Vermont is the ideal location for your treehouse adventure as it offers a unique experience in every season. If you plan your trip in the autumn, you’ll be able to treat yourself to one of the best fall foliage scenes in the world. You can witness the vibrant colors transform around you while you enjoy some fresh apple cider and pumpkin pie from your treehouse.

Winter gives you the chance to try some of Vermont’s award-winning ski resorts, such as Stowe Mountain Resort in the north and Killington Mountain Resort right in the center of the state.

If you are going in the spring, you’ll catch the magical period when nature comes back to life before your eyes. Of course, you will also be able to sample Vermont’s world-famous maple syrup during this time. Try it on some pancakes or waffles while in your cozy treehouse retreat!

Finally, a summer trip to Vermont gives you the opportunity to stay outdoors all day for hiking, biking, or fishing across the scenic countryside. You can then end your day with a pint of Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream, which is locally produced in Burlington, Vermont.

Of course, at any time of the year, you will have access to Vermont’s legendary hiking trails through the rugged mountain peaks of the Appalachian and the lush wilderness. If you have more time, you can also check out one of the many quintessential small towns and cities that radiate New England charm, such as Burlington, Manchester, Grafton, or Shelburne.

So, get inspired and let your imagination run free by booking one of these Airbnb treehouse rentals in Vermont.

This treehouse is located right in the heart of Green Mountain National Forest in central Vermont and is the perfect escape into nature.

Inside the cozy interior, there is a couch and kitchen area with a small refrigerator and a space to prepare food. There is also a loft with a queen size bed. In the colder months, there are electric heaters to keep the inside warm and toasty. Additionally, the treehouse comes with a bathroom that has a composting toilet and a seasonal outdoor shower.

Crystal said: “What an incredible experience! We weren’t sure what to expect, but it was amazing. As soon as we arrived, Derek met us to walk us to the tree house. He drove our bags up in his UTV to save us a trip. He was very descriptive and we loved hearing him talk about the work he has put into the tree houses on the property and his future plans. The place was clean and the workmanship blew our minds! We had a relaxing fire, a grill to make dinner, and a warm outdoor shower. Lights were helpful on the outside of the treehouse and we were thankful for WiFi since we didn’t have service otherwise. He had a fun variety of K-cups for the morning and extra warm blankets to keep us warm. We loved this place and didn’t want to leave!”

If you are looking to book a unique adventure for a larger group, then check out this luxurious treehouse for up to 6 guests. The owner of this Airbnb is a Superhost and offers this stunning, hand-crafted rental that is thoughtfully designed both inside and outside, making it one of the best Airbnb treehouses in Vermont.

You’ll find all the amenities of an upscale property in this treehouse, including a gas fireplace in the main “great room,” a full kitchen, and 3 beds (1 king size and 2 queen sizes) throughout the spacious, yet cozy interior.

Outside, there is also a 2 story deck, which contains a 10 foot long dining table, as well as a Weber grill and fire pit with 6 Adirondack chairs, making it perfect for some summertime grilling or for making smores in the autumn among the foliage.

This rustic retreat has purposely excluded a TV and WiFi, so you and your group can fully disconnect and immerse yourself in nature. It is located in the secluded forests of northern Vermont, ensuring that you and your guests will enjoy a quiet and private stay. Meanwhile, the historic town of St. Johnsbury is only 3 miles away, while Dog Mountain, a private mountaintop with hiking trails where dogs are free to run around and meet other dogs, is just a half mile away!

Shannon said: “Fantastic, unique AirBnb! This place has to be one of the best in Vermont! The craftsmanship of the cabin is unbelievable. So many details built in to the space and the decor is beautiful (rustic chic). The host was great with timely communication. Check-in was easy. The kitchen has every utensil/appliance we needed (we loved the coffee press). The cabin is cozy and super comfortable with a soft leather couch and great bedding, linens, and plenty of blankets. The location of this place is perfect to enjoy a weekend away from hustle and bustle, yet just a few minutes drive from great restaurants in the downtown. Absolutely a fantastic experience!”

Here is a beautiful treehouse cabin that was built by “The Treehouse Guys,” a local Vermont design and building company that specializes in custom treehouses. They were also featured in their own reality treehouse show for 3 seasons on the DIY Network.

The treehouse offers enough space for 2 queen beds, one in the loft and one on the main floor. There is also a single burner stove and a small refrigerator in case you would like to prepare some food. Best of all, the treehouse is built with plenty of windows and an outdoor porch that provide a stunning view of the surrounding nature around you. Please note that there is no shower installed in the treehouse and that the toilet is located outside in a separate porta potty.   

The treehouse is located near Camel’s Hump State Park in the Green Mountains range in northern Vermont and there is a hiking trail that starts right next to the cabin. You can enjoy some spectacular views from the treehouse or during your walks into the park, making it the perfect location to view the fall foliage.

Additionally, the Waterbury Village Historic District is only about a 20-30 minute drive away. There, you can take a tour of the Ben & Jerry’s factory, where they make about 350,000 pints per day. Also, Sugarbush Ski Resort and Stowe Mountain Resort are only a 30 to 40 minute drive, too.

There are many guest reviews that praised this Superhost and commented on the great views and cozy atmosphere of this treehouse. So, make sure you consider this listing if you are looking to rent a Vermont treehouse!

Here is another treehouse offered by the same host as the first choice on this list. It is perfect for a couple or a solo traveler who is looking to reconnect with nature in a unique and peaceful space.

The treehouse is located above a pond in the thick of the Green Mountain National Forest in the middle of Vermont and is very close to Killington Ski Resort (45 minute drive) and Sugarbush Resort (30 minute drive). There are also many quaint villages and towns nearby, such as Middlebury, Woodstock, Montpelier, and Stowe, all less than 1 hour away.

Inside, you get a king size bed and, since there is no electricity, there is a fire pit and a grilling area right outside of the treehouse. But, don’t worry, there is a propane heater to keep you warm during the cooler months. Also, there is a composting toilet and seasonal outdoor shower just outside of the treehouse.

This host offers a truly a unique experience for you to unwind and really disconnect from modern society. He is a Superhost who has received over 300 reviews, so you know that he can be trusted. When you are ready to reserve, remember to write your favorite type of tree in the message to the host to show that you have read through his description!

Kristoffer said: “Derek was a great host. Super friendly and helpful. The treehouse is amazing. We woke up every morning with beautiful views of misty treetops without even leaving the comfortable king size bed. Then enjoying our coffee on the porch while watching the beavers at work in the pond below. Then we could walk to the river which is right there on the property and splash around with the dog. The surrounding area has plenty of hiking trails and there are some small towns if you need to get anything. Long review short, there are plenty of things to do, or enjoy doing absolutely nothing.”

We think this is one of the best Vermont treehouse Airbnb options available and it is usually booked for months in advance, so make sure you plan ahead if you want to stay in this lovely space in the forest.

The owners of this treehouse are very eco-conscious and prioritized using local, natural, and recycled materials for the build (the windows are from an old, local schoolhouse). They also use environmentally friendly cleaning products, so you can ensure that you will be minimizing your footprint at this Airbnb.

Nestled in 20 acres of woods, this treehouse is beautifully appointed with a full size bed in the sleeping loft, a mini kitchen with 2 stove burners and a small refrigerator, and a charming living room with a propane stove for heat. There is also an outdoor deck that overlooks a stream, which provides soothing and relaxing sounds to help you unwind. The treehouse comes with a composting toilet as well as access to a shared main house only 200 feet away that has a full function bathroom with a regular toilet, shower, and even a washer and dryer.

This treehouse also comes with some nice outdoor amenities like a swing and hammock just below the structure. Nearby, there is Nichols Pond and you can borrow the host’s kayaks to paddle around.  

If you need any supplies, there is the small village of Hardwick only three miles away. Meanwhile, the location of this treehouse puts you in prime position to visit many ski resorts. Stowe, Smuggler’s Notch, Jay Peak, and Burke Mountain are all about 1 hour away. Additionally, if you are into mountain biking, check out the world-famous Kingdom Trails in Burke.

Nicole said: “What a wonderful treat to experience an Airbnb owner who takes such pride in their space, goes above and beyond in so many aspects, and creates a wonderful experience for all who stay. The place felt MAGICAL, I don’t know how else to describe it!! Great local recommendations, felt wonderful to unplug and immerse in nature for awhile, and hearing the sound of the stream as you fall asleep was the cherry on top. Was a little nervous about the “compost toilet” but it was completely fine and the bathroom at the main house was close by with a lovely shower and amenities. Couldn’t recommend this place more, if you are on the fence, BOOK! Magical treehouse stay :)”

If you want to get away from it all and recharge your batteries in the woods, then check out this treehouse near Camel’s Hump State Park in northern Vermont. Its spacious and airy interior comes with a bedroom loft, a small living room with a couch, and a kitchen with an electric griddle. There is also a bathroom with an indoor shower as well as a composting toilet.

Outside, there is a large, wraparound balcony that overlooks the babbling brook that provides you with the calming sound of running water. There is also a patio underneath the treehouse, which gives you access to a hammock, a grill, and a firepit.

It is located only ¼ mile from scenic Vermont Route 100 and is close to many ski resorts, such as Stowe Mountain Resort and Sugarbush Ski Resort, which are less than an hour drive away. You would also be only 20 minutes away from the Ben & Jerry’s factory in the village of Waterbury.

Many guests commented on how beautiful the treehouse’s interior was and how relaxed they were during their stay. The owner is also a Superhost, so you can be sure that you receive a high quality stay.
