Looking for the coolest and most unique treehouse rentals in Virginia? Well, look no further, as I’ve scoured the internet and found some unbelievable glamping Treehouse stays across this amazing state!
Given that much of its landscape remains forested, and that its physical geography is shaped by the untamed Blue Ridge Mountains, there can be few places in America better-suited to treehouse rentals than Virginia. You can find dreamily remote properties where walking trails pass the front steps, black bears prowl the forests, and you can catch the sunset either from a hot tub on the deck, or cuddled up around a wood burning stove.
Whether you’re fishing Chesapeake Bay, touring historic locations such as Monticello, or looking to make the most of Virginia’s great natural paradise for hiking, horse riding and canoeing, there are few better options for accommodation than a treehouse. Take your pick from rustic charm with just the basic amenities, to modern luxury, and childhood fantasies that families especially will adore.

Tree Top Cabin on the Shenandoah River
Price: $285+ per night
This purpose-built vacation rental sits on an 18-acre ‘fish trap’ that was known to Native Americans hundreds of years ago. Sleeping eight guests across three bedrooms, this is not strictly a treehouse, but is certainly raised up among the trees, and deserves mention for its accessibility.

The spacious property has modern furnishings and amenities, with luxurious hardwood flooring and huge windows in the living room that bathe it in natural light. Outside there’s a large deck with a gas grill and a hot tub to soak in at sunset.
There is a vast range of outdoor activities available in the area, both winter and summer. Horse riding, skiing, kayaking and wine tasting are all options, as is a busy calendar of events: the Page County Heritage Festival in October is a great time to visit and scoop up lots of handcrafted gifts for Christmas.

Positioned on a private lot leading down to the waterfront, the sunrises and sunsets over the lake here at this Virginia treehouse are as magnificent as you would probably expect.

Ranked by Airbnb as one of the best places to stay in all Virginia, this is the kind of treehouse that you dream of building (and living in!) as a kid. It’s not luxurious, it’s not glamping, it’s a fantasy treehouse designed by a renowned Richmond architect, and resembling a fire tower in appearance.
Spanning two storeys, the treehouse is built from reclaimed redwood and sits in the backyard of a private home. You’ll have a private entrance to the main house’s basement where there is a bathroom and lounge area. Sleeping six comfortably, the treehouse itself is accessed over a rope bridge, and offers hammocks, a fire pit, and complementary bike hire.
There are plenty of riverside trails in the area to explore on foot or two wheels, including the popular Buttermilk Trail. The treehouse is set on five wooded acres, and is dog-friendly too so there’s no need to leave the pooch at home.
Price: $140+ per night

There is a bathroom built from reclaimed wood, and a grill on the deck with a set of rocking chairs you’ll fall in love with. This is a great treehouse for groups, sleeping six across two bedrooms and futons in the living room.

Don’t think the seclusion means you lose out on amenities however. You can expect spacious, modern and well-appointed accommodation.
How might a perfect day here unfold? Start by enjoying your morning coffee out on the deck listening to the wind ruffling the trees and the creek burbling along.

Bliss.
Price: $210+ per night

Inside the treehouse you’ll find a quirky decor, with a snug loft sleeping space that is accessed by ladder – if you’re reasonably fit you should have no difficulties. The other amenities include a kitchenette with a mini fridge, microwave and coffee pot – there’s also an outdoor propane grill. You’ll also have use of a spacious bathroom with a walk-in shower a short distance from the treehouse.
This property is set on a working farm with micro pigs, chickens and bees. You’ll encounter squirrels, woodpeckers and deer, and in the evenings cosying up around the firepit expect a few curious goats coming around in search of a handful of raisins.
Magical hillside tree house

Convenient both for Charlottesville, and Shenandoah National Park with its waterfalls, wildflower meadows and wood hollows where deer and black bear roam, this Virginia treehouse is tucked away on a private hillside amid 10 forested acres.
