Texas is full of eclectic and unforgettable places to stay, and treehouses are no exception. Why stay at a boring hotel next to the freeway when you can be sleeping in a treehouse? Wake up in sprawling trees out in the quiet countryside, with the birds, bees and scenic views. Relaxing on a deck in the trees, having coffee or a cocktail enjoying a beautiful sunset or sunrise can really refresh your soul.
