Stretching from the Great Lakes up to the Hudson Bay, boasting more than 250,000 lakes (or one-fifth of the world’s freshwater), and covering more than one million square kilometers, Ontario is truly immense. Leave the southern big cities of Toronto and Ottawa and you’ll find yourself in the wild. Treehouses thrive in such an environment and the province has a great selection of these rentals. Outdoor activities like kayaking, hiking, fishing, bird-watching, and even “wolf howling” (Algonquin Provincial Park specialty) are widely practiced too. These are the best treehouse Airbnbs in Ontario to have an ideal Canadian escape.
Embrace the sheer beauty of Central Ontario by gifting yourself a stay at Fort the Baltic. Fine woodwork and modern amenities define this treehouse, the propane fireplace inside creates a special atmosphere, and the vinyl player is a nice touch. It’s a self-sustained property with a fully equipped kitchen, ground-level fire pit, and a bath with heated floors. During the summer you can enjoy the rain shower outside too. Just when you think how else can it be better, there’s a wood-burning hot tub surrounded by trees. That’s hands-down one of the best treehouse Airbnbs in Ontario for a couples retreat.
Muskoka is named “cottage country” for a reason, the 1,600 local lakes call those who can’t live without the delights of the outdoors. Have yourself a rewarding stay by booking an A-frame treehouse packed with charming features. Constructed in the 70s and renovated in 2022, the property enjoys a high rating with guests praising the magical setting, impeccable privacy, and pet-friendliness. That’s the ultimate idea for a couple’s retreat and one of the best treehouse Airbnbs in Ontario. Floor-to-ceiling windows give the best views of the forest life, the fully equipped kitchen allows you to cook freely, and the outdoor hot tub is a fantastic stargazing base. Moreover, there’s easy access to Penn Lake for SUPing during the summer and ice skating in winter.
Sometimes what’s needed for a regenerative break is sweating it all in the eucalyptus sauna. Raven’s Roost has one along with the amazing outdoor area among the trees and a fire pit for s’morre roasting. If you’re looking for a dreamy place for spending time with your loved one or celebrating an anniversary, that’s this treehouse. Located outside of Dorset in the Canadian Shield, the property is a perfect base to profit from the surrounding lakes, proximity to the Algonquin Provincial Park, and clear dark skies for stargazing.

It’s not fancy or luxurious, just very functional, clean, and modern. The kitchenette inside facilitates cooking, the propane BBQ is for grilling outside, and the firepit is for long conversations under the stars. The treehouse is set on private land with 100 acres of forest so you will have plenty of space to walk around. Eagle Lake nearby is a great spot for swimming and boating.
Usually, treehouses are quite small and can accommodate 1 family at most. Not this property. You’re looking at a mega treehouse rental with a 13-guest capacity, 6 levels, and 5 bedrooms.

You’ve got a scenic hot tub, a large patio area, and even a private dock where you can sit right beside the lake.
Only trees will surround you when staying at this beautiful property. The location is semi-remote here, the Airbnb is set just outside Rockingham among the untouched valley. It’s an authentic treehouse experience, the wooden structure is built into the forest and you reach it by a wooden bridge.

Also, it’s a quite off-the-grid kind of stay, there’s no running water, the wood-burning stove provides heating, and the hot plate is used for cooking.
