Larger groups will love the brand new Choctaw Treehouse, which has one queen-sized bed, one double bed and five twin-sized beds.

This treehouse oasis sits 18 feet off the ground and is built into two Red Oak trees that allow it to safely sway in the wind. Below the cabin, you’ll find chairs, a fire ring, picnic table, swings and hammocks. Both treetop getaways are just minutes from Lake Eufaula, Oklahoma’s largest lake.
