1. A Serene Stay in Serenity House

This treehouse in Tennessee is faithful to its name: Serenity House. Perfect for a weekend getaway with your loved one, this treehouse includes a lofted bedroom, kitchen and living area — but nothing compares to the huge porch with giant pine trees running through. Sit under the stars and sip on some hot chocolate while the wind sways you gently from side to side. Rates from $100 per night with a two-night minimum stay required.

2. A Fir Tree Grows Through It

You'll feel like you never left outside when you stay in this treehouse: A giant fir tree runs through the middle of the house, with sprawling branches directly over the bed. It also comes with all the essentials you'd want when staying away from home: heat, electric fireplace, a TV and a large, comfy bed. It's located on a mountain in Park City and you don't have to go far to explore; in fact, just go downstairs and you'll be in the middle of hiking and biking paths. You can also ride four-wheelers while on the lookout for wild animals. Rates from $175 per night with a two-night minimum stay.

3. The Joshua Tree(house)

This trendy treehouse in Virginia is the place for water-lovers. It's located a couple yards away from a riverbank and guests have access to kayaks to check out the waterway. If you want to explore by foot, there's tons to do aside from the wilderness. Take a hike into town for some shopping or walk to the local wineries. When you get back, turn on the tub on the porch for a cool-down (or warm-up) after a long day of exploring. Rates from $175 per night with a one-night minimum stay.

Mid-Tier ($175-$250 per night)

4. A Cabin in the Trees

This treehouse is the perfect blend of tree and house. It's on the edge of Walker Pond in Newport, Vermont and the treehouse is supported by two large white pines. Located on 40 acres of wetland and forest, there's plenty to do without having to stray far from your treehouse — and it's only five minutes from downtown Newport if you do have the itch for civilization. It's also only a nearly 20-minute drive to a local ski resort. After a long day of being out and about, visitors will want to soak in the custom-made cedar hot tub on the porch. Rates from $185 per night with a two-night minimum stay.

5. An Oasis outside the City

Once you check into this oasis, you're never going to want to leave. Seriously. It's a beautifully designed house built directly into nature. To enter this beautiful abode, just follow the footpaths below the Japanese Maples, traversing the creek that leads right to a Bauhaus-style door. The treehouse is located right outside of Dallas, so if you need a little bit of a cosmopolitan infusion, you won't have to head very far. Rates from $214 per night with a one-night minimum stay.

6. A Tropical Paradise Hidden in Bamboo

Make all your Hawaii fantasies come alive by staying in this amazing treehouse set in Fern Forest on the Big Island. Follow the red cinder trail to the front door and check out the swinging bed that hangs below it. Raised 15 feet off the ground with a wrap-around porch for optimal light, this treehouse is pretty special. You'll feel completely immersed in nature when you take a shower — using water collected from the roof! (Don't worry, you'll be in the rainforest so there should be enough water on your roof the whole time.) Rates from $200 per night with a one-night minimum stay.

7. A Modern Retreat in the Pines

You won't find anywhere else like this ... especially on a pond in the woods. Located in Willow, NY (upstate, near Woodstock), this stunning house looks like it comes straight out of the movies. It's a great space for couples or solo adventurers — or anyone who just needs to unplug from normal life. It's on a large pond and 14 acres of property and there's a hot tub that's heated by firewood near the treehouse. Rates from $325 per night with a two-night minimum stay.

The Showstopper

8. A Rustic, Urban Retreat

This treehouse, located in Atlanta, is where one comes to collect mind, body and spirit — literally. It's made up of three houses connected by footbridge (the separate houses are each appropriately named mind, body and spirit), and each house helps you become centered, wherever you need it most. This treehouse is the embodiment of Southern hospitality: gracious, calming and comfortable. What more could you ask for? Rates from $375 per night with a two-night minimum stay.

Maximize Your Purchase

There are plenty of ways to maximize your stay with points and miles. If you’ve never used Airbnb before, sign up through TPG to get $40 off your first booking — and the gravy train doesn’t stop there. Book through the Delta portal and earn 1 SkyMile for every dollar spent on your stay, and make sure to charge the purchase to a travel rewards card to rack up extra points. Using a card like the Chase Sapphire Preferred will get you 2x points on all travel purchases while the Chase Sapphire Reserve will get you 3x points on an Airbnb stay. When you combine the two, you’re effectively double-dipping with your points earning.

Why We Chose It

There’s a lot to love about the Amex Gold card. It’s been a fan favorite during the pandemic because of its fantastic rewards rate on restaurants (that includes takeout and delivery in the U.S.!) and U.S. supermarkets. If you’re hitting the skies soon, you’ll also earn bonus points on travel. Paired with up to $120 in Uber Cash (for U.S. Uber rides or Uber Eats orders) and up to $120 in annual dining statement credits at eligible partners, there’s no reason that the foodie shouldn’t add this card to their wallet. Enrollment required.

Pros

  • 4x on dining at restaurants and U.S. supermarkets (on the first $25,000 in purchases per calendar year; then 1x).
  • 3x on flights booked directly with the airline or with Amex Travel.
  • Welcome bonus of 60,000 points after spending $4,000 in the first six months.

Cons

  • Weak on travel outside of flights and everyday spending bonus categories.
  • Not as useful for those living outside the U.S.
  • Some may have trouble using Uber/food credits.
  • Few travel perks and protections.
