Traveling green is the new way to go. Taking your hybrid or electric car across the country to star at an eco-friendly resort in the Continental United States can be a fun vacation for all ages. But what about those special times when you and your mate want to spend the night someplace really wild and out of the ordinary? Consider renting a luxury tree home for an overnight stay or a long holiday weekend — or booking a bungalow at one of the world-famous treehouse hotels.
If you only have a weekend, there one resort in particular called TreeHouse Point that shares pictures of their facilities architecture and interior design buffs won’t want to miss. Located in Issaquah, Washington, the staff describes the unique get-away spot as an, “intimate alternative for individuals and groups who seek comfort and style in friendly and natural surroundings.”
When it came to dreaming up ideal treehouse settings for adult play, the owners seemed to spare no expense or attention to detail. As they say in their literature, “All accommodations are well designed and artfully decorated, with touches like handmade beds, original art and charming vintage furnishings…”, with most units reflecting a rustic Pacific Northwest look one would expect to find staying at the finest log cabin home or private rental.
The unique venue would be the perfect spot for a CEO’s Summer vacation retreat, a Spring wedding honeymoon for newlyweds, or a blissful anniversary trip for a married couple or domestic partners in the Fall.

Once you are ready to invest some serious cash and time traveling internationally, consider reserving a treehouse bungalow in a rainforest. Other fine treehouse hotels can be found around the world.
Although few and far between, if you are looking for a unique vacation spot these ecotels are worth finding out about from your go green travel agent.
Some other notable international travel choices for your tree hotel stays are:
- The Ariau Amazon Towers Hotel, outside Manaus in the Brazilian Amazon, is a resort devoted to allowing gusts an exquisite view of the jungle canopy in their local rain forest.
- The Costa Rica Tree House Lodge in in Limón boasts efficiency apartment – like suites nestled into a 100-year-old Sangrillo tree.
- The Tranquil Resort in southern India, located on a working coffee and vanilla plantation; guest stays frequently include reports of Howler monkeys joining them at night and in the baths for what some guests call “monkey business” unlike any other place they have seen.
As Travel and Leisure magazine says, “Modern treehouses offer more than quiet or the chance to indulge a little youthful daring; they present a rare opportunity to drive past the McResort and break free of travel’s predicable stops and well-traveled routes. Up in the leaves, you’ll find something unique and exceptional—surely the reward of any good journey.”
