Kentucky, the Bluegrass State, is not only famous for its bourbon and horse racing, but also for the bluegrass that adorns its picturesque pastures.

Lexington (the Horse Capital of the World) and Louisville - the state’s largest cities - are found in its Bluegrass Region. Watch a heart-pounding horse race, participate in one of its lively festivals, or sample some bourbon at a distillery. Iconic places like Mary Todd-Lincoln’s historic home are a must-see! 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? Scroll below for the 15 best treehouse vacation rentals in Kentucky, the USA.
