No matter what type of escape you’re looking for, North Carolina offers something for just about everyone.

You’ll find everything from lush mountains with cascading waterfalls to rich history and culture in the state. Add in a thriving wine scene, complete with wine trails and vineyards for touring and tasting, plus more than 300 miles of coastline, and you’ll see why it’s one of the East Coast’s favorite getaways.

Of course, you’ll need a great base to take advantage of all the state has to offer, so why not consider something unique? As a kid, there were probably few things better than having a treehouse (or at least a friend with one.) But these days, treehouses are definitely not just for kids.

In fact, you can even book your own luxury treehouse rental in North Carolina – or perhaps you’d prefer more of an open-air glamping experience? Either way, the Tarheel State offers dozens of epic Airbnb treehouse stays. Here are the best eight to inspire you to get packing.
