The Treehouse at the Escape must be one of the most creative vacation treehouse rentals we’ve seen yet.

When a one-hundred-year-old cottonwood tree died, the owners decided to preserve the trunk and build a treehouse 16 feet off the ground. Even more unique, they hollowed out the tree trunk and placed a hobbit door at the bottom entrance where adventurous visitors can climb (think ‘rock wall style’) inside the tree trunk and up to the rental. Don’t worry, though; exterior stairs will make carrying in your belongings much more effortless.

The interior boasts a rustic feel with comfort in mind. Once inside, you’ll find a full-sized bathroom, a king-sized bed, a kitchenette with a two-burner cooktop, and a pull-out sofa to sleep extra guests. Large picture windows let in expansive views of Sugar Knoll plateau, while stargazing is easy, right from your bed.

Rounding out the space is a full kitchen, living room, two queen beds, and a pull-out couch, allowing room for 6. Staying on the farm offers endless hiking opportunities right out your front door.
