Tree houses aren't just for kids any more. These days, plenty of adults choose to play, stay, eat and live in homes supported by big beautiful boughs. Here are a few of the many impressive modern tree houses built for adults.
Tree House Lodge
When you visit the rain forest of Costa Rica, the Tree House Lodge is perhaps the best place to feel at-one with nature while still enjoying the creature comforts of a full kitchen and bathroom. The tree house is split into two levels, offering a small half-bathroom and a king size bed upstairs and a double bed, a single bed and a kitchen downstairs. The in-tree structures let you feel like you are truly living inside the forest, while screens will make sure you're sheltered from bugs while you sleep. With a space this open, you never know who might stop by for breakfast -perhaps even a local sloth.
The furniture and structures are all made from sustainable wood culled from local trees that have naturally fallen.
Tree House Point
As you may be able to guess from the name, Tree House Point is a forest retreat that features a number of tree houses for rent. Cabins range from snug and cozy to spacious and private and each one is as unique as the trees they are built upon. The two-story Trillium is particularly impressive with massive windows lining the top and bottom floors.
