1. Treehouse Lodge, Peru
Located near Iquitos, Peru, in the Amazon, this resort has 10 treetop bungalows connected by suspension bridges, providing up-close views of the flora and fauna. Remember the Lost Boys’ hideout in Hook? That’s the vibe, just way nicer.
2. TreeHouse Point, Washington
At this six-room hotel and conservatory outside Seattle, you can indulge your inner hippie with tai chi and yoga classes and hypnotherapy sessions. The hobbit-like elevated rooms, which go for about $300 a night, have overstuffed armchairs and splendid views of the nearby river.

4. Treehouse Cottages
For less than $200 a night, you can stay at one of seven raised cabins in Eureka Springs, Arkansas, a budding outdoors hot spot, with tons of streams and trails to explore.
