If you’ve ever wanted a tent to channel your inner Peter Pan, then Tentsile’s Vista Tree Tent is right up your alley. Utilizing a unique three-point suspension system, the Vista lofts you over terra firma to watch all the little people below.

Tentsile’s “portable tree house” is a three-person tent held above the ground with industry-grade ratchets and straps. You enter through the center of a 110-square-foot floor made of a nylon-polyester composite reinforced with seatbelt. And while you’d only want you and two friends inside, you can purchase additional floors to create an airborne apartment complex.

Once you get over the fact that you’re in the air, the Vista acts like any other tent. Tear-resistant insect mesh keeps out the bugs, and a removable fly keeps out the rain. Because of its construction, the Tree Tent isn’t fully sealed, and therefore shouldn’t be used during nasty weather. But in clear weather, Tentsile’s Vista has a view that will make you never want to grow up.
