The rolling hills, lush forests, mysterious Mammoth Caves, and the gorgeous state-protected Red River Gorge are just some of the sights that draw in nature lovers every year. There are also plenty of hiking and trekking spots in the state. What better way to enjoy the natural scenery than to check-in at a treehouse hotel?

This highly elevated Kentucky treehouse located in Eastern White Pine provides some great views of the Red River Gorge. It has multiple levels accessible by climbing several spiral staircases.

Another unit has hammocks and sofa beds while another contains the fully stocked kitchen. The outhouse — where the toilet and bathroom are — is found at a separate cottage.
