The weather is set to change to rain and snow this weekend, but just before it does, what better place to escape to than the height of a tree? From there we can watch all the flowers peek out their cautious heads, listen to birdsong and read our favourite books of course. On her wonderful crime fiction blog, Margot Kinberg recently mentioned places where detectives could retreat and recover from their hectic jobs. Sheds, boats, orchid rooms… We both agreed we would love to hear of a treehouse-dwelling sleuth. Do let us know if you’ve heard of one, won’t you?
Here are some tree houses that he/she might like to try out… Something for every taste, modern to traditional, mansion to modest dimensions. I suppose it’s something to do with our hunter/gatherer roots, that we are so attracted to tree houses.

I’ll take them all and a sunlit forest to put them all in, please 😀
Agree! I could do tree-hopping!
Yes. This. The perfect writing retreat. Sign me up!
Practical soul that I am, I did wonder a little about toilets… 😉
Thank you, Marina Sofia, for the kind mention. 🙂 I appreciate it! And yes, it would be so wonderful to have a treehouse hideaway like these. I love the E’terra Samara Hotel – just wonderful!
At some point I’ll have to stay in a hotel like that. Although an isolated tree house would be even better…
I’ll take the top one please – does the chateau come with the package? 😉
Ha! But possibly the heating bills for that medieval pile would cripple you…
Tree houses absolutely charm me, along with cabins and Tiny Houses. Sometimes I am so bored by my conventional space, and I crave a new environment as long as it incorporates the outdoors. The unpretentious.
Well, I don’t know about unpretentious – some of those tree houses are positively palatial! But yes, I’d love a cosy little space outdoors somewhere. It would probably be a bit spooky on a day like today, though (bucketing down).
