(The word “snug” may even be generous here, as the larger of the two-room offerings measures just 6 by 4 feet.)

They may look like oversized seeds or giant eggs, but the spheres (named Eve, Eryn and Melody) are furnished with closets, double beds and sofas, and come equipped with sinks, microwaves and refrigerators. Guests climb into their spheres via spiral staircases leading to short suspension bridges, a path they must then retrace to reach the composting toilet outhouse located at the base of the spheres.
Dog Bark Park Inn, Cottonwood, Idaho

Skylodge Adventure Suites, Sacred Valley, Peru
According to the Natura Vive alpine resort, the next best thing to sleeping in a condor’s nest is sleeping in one of its three transparent capsules that hang from a mountainside. Made out of aerospace-grade aluminum and weather-resistant polycarbonate, each suite comes with four beds, a dining area and, somehow, a private bathroom. Getting there, meanwhile, requires guests to scale a via ferrata course or brave a series of zip lines.
