Never one to pass up the unique, I found this place while looking for cabins in Southern Illinois. First, the pictures online do it no justice. We stayed at the White Oak treehouse and it is awe-inspiring in person. The owners thought of everything you need in a great cabin and put that in a tree! Speaking of owners, they are warm and friendly, ready to assist as needed. It's so close to the Garden of the Gods and there's a swimming lake nearby.
One caveat, but not about the resort: bring your own food since this is country living and closest grocery store/restaurant is 30 minutes
This place lets you remember what it was like to be a kid who could dream under the stars in a treehouse.
