The Joshua Treehouse, Virginia

Surprisingly large for a treehouse (400 sq ft), this spot has river views, a spiral staircase, marble shower, and a fireplace. Plus, it's got a great kitchen, cozy queen bed, and a porch with idyllic river views. You'll feel like a bird in a bird house and probably won't be mad about it. Cozy and quaint, it's perfect for two and way more like a charming studio than a rustic treehouse.

Blue Ridge Mountain Cabin, Virginia

The Blue Ridge Mountains are magic and if you haven't been (even if you aren't into hiking the Appalachian Trail) you should consider a visit ASAP. They're secluded but not remote and will make you love the woods even more than you already did. This cabin is super cute, close to a bunch of great hikes, and has just the right amount of rustic meets simple living you're looking for. It can sleep 7 guests plus there's a loft and a wood stove. Round up some friends, plan a few hikes, and book this place!

Getaway House Shenandoah, Virginia

Getaway House wants you to get bored in the woods and we support it. They have a few other properties on the East Coast and their model is simple: enjoy a space, close to nature, and take a minute to soak it all in. Read a book, pack a game, bring some cards. If you're looking for just what you need, beautifully done, and without much extra, this is it. Their cabins are set up in such a way that there are a number on the property but you still feel secluded, spread across 80 acres. They have the basic amenities and since they're pet friendly, consider bringing your four legged buddy.
