Escaping to the backyard treehouse is, for many, an endearing memory of an adventurous childhood. But all too quickly, those safe havens high up in the branches and leaves pass with adolescence. Fortunately for the still young at heart, several hotels have sprung up into the trees, making it possible to be a kid again, at least for the weekend.
Take a look at these hotels, featured in an article in the Huffington Post, which strive to bring out the tree-climbing child wanderer in us once again.
Here are a few of my favorites:
The Post Ranch Inn, Big Sur, California
The Post Ranch Inn provides rooms that are quite literally elevated into the trees. The organic architecture of the hotel seems to intertwine with the wilderness around it, and the views of Big Sur are unrivaled. All of the rooms at the Ranch have wood-burning fireplaces, radiant floor heating, outdoor showers or hot tubs, private decks, and organic bath products and linens. The hotel is noteably sans television and alarm clocks in an attempt to make your stay as natural as possible.
The Haramara Retreat, Sayulita, Mexico
The Haramara Retreat is perfect for those looking to fully immerse themselves into the wild. Built on 12 acres of wild vegetation, the Haramara offers little cellular service and less electricity, frequent yoga and meditation classes, and open, unpaved trails for those visitors looking for a total getaway from the stresses of the outside world.
