This Stunning Treehouse Perched On A Sandstone Cliff Will Take Your Breath Away

Nestled amidst the breathtaking landscapes of Red River Gorge, KY, the Cliff Dweller is more than just a rental – it’s an breathtaking journey into the heart of nature’s beauty and a true testament to architectural ingenuity.

Created by The Canopy Crew, this cliff-mounted cabin redefines the concept of an intimate escape, seamlessly blending the raw elegance of sandstone with the comforts of modern living. The best part? It’s only a 3.5 hour drive from downtown Columbus.

Cliff Dweller stands as a testament to innovative design, artful engineering, and a passion for creating an unparalleled experience. The goal was simple yet audacious: to provide a space where guests could immerse themselves in the stunning sandstone formations that define the Red River Gorge.

The result is a unique dwelling that harmoniously combines the elements of tree and stone, comfort and exposure, offering a stay unlike any other.

Upon arriving at the parking area, be prepared for an awe-inspiring introduction to your getaway. The massive floating staircase that winds its way up the mountain is a sight to behold – and an adventure in itself. With 177 steps leading to the kitchen, 45 steps to the bedroom, and 11 steps to the roof deck, every ascent is a step toward a breathtaking view and a memorable experience.

It’s recommended that guests pack backpacks instead of suitcases and bags instead of a cooler (as there’s a fridge inside) to ensure ease of movement during your ascent. But don’t worry, the climb will totally be worth it when you see the views.

At the summit of the floating staircase, the Cliff Dweller unfolds its charms. The first structure, nestled at the cliff’s base, hosts a cozy kitchen, bathroom, and lofted queen bed.

The live-edge woodwork, salvaged and milled in-house, adds rustic elegance to the space. Ascend the spiral staircase to discover the master bedroom, a haven of romance and relaxation. As you sit on the bed, gazing through a colossal triple-pane window, you’ll marvel at the panoramic vistas that surround you.

And don’t forget the rooftop deck, where you can almost touch the very stone that supports the bedroom – a truly surreal experience.

Designed to accommodate up to four guests, it’s the perfect setting for a romantic getaway, an adventurous escapade with friends, or a unique family retreat.

Beyond the cabin’s confines, the Red River Gorge beckons with its own wonders. Engage in outdoor activities like hiking, rock climbing, and exploring the natural beauty that surrounds you. Reconnect with nature while knowing you have the Cliff Dweller, your luxurious and unforgettable retreat, waiting to welcome you back.

Red River Gorge really is one of the most underrated natural areas. The geological formations are stunning and when you’re nestled up on the cliffside, you’ll feel like you’re truly a part of it all.
