On the outside, it looks like a rustic, old-school treehouse; but on the inside, it packs a lot of features that validate the saying ‘don’t judge a book by its cover’. It has a 4K smart TV, an outdoor hot tub perched on the deck, a Keurig coffee maker for your caffeine needs, and a refrigerator to keep things as chill as you feel while at the treehouse. Though the house has no bathroom, there’s a nearby guest bathroom a few steps away from the accommodation. This is one of the best tree houses in Virginia to see local wildlife such as flying squirrels since it is situated in the middle of a forest. At night, you will hear frog croaks and crickets singing, making your stay seem like an authentic experience. Other features include free parking, complimentary toiletries, and a BBQ grill.
