Treehouse Utopia in Texas Hill Country is the outcome of a partnership between Pete Nelson and Laurel Waters, chef and owner of The Laurel Tree Restaurant. With its four rentable, private treehouses and natural splendor, this romantic retreat exudes magic.

Treehouse Utopia has four luxury treehouses: Chapelle, Chateau, Carousel, and Biblioteque. All are supported by magnificent cypress trees.

Treehouses at Treehouse Utopia

The treehouses range from 400 to 580 square feet and come with most amenities of a modern hotel stay, including electric lighting, hot and cold running water, heating and air conditioning, toilets, tiled showers, and high-speed WiFi.

With their prodigious scope and artful architecture, these four represent the culmination of Pete's 30 years of experience designing and building the most fantastical treehouses around the world.

The treehouses' French names come from Laurel Waters’ love of France. Laurel studied cuisine at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris, worked in fine dining restaurants in Provence, and personally collected French antiques for the interiors of the treehouses.

Each treehouse has a distinct character; read on for an overview.


Chapelle is divine, with soaring ceilings and twin Gothic windows overlooking sunrise and sunset. Its enormous bathroom, complete with a clawfoot tub and tiled shower, is a spa-like sanctuary. You can take our photo tour of Chapelle, here.

Biblioteque wraps around a single cypress tree. It's designed like a cozy library, with walls of built-in bookcases and ultra-comfy reading nooks.
