Whether you’re thinking about following the bourbon trail, taking in a horse race or exploring the mountains and caves of the Bluegrass State, make your stay more unique by considering treehouse rentals in Kentucky.
Part of the fun is that no two treehouses are alike. Some are perched high in trees, with one being reached by 120 steps, while others are easily accessible. Some have bathrooms and kitchens, while others are a bit more, well, rustic. As one owner wrote, “This isn’t a fancy resort, rather a unique experience.”
Treehouse rentals tend to be quirkier than other vacation rentals, with unique reading nooks, trees growing in the living room, or slides for making a fun exit.
While you may know Kentucky as the home to bourbon, the Kentucky Derby and that famous fictional colonel who makes fried chicken, Kentucky also has the world’s longest cave system, the Daniel Boone National Forest that includes the Red River National Gorge. This system of canyons has waterfalls, natural bridges and sandstone cliffs that attract rock climbers from around the world.
Most of these Kentucky treehouse rentals are located near the Red River Gorge National Forest, and several of them are located inside the national forest.
