You may have gone camping under the stars, but have you ever gone glamping in the treetops? It’s one sure way to find tranquility, privacy and fun in a unique experience that will make memories for a lifetime with friends and family. Here is just a sampling of some of the treehouses available for your next big adventure.
TreeLoft at BaseCamp
Nestled in the woods of a 120-acre farm, you’ll find TreeLoft at BaseCamp, perfect for a romantic getaway. This luxury treehouse for two features a gas fireplace, skylight over the king size bed for night sky gazing, with a remote solar shade to keep you sleeping in the morning hours, a rain shower, soaking tub and plush robes. The kitchen offers an indoor/outdoor coffee bar and small appliances for all cooking needs. Outside is a hot tub amongst the towering Eastern Red Cedar trees, with a separate deck for grilling, and a firepit.
The owners say it is their hope that upon your stay you will be reconnected to nature and to the one you came with. “We created the TreeLoft with an inspired state of mind, and we are hopeful that the same inspiration will be experienced and reflected during your stay. There is very limited cellphone service, no WIFI or television at the TreeLoft with intention to truly allow our guests the authentic experience of disconnecting. Slow down, breathe deep, nurture and hopefully, just maybe, you’ll leave more awake to the life you must step back into.”
Sunset Tree House
If you want to enjoy a secluded location in the countryside, yet be only minutes away from downtown Hermann, MO, you’ll want to go glamping at Sunset Tree House.
The main level has a beautiful built-in lounging area surrounded by windows, a dining room area with microwave, Keurig and mini fridge, and a bathroom with shower. The sleeping loft is cozy, completely surrounded by windows, and a queen size bed. The front deck, with its comfy chairs, is the perfect place to relax and enjoy nature, while the sunset can be enjoyed from the back deck.
A bit more rustic, but charming, and nestled in the trees alongside Big Creek in the Missouri Ozarks is Almost Heaven. It includes a queen bed and sitting area and will also accommodate a queen-size air mattress. Bathroom facilities are located adjacent to the treehouse. The cabin has a large deck and a swinging bridge to a smaller deck where you can sit and listen to the beautiful creek and watch wildlife. A few steps away is a covered pavilion with kitchen facilities and a large fire pit. Located near Eminence, the treehouse is close to Echo Bluff State Park, Current River State Park, Round Spring and Alley Spring.
Robbers Roost Treehouse
This magical tree house is nestled among the oaks and sycamores on the beautiful 200-acre Sundance Ranch, near Kansas City. It’s surrounded by gorgeous limestone bluffs and a 15-acre private lake with a sand beach perfect for fishing, swimming, kayaking or paddle boarding. It features a queen bed, sitting area, two verandas and a large fire pit. While the treehouse does not have indoor plumbing, there is a cute wooden outhouse just down the stairs with a clean, modern composting toilet and sink. The Ranch is five minutes from historic downtown Excelsior Springs and Excelsior Springs Golf Course.
