite childhood playfulness, evoke memories of bedtime stories, and days out playing in the woods. Long before iPads and video games, tree houses were things of make-believe and adventure—Peter Pan, Swallows and Amazons, a trip into Wonderland, and all those other childhood stories that we all think we are a bit too old to reenact.

We live by the mantra that a tree house is not just for kids, and we think that you should, too. Get your backpacks ready and picnics packed...we’re going on an adventure!

1. The Luna Loft Tree House near the Appalachian Mountains, Georgia

The immaculate finish of both the interior and exterior, with the addition of luxury amenities and fittings, set this accommodation a cut above the rest!

This tree house is more Swiss Family Robinson, nestled in the rainforest and surrounded by banana trees, with exotic birds in the treetops—it doesn’t really get more magical than this! Hawaii isn’t quite Guinea, but we think it’s pretty darn exotic!

5. Romantic Tree House near Chattanooga in North Georgia

Sadly, all good things must come to an end, and back we go. Our round trip concludes in Georgia once more—but not without one last stop on this magical journey through the trees.

One could be mistaken in thinking we were already back to adult life, sipping a coffee in a chic apartment with cutting-edge interior design fit for any young professional. Well…not quite yet.

This stylish accommodation can be found suspended in the high treetops, with stunning views of Chattanooga. Who says we have to grow up quite yet?
