A Magic Tree House…For Adults! $179/night

Okay, so we cheated a bit—this forest getaway is in the southern Adirondacks. If you’re willing to make the drive up (it’s about 3.5 hours from Brooklyn), a magical treehouse awaits. We think it’s worth the miles.

Nestled among the canopy, this treehouse in Middle Grove is the ultimate summer retreat spot. Designed for indoor/outdoor living, this rental includes a rustic enclosed sleeping area with a full bed and two twins, plus a full bathroom with standard plumbing. The deck overlooking the lush surrounding woodlands is the perfect place to read, play cards, or contemplate the current state of the world. Down a charming spiral staircase, you’ll find a fully functioning outdoor kitchen, with running water, electric, and a charcoal grill. And if you tire of the silence amongst the trees, Saratoga Springs is a mere nine miles away with its art galleries, eateries, and shops.
