After the craziness of Porter Flea (our largest market of the year), our design and marketing team needed a little break and a bit of a creative reset. We've had our eyes on Chattanooga for some time now, and since it's only a little under two hours from Nashville, we decided to hit the road for some R&R in the mountains.
We reached out to a local company called Treetop Hideaways after seeing their modern treehouses on Instagram and they kindly let us take over their beautiful Elements Treehouse for the weekend. It was the perfect place for us to recharge our creative batteries. We found ourselves pretty well aligned with their mission because just like we recycle wood from Nashville's old homes to create our wall art, the Treetop Hideaways team incorporates reclaimed barn wood, antique windows and an old-fashioned, barn-raising construction style to create a modern look in their two treehouses.
The treehouse that we stayed in was cozy but spacious, with an open floor plan, tiny kitchen and one of the most luxurious showers we've seen just about anywhere (there's a mature tree growing up right through the center of it!). Upstairs, there's a loft space with skylights that allowed us to watch the rain fall during the night.
While we mostly stayed cozied up in the treehouse enjoying the serenity and the beautiful view of Lookout Mountain, we ventured into Chattanooga for dinner and drinks at the Dwell Hotel and breakfast in the morning at The Bitter Alibi, both of which were delicious. We did some window shopping along Frazier Avenue, and we found some seriously good denim at Collective Clothing.
On our last day we peeked over at the other treehouse next to ours and lusted over the floor-to-ceiling windows and the way-up-high deck. We'll definitely be back for another stay with Treetop Hideaways, and if you'd like to book your own stay, you can find them online here.
