Hotel rooms or vacation rentals on Navarre Beach are obviously a great way to spend your time in our destination. But you might also want to consider staying a night or two in the untamed area a few miles north of downtown Milton. There you’ll find two unique tree houses where you can live in complete comfort while being just steps away from nature. Real nature — nothing processed about it.
Move on Up
The Modern Treehouse at Coldwater Gardens is a secluded piece of modern architecture set among a dense magnolia canopy. It’s made of rich woods, inside and out. This place is suite — a covered alcove, perfect for lounging, separates the two small rooms, which are equipped with heat and AC. Accommodations include two queen beds, full bath, equipped kitchen, and a fire pit on the ground level. Plus, you’ll have easy access to the agricultural marvel that is Coldwater Gardens, where you can take relaxing strolls or in-depth guided tours.
A Tree Runs Through It
Just six miles away is Adventures Unlimited, where the Lorax Loft offers a cozy tree house stay. You’ll notice that a big tree branch runs right through the room. (Please, no climbing.) Sleep well in a king-size bed; relax in a champagne soaker tub, fire up the fireplace; and make good use of the equipped mini-kitchen. (Bring your own food; there’s not much in the way of restaurants.) Outside on the deck, with its remarkable views, there’s a fire ring, picnic table and set of beach chairs. Lorax Loft is just a short hop from Stumpy Alley Beach on Coldwater Creek, as well as the myriad of activities — i.e. ziplining — Adventures Unlimited is famous for.
