5 Best Treehouse Cabins Near St. Louis, Missouri - Updated 2024

| 3 min read

Known as the “Gateway to the West”, St. Louis is one of the biggest cities in Missouri. The city was named after King Louis IX of France and it grew exponentially during pioneers’ expeditions to the west in the 19th century. St. Louis was purchased by the United States and further economic expansion of the city grew during the steamboat era as St. Louis due to its strategic position on the confluence of the Mississippi River. Today, the city is a major cosmopolitan city with gorgeous neighborhoods like Lafayette Square, and iconic landmarks like Forest Park. While there are plenty of cool places to stay in the city, those who are looking for somewhere more unique might want to consider staying in a treehouse. Check out the best treehouse cabins near St. Louis, Missouri.
