5 Stunning Treehouses For Kids and Kids-At-Heart

These sweet spaces are perfect for escaping reality


Perched high above the ground, treehouses are familiar to everyone—we've read about them in fairy tales and we've seen them in movies as a cool hangout. As kids, you probably wanted to have your own haven but have forgotten about it along the way. In some cases, however, people take it to next level by building the hideaway of their dreams from their younger years. Here are a few of the most interesting ones we found online: 

Almost invisible to the naked eye, the Mirror House in North of Sweden is the perfect weekend hideout. It is part of the Tree Hotel project designed by Tham & Videgard and its interiors are as cool as it looks from the outside. The only con? Wild birds might not be able to see it and accidentally hit the windows.

If you're thinking about spending a couple of days painting and writing the hours away, this luxurious treehouse made out of wood and glass is the perfect place for letting your creative juices flow. Built on the base of a large pine tree, the Banyan Treehouse overlooks downtown Los Angeles and isolated from all the city noise. 

For anyone who is a fan of minimalist-inspired spaces, the 4Treehouse in Ontario, Canada will be a hit. It stands on four trees over Lake Muskoka and floats in the air like a big Japanese lantern on stilts. 

Designed by Baumraum, this treehouse can be found in Hechtel-Eksel, Belgium and aims to helps to close the gap between the economy and ecology. Not only does it let nature indoors, it is fully equipped with state-of-the-art eco facilities that you will find in a modern home. 

The La Casa Del Arbol in the Ecuadorian city of Banos is not for those who are afraid of heights. Beside the house, there is a small swing set that sails 2,600 meters above sea level—it's so high that some locals say a ride can give a glimpse of the edge of the world.
