Nestled 18 feet high in a grove of oak trees, this treehouse is the ultimate relaxation retreat. Outside, the treehouse features a spacious wraparound deck and bathroom with running water. The inside holds an airy living room, kitchenette, and cozy bedroom loft. Lots of exposed wood, handcrafted elements, and an indoor and outdoor fireplace give the treehouse a rustic elegance.
