Did you know there are treehouses in Ohio that are rented for overnight guests? I’m not talking about the type of treehouse you played in as a kid. I’m talking about treehouses on steroids.
Treehouses perfect for the adventure lover, complete with an outdoor shower and grill.
Or a treehouse that features upscale linens and a steam shower sized for two, providing the perfect backdrop for a romantic getaway.
Or the treehouse that allows you to prop your feet up on your private deck, sip a glass of wine and watch as deer frolic nearby in the trees.
It may surprise you but some of these treehouses are perfect for families too.
Treehouses in Ohio to Stay In
You’ll find several locations in Ohio that are popular destinations for treehouses.
The most well-known and perhaps best treehouse rentals are located in the Mohican area, Hocking Hills and Amish Country, but more are always popping up. There’s even a KOA that offers family treehouses!
If you’re ready to plan your treehouse getaways in Ohio check out the following options.
Mohican Treehouse Resort
Officially known as The Mohicans (The Grand Barn, Mohican Cabins & Treehouses) this is the only treehouse village east of the Mississippi.
Read our post on things to do when you’re staying in the treehouses.
You can learn about each of the treehouses below and I’ve also shared links to reviews I’ve written if it’s a treehouse I’ve stayed in.
Treehouse Cabins for Rent at The Mohican Treehouse Resort
The White Oak
The first and largest of the treehouses, this treehouse is ideal for traveling as a family.
Keep in mind that the second bedroom is a loft with ladder access so it’s best for families with children old and mature enough not to horse around.
This treehouse was made in partnership with famed treehouse designer, Pete Nelson.
My husband and I have stayed in The White Oak (review coming) and loved it. This is a great treehouse for someone who doesn’t want to climb stairs (you do walk downhill) but still wants the experience. Nestled on the side of a hill, the treehouse looks out over the gorge and is a great spot for watching the sunrise.
Little Red Treehouse- Currently under renovation (2023)
If you’re a fan of the Treehouse Masters show, chances are you’ve taken a virtual tour of this property designed by Pete Nelson.
This property was originally built in 2013 as a brewery but has been renovated with a loft bedroom to allow for two cozy overnight guests.

Tin Shed Treehouse
Other than the Silver Bullet, the Tin Shed has been my favorite treehouse to stay in.
It’s also currently the most secluded of the treehouses located on a piece of the property away from the other treehouses but near the main entrance so you don’t feel totally cut off from everyone.
This treehouse will sleep four with two queen size beds accessible by climbing a ladder to the loft. My favorite amenity? The wall is made from a garage door that opens to bring nature indoors during warmer weather.
Read my review of the Tin Shed here.
Old Pine Treehouse
The first treehouse my husband and I ever stayed in at The Mohicans, this treehouse got its name because you’ll find it standing amidst the only grove of pine trees on the property.
Perfect for two but with room for four, this property boasts a wrap-around deck for outdoor dining.
You’ll find our review of the Old Pine here.
El Castillo Treehouse
This two-story treehouse has room for four, but I think it’s perfect for two.
This treehouse offers plenty of open space with a King-sized bed in the open loft, and a queen-size Murphy bed tucked into the wall on the first floor.
Built by local Amish, you’ll appreciate the craftsmanship used in constructing this property made from reclaimed materials.

The Silver Bullet Treehouse
The most unique of the treehouses at The Mohicans is this vintage Airstream camper.
This tiny house is on a large platform, 25 feet in the air, and refurbished with all the comforts of home, including an impressive steam shower large enough for two.
You can read about our experience in the Silver Bullet treehouse.
The Nest Treehouse Mohicans
The Nest is for you if you’re looking for a romantic treehouse getaway.
Designed by renowned treehouse designer, Roderick Romero, this one-room treehouse was created with honeymooners in mind but is the perfect dwelling for any couple celebrating a milestone event.
The Moonlight Treehouse Cabin
The comfortable pillows and luxurious fabrics lend themselves to a romantic evening in this farmhouse-style treehouse with reclaimed wood, stainless steel, and a private deck to observe the wildlife or enjoy sipping a glass of wine.
My husband and I recently stayed in The Moonlight treehouse (review coming). I loved the large windows throughout the cabin, the private deck and the kitchen that had everything I needed to prepare a Home Chef meal kit.
The View Treehouse Mohican
The View Treehouse at the Mohicans got its name from the amazing view of the surrounding area.
This property also has room for 3-4 guests, but once again, I think it’s perfect for a romantic getaway.
Reserve a Treehouse at The Mohicans
I’ve provided reviews to each of the treehouses I’ve stayed in above but you don’t have to take my word for it when I say I enjoyed staying in each of the unique lodging options. You can visit Tripadvisor to read reviews or book your stay. You can also book directly from The Mohicans.
Helpful Things to Know about Staying at The Mohicans
In addition to canoeing, hiking, and zip lining, you’ll find downtown Loudonville to have several fun specialty shops such as the Creative Outlet Indian Store, which honors the Native Americans who once hunted on these lands and Resellables Thrift Store, where I’ve been known to pick up a bargain or two on vintage collectibles.
Several scenic byways provide plenty of opportunities to enjoy the views. There’s also an amazing restaurant, Black Fork Bistro, where I eat every time I’m in town.
The Mohicans are far enough out of town that it’s not convenient to run in for every meal.
If you’re staying for more than one night, make sure you make a trip to the store for some provisions before you head to the treehouse.
The Mohicans consist of nine treehouses and four cabins nestled in the woods at a popular wedding venue.
The Mohicans treehouse availability can be a bit tricky since the wedding party and guests have the first option of renting treehouses on the property.
The best bet for this venue is not to plan too far in advance.
Plan to check for availability six weeks from the date you hope to stay and even reach out to the office for availability. If the date you’re looking for is unavailable, check back. The effort is worth it.
Tip: If you’re on Instagram, go ahead and give The Mohicans a follow and keep an eye on their stories. You’ll be the first to know about last-minute deals that may save you 30-50% off an overnight stay.
Amish Treehouses in Ohio
Located near the largest Amish population in the world, the Berlin Woods Treehouses are your place to get away from it all and relax.
Whether you’ve spent the day shopping in the Amish-owned businesses or enjoy time driving along the many scenic backroads that are guaranteed to provide views of Amish homes, buggies and even bare-foot Amish children on their way to or from school.
You’ll find two Amish treehouse rental companies in Holmes County.
Berlin Woods Treehouses and Pine Cove Lodging both offer a private setting just outside Berlin.
Both locations are secluded but minutes from the hustle and bustle of town. If you want to run out and grab a bite to eat or shop before relaxing in front of the fireplace, you won’t have a long drive to do so.
While the treehouses are great for couples, Berlin Woods also have treehouse cabins that can accommodate up to six people.
Treehouse #2 has been featured on HGTV and is unique because it is one of the tallest and largest treehouses you can rent in Ohio and in the United States.

Pine Cove Lodging offers treehouses specifically designed for couples and is popular for honeymoon and anniversary stays.
The rustic interior features Amish workmanship, a stone two-person jetted tub, hardwood floors, and hand-crafted Amish furniture.
You’ll find a private back porch with rocking chairs and an electric grill.
Hocking Hills Treehouses
Located in southeastern Ohio, Hocking Hills is known as one of the state’s most scenic areas.
Once you visit, you’ll be hooked and will want to plan an annual getaway to the area year after year. Hocking Hills is a hiker’s paradise due to the number of popular trails that wind through the area.
More and more people are visiting the area to rent a cabin and unplug, which is easy because most of the area doesn’t have cell coverage.
The small Appalachian towns that dot the landscape offer restaurants with down-home country food, shops with locally made wares, and history galore.
Among the Trees offers a large lodge and several smaller treehouses to stay in, and each offers all the amenities of home.
The Buckeye Barn Tree House and Maple View Treehouse each sleep four people, while the Safari Treehouse has room for two.
