{Poll} Which wacky hotel would you check into?

According to one of our favorite travel experts, FOF Marybeth Bond, The Gutsy Traveler, “The average adventure traveler is not a 28-year old male, but a 47-year old female. And she wears a size 12 dress.”

    They all sound very exotic. Unique is another way to express those destinations! The tree house seems like quite an adventure. That is what I would go for!

  4. Irishstar says:

    TThe over water as well as under water would definitely be my choice….over this choice would come after the winning lottery number!

    Whenever I travel to Pennsylvania (twice a year), I stay at The Caboose Motel — in an actual caboose that’s been made into a modern hotel room. Check out my FOF profile for more details, or go to http://www.octrr.org. The Caboose Motel is open May-Oct and closed for the winter months. It’s my whacky place to stay 🙂

    Robinson Crusoe adventure! Vacationing in a treehouse. Not on an island but in the forest. Count me in! I would love to experience that adventure!! Life is just too short to experience all these wonderful places and opportunities. Thanks FOF for bringing these places to my attention.

  7. Claudia Mcgee says:

    oh the Poseidon Undersea Resort in Istanbul, Turkey
    would be a Dream — but WOW ! the price 🙁

  8. margaret says:

    I would love the underwater hotel. It sounds absolutely enchanting to relax and watch the fish swim by.

  9. sandy says:

    Would not like to do the cold, and even though would love looking at the sea life underwater, think the trees would do it for me, really commuting with nature.

  10. Cynthia says:

    I don’t like cold and have a touch of claustrophobia, but absolutely love the great outdoors! It would be the treehouse for me.

  11. sue hieber says:

    i want to visit the tree house, but oh golly, theyh better have an elevator to the top, or some really strong rope to hoist me up with.

  12. Susan says:

    The sound of the ocean is beautiful…I live in a beach community, but I don’t think I could sleep under it. Spa treatment and Gourmet meals….wow..I could dream that. It sounds luxurious. However, back to the basic treehouse would be enchanting, listening to the animals, going on a safari, bonfire…it sounds to me almost spiritual on getting back to what life is about. The treehouse would definately be my dream hotel

  13. Rose says:

    I don’t like bugs so treehouse is out, I don’t like cold so ice house is out but I have gone scuba diving so I can handle the underwater part. SO THE UNDER WATER VILLA SOUNDS GOOD.

  14. Elizabeth says:

    The Ice Hotel in Sweden is certainly my first choice! It would make me feel like Lara in Dr. Zhivago…two different countries…but still huge amounts of ice and snow. All snug in a thermal sleeping bag with someone I love…how romantic!!!! I’m ready when you are!

  15. Belinda Drew says:

    I love cold weather…it’s invigorating and Sweden…a place I have always dreamed of going to.

  16. Pamela says:

    It was hard for me to choose between the undersea or treehouse vacation because I love both the jungle and the ocean. But 2 nights underwater caused me to rethink the ocean stay and helped me to decide upon the treehouse.

  17. Janet Keyser says:

    I would love the underwater hotel in Turkey. What an adventure!

    • Dale says:

  18. Sophia Sutton says:

    Wow! All these hotels sounds really fantastic, but I think the Treehouse sounds the most magical to me. I love nature and so experiencing it in this manner would be absolutely wonderful (as long as there is mosquito netting). : ) When I was little my family went to Disneyland and I remember falling in love with the Swiss Family Robinson’s Treehouse. That is the life for me! Thank you for the opportunity to win such a great vacation.

  19. Carol Segal says:

    I would love to watch what goes on underneath th water. It is probably as relaxing as it is educational and would certainly be an unusual vacation.

  20. Cheryl says:

    I think the Treehouse Hotel would be the most exciting. It would be a real chance to be part of nature without sleepng in a tent.

  21. Cynthia Madsen says:

    Under the Sea-hot, hot, hot! What a different way to experience the ocean-my favorite place!

  22. Patricia says:

    I don’t think that I could sleep under the water (might spring a leak during the night, you know).
    Trees and open spaces are for me!

  23. Jan says:

    The adventurer in me wishes I could do all three! If money was no object, the undersea paradise sounds like someplace I could spend a very long time and the tree house reminds me of the Swiss family Robinson.

  24. Brenda says:

    Water for me, please! There’s something about being near water that I find calming, soothing, and familiar. Perhaps it takes me back to my time in the womb!

  25. Sylvia H. Craun says:

    Under Sea resort. Love the sound of the ocean. The blue green water. Would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE. A break away from the fast daily life I live. NEED, NEED, NEED. The beauty, and magic of this place would be like HEAVEN, HEAVEN, HEAVEN. Need to WIN, WIN, WIN.

  26. Ginny says:

    I’d be a buit concerned with the underwater hotel springing a leak or the tree house being hit by a strong wind (it’s the “mommy” in me!) but the ice hotel is perfect for us midwesterners! Also I got a glimpse of one in a James Bond movie.

  27. eloria says:

    Trees for Me, Please.
    I would definately choose the treehouse. I like the idea of being up in the canopy of trees in the jungle. I am not fond of the cold and I would not be able to sleep underwater so this was an easy choice for me. I think India sounds so exotic and magical. It brings to mind The Jungle Book with Mogli and Blue.

  28. Holding my breath says:

    I never feel calmer than when I am in, near, or can see water. The adventure of spending so much time UNDER it sounds like Paradise!

  29. Janis says:

    I have actually checked into staying in a Treehouse Hotel in Africa for me and my girlfriend/travel buddy from Minnesota, however, my first choice may be the underwater hotel. I love, love, LOVE water!
