We are close enough if you would like to reach us, but far enough that you have complete privacy. If, at any time during your stay, you may need us... we are only a phone call or text away. Our priority is to make your stay as exclusively private and beautifully awesome as possible.

There is always time to relax around the stunning pool or lay quietly swaying in a hammock under beautifully tall pine trees. You'll get the feeling that you are IN A SPACE not just visiting it. Go home feeling refreshed.

You can see our home on the property as you drive up the driveway.

There are no other visible neighbours … only deer, cows and squirrels :)

The treehouse and cabin are nestled in a small forest, overlooking the fields and pond. We also have a vintage restored airstream and it is located on the pond.

The pool, our home and barn are also visible from the treehouse, and yet both areas remain private.

Want to walk the 100 acres? Let us know and we will share the marked trails and route for you to enjoy! It's beautiful !

We are honoured to say that we are Air BnB super hosts! Woot! That's great news for you as it is something that is only earned via AirBnB high standards of excellence. You can expect the best experience when you come to the treehouse and beautiful cabin! I'm a designer and have a lifestyle blog : Design the Life You Want To Live®. There, you'll see a ton of treehouse stories, design inspo, great DIYs and photos of the treehouse + cabin retreat. The blog is a real hootenanny. Go read it! As hosts, we like a laid back style combined with a chic high quality comfort for you. The treehouse, cabin and pool areas are beautifully kept, clean, light and airy. You'll have high quality, crisp white linens & fluffy feather duvets on all beds. Your comfort and privacy of space are very important to us. Although we live on the same 100 acre property, the house is separate from the treehouse and cabin. You'll have your own space in the treehouse & cabin area, private/shared access to the pool and outdoor amenities. It is like having your own five star resort at your fingertips. Please don't hesitate to ask any questions ... we are here to help! Because the treehouse books up so quickly for the summer, the sooner you inquire the better. Overall, we have a 95 % occupancy rate throughout the summer months. Gift certificates are available upon request. Go out on a limb in a treehouse :) ps.
