This enchanting treehouse sits suspended between two cypress trees overlooking an emerald river. As the name “Chapelle” would suggest, this vacation spot is inspired by a church or chapel, with twin cathedral-style windows and oodles of (electric) candles as decor.
The inside feels ethereal and romantic, with burgundy accents and ornate finishes. The main room has high ceilings, seating overlooking the river, and a lovely table. There’s a large bathroom complete with both a walk-in shower and a clawfoot tub, as well as a bedroom fit for a royal couple.
If the weather cooperates, visitors can enjoy coffee on one of the twin decks. You can learn more about the builder here, or book a stay in the treehouse here.

Its beautiful and well done! I was just wondering if all the bracing that holds the treehouse up is detrimental to the tree and does it need adjusting as the tree grows.
The bracing is specifically engineered to work with trees and not harm them over time. They’re a family run business that have been doing this for a few decades now and the owner is very passionate about trees, and developed building technology and methods to ensure both the tree and the tree house will last as long as possible.
Even had a TV show, for awhile, on Animal Planet channel called Tree House Masters… Where they showed the building of many of their builds and even toured other builds by other builders around the world a few times. Sharing design inspirations and building techniques…
While yes, they typically leave a gap for the tree to have room to grow but depending on how much bigger the tree gets it may eventually need to be adjusted but that can be up to decades later and is just part of the normal long term maintenance…
Thank you James. Something I was curious about.
WoW! I love it! You can really see the amount of work in all the little details.
Beautiful, beautiful home. It always makes me cringe though to see a tree having to carry the weight of a house and all that goes inside it, especially with bolts driven into them, a living growing thing. 🙁
