Discover 7 Eco-Friendly Luxury Treehouses You Will Love To Stay In ⇒ Every little kid dreams of having a treehouse in his backyard but, unfortunately, not every child can fulfil that wish. But here at CovetED, we want to show how you can achieve that dream as an adult with these incredible 7 eco-friendly luxury treehouses where you can spend some dreamy vacations!
It doesn’t matter how old you are, it’s never too late to satisfy your adventurous spirit. And that’s why treehouses have been built around the world for visitors to enjoy staying in for an extended period of time. From the shores of Jamaica at Tensing Pen to the treehouses only accessible via zip-line at the Gibbon Experience in Laos, eco-friendly luxury treehouses span across many different continents.
Treehouse suites in Chewton Glen, U.K.
Situated in the New Forest National Park in Chewton Glen, the Treehouse Suites are suspended 35 feet above ground and offer room service with a curated dining experience, served in a picnic basket–style. While you eat, feel free to enjoy the sunlight and views thanks to the suite’s floor-to-ceiling windows. The property is also well-stocked in amenities, which include a nine-hole par three golf course, croquet lawn, indoor and outdoor tennis courts, and a spa on the grounds.
Tensing Pen in Negril, Jamaica
Tensing Pen offers four treehouses, called “The Pillars.” Each suite is made from hand-carved wood, thatch, bamboo, and stone, then mounted high off the ground with views of Negril’s cliffs and turquoise waters. There’s also open-air dining, a pool, ocean swimming, and cliff diving. Continental breakfast is served daily in the main dining house, where you can experience the local flavours of tropical fruit, Blue Mountain coffee, cereals, toast, and local jams.
Nature Observatorio in Manzanillo, Costa Rica
If you have an adventurous spirit, then you’ll love Nature Observatorio, since it requires a guided hike through the Gandoca-Manzanillo Wildlife Refuge. Located 82 feet above the ground, the two-story treehouse accessible only by rope is equipped with hammocks, beanbags, an eco-toilet, and a glass shower. The eco-friendly luxury treehouses functions with rainwater and solar power and the terrace views of the canopy give way to spotting wildlife like toucans, monkeys, and sloths.
The Gibbon Experience in Bokeo, Laos
The Bokeo Forest in Laos is home to some of the world’s highest treehouses, and The Gibbon Experience has seven of them, accessible via zip-line. Guests walk through the forest and then climb and brave a zip-line in order to stay in a new treehouse each night. The architectural diversity of the treehouses can be seen in the type of tree they are made on. Food is brought in via zip-line as you move to a new treehouse each night.
Skamania Lodge in Stevenson, Washington
Located 45 miles east of Portland, Oregon, Skamania Lodge is an all-season, 175-acre mountain resort. The property’s 20-foot-high treehouses were designed by Seattle-based architecture firm MG2. They gave the treehouses a rustic energy, with a fireplace for cosy nights, king bed, and a nook double bed with a curtain that can separate the two. Portland-based Ankrom Moisan included custom-made hand-tufted wool rugs and beds and nooks with custom-made Pendleton blankets. Some of the amenities include an on-site Waterleaf Spa, hiking trails, and the 18-hole Skamania Lodge Golf Course.
Inkaterra Canopy Treehouse near Puerto Maldonado, Peru
Located deep in the Peruvian Amazon, the Canopy Treehouse at Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica is an eco-luxury lodge located in front of the Madre de Dios River. Built on a private platform 85 feet high, you trek over the canopy walkway (a suspended bridge) and enter luxe accommodations equipped with two beds, windows with removable mosquito netting, and a drop-leaf table with wooden folding chairs. See Amazonian wildlife through the binoculars provided in-room and order food by way of a 24-hour canopy butler.
Winvian Farm in Litchfield Hills, Connecticut
Located just two hours away from New York City, Winivan Farm features the Treehouse Cottage, a two-story eco-friendly luxury treehouse suspended 35 feet in the air, with two fireplaces, a bedroom, sitting area, and wet bar on the second floor. The Connecticut-based property has menu items that change daily and feature ingredients fresh from the three-acre farm on-site. Some of the amenities include a 5,000-square-foot spa, the adjacent 5,000-acre White Memorial Conservation, or canoe and kayak on nearby Bantam Lake. An onsite pool overlooking the gardens is open from spring through autumn.
