Tips For Selecting a Tennessee Treehouse
- In some cases “treehouse” is a loose descriptor. Some of these are fairly low to the ground which may be nice if you have a fear of heights.
- Read the descriptions carefully. I have provided links which will give you all the details.
- A couple of these Tennessee treehouses are accessible by ramps. However do look closely at the interior because occasionally there are stairs on the inside.
- Some do not allow or are not appropriate for children.
- The treehouses listed range from luxurious to rustic. Read the details to make sure you are getting what you want in a get-away!
- Tennessee treehouse rentals can fill up quickly particularly in summer and fall so you might need to book early.
- Read the fine print! Make sure your treehouse has everything you need such as an attached bathroom, kitchen, etc.
- Read the reviews.
In most cases staying in a treehouse would be an all-season activity. The trees in spring are soft with pale yellows and greens, in summer they are lush and dense, in fall everything is a riot of color, and though the limbs are bare in winter the days are quiet and peaceful.
Hope you enjoy these treehouse rentals in Tennessee!
