Tree houses aren’t what they used to be! When we were kids, tree houses were slabs of wood that may or may not have been held safely together between some branches above our heads. If we were lucky, it actually had some resemblance of a club house or fort to keep the girls out! Those kinds of tree houses still exist for the fun of kids, but today, we are going to look at modern day tree houses for adults! We’ve certainly come a long way with what we can do as a new form of lodging experiences. Below is a list of 9 Ohio based Tree House lodging options, many of whom are currently taking reservations for this summer.
Life After COVID 19
This too, shall pass. For some of you, this pandemic has been bothersome or just annoying. For others, it has been financially devastating, and still others, it has been deadly. What we can all agree upon, is that life after COVID 19 will be different than life before.
I predict companies will realize they don’t need to spend as much money on physical office space and allow more people to work from home. Some businesses, who are using creative ways to stay afloat, may permanently adopt their new course of business strategies and continue with their new procedures. Most businesses avoid major paradigm shifts within their structure unless forced due to events outside of their control. This pandemic is that crisis. For this reason, local businesses most likely feel the brunt more so than Fortune 500 companies.
For these reasons, I am promoting local Ohio based Tree House businesses, since I am an Ohioan myself. Once this virus settles and the world can get back to life, let’s get out there and get this economy moving! Now let’s find us some tree houses!

If life just feels too uncertain to take the plunge and make reservations, use this information to do your research and decide where you might want to stay. If you need extra help with your travel planning, refer to my post about Travel Planning Sites – The Top 5 to get you started. It’s good for your mental health to dream a little about better times ahead. I know I’m working now on my future travel plans!
There’s never a bad time to think about the future and where you want to go. Future planning takes your mind off the stress of today. Currently, 3 out of 4 Americans are on home isolation to help prevent the spread of the COVID 19. This means more people are on line searching, reading, learning. Make the most of this unique time to think about how to celebrate health as we can once again venture outdoors and support our community businesses. Perhaps I’ll run into you out there – among the trees!
