Sure, we’ve all dreamed about living in a treehouse as kids, but how many of us have actually thought to bring that dream to fruition? As it turns out, more than a few clever minds have followed through with those dreams, creating everything from teahouse treehouses to treehouse communities. So take a breather from the hustle and bustle of the urban landscape and check out a few of the coolest treehouses in the world.
Finca Bellavista- Costa Rica. Forget the beach and take your next vacation at Finca Bellavista in Costa Rica, where you’ll find a fully sustainable community of treehouses sprawling across 600 acres of the Costa Rican rainforest. A transportation network trails through the treetop canopy high off the ground, and you can look down and catch a view of two rushing whitewater rivers.
Treehotel- Sweden. Ultramodern design meets the great outdoors just a short drive from Lulea, Sweden, where the Treehotel overlooks the pristine Swedish countryside. The idea was inspired by “The Tree Lover,” a movie about three men longing to rediscover their roots by building a treehouse together. But what really sets this treehouse apart are its mirrored exterior walls, making the hotel somewhat difficult to find amongst the towering snow-capped pines.
Minister’s Treehouse- Crossville, TN. This 5-story, 80-room treehouse mansion towers in the rustic outskirts of Crossville, Tennessee, held up by a mere seven trees, including one massive 80-foot tall American Oak. Built by Minister Horace Burgess, the idea for the world’s largest treehouse came to Burgess back in 1993, when he said that he received a message from God. Outdoor porches circle every story, and a bell tower caps this architectural masterpiece. It even has a mini basketball court on the 3rd floor.
Teahouse Tetsu- Yamanashi, Japan. Perched amongst flowering cherry blossoms is Teahouse Tetsu, both a teahouse and treehouse. It’s traditional, yet minimalist, and the simple interior gives you a chance to enjoy the tranquil bliss of the cherry blossom orchard from a bird’s eye view.
The Hemloft- Whistler, Canada. Looking at the gorgeous wood grain of this floating orb-shaped treehouse, you wouldn’t think that The Hemloft was made from recycled materials found for free online. It has an outdoor deck, a loft to sleep in, and even has skylight windows that pop open. Unfortunately, the future of The Hemloft is uncertain, as it was built in the middle of the Whistler Forest on public property.
Sure, a dog’s life seems pretty sweet, but the fact is that they live the same routine every single day. Eat, play, sleep, eat, sleep, walk—a monotonous lifestyle like that would drive us humans up the wall. Besides, your beloved pup deserves the best, so we’ve listed five awesome public places where you and your canine can chill.
