Raise your hand if you loved tree houses as a kid… We’re sure pretty much all of you did because let’s face it, tree houses are cool. As we grew up we let go of some of the fantasies and dreams of our youth, but the idea of living in a tree house for most of us still has a child-like charm to it that could make any man giggle like a school girl if given the chance to live in it. For most of us living in a tree house isn’t an option, but vacationing in one for a week or two is certainly in the cards. Take a look at these 3 amazing tree house hotels around the world to recreate your favorite Swiss Family Robinson childhood fantasy.
