While there are plenty of reasons to visit the state of Georgia, spending some time in Atlanta surely ranks near the top. The city’s infectious mix of Southern character, food, and history make it a great pick for vacations and staycations alike. Creating memories in Atlanta is best done by staying in an Airbnb, as they’re very often more than just a place to sleep. Whether you’re after luxury rentals in Atlanta or an Airbnb in Downtown Atlanta, there’s no kind of vacation that Airbnb can’t help you with.
To ensure that these are indeed the best Airbnbs in Atlanta, only properties with superhosts and/or those who are part of Airbnb Plus have been selected. In case you’re unfamiliar, superhosts are Airbnb hosts recognized for their well-reviewed service and accommodation. Airbnb Plus, on the other hand, are exclusive Airbnbs that have been verified through in-person inspections to ensure their accuracy.
Secluded Intown Treehouse
The idea of staying in a treehouse Airbnb in Atlanta may seem a little out there, but it’s guaranteed to make your trip memorable. Surrounded by trees, you’ll almost forget that you’re in the northern suburbs of Atlanta staying here. But indeed, this Airbnb is in a residential neighborhood with plenty of places to get food just a short drive away.
Atmosphere is a major part of staying here, as this treehouse looks as if it’s been pulled straight from a storybook. Rope-bridges carefully connect three elevated platforms where the different rooms and spaces of this treehouse are. Sitting in the center is the bedroom with a double bed, which can be brought out onto a small, open-air platform when rolled through the room’s glass doors. Either side of that is a wonderfully cozy sitting room and a hammock deck, which are both equally good for chilling out or reading.
As for the practical side of things, this treehouse does have its own bathroom facilities, but they’re a 30 second walk away in the basement of the main house. Understandably, things are a little more basic here, with fans and a mattress warmer for temperature control. That said, the treehouse does have a microwave and Wi-Fi.
