Looking for a fun way to spend a weekend or special holidays? Check out the newest trend in glamping – modern, high tech and sustainable treehouses. The Dove Men+Care Elements 360-square-foot treehouse includes a private bath, climate control, high-speed Wi-Fi and a stocked refrigerator. It truly is a “spa in the sky.”
What’s The Inspiration?
The Elements Treehouse is located at the base of Lookout Mountain near downtown Chattanooga, TN. With its inspiration by Dove’s Elements product range, it stands out for its state-of-the-art bathroom constructed of natural elements and sweeping forest views.
The treehouse is the second house for rent at a treehouse resort – Treetop Hideaways in Flintstone, GA, which local entrepreneurs Andrew Alms and Enoch Elwell founded. Treetop Hideaways was an idea to allow childhood memories to flourish. Moreover, families can experience sustainable living close to the city.
What To Expect?
Pete Nelson, a world-renowned treehouse architect, host of Treehouse Masters and owner of Nelson Treehouse and Supply, designed the Dove Men+Care Elements Treehouse. In addition, it features modern architectural designs surrounded by nature and utilizes the most efficient and sustainable systems.
In the treehouse, a wooden staircase leads you to the living sage wall entryway and Japanese Shou Sugi Ban-style charcoal wood. Will Taylor, founder of Bright Bazaar, interior designed the treehouse. It is done in a nature-inspired style, with sage bedding, charcoal-etched wall art, and sandalwood accents. Also, green, white and grey Earth tones create a rustic yet contemporary ambiance for the treehouse.
What To Do
First, sip on local MayFly coffee while lounging on the private deck. To relax, feel the cool morning mist, listen to the sounds of birds chirping and the flowing stream on property.
Then, connect to Alexa to play your favorite music as you nap in the Tuft and Needle queen mattress. If you want to sightsee while lounging, climb to the two-bed loft to see the tree canopy through the skylights. There is something romantic about staring at the scenery through a skylight that makes you feel so relaxed and at home. If you’re inspired by the sights and want to take a piece of the treehouse with you, make sure to look for a skylights dealer near you, so you can always have that vacation feeling – but in your own home! It really does make the treehouse something special, along with the other features within the vacation spot. In addition to the aroma of sage, enter a cozy sitting area with furniture made of reclaimed wood.
To further relax, freshen up in the spa-inspired Elements bathroom, which is the focal point of the treehouse. Features include charcoal wood paneling, clay sink, heated floors, temperature-controlled 5-head shower, linen robes, Dove Men+Care Elements toiletries, and a glass-enclosed tree in the bathroom with skylight and see-through flooring. Here you can feel like you are showering in the forest, yet have your preferred water heat set on the digital keypad.
If you want to soak in the great outdoors, grab a cold beer from the refrigerator and get some steaks or hot dogs started on the outdoor grill. The fireplace is perfect for roasting marshmallows under the stars, enjoying nature and reminiscing about good old campfires.
