Why you should stay: Savor breathtaking views close to a state park.

  • Nearest town: Glen Rose
  • Sleeps: 2
  • Minimum stay: 2 nights
  • Rates from: $199/night

Just west of Dinosaur Valley State Park, The Birdhouse at Skybox Cabins is a rustic spot where you can unplug from city life. And speaking of unplugging, there’s no TV or internet here, but who needs that when you have the 50-acre property to explore? As you’re hiking around the area (which has a sometimes-creek, depending on rainfall), keep an eye out for deer, jackrabbits, horses, and cows, or one of the owner’s friendly dogs.

During your stay, make sure you carve out some time to enjoy a beautiful Texas sunrise or sunset from the balcony, which offers an incredible vista. Since it’s in the country, The Birdhouse is also a great spot for stargazing, made even more enjoyable when you’re unwinding down by the fire pit. If you’re searching for Texas treehouse rentals for a big group, this is a great choices as there are several homes on the property.

Why you should stay: Thoughtful guest amenities paired with an expansive ranch ripe for exploration.

  • Nearest town: Baird
  • Sleeps: 2
  • Minimum stay: 2 nights
  • Rates from: $275/night

It’s like a giant playground for adults at Ryders Treehouse. Here, you can take a nap out on the hammock, make some s’mores by the fire pit, enjoy the views from the chair swing, and cook up a delicious dinner in the grill area.

Since the place is in the center of an 800-acre ranch, you’ll get plenty of privacy while you indulge in a little R&R. While the treehouse property may be fenced in, you’re welcome to wander the rest of the ranch anytime you want to stretch your legs. And while you can certainly drive to nearby cafes for grub, you’ll have one meal taken care of: the hosts provide breakfast supplies, including those for the all-important mimosa, to use during your stay.

“The pictures almost don’t do it justice. Ryder’s treehouse was the perfect place to stay for a few days on our honeymoon.”

  • Nearest town: Wills Point
  • Sleeps: 2
  • Minimum stay: 2 nights

Inside, large windows that cover almost the entire wall mean you can enjoy nature even when staying comfortable indoors.

Keep the mood going by booking a reservation at the nearby Four Winds Steakhouse. This upscale but unpretentious dining spot is known for its homestyle dishes like a 26-ounce bone-in ribeye and the jumbo lump crab cakes. It’s certainly one of the more luxurious Texas treehouse rentals available on Airbnb.

Why you should stay: Lakeside living with your own pool and hot tub.

  • Location: Lakeway
  • Sleeps: 4
  • Minimum stay: 2 nights

With its unique decagon shape, vaulted ceilings, and panoramic windows, The Treehouse is one of the best Texas treehouse rentals for a special occasion or small family holiday. It looks like it could be on a lagoon in The Bahamas, rather than tucked away in the Lone Star State.

6. The Extraordinary Treehouse

Why you should stay: Is this a treehouse or an exotic five-star hotel?

  • Location: Dallas
  • Sleeps: 4
  • Minimum stay: 2 nights
  • Rates from: $265/night

This stunning Treehouse may be in a Dallas suburb, but it feels like you’ve escaped into your own private oasis thanks to winding footpaths that take you through a forested canopy and over a footbridge to reach the home. It delivers big when it comes to rustic elegance in a serene setting. Rows of large windows that stretch to the top of the high ceilings make it feel like you’re truly immersed in nature and the use of natural materials inside creates some seriously organic vibes — mixed with luxurious touches, of course.

If the feeling ever strikes to venture outside of this beautiful haven, White Rock Lake and the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden are but a quick drive away.

7. The Machan

Why you should stay: An African-inspired escape in Hill Country.

  • Nearest town: Dripping Springs
  • Sleeps: 2
  • Minimum stay: 2 nights
  • Rates from: $265/night

The Machan pays a nod to Africa with its name, architecture, and design, though it is, in fact, a Texas treehouse rental rather than an international getaway. The word “Machan” refers to a raised platform used to watch for game, and with bamboo walls and thatched ceilings, this rental is also above the ground — but with more oak trees than tigers.

While you may not be able to spot any endangered species, you may see other interesting wildlife from the private deck. There’s also animal spotting (get it?) of a different kind, with animal print decor inside the bedroom.

One of the highlights of The Machan is its proximity to local wineries, breweries, and tasting rooms. Solaro Estate Winery, Jester King Brewery, Deep Eddy Vodka Tasting Room, and Twisted X Brewing Company are all in the area and worth a visit.

Why you should stay: A relaxed stay with cool communal outdoor space.

  • Nearest town: Dripping Springs
  • Sleeps: 2
  • Minimum stay: 2 nights
  • Rates from: $121/night

Nautical design in an elevated treehouse? It may not be the first pairing that comes to mind but the Nautical House makes it work. Touches of bright blues and assorted maritime decor dot this rental, which happens to be lofted eight feet off the ground.

While the whole house is your private space during your stay, there are common areas on the ground shared by all guests on the property. So you can get a fire going, play a round of corn hole, or dine al fresco on one of the picnic tables. If you’re looking for Texas treehouse rentals that can accomodate a decent-sized group, this is a great pick as there are several raised rentals across the grounds.

In terms of local attractions, the beautiful hiking trails of Pedernales Falls State Park are just down the road while Bell Springs Winery is only a few minutes in the other direction.

Why you should stay: One-of-a-kind lodging options with on-site zip lining and serious tropical vibes.

  • Nearest town: Spicewood
  • Sleeps: 6
  • Minimum stay: 2 nights
  • Rates from: $200/night

There’s not one, not two, but five treehouses to pick from at Cypress Valley. Located nearby one another on the same property, each of these thoughtfully designed accommodations offers its own unique experience.

The Yoki Treehouse comes with an onsen-style soaking tub, connected to the bedroom by a bridge. For those on more of a budget, the Juniper and Willow are quaint, single-room spaces with small outside porches. A yurt built around a cypress tree trunk, the Lofthaven has its own private bathhouse with a fancy waterfall tub. And then there’s the Nest, which has multiple rooms, structures, and levels to explore – a great choice for families with kids. No matter which you pick, you’ll get the feel of staying in the jungle in some tropical land, even though you’re just hangin’ out in Texas.

You won’t have to go far for fun at Cypress Valley. There are zipline canopy tours on-site plus a small pool and lake, both perfect for an afternoon dip.
