Buckhead treehouse is Airbnb’s #1 most wish-listed
If you have friends or relatives planning a visit to Buckhead, and they’re up for an adventure, you may want to suggest they stay in a treehouse. Really.
Buckhead boasts Airbnb’s #1 most wish-listed property in the world–a swanky treehouse set back on a wooded lot near a creek.
Owner Peter Bahouth originally built the triple platform treehouse as a space for him and his wife to get away and enjoy nature. Three separate tree houses connected by bridges make this space large enough for two people to stay, but children and pets are a no-no.
Here’s how Bahouth describes the treehouse on Airbnb:
Centrally located within the heart of intown Atlanta, the treehouses are a hidden gem. The subject of numerous TV and magazine features (including “Treehouse Masters: Ultimate Treehouse IV”), they are often described as being the most relaxing, romantic, dreamy and unique place you’ll ever stay. What could be better than falling asleep in the trees and waking up to birds singing around you–all within the city limits?
The treehouse consists of 3 separate rooms, each connected by rope-bridges. Descriptions of the 3 rooms:
Living Room: Antique furnishings including 80 year old butterfly-filled windows; antique furnishings, and a balcony overlooking an acre of lush woods.
Bedroom: Sleeps 2. The double bed is fitted with cozy, organic linens and is equipped with wheels so it can either be rolled out onto a platform that overlooks the stream below or inside the room. Vintage decor and natural artifacts add as much to the comfort of the setting as they do to its charm.
Deck: Open to the elements and immersed in thick greenery, the deck surrounds the “Old Man,” a 150-year-old Southern Short-Leaf Pine tree. The tree is the largest of the seven trees that support the treehouse suite–he watches over the property and its guests.
The bathroom is located in the basement/lower level of the owners’ private home. Guests will have exclusive access to it during their stay. The treehouses and main house share a lot and are within a 30 second walk to one another.
The neighborhood is a quiet, residential place. While the lot is located in a particularly peaceful, private and lush part of the area, it is important to remember that it is in the middle of intown Atlanta. While you may hear the occasional siren or train whistle during your stay, the most common sound is that of silence broken only by birds, frogs and the wind in the trees.
