I love looking for and staying at unique Airbnb properties - at the beach, on a farm, in the mountains, and in trees. The vacation rental I'm featuring this time is a treehouse located near Mt. Hood. It sits on a 20-acre property and has been featured on the BuzzFeed YouTube series, "Home Buddies".

The Magical Treehouse was constructed between 3 large trees, has about 200 square feet of living space, and comes with most of the comforts of home. It can accommodate up to 4 guests with 3 beds and a half bath and a composting toilet. The hot water shower is located outside, so you'll feel really close to nature!

It has a covered seating area below so if it rains (and it does in the Pacific Northwest) you'll have a place to sit outside to enjoy the scenery. The property includes hiking trails, outdoor games, a swing, and a spring-fed pond you can jump into or better yet, use the zip line and make a big splash - which might scare the fish, but once the water calms you can catch those too. You'll never be bored, guaranteed.

The last really cool thing about this property is the dogs! The owners have two very friendly labs that roam around and they love to visit and play with visitors. As the owners note, if you're not a dog person, this is probably not the vacation rental for you.

It's been a perfect spot for hundreds of guests - the treehouse gets a 5-star review. You can learn more about the property on Airbnb and see it up close in the Buzz Feed video below.
