Fall asleep amongst the rustle of leaves and the peaceful chirping of birds with a stay at one of these enchanting treehouse rentals in Wisconsin.

Wisconsin’s natural beauty is what the state is famous for, and nothing helps amplify a journey into nature more than staying in a treehouse. Why just visit nature when you can actually be a part of it?

In the north, you’ll find treehouses near jaw-dropping natural wonders like the dramatic sea caves of the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore.

And in the southwest, you can wake up amongst the rolling hills and dense forests of the Driftless Area, a region untouched by advancing glaciers millions of years ago. On top of that, Wisconsin has countless gorgeous places in-between.

Consider one of these unique treehouses in Wisconsin for your next adventure.

1. The Meadow House

  • Location: Richland Center
  • Sleeps: 2
  • Minimum stay: 2-3 nights

The Meadow House at Anaway Place is an outdoor resort focused on providing quiet relaxation immersed in the beauty of Wisconsin’s Driftless Area.

Perched atop a hill, the cabin’s all-glass walls bring the breathtaking surroundings and colorful sunsets indoors. Other lovely touches like reclaimed wooden floors, tall ceilings, and a wood-burning stove provide some of the coziest vibes in the state.

The 80-acre property hosts a few unique vacation rentals spread out to maximize privacy, and guests are free to take a stroll and pack a picnic on the expansive property.

The cabin also has a private fire pit for evenings under the stars. While visiting, you can pick up artisanal goodies and home decor at Anaway’s onsite store. Not far from the home, soak up Richland Center’s small-town charm with a visit to the Starlite 14 Drive-In or Wild Hills Winery.
