The Free Spirit Spheres treehouse hotel in Canada is a once-in-a-lifetime experience

Remember when you wanted to sleep in your treehouse as a kid? Well, now you can. This Canadian treehouse hotel is a unique experience that lets guests wake up in the sky — and it's currently taking bookings for 2020.

Free Spirit Spheres — located on Vancouver Island — gives guests the choice of three quirky wooden spheres suspended up to 100 feet in the air. Each sphere can be accessed via a wooden staircase.

The spheres are designed using "biomimicry", an architectural technique that seeks to emulate nature. Master Craftsman Tom Chudleigh formed each treehouse to resemble a nut, using soft lines so the spheres appear as natural as possible.

Even the network of ropes used to tether each sphere look "much like a spider web," blending seamlessly with the trees.

Each sphere contains a cozy bed, circular windows, electric heating, filtered water, and a speaker system that guests can plug into. Luna — the newest and most luxurious sphere — also boasts a lounge-style seating area.

Private washrooms with running water are located nearby the treehouses.

Each sphere accommodates two guests, making it the perfect destination for a couple's weekend getaway.

Alternatively, Free Spirit Spheres suggests using the treehouses as a "creative studio space," so Canadian artists, musicians, and writers, take note — your next hotel booking awaits you.

Bookings start at $314/night.
