It was great to be greeted by the animals in the early morning. While it was too cold to enjoy the front porch sitting area, it looked like the perfect way to start a morning with a cup of tea or coffee. The outhouse that accompanied the camper was beautiful. Nice and toasty and extremely clean outhouse. Highly recommend this to anyone just trying to escape and looking to relax.”

Recent Guest Review of this Property:

“What a hidden gem this was! Although there were no reviews, the pictures and James’ responsiveness were just too much to say no to, and are we glad we did! The moment you pull onto the gravel road that leads to the treehouse, you know you chose right. Signage, swings, lights, even a chicken coop are just some of the things you’ll notice right away.”

“The property is in the middle of the forest and there’s a small pond. The treehouse itself is a masterpiece on the outside and incredibly cozy inside. Every detail was paid attention to and the whole place is made out of wood for an extra cozy feel. A window nook let’s you read as you enjoy the view, and there’s a bird feeder right outside as well. There are plenty of food delivery options as well as Amazon, so you’re still connected while being secluded. Internet isn’t the fastest, but enough for basics. We highly recommend this place if you’re looking for a super cozy getaway!”
