Treehouse Getaway

I recently booked a stay in a treehouse for my husbands 50th birthday. I LOVE finding things to surprise him with and it gets more difficult all the time because he has such a sense of adventure and has already done so many things. What better thing to do for a milestone birthday, than to go live in a treehouse?! I kept it a secret until we turned down the road that leads back to the beautiful treehouse tucked away in the trees. Success! He loved it and we had such an amazing little getaway.

For unusual and out of the way stays I always head straight to Airbnb. We are long-time users of Airbnb and have had the pleasure to meet so many interesting people and stay in some of the most magnificent and unusual places over the years. If you’ve never used Airbnb, I highly recommend that you check it out right away! If you go through my link here, you can even snag $40 off of your first booking.They have stays for almost every budget.

This particular treehouse was featured in Season 3 of The Treehouse Guys and it definitely did NOT disappoint! Not only is it absolutely lovely but every small bit of space has been so thoughtfully used. As you climb the beautifully carved, grand, outside staircase to the entrance, you can already feel such a sense of magic and curiosity pulling you inside. As we entered the house, it seriously took my breath away. It’s open and light with a beautifully eclectic decor.


Every single comfort you could possibly want has been thought of. From a flat-screen TV to complete wifi capability, a full kitchen, and a beautifully tiled full bath, there is no roughing it in this luxury treehouse.





For me, the real star of this house was in the design. The house has 2 living trees that grow up through the house and continue on up through the roof and branch out over the house.




They are unencumbered and allowed to flow freely. When the wind blows outside, the tree trunks sway gracefully within the house. I could NEVER tire of watching it. This feature makes the entire treehouse feel alive and really gives you a sense of being “in the trees”. There are 2 more trees that grow through the outside decks of the house in the same way.

The inside spiral staircase leads upstairs to the comfortable bedroom and upper deck.








The house is climate controlled and was extremely well insulated and cozy. I highly recommend sleeping in the trees if you get the chance. We slept SO well and the next morning, slipping out onto the upper deck with a cup of coffee in the peace and quiet that surrounds this treehouse was heavenly.







This Montana treehouse is minutes from the breathtaking Glacier National Park, as well as the resort town of Whitefish with loads of dining options and more outdoor activities.




Winston was a huge fan of the Montana Treehouse Retreat. (Yay! Well mannered pets are welcome!)




To have a lovely getaway, you really don’t have to spend a lot of money or even go very far! Grab your sense of adventure and check out the offerings on Airbnb. If a treehouse adventure seems like your kind of thing, they even have a filter for “treehouse” on Airbnb! There are options for every budget and we’ve never had a bad experience in all the years we’ve been booking with them. And don’t forget- if you use this link you can get $40 off your first booking.

If you’re even thinking about booking and there are available dates- just do it! You won’t regret it and I would imagine this little gem is going to become very popular as more people find out about it.  You can also check out a little video tour of this treehouse on my Facebook Page here.

    I use to watch the man on TV that builds the Treehouses. It is interesting to see them build them.
