The Bird's Eye View: Eagle's Nest Treehouse
Just north of Bodega Bay, Eagle's Nest Treehouse at Salmon Creek Ranch is perched four stories above the forest floor between two towering Douglas firs. Its large redwood deck can be accessed via a spiral staircase and a 30-foot long suspension bridge. Once inside, you'll see why the place has been published in House & Garden. Clad in richly oiled old growth redwood and built to feel like home with French doors, insulated walls and a copper-lined shower, Eagle's Nest has basically everything you'll need—queen bed, heat, hot water, a flush toilet, and low-wattage electrical outlets. (BYO bedding.) A stay at the ranch also means access to the massive working ranch, organic pastures, private forest, and the scenic Salmon Creek and beach. // $320/night for two adults (no kids, no pets); details at Hipcamp.com.

The Arboreal Mansion: Luxury Treehouse
Grab the family—the whole family—and head for this 3,200-square-foot two-story sky house with six bedrooms, five-and-a-half baths, a fully equipped kitchen, living space with a baby grand piano, a dining room, and even a laundry room. It sounds fancy (and is), but it does have nature in spades: Sweeping decks overlook the windswept wonderland that is Point Reyes National Seashore. Last one in the hot tub's a rotten egg! // From $683/night; details at glampinghub.com.
