Ever wanted to have a treehouse in your backyard as a kid? I know I did. I thought they were the coolest things when I would see them in movies. Like your own personal little oasis outside of your bedroom. Well, the older we get sometimes we just want to continue those childhood dreams just in the adult version. One Airbnb host thought the same thing when they created the Glass Tree House in North Carolina for renters. Talk about dream come true!

Travel + Leisure describes the Glass Treehouse as North Carolina’s most wish-listed summer Airbnb. Trust me, I think we can all understand why. The Glass Treehouse is located in Banner Elk, North Carolina, and was named Airbnb’s 2022 most wish-listed Airbnbs in the U.S. According to Travel. + Leisure, the modern home was built in 1969 but underwent full renovations in 2020. The home is 1,050 sq. ft. of space for guests to enjoy tucked into the side of a North Carolina mountain. It is in a private area, but you will not be far from town to enjoy shopping, restaurants, galleries, and more. The home’s decor features a unique, modern flair. With white and wood accents, a spa-like bathroom, and other features guests never want to leave.

The Glass Treehouse is also one of Airbnb’s most viral homes. From Tik Tok videos to Instagram posts, everyone loves experiencing the Glass Tree House. Learn more about the Glass Tree House and its available dates here.
