At six o’clock, we wake up with a start. What was that? A moose? A bear? No, it seems we have a guest. A squirrel just entered through the open window looking for food. We stay in bed by the window a little longer scouting for an actual moose, but no such luck today. Our little friend has got company, though. The eight-meter-high balcony is alive with songbirds we can’t name, and several other squirrels chase each other around the cabin, now on the outside, while waiting for us to get up and hand feed them sunflower seeds.
Tree houses have become incredibly popular, and you can now sleep in the treetops in several locations around the country. You can choose anything from gorgeous designer cabins to rambling builds that will make anyone’s childhood tree house dream come true. Most have fantastic views and are situated in good hiking and skiing terrain, often on the brink of small fishing ponds where you can go canoeing in the summer.
The nature experiences at the cabins are up close and intense. In addition to squirrels and songbirds, you may spot moose, deer, beaver and wood grouse. The silence is only disturbed by the wind in the treetops, and the clear starry sky is overwhelmingly beautiful. So is the six o’clock morning sun.
The tree houses are all incredibly popular, so book early if you want to spend a night or two in a tree.
