Aren’t These Treehouses in Ontario Amazing?
Is your inner child jumping with joy at the thought of staying in one of these incredible Airbnbs? I know mine sure is! It certainly isn’t your typical getaway but I bet it will be an adventure you won’t forget.
As you can tell, some of these treehouse Airbnbs in Ontario are a little more primitive than others. For the more rustic options, I do not recommend them to someone who has no experience camping before. There are certain things you’ll need to think about like how to store and cook your food off-grid, etc that can be stressful if you’ve never done it. At the same time, this is also a great way to try a backcountry-style adventure for the first time.
Whatever you choose, just make sure you do a little bit of research so you’re properly prepared so as to not ruin your awesome treehouse getaway! Oh, and don’t forget to read the Airbnb descriptions thoroughly before you book. Each listing will tell you exactly what you need for your adventure amongst the trees.
