33 Tennessee Treehouse Rentals, From Luxury to Rustic

by Jan Schroder
Sulfur Ridge Luxury Treehouse

Updated February 19, 2024

Whether you’re seeking a luxury experience (an elevator?!), a romantic getaway or a more rustic back-to-nature approach we’ve found the perfect Tennessee treehouse rentals for you and your family. When you travel, why not make your next vacation one just a bit out of the ordinary?

Some have hot tubs, upscale bathrooms, cozy reading nooks, full-size kitchens, fire pits and one even has an outdoor theater while another has a jukebox! If you’re an animal lover, check out the one on a llama farm. Some of the treehouses are by bubbling creeks, on lakes or have access to swimming holes and fishing ponds.

We have treehouses from Nashville to Chattanooga, Pigeon Forge to Gatlinburg and the most visited national park in the United States. Some are in more remote locations for a true getaway. Several were designed by Pete Nelson, aka the Treehouse Master.

Our best tip for renting a treehouse is to decide what your needs are and read the description carefully. Treehouse rentals can be different than other Airbnbs or hotels so don’t assume anything, even a bathroom in the treehouse, is included.

While some are actual tree houses, others are more like treehouse cabins found closer to the ground – a plus if you have a fear of heights!

Some are pet friendly, sometimes with no additional fee, and some may be great for young children while others may not.

If you have mobility issues, check access to and within the treehouse. You may be surprised to learn you can find treehouses accessible by ramps. But look on the inside as well because some bedrooms are only accessible by a ladder so if heights or ladders aren’t your thing, just keep looking.

Look through all the photos. Some of these listings have over 90 images so you can get a good idea of what you’ll find in the treehouse.

We were looking to rent a treehouse and then read the notes that due to a steep gravel driveway a 4-wheel drive car is strongly recommended. As much as we loved the treehouse, we knew our Mazda3 wouldn’t be up to the challenge.

Unless otherwise noted, all of these treehouses have heating and air.

Please see the tips section of our story You’ll Love These Ohio Treehouse Rentals for Couples, Families for more helpful tips before you rent.
