From barbecue to beer, from the wilds of the Ozark Mountains to the bustling streets of St. Louis, and from the theme parks of Branson to the historic Getaway Arch, Missouri is the perfect destination for someone who wants to dip their toes in all sorts of Midwestern experiences.

This is certainly more than “fly-over country,” so don’t make the mistake of looking over Missouri the next time you’re planning a Midwestern trip. But where’s the best place to stay while you explore the Show-Me State?

While you could book a roadside motel along Route 66 in Springfield or a luxury hotel room in St. Louis, a treehouse rental in Missouri is best for travelers who want a unique, out of the ordinary stay. These nine amazing Missouri treehouse rentals can be yours tonight with just a few taps of your smartphone.

Why you should stay: Rustic and romantic treehouse for two near the Ozarks.

The separate building is your bathroom, outfitted with a jacuzzi tub overlooking the tree limbs below. Private, peaceful, and with just enough room for two to enjoy, you’ll wonder why you’ve waited so long to enjoy treehouse living. By the way, this Missouri treehouse rental books quickly, so make your plans as soon as possible.

This is not your average treehouse. With room enough for nine to spend the night, this treehouse on a farm comes with the rustic amenities you might expect, such as an old-timey hot tub (a.k.a., a hot tub made out of tin) and some pretty lively neighbors like chickens, goats, ducks, and pups.

Inside the treehouse, the vibe is more like a colorful college dorm than a woodsy retreat, making it a great choice for a group of traveling friends or a family. There’s a full kitchen with a stove and a full-sized fridge and ample sleeping space, including bunk beds and even handy hammocks.

  • Location: Hermann

Why you should stay: Live out your cottagecore dreams in a rolling field near Mark Twain National Forest.

  • Location: Bunker
  • Sleeps: 4
  • Minimum stay: 2 nights
  • Rates from: $89/night

If your getaway daydreams include lots of wildflowers and gently rolling fields of grass leading up to tree-lined waterscapes, then you’ll love a stay at the Almost Heaven Treehouse.

It’s in a wide meadow dotted with flowers, water features, and other carefully curated landscaping choices.

Wade in the creek, watch the wildlife, cozy up next to a roaring fire at night, or play some lawn games like croquet or badminton — you have near-endless ways to leisurely pass the day away. Be sure to make time for stargazing, as the treehouse sits on a dark sky viewing area. If you do decide to leave the property, Mark Twain National Forest has tons of trails, including the beautiful Greer Spring Trail.

By the way, don’t expect any cell phone service here.
