Travelers who want a more remote treehouse rental in South Carolina are in luck, too. If you want to fall asleep listening to frog song and spend your days running the trails and waterways of South Carolina, lie your head at this large treehouse offered by Carolina Heritage Outfitters. Deep in the woods, the treehouse normally serves as a stopping point for travelers making the companies’ 23-mile-long self-guided canoe trip.

You’ll be equipped you with a canoe and sent down the river. After around 13 miles, you’ll arrive at your treehouse ready to welcome you and stocked with the basics. The restroom is an outhouse and, as for a shower, well, your best bet is taking a dip in the river — but if it’s an authentic backwoods experience you want, that’s exactly what you’ll get.

Why you should stay: For tropical waterfront vibes.

  • Location: Beaufort
  • Sleeps: 2
  • Minimum Stay: 3 nights

The island is accessible via a 2,000-foot boardwalk to the mainland, but you won’t have to walk it. Instead, you’ll have a golf cart to get you to your treehouse, where you’ll find a vibrant, tropical-themed interior that matches the palms and water just outside the front door.

Enter the Honeymoon Treehouse, which is sure to make a honeymoon (or any special trip) just a bit more memorable. The treehouse looks out over the water from a two-story wall of windows with a white-on-white on white design that’s more European elegance than Southern chic. Special touches include a skylight over the bed, chandeliers, a huge soaking tub, an outdoor shower, and a hot tub.

Need something a little less over-the-top? The property also offers the Wildflower Treehouse at a more affordable nightly rate. It has a more toned-down, boho-chic style.
