The treehouse is separated into two stories, with a sleeping space in the little loft area. While there’s just a queen bed up there, the rental can host up to three people, thanks to the sofa bed downstairs. Besides the sofa and living space, the lower level has a kitchenette and bathroom.
You might expect a treehouse stay to be all about the ambiance and natural surroundings, and that’s certainly the big draw here.
