It’s by no surprise that the Pacific Northwest is home to a number of iconic tree houses available for rent. These rentals can be found on AirBNB and hipcamp. Many treehouses are so popular they will book one to two years out, so be sure to plan accordingly! They are booked out and popular for a reason, so don’t let that get in the way of planning your unique stay in a treehouse.
For treehouses, it is important to note that many won’t have a full kitchen, so prepare food ahead of time or bring your cooking stove for camping along with everything else you may need. Most treehouses will be found in more rural areas with less access to restaurants.
Being a travel blogger, I have fallen in love with treehouse rentals in the Pacific Northwest. Especially during the pandemic, renting properties like this became an obsession that was within arms reach for me. Luckily for you, I have stayed in all of these treehouses and will share with you my experiences and hopefully inspire you to book one yourself.
Every treehouse I have stayed in is close to hiking, which makes it an even better experience for me! Let’s rate my top 5 favorite rentals.
- Heartland Treehouse-that one treehouse with the outdoor bathtubs. Yes, you heard right. Outdoor bathtubs. So good I went back here with my husband after staying with a girlfriend. I would consider this a glamping stay as the outdoor composting toilet and outdoor shower may not be for everybody. The indoor bedroom is very comfortable and is heated for colder rainy days. The outdoor bathtubs are heated with propane and are quite lovely to sit in on rainy days. No wifi and very private!
- Out n’ About Treehouse Resort: picture yourself at this treehouse paradise, an adult playground! Located in Southern Oregon this property has over 5 different treehouses that you can rent. Some of them were connected by suspension bridges, which was our favorite part. We stayed in the MajesTree, the nicest and biggest one there, with a flushing toilet and everything. Be sure to call them directly to book as they prefer not to list their treehouses on AirBNB.
- The Pond Perch: this treehouse has its own pond beneath it! It was truly so comfortable and perfect for a fall adventure. There are two beds, which made it perfect for me and a girlfriend to share the treehouse. Plus, a flushing toilet in a treehouse is always nice! The location of this treehouse is at the base of the North Cascades, making it the perfect location for summer and fall hiking. Looking for a trip itinerary? See what we did here.
- Vertical Horizons Treehouse Paradise – located in Southern Oregon this treehouse paradise built by the homeowner has 4 treehouses to choose from. We stayed in the largest one on the property, the Excalifer. It really felt more like a cabin than anything else. With two stories, a flushing toilet, and shower, and comfortable beds upstairs, it was truly well done and quite nice inside. The homeowner’s property is the view of this treehouse, so if you’re looking for more privacy, I would book another treehouse on the property as this one is right in the middle.
- The Bluebird House-Located in Gold Beach along the southern Oregon coastline, this treehouse rates high for me because of the location. Southern Oregon coast is truly one of the most beautiful places along the coast, especially Brookings! You can hear the ocean breeze from this treehouse, and watch the sunset. Plus, there is a full bathroom!
