A treehouse in Fletcher that promises guests they'll be "gently rocked to sleep" as their dwelling sways in the breeze is the second-most popular on Airbnb's Instagram account, the lodging business announced.


Airbnb on Monday unveiled the 10 most-liked homes from its Instagram in 2021. The Raven Rock Treehouse in Fletcher is the second most liked home on the social media site. "Perched on the apex of the Eastern Continental Divide near a 40-acre wilderness wildlife preserve," the treehouse offers "radical off grid therapy."

"If you’ve ever wanted to curl up in front of a fire in the branches of a tree, or to be gently rocked to sleep as your house sways (just a little) in the wind, or to look down on a mountain sunrise, you’ve found your spot," the owners say. "While it’s tough to top the views from the deck of Superhosts Doug and Jen’s treehouse, there’s plenty of competition nearby, including Pisgah National Forest."

The treehouse has gotten 126 reviews and scored an average of 4.98 stars out of 5.
