Treehouses in Georgia: 27 Places to Sleep in the Trees

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Updated May 2021.

Maybe it’s primal thing, our love and fascination for sleeping in treehouses. Or maybe it’s the nostalgia factor as many of us have fond childhood memories of playing in treehouses. I grew up on a cul de sac, where we spent hours in the Kellys’ treehouse, one of many rustic treehouses in Atlanta back then, nestled in the woods near a creek. Or perhaps it’s just the getaway factor, our chance to unplug and disconnect in a beautiful setting.

Whatever the reason, treehouses of all varieties are hugely popular, with many of them booked for months out. Here are 25 treehouses in Georgia, including several treehouses in Atlanta. One has the most spectacular bathroom you won’t believe, one is close to the world’s longest zip line, one comes complete with a deck with a gas grill, while several are inside the city limits of Atlanta.

We also have several under $100 and a few that are perfect for families. While some are on the rustic side with no running water, others and way up there on the luxury scale.

It’s a treehouse. It’s in the woods. It’s also in the city of Atlanta. Perhaps that’s part of its enormous popularity. This intown treehouse is booked months out and was voted the most wished-for listing worldwide on Airbnb for 2016. In comments, people speak of its magical and life-changing qualities and the beauty of it being within walking distance of stores and restaurants.

It has three spaces connected by rope bridges. The bed is on wheels so it can be rolled out onto a platform overlooking a stream. A separate living space has rustic furnishings and a chandelier, while the third space is a deck. Guests store their luggage and use the bathroom in the bottom floor of Peter and Katie’s home, right next door. Fairy lights at night add to the magical quality of the treehouse at night. Peter delivers coffee in the mornings or leaves it at the foot of the steps if the guests are sleeping.

We live just around the corner of this treehouse, and have had drinks in the living room with Peter Bahouth, who owns the treehouse with his wife, Katie. They have hosted celebrities like Aaron Paul and his friend Woody Harrelson, people looking to celebrate a special occasion as well as those just looking for an unusual getaway.

I’ll go out on a limb here (couldn’t avoid the treehouse humor) and say you’ll never see another bathroom like this one in a treehouse. This treehouse was designed by Pete Nelson, host of “Treehouse Master” and he refers to it as a “spa in the sky.”

The treehouse was designed to showcase a new line of products for men from Dove Men+Care, so what better way to introduce nature-inspired products than have them used in such a natural setting? The gorgeous glass-enclosed shower even includes a tree, along with heated tile floors, five digitally controlled shower heads and a huge sink.

Guests have a cozy sitting area, queen-size bed on the main level and two twins in the loft upstairs. For enjoying the outdoors, there are two decks, a firepit just below and trails winding around the wooded property that backs up to Rock City in Tennessee at the base of Lookout Mountain.

The Elements Treehouse is in Flintstone, Georgia, about 15 minutes from Chattanooga. For a full review, see Into the Woods: Sleeping in a Treehouse Hideaway

Historic Banning Mills

My son, husband and I screamed our way (okay, that was only me) through the entire Screaming Eagle Zipline Canopy Tour at Historic Banning Mills, the world’s longest and largest zipline. Seriously. It’s almost 10 miles of zips, with lots of challenging rope bridges to cross over.

We spied the charming treehouses here and resolved to come back and stay. A village of seven treehouse rooms are set more than 70 feet up above the gorge. Fear of heights? You may not want to stay here as rooms are only accessible by a rope-and-wood sky bridge. If you do make it over, you’ll be rewarded by a room with a king bed, gas log fireplaces, tub for two, private bath and deck overlooking the gorge. Each room has a small fridge and a Keurig coffee machine. The rooms sway a bit in the wind, but isn’t that what you want for a full treehouse experience?

Historic Banning Mills is in Whitesburg, Georgia, about an hour west of Atlanta. Rates start at $209.
