There’s always a touch of romance to sleeping under the stars – even when sleeping alone. The openness of the sky and the nocturnal sounds of nature are just sheer freedom. And naturally, enterprising people have taken our love of the outdoors to the extreme in providing accommodations totally beyond the norm of regular hotels, hostels and camping. Can you imagine sleeping in any of these places?
1. Sleep in the Human Nest in Big Sur, California
This structure looks like it emerged from a medieval tale instead of an artist’s hand. The whimsical nest, created by artist Jayson Fann, is placed on a platform and is accessible by ladder. It’s only big enough for two guests and looks out over the Pacific Ocean, so it would be great for a romantic getaway under the stars. It’s part of the Treebones Resort and is described by them as “extreme eco-sleep.”
