Treehouse Wanderlust (Win a $150 Gift Certificate to Glamping Hub)

by Kim on November 23, 2015 · 129 comments

Enchanting Tree House Up Tri-Centennial Oak Tree, France (4)

Please note that the chance to win the $150 Glamping Hub gift certificate is now closed. Congratulations to Andi who was randomly selected to win.

I was five years old when my parents took me to Disney World. It was my first time on an airplane (it made an emergency landing) and my first time in Florida (I’d rarely been south of the Mason-Dixon line). I’m sure it was a lovely trip, but I remember essentially nothing of it. Except for this one thing. Drilled into the fleshy mass between my ears, in the fiery glow of my hippocampus, I remember the Swiss Family Robinson Treehouse.

Something about that treehouse set the neurons in my little brain firing. The treehouse stood for adventure, for nature, for simplicity. The treehouse was rustic and whimsical. I mean, it was a house in the trees. I was enthralled. 30 years later I’m still enthralled. It’s not every day that you meet a lifelong love.

So when Glamping Hub reached out to let me know that they’d added Treehouse Getaways to their collection of tent, yurt, teepee and campervan rentals and told me that I could give one of you a $150 gift certificate if I’d just let you guys know about it, I said YES PLEASE.

Glamping Hub offers treehouse rentals from coast to coast in the United States as well as rentals in Europe, Southeast Asia and South America. And all you have to do to win a $150 gift certificate is leave a comment below (make sure the email address you use is accurate so I can contact you should you be the lucky winner).

So let me stir up your wanderlust by sharing just a few of the many treehouses available to rent through Glamping Hub:

Like this amazing treehouse in my beloved Oregon:

And this two-story glamping pad on the opposite coast in Vermont:

There’s this whimsical beauty near Mohican State Park in Ohio:

And this funky treehouse outside of Austin, Texas:

You can do some winter glamping in Quebec, Canada:

Breathtaking Tree Houses in Protected Regional Forest in Quebec 2

Or swing amongst the trees in this spherical treehouse in France:

Eat your dinner in the treetops of Madrid:

Reportaje del Camping Monte Holiday, ecoturismo.

Or glamp in this otherworldly camping pod in Germany:

Cozy Cottage In The Trees in Saxony, Germany 4

Finally, you can’t get more wanderlusty than this incredible treehouse at a Kenyan wildlife sanctuary:

Eco Lodge Overlooking Kenyan Wildlife Sanctuary 2

Eco Lodge Overlooking Kenyan Wildlife Sanctuary 1

Glamping Hub offers offbeat outdoorsy accommodations all over the world. Win a $150 gift certificate to Glamping Hub by simply leaving a comment below (the gift certificate is good for any Glamping Hub rental, not just treehouses). I’ll pick a winner using a random number generator on 11/30/15. Glamping Hub gift certificates are also available for purchase here. Happy camping glamping.

My first flight was to Disney as well. I was in 3rd grade and I had to dress up for the flight because people still did that back then. My mother sat in the smoking section in the back with my aunt. Can you imagine? My strongest memory is getting my red Minnie Mouse fanny pack from KB toy store. I loved wearing it. Haha. ?

One of the best holidays we ever spent in France was a road-trip along the south-west coast. We were staying in a variety of hostels and chambres d’hôtes – whatever the budget allowed. By far the best was a little yourte we found outside Arcachon. I will never forget the children’s faces when they saw where we would be staying. It was cosiness itself with a little pot-bellied stove to boot! Ever since I’m always looking out for quirky little places to stay – these beauties definitely tick the boxes!

The past several weeks I’ve been tent camping at the Grand Canyon. 19 degrees at night and snow! I love camping but I decided from now on winter camping is going to be Winter Glamping! I’ve followed you since the beginning – seems long ago that you initially set out across the US and even visited my home near Asheville. My favorite story? The India auto rigshaw race – I’ve been to India twice so I know how amazing that ride was! And my favorite blog post – the one about the ghost life. Ah yes, so true.

I share the same lifelong love of tree houses. My husband and I planted trees in the backyard when we first moved in hoping to one day build a treehouse for our children. I don’t know that we will stay in one place long enough to patiently await the trees becoming sturdy enough, but maybe the next owners will look at the trees and see their potential too.
