It’s been a long week. Let’s unwind with some Hudson Valley treehouse eye candy…

After all, who doesn’t love a whimsical treehouse tucked away in some hidden location? You might not be able to see them from your car, but they still exist, and thanks to the magic of the Internet, we found them.

Garrison Treehouse by Sharon Davis Design – 

Alas, this is part of a private residence, so we can’t stay in it overnight. However, we can admire the photos on Davis’ website. Made of polycarbonate and steel, the treehouse is situated on a 19th century farmhouse and features a twisty slide and climbing net.

Treehouse Lovenest, Putnam County – 

This treehouse located in Carmel you can stay in overnight, as we’ve reported before on Upstater. The two-bedroom country cabin embraces its rustic tendencies and asks visitors to “unplug” when they arrive. Easy to do when you’ve got a full kitchen, lots of cookbooks, a record player, and a wrap-around deck with stunning views at your disposal.

Glasshouse Treehouse  by Nelson Treehouse and Supply – 

The Glasshouse Treehouse in the Catskills was featured on the Animal Planet show Treehouse Masters. It features walls made entirely of repurposed windows and frames, and the effect is certainly striking. We wish we could bask in the sun while relaxing on the treehouse’s couch with views from all of those windows.

Cliffside Treehouse in the Hudson Valley by Baumraum

The German design firm Baumraum makes a lot of treehouses with a decidedly modern, Minimalist flair. The Cliffside Treehouse is one such treehouse with a viewing platform/patio included. That vantage point should give the occupant a stunning view of the Hudson River below.

Modern Woodstock House in the Trees

For our fifth and final treehouse offering, behold this Modern beauty in Woodstock NY. With glass walls and views galore, this property is available for short term rental. And, while you’re enjoying those views, take a dip in the pool when the weather allows. Talk about luxury.

Speaking of luxurious treehouses near Woodstock, there’s always this one located in Willow. You can stay there for $350/night.
