Maybe you saw that treehouse for sale in Mill Valley and thought: I want to give that a try.
Maybe you're just bored with another reno'd in-law in Napa.
Or maybe life in a treehouse sounds just about right for this cultural moment.
Whatever your motivation: Let's stay in a treehouse. This weekend.
These five abodes have views to live for, guaranteed.
Where: Los Gatos
Wifi? Bathroom? Yes. "Inside the main house."
Views of: Monterey Bay
Other pertinent? This is actually a tent on an elevated platform, which sounds to us quite true to the treehouse spirit. Also, you're in a vineyard, so bonus for even better views than you might think.
Wifi? Bathroom? No to wifi, yes to bathroom.
Views of: Santa Cruz Mountains
Other pertinent? Not as much elevation as other properties — but you do get plumbing in the space as well as a gas heater and stove, plus the services of a mouse-hungry cat.
Wifi? Bathroom? Yes and yes.
Views of: The mighty Pacific — from a hammock.
Other pertinent? This is a luxe duplex — most notable for a full-on kitchen, ideal for those who want to entertain — it sleeps six — while taking in the view.
Wifi? Bathroom? Yes. Downstairs, in the main residence, with your own entrance.
Views of: The Bay
Other pertinent? The most treehouse-y of all our treehouse options, it's literally built into a 150-year-old oak tree. There are no kitchen facilities — but the owners will help arrange pizza delivery to the treehouse.
Wifi? Bathroom? No. A chemical toilet in the treehouse and a regular one in the main.
Views of: The Sonoma countryside
Other pertinent? A rambling treehouse over several stories, connected by ladders — the vibe is extremely rustic.
