Who doesn’t love to cozy up in a cute tree house? Imagine opening the door to your balcony with a cup of coffee and looking straight out into the trees. Sounds amazing to you too? Well, you don’t have to go too far from Greenville in order to get your tree house fix. In this post you can find 4 of the best South Carolina tree houses near Greenville.


South Carolina Tree Houses Near Greenville

Tree houses in South Carolina are split between mostly the mountains (aka close to Greenville) and the coast. This post features some of the best treehouses in the Upstate near Greenville. I’ve focused this post just on South Carolina tree houses.

In the future I’ll be putting together a post of the best tree houses near Asheville. There are more options in North Carolina, so stay tuned!

Now most tree houses are not dog friendly and are not kid friendly. So keep that in mind when you’re looking.

Since there are only a few South Carolina tree houses, I’ve included some cabin alternatives for each listing. To find the treehouses & cabins, I search VRBO and airbnb.

Lost Treehouse of Lake Jocassee

The Lost Treehouse is perfect for 2 people looking to explore Lake Jocassee. The inside is small (there isn’t a proper kitchen) and the bathhouse is located about a 50ft walk away. But if that doesn’t deter you, then this will be a perfect retreat. Jocassee has amazing waterfalls and you can easily rent paddle boards and kayaks to explore it.

  • Location: Salem, SC
  • Sleeps: 2
  • Pet Friendly: Yes
  • Hot Tub: No
  • Price: $189/night

If you need more room, check out Zen Lake Front Cabin Retreat on Lake Keowee. It sleeps 10 and comes with a game room and kayaks / paddle boards to use.

Majestic Treehouse

The Majestic Treehouse is a romantic and luxurious escape. Located on a large 40 acre farm, the tree house is very private and secluded. The king-sized bed faces large windows so you can wake up and look right out into the trees. Enjoy the fire pit and the various outdoor seating areas separated by bridges and ladders. And there’s an outdoor shower with a tree growing right in the middle of it.

  • Location: Walhalla, SC
  • Sleeps: 2
  • Pet Friendly: No
  • Hot Tub: No
  • Price: $515/night

The cabin options near Walhalla are mostly clustered to the east of town around Lake Keowee. Below are some options I found:

  • Spacious Seneca Retreat – 4 bedrooms (sleeps 8). Screened in porch. Vaulted ceilings. Multi-level deck space. (No private dock.)
    Price: $318/night
  • Serene Lakefront Retreat – 3 bedrooms (sleeps 8). Floor-to-ceiling windows. Kayaks. Game room. Multiple decks. Private deep water dock.
    Price: $563/night

Bella Luna

The Bella Luna Treehouse is a perfect romantic getaway for a couple. With many trails and waterfalls nearby, you can easily explore this little corner of South Carolina. But you may not want to leave the treehouse. The king-sized bed and multiple porches are just the beginning. The indoor bathroom has a shower with a stone tile and river rock floor complete with fairy lights. Plus there’s an additional outdoor summer shower. But the best part may just be the napping deck complete with a raised double-stack net built for 2 people.

  • Location: Mountain Rest, SC
  • Sleeps: 2
  • Pet Friendly: No
  • Hot Tub: No
  • Price: $249/night

There are several cabin options nearby in the Mountain Rest area. The ones listed here are also good alternatives for the Stella Vista tree house listed below.

  • Stumphouse Cabin – a smaller cabin that’s perfect for 2 couples interested in the Stumphouse Mountain Bike Park. The cabin has a very unique feel plus it’s dog friendly!
    Price: $196/night
  • Lakefront Mountain Rest Cottage – a more budget friendly option than some of the other lakefront cabins on this list. Nestled on Crystal Lake this cabin sleeps just 2 people (or 4 including a sofa bed). But it’s dog friendly with a small fee!
    Price: $122/night
  • Quaint two bedroom cabin – located right on small Mountain Rest lake, this is also a great option for a small family. It’s on the smaller side, but the lake is quiet so it’s perfect for swimming, kayaking, or SUPing.
    Price: $140/night
