Treehouse vibes in Vermont

What kid would pass up the chance to spend the night in a treehouse? Your kids will have a blast walking along the bridge to get to the cutest treehouse you’ve ever seen. The house was built to let the trees be a part of the house and go right through the floors everywhere. You could easily fit a family of five in here, and maybe more if you got creative.

The pictures are breathtaking and look straight out of a fantasy fairytale. All of the natural wood inside makes it feel like you never actually go inside anywhere. Our favorite detail is the fairy lights that light up the covered bridge at night. The house boasts kid’s toys, books, and board games. For cleaning, they use the 5-step, enhanced cleaning standards to keep you and your family safe.

Every kid’s dream is to check out the inside of a lighthouse. If you have a large family or want to get away with another smaller family unit, this home can fit at least eight people. The host follows the 5-step COVID enhanced cleaning process.
