Traffic for miles, sounds everywhere, long brunch lines… did I mention the parking?! While the city of Los Angeles is a place of pure creativity and culture- sometimes you just need a break from all the hustle + bustle. With the holiday season here, it tends to get even crazier and that calls for a little vacation and time to unwind.

Instead of heading to the usual weekend getaways: Palm Springs, Santa Barbara, San Diego, it’s time to try something new… A treehouse getaway! Grab a backpack and some snacks, because these treehouses are just a few hours away. Getting in touch with nature is a true way to unwind + learn.

If you’re looking for the a romantic getaway, THIS is the house for you! This beautiful house is located on Crown Hill Ranch and Conservation Center, so to stay here you must be willing to plant a tree (and hike up to the house itself.) Don’t worry, their hot-tub is available year round, so you can soak after all that hard work.

This place looks like pure magic- I mean, look at the lights! The master bedroom looks out into the tops of trees just 30 feet over their stream-fed creek. European linens, a clawfoot tub, a skylight… time to sign up! You can also add a private dinner, Tai Chi or yoga session outdoor on the bridge to the entire experience!

Jumping straight into treehouse territory can be a bit overwhelming. If you’re new to the whole treehouse idea, this location is for you! It has a modern feel with woodsy accents, plenty of outdoor space and lots of space to accommodate. If you’re ready for a cozy weekend, this is your jam!

If you’re an animal lover who truly wants to escape the city and has a love for animals, this treehouse is for you. Wake to the sound of chickens, the aroma of orange blossoms & views of mountains from queen bed. Enjoy flat screen TV, large deck with BBQ, fire pit, gentle breezes on a 10-acre family farm. Stroll orchard to collect eggs, oranges and other fruit or vegetables. Plus- you can bring your own pet as long as they stay on a leash!

If you are up for getting completely off the grid (aka NO cell phone service) then you need to head to Big Sur. With the crashing blue waves, salty air and plenty of natural surroundings- if you haven’t been here yet, what are you waiting for!? Make the experience a truly magical one by staying at the luxurious Post Ranch Inn in their tree house. These houses are built nine feet off the forest floor with a stairway entrance, king bed, fireplace and skylights to view the starts. Sign me up!
