Nothing beats spending a night in a treehouse hotel, surrounded my nothing but forest, the fluttering or butterflies, and the sounds of birds. While some of us can remember camping out in a treehouse in our backyard, making mud pies and freezing in the cold until mom brought us some more blankets, these treehouse hotels have taken those childhood memories to the next level. Equipped with baths under the stars, four poster beds and views for days, these treehouse combine childlike nostalgia with some of the most romantic accommodation you could dream of.
