The Looking Glass: Mirrored Treehouses in Kentucky


This pair of mirrored treehouses in Kentucky reminds me of the Swiss Family Robinson compound! They are a fantastic blend of yurt-like round architecture, but hung in the trees to make them even more awesome.

Mirrors in a chevron pattern on the exterior of the pods reflects the beauty of the trees back at you. One pod is a living area, and the other one houses the two beds and a couple of hammocks. At ground level there is a third pod which has the bathroom.

What a super cool spot! Enjoy the photo tour below.

    How utterly fun! Lots of work and great results. Would like to have seen the outhouse interior, but I can probably find a pic or 2 on their AB&B listing. The stairs look intimidating, but that can be solved with no water before bed🙄. I wouldn’t be at all surprised to walk in to find Ewoks sitting around the table. Great builds!

    Pretty cool!
    I can’t tell exactly, but these look like true treehouses, and not just houses built within trees. the difference between the two is whether the tree(s) fully support the houses, or if they are supported externally from the ground

    This is fabulous! Lots of work paid off with a real destination spot! Maybe a little difficult for Seniors to navigate but perfect for those who aren’t bothered with ladders. Everything is well done but I do wish people would install kitchen cabinets that hide the plumbing as well as providing other storage. Kitchen stuff tends to look a bit messy. Just a personal preference. Others won’t mind at all. A magical place to escape the conventions of everyday life! Adventure to be had!
