Who needs a hotel when you could be "glamping" — a mashup of glam camping — in an up-north lakeside treehouse?

Why we love it: This one-bedroom treehouse on the banks of Dixon Lake in the Chippewa National Forest has water, electricity, a half-bath, wifi and peace and quiet. Enjoy the screened-in view from inside or use the provided kayaks and paddle boat to get out on the water.

First things first: You'll have to climb the spiral staircase up to your private deck and take a rope bridge to the entrance door.

  • Of note: No kitchen, heat, AC or shower, hence the camping part.

Details: The cabin sleeps two and is available through Airbnb or owner Kathryn Wallentine's website.

  • But, but, but: Act fast — Only a few dates are left this summer.
