Why you should stay: Affordable treehouse near hip Charleston.

  • Location: Walton
  • Sleeps: 2
  • Minimum stay: 1 night
  • Rates from: $60/night

Visiting Charleston, one of the largest cities in West Virginia, doesn’t mean you have to give up your dreams of enjoying some of the state’s best scenery. Take just a short drive outside the city to find this adorable treehouse on a farm you’ll have all to yourself.

Prepare to flash back to being 8 years old, ’cause this treehouse has exposed wood finishes similar to what you might see in a traditional kids’ treehouse, hand-painted signage, fairy lights, and a strict “members only” policy.

You’ll have to decide for yourself if you want to require a password for any visiting guests, such as the farm pup. When it’s time to climb down from your perch, you’ll have a hammock on the ground level.

Why you should stay: Classic treehouse with no need to climb stairs.

  • Location: Beaver
  • Sleeps: 4
  • Minimum stay: 2 nights
  • Rates from: $129/night

Treehouses — and a lot of outdoor-focused activities and accommodations, really — aren’t always the most accessible, but that’s luckily not the case with this West Virginia treehouse.

The cabin-like treehouse features a long flat ramp and is easy to reach since it’s part of a larger multi-cabin compound. That also makes it a great place to stay if your crew needs to rent multiple treehouses in West Virginia. Take note that you will need to go down stairs to reach the hot tub behind the home.

Another great perk? The treehouse is outfitted with heat and air so you’ll be comfortable year-round no matter what the weather.
