Friday Fun: Treehouses – the Luxury Version

Following last week’s perched offerings, I realised that architects and hoteliers have caught on with humans’ perpetual fascination with treehouses. So there are now more new places high above the trees than ever before, where you can eat, study, play or even pray, indulge in your Tarzan fantasy… for the right price.

  1. I like the Loch Goil one but worry about the midgeys… but there’s something very enchanting about Blue Forest’s Quiet Tree house… Could quite happily be a writer (and reader) in residence there … where do I apply😁

    1. Really, really, ladies – so practical all of you: kitchen fires, midges… whatever next?! You’ll be complaining about having to climb the stairs or rope ladders next… 😉

    1. They have a number of treehouses in that area, for couples, for families… and for frustrated writers trying to get away from it all, I imagine…

  2. The Scottish one is lovely, and do you think the Tennessee one counts as a Modernist Tree House? It’s very spectacular!

  3. I love all of these. Years ago a therapist suggested I create a safe place in my head and when I looked in my imagination, it turned out to be a tree house. I’d live in any one of these and feel wonderfully at my ease!
