Gatlinburg, Tennessee is quickly becoming, and it might already be, one of the top vacation destinations in the United States — or at least within the South! Not only are you on the cusp of a national park, you are near countless tourist attractions, famed restaurants, and top-notch shopping — truly, there are things to do for just about every type of personality. Venture to a theme park, fly down a zip line, or simply enjoy the peace and quiet of the Smoky Mountains. While there are plenty of vacation rentals and hotels to choose from in this mountain town, we think it’s super cool that there are more than a handful of treehouses to rent in Gatlinburg for an out-of-the-box vacation.

Built on a treehouse specific show on the DIY network (we will let you guess which one), this treehouse truly meets every expectation one could have when dreaming up a functional sky-high dwelling that both connects folks with nature while creating a pampering environment. Drift away in the loft bedroom or traverse over the suspension bridge to the crows nest for a bird’s-eye view of the surroundings. A hot tub further adds to the spa-like elements of this visually perfected getaway.

Trees protrude from the brand new deck that surrounds the small but gorgeous treetop dwelling. A hot tub also overlooks the surrounding landscape, and the most beautiful staircase cascades guests down to ground level. Inside is a modern chic design that’s a little bit rugged in the best way. From the blue barn doors to the wooden accents, this place will make you swoon.

Is it a cabin or a treehouse? We think both! Logs construct the interior and exterior, while the interior exclusively features fun attributes like a cat walk leading to the game room, and the back of the home is stacked at three stories high! We also love the funky windows that look like they belong in a fun, imaginative childhood playhouse. But overall, there are all of the conveniences of any traditional family home.

Rustic in the very best sense of the word, this treehouse really will give you that rugged experience. When walking in, it almost feels like you’re entering the home of some forest creature, as everything is so simply honest and cozy. A creek trickles through the property, and swimming holes reside nearby. Guests can either explore the great Smoky Mountains or take on a portion of the famous Appalachian Trail.

But this one does have an absolutely awesome gaming space for kids, and a stand out porch with a hot tub.
