The history

The hosts bought the property, which consists of about 280 acres of land, in 2003. Previous owners built the treehouse from red cedar imported from British Columbia, and it’s now used as a rental year-round. The current owners live in a log cabin elsewhere on the property.

Major perks

Camping out in the elevated fort is guaranteed to thrill your inner child (but creature comforts like a hot shower, fireplace and electric heat will soothe your practical grownup). This fall, the panoramic views from the loft will be a dreamy way to take in the fall colours.

Possible deal breaker

There’s no internet or TV, meaning guests will have to commit to a technology-free weekend. Also, the iron staircase would be tricky for anyone with mobility concerns.
