Rentals I would drop everything for
By Sonam Kaloti, Arts Editor
Travelling is one of life’s greatest treasures… second to travelling and staying in a cool room all day. Even if you’re someone who only likes coming home to sleep, these rentals will make it the best sleep of your life (or at least hopefully inspire you to find one!).
Beginning with something more local, this treehouse is located right next door in Goldendale, Washington, USA. It’s secluded deep in the forest, with many nearby trails and hikes to go on. There are two bedrooms so there’s just about enough space for a romantic couples’ nature getaway, or a small family trip. Its nightly price averages around $170.
Warning: I love treehouses, so expect to see a lot more.
This gorgeous treehouse x cabin is in Huasca de Ocampo, Hidalgo, Mexico. Definitely a bit of travel required, but the gorgeous forest views and nearby bonfire would be the perfect place to relax (perhaps after a long beach day?).
The interior is beautifully decorated. The décor and colour scheme is sleek, and the cabin is spacious. It sleeps four guests so there’s enough room for a family. A two-night minimum stay is required at an average of $100 a night.
This one has an outdoor soaking tub! Need I say more? This cabin’s hillside home is in Gloster, Mississippi, United States. There’s a creek nearby, and the entire area is pet friendly. The secluded area by the creek reminds me of the still creek in The Deathly Hallows II with how calm the atmosphere is.
There is no WiFi, no children allowed (except on specific holidays), and there is only a tiny grocery store 25 minutes away from the retreat, so pack wisely, and be ready to relax into nature.
The average price for this retreat is $200 per night with a two-night minimum stay.
It’s as sleek and modern on the inside as it is on the outside. The furnishings and décor are simple and crisp, with a beautiful beige-black colour scheme. A spiral staircase takes you to the bedroom landing.
This stay boasts a hammock and a hot tub (for an extra charge), and is in Sēja, Latvia. An average night’s stay is $150.
Another treehouse! I told you I love these things. This one lives in Érezée, Belgium and has a stunning yard and bedroom decorated with fairy lights. There’s even an outdoor heated jacuzzi! Now that’s what I call a dream Airbnb. Its average nightly price is $220.
Last but not least in the slightest, you can have this entire island all to yourself. This lovely inn sits on Cassadaga Lake and is quite cozy on the inside. It comes with canoes and kayaks you can use and averages about $300 a night with a two-night minimum stay. Cassadaga, New York, United States, here I come!
These are only a few of the total dreamscapes available, and there’s hidden gems all around the world. If you’re ready to explore, the world awaits you!
