Think back to your childhood. Remember what it was like to climb up into a tree and escape the chaos on the ground for a little while. To be secluded up there. To be in your own little slice of solitude. That's what treehouses are all about: peace. Though we're all a bit too big to snuggle into the treehouse we grew up with (or wanted to grow up with), there's an adult option waiting for you in B.C.'s East Kootenays.
Outa-the-Woods is an eco-friendly treehouse unlike any other. First off, it's the size of an actual house but still built up along the treeline. But what really makes this place truly unique is the design. It was built on seven different trees with curved, twisted, and burled wood. The home features several carvings, two hand-made spiral staircases, and an assortment of rustic furniture. It feels like it's been there longer than you can even conceive. Its walls whisper secrets to the guests. It frees the mind up for all sorts of creative opportunities and just simply allows it to breathe. Quite frankly, stepping inside it is almost like entering a fairytale mid-story.
The treehouse, which you can rent for $200 per night plus customer controlled fees, is nestled in the picturesque Mayook Valley not far from Kimberley, Cranbrook, and Fernie. Right out the door of the cabin is over 300 acres of lush land that is perfect for hiking, kayaking, and an assortment of wildlife activities perfect for friends, couples, families, or even just yourself.
This is a family-run business so respect is of the utmost importance. Beyond their welcoming space and a gorgeous environment, you'll have access to a propane fireplace, a bbq, a fully functioning kitchen with solar power and electrical outlets, a bathroom, multiple bedrooms, a hammock, and so much more. There's just no Wi-Fi.
If you're worried that this place is just a bit too secluded, there's a cabin nearby, as well as a reception, to make sure you're well looked after. But then again, treehouses are all about escaping, so a bit of space and freedom is exactly what you need.
