Not wrongly nicknamed, Maine, is definitely the ‘Vacationland’ of the USA. With its long coastline and dense woods, rounded off by excellent seafood, abundant blueberries and exclusive culture, the state of Maine tops the charts in terms of both settlements and tourism. The Atlantic Ocean watches over the rocky beaches, which give way to dense thickets of coniferous trees, low-lying meditative mountains and ample opportunity for us mortals to enjoy a hearty dose of nature. During winters, huge and humble moose roam about Mount Katahdin. Serenity goes hand in hand with barely controlled excitement for those who choose to take a breather here. For rumbling gizzards and expectant taste buds, one of the best seafood dishes in the world awaits – lobster. However, the experience would be incomplete without staying at one of Maine’s renowned treehouses. Constructed in the most apt spots throughout the region, they serve as the nucleus for comfort and wild trysts with nature. Check out these best treehouse vacation rentals in Maine, the USA.
This treehouse rental in Maine is situated at such a strategic point that it offers the best arboreal view of rivers and sweeping forestland. Located in a coastal village overlooking the confluence of Back River and Kennebec River and sitting atop a fairly wooded hillock, this 21-acre (8.5-hectare) property has three tiny houses in the form of treehouses. These are two-story living dwellings connected via a rope bridge to another complementary structure. In winters, attain nirvana by relaxing in the cedar hot tub, gazing at the snow.

The ruggedness of Stoneham is beautifully balanced with the sprawling 25-acre (10.1-hectare) property, complete with a 1,200 square-foot (111.5 square-meter) treehouse and other smaller ones, equipped with luxuries and an 18-hole disc golf course.
Make your evenings more magical with the BBQ grill supplied by the host and get attuned to the nocturnal call of the wild. Even if you’re indoors, the plush interiors and full-scale kitchen will not mar the seclusion that you’ve chosen. On golden mornings, hike down to Virginia Lake, whose crystal waters and clean beach will set you at ease, even more.
