Author's Note: 10 Awesome Tree Houses You Can Stay In

I never had a tree fort when I was a kid, and I think that absence made me more drawn to tree houses as an adult. There's something special about being suspended in a tree while enjoying the comforts of home, and I think that's why people are so interested in these types of structures. If I could choose any of these tree houses to spend a night in, I think I'd go with the Green Magic Treehouse Resort in India, if only to test out the water lift in person.
