Give yourself all the ambiance of a retreat in the woods and all the convenience of the city with a stay at this Treehouse Trio. Nestled in the woods not far from I-75 in Buckhead, this unique getaway is made up of three separate areas connected by rope bridges: a living room with 80 year old butterfly-filled windows, a 12-candle chandelier, comfortable, antique seating for 6, and a balcony overlooking an acre of lush woods, a deck with a hammock and dart board, and a bedroom with a pillow-top double bed that can be wheeled out onto an outdoor platform. Just in case you feel too isolated, the house also has WiFi, but with a bottle of wine and snacks guaranteed on your arrival, we'd recommend keeping electronic distractions to a minimum.

Built for a fly fisherman in the woods of the Olympic Peninsula, the Sol Duc Cabin is far more than your average outdoors getaway. It sits on stilts to keep it safe from the occasional flood from the nearby river, and while it's sleek and modern inside, with dining and kitchen areas on the lower level and a sleeping loft above, the outside is purposely raw, with unfinished steel and insulated panels. And to ensure it stays safe when fishing season's over, there are full-length shutters that cover the house's windows, making it practically indestructible, and ensuring it's just as he left it when it's time to fish again.

Nothing is impossible. At least that's the tease we got from Lexus along with some fantastic looking photos of this Hoverboard. With the familiar Lexus spindle grille signature shape, that utilizes the same materials that the carmaker uses for their vehicles, along with natural bamboo lining the deck, it puts other boards and concepts to shame. Lexus claims that liquid nitrogen superconductors and permanent magnets are the keys to it's frictionless movement. And while it's unlikely to ever be released, the combination of a dream item and Lexus luxury is enough to get anyone excited.
