The Tree Escape (The TreEscape)

Price: $200 per night

Ideal for: Four guests

Pets allowed: No

There are two remarkable things about this treehouse. First, it is located in Sevierville and hence offers easy access to the Great Smoky Mountains. And second is it’s the first ‘True’ treehouse in the region designed by the Treehouse Guys who appear in the DIY network show.

You’ll find two trees piercing right through the property, giving you an authentic treehouse camping experience. There’s another tree that can be accessed by the suspension bridge. The cabins are luxurious and have amenities like a leather sofa, queen-sized beds, high-speed internet, industrial-style pub table, and bar stools, etc.

The exterior is just as impressive, and you’ll find a covered hot tub and a double bar right outside the interior kitchen window.

Being located in a secluded place, you’ll find nothing but tall trees. A 15-minute ride will take you to the strip in Gatlinburg. Other attractions like Dollywood and the Smokies Mountain aren’t far either.

All in all, it’s an excellent treehouse to spend your holidays in Tennessee.

The Cedar Treehouse Grove at Norton Creek

Price: $400 per night

Ideal for: Four guests

Pets allowed: No

One of the most luxurious treehouses in Tennessee is the Cedar. With a rustic environment serving as the base, the treehouse is equipped with everything you expect from a star-rated hotel room.

The Cedar has two bedrooms, one bathroom, a living area, an outdoor deck, and a patio. Inside, you’ll find a wide range of amenities to help you camp in the wilderness in style. This includes TV, air conditioning, heaters, internet, coffee maker, silverware, and a laptop-friendly workspace.

The Cedar is part of eight other treehouses located in Norton Creek. Designed by famed treehouse builder Pete Nelson, these properties are nothing short of architectural gems.

The Treehouse Grove at Norton Creek is now owned by brothers Joe and Joseph Ayers. Both of them are real estate developers and lifetime Tennesseans.

Hummingbird Hideaway

Price: $167 per night

Ideal for: Four guests

Pets allowed: Yes

Nearly all of the treehouses are built in rustic settings. But the Hemingway Hideaway takes it to the extreme. This 150 square feet treehouse is located in the middle of an 18-acres wood, away from the urban clamor.

The cabin resembles an abandoned hut from the 1950s. But it’s when you step indoors do you realize its modern approach to treehouse camping. It’s equipped with everything from air conditioning to mini-refrigerator to coffee maker to microwave. 

Outside the treehouse, you’ll find another treehouse within a few meters with a smokeless fire pit and a hot tub. So light up the stocked-up firewood and enjoy the picturesque forest beauty from the hot tub. You’ll also find a horseshoe pit, corn-hole, and a giant Jenga game.

The town of Monteagle has quite a few things to explore. Monteagle Falls, South Cumberland State Park, and Sam H. Werner Military Museum are some of them.

So a trip to this treehouse in Monteagle won’t leave you disappointed.

Splashin’ Treehouse

Price: $345 per night

Ideal for: Ten guests

Pets allowed: No

One of the largest treehouses in Tennessee with all the modern amenities, Splashin’ Treehouse is a family-friendly glamping destination in Gatlinburg.

The two-story treehouse boasts three bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms, a kitchen, a dining area, and spacious living rooms. It also has two pools (which perhaps inspired the name). One is an outdoor hot tub for long soaks under the sun. And the other is indoors for luxurious bubble baths.

To keep the kids engaged, Splashin’ has a special room with toys, free-to-play arcade systems, a pool table, a ping pong table, and a football table. 

You also have wireless internet connectivity to catch up with your latest Netflix show or check emails.

There are a few hiking trails near the treehouse. But just a 20-minute drive will take you to the trails at Smokies. Or take a trip to Gatlinburg for shopping, dining, and exploring the city.

Unfortunately, no pets are allowed. Therefore, you’d have to leave your four-legged friends with the neighbors.

Serenity House

Price: $180 per night

Ideal for: Two to three guests

Pets allowed: Yes

Serenity House justifies its name by offering a noise-free environment and an immersive view overlooking a small valley. It’s situated high on the trees, 80 feet above the valley floor.

The 460-square feet treehouse has a loft bedroom, spacious bathroom, and a fully-equipped kitchen inside. The outside includes a porch that offers excellent views, including that of a horse pasture nearby.

While it can accommodate as many as four guests, it’s recommended for two, hence is a couples’ retreat. Cook your significant other’s fave meal and have a candlelight dinner together on the spacious porch.

No internet or TV access, along with weak phone connectivity, means there’s enough time to get closer to each other. Take a walk on the trails around the property. One of these leads to a nearby pond frequented by highland cows, goats, and horses. It’s also suitable for swimming or fishing.

The Dogwood Treehouse Grove

Price: $180 per night

Ideal for: Four guests

Another member of the Treehouse Grove at Norton Creek, Dogwood is at an incredible height of 45 feet above the ground. The views from the top will make you fall in love with the canopy-style treehouse almost immediately.

Just like other properties at Treehouse Grove, it has two bedrooms with wooden interiors and one bath. Two queen-size beds offer enough space to sleep four guests. 

The amenities won’t make you feel like you’re camping inside a treehouse. There’s air conditioning, a refrigerator, a heater, a television, a hair dryer, and a coffee maker, among other things. For peace of mind, there’s a smart lock system and a free parking spot for your car/RV right under the treehouse.

Seven other treehouses are within close proximity. But don’t expect that to break the calmness or serenity as parties and loud music are strictly prohibited.

Dove Getaway is a charming, luxurious treehouse tucked inside 18 acres of secluded woods. Located in the small town of Monteagle a few miles away from downtown, it’s always high in demand among recreationists.

Sulphur Ridge Luxury Treehouse

Price: $380 per night

Ideal for: Two guests

Pets allowed: No

Considered the first luxurious treehouse in Tennessee, Sulphur Ridge is built on a private property that spans 19 acres. It’s located next to the Sulphur Ridge, making it even more special for nature lovers seeking solitude.

You enter the treehouse through an 1848 antebellum mansion door. Inside, you’ll find all the luxurious amenities, ranging from air conditioning to a French press to a Clawfoot bathtub. All of these are meant to make your stay as comfortable as possible.

The treehouse is 15 feet above the ground, overlooking the secluded woods. Also, you have a patio, a fire pit, and a hot tub right below the cabin. Also, there’s a hanging bed underneath. Sip a cup of coffee at the hanging bed or prepare some tasty marshmallows at the fire pit while relishing the mountain views.

Bloomington Springs is a relatively unknown town with little to see or do. But it is closer to Cookeville, a city filled with boutique shopping centers and eateries serving Southern cuisine.

La Paz, Treehouse Mountain

Price: $260 per night

Ideal for: Four guests

Pets allowed: Yes

La Paz is an impressive two-story, tropical-themed treehouse constructed on a single tree.

You’ll find a kitchenette adjacent to a small dining space at the base level. The kitchenette has a small refrigerator, oven, and coffee maker. Along with that, there’s a full-sized futon that turns into a bed.

The bedroom is upstairs in the loft. It has a queen-sized bed next to the tree and a small sofa. Spectacular mountain views are guaranteed right from the moment you wake up and look out of the bedroom window.

Similar vistas are accessible from the porch or the fire pit below the treehouse.

The main treehouse is connected to a tiki hut (which is actually the entrance platform) via a suspension bridge. It houses a half bathroom and the griddle.

There are four more treehouses within the property, which can together accommodate 17 guests. So if you’re planning for a group glamping, Treehouse Mountain is highly recommended.

The Treehouse Cabin

Price: $140 per night

Ideal for: Six guests

Pets allowed: No

The Treehouse Cabin epitomizes rustic cabin retreat. Tucked between dense woods and tall trees, it overlooks a natural spring-filled lake. With a small park, gravel roads, and 8 acres of pristine land, it resembles a small state park that you can enjoy privately.

The cabin has two bedrooms, one with a double-size bed and the other with a king-sized bed. Along with that, it has a bathroom, LCD TV, a fully-equipped kitchen, an air conditioner, and an indoor fireplace, among other things. Parking is free and you can bring in your car/RV.

The cabin is not technically a treehouse since it’s not elevated. But the views from the top are just as impressive.

The treehouse is just a few minutes away from popular attractions like Cumberland Mountain State Park, Lake Tansi, Clifty Creek, Ozone Falls, and Cumberland Playhouse.

Furthermore, expect a lot of golf courses as the town is known as the Golf Capital of Tennessee. There are as many as nine pristine courses fit for both amateurs and professionals.
