Hotel of the week
Cypress Valley Treehouses
“If any place brings treehouse hotels to new heights, it’s this one,” said Madeline Bilis in TravelAndLeisure.com. Cypress Valley Canopy Tours began as a zip-line adventure park before building treetop cottages in its grove of old-growth cypress trees outside Austin. “Luxurious, and downright dreamy,” the five bungalows are perched 30 feet above a ravine and lit after dark by the glow of fireflies. The Nest is the largest, with two bedrooms, a game room, a kitchenette, and a private bathhouse. Couples might prefer Lofthaven, with its wraparound porch and waterfall-fed bathtub.
