Fresh clean mountain air. No people. Spend an unforgettable stay in our rustic luxurious private tree cabin.  Feel yourselves relax and rejuvenate as you drive up our winding driveway surrounded by private woods and national forest.  This off grid microcabin treehouse is a whimsical mix of art and architecture. Anchored to two trees and two posts, the treehouse sits about 3 feet off the ground. Enjoy the forest and mountain views through 4 windows each with custom shutters. Inside your luxury microcabin is a comfy cozy coccoon with a pillow top memory foam queen bed, mountain fresh linens and mounds of pillows to sink into and drift off to an amazing deep sleep. This is a completely off grid glamping site.  There is a propane heater in the tree cabin to keep it even cozier in cool or cold weather; however the camp toilet is in a covered enclosure outside. ***If you have any difficulty booking, please message me and I will respond immediately. We have had several guests report trouble booking and we were able to get it resolved right away.***( It is an amazing unforgettable winter glamping experience for those who are looking for and prepared for that experience.)

Just outside the custom canvas and wood door of your treehouse, you can sink into your plush armchairs with a glass of wine and enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of the evening forest; relax in the screened pergola in your loveseat and chair; or prepare a gourmet meal (or delicious burgers) on your camp chef camp stove with two burners and a fully functional oven (for roasting veggies, baking breads, muffins or even cakes!).

Enjoy a small controlled campfire in your fire pit surrounded by local rock.  (If there is a fire ban in effect, fires are not allowed.  We'll keep you posted on status which is determined by the sheriff.) You are welcome to gather firewood on our property.  We also have firewood for sale.  (We do not allow firewood from outside of our property as we have begun to see invasive insect species in the surrounding woods.)

We love pets and find that most of our guests do as well.  Your pets are welcome to join you on your stay.  They must be on leash and under voice control.  (We charge a $10/night/pet fee.)   

This is the perfect spot to get away from the city and enjoy everything the mountains have to offer. Listen to the owls in the trees of your private woods. Enjoy the mountain stars without any light interference. Listen to the wind whispering through the thick pine forest. Hike directly into the Pike National Forest trail system which is yards from your cabin door.  You can hike in the 1000s of acres of national forest for 5 minutes or 5 days.  Observe the local wildlife including fox, bobcat, lynx, deer, elk, moose, black bear, mountain lion, and, if you're lucky, Sasquatch. 

Forget about the real world in this off grid paradise.  Your private location is lighted by different types of battery powered lights (and the moon).  We provide 5 gallons of potable water each day as well as a really cool battery operated camp shower (upon request).   There is a private outdoor chemical camp toilet sitting in your private site.

Pots, pans, stoneware, utensils, wine glasses, coffee mugs, coffee pot, knives, linens, towels, toilet paper, napkins and hand sanitizer are provided. 

If you want a little civilization mixed in, be sure to visit the quaint town of Bailey just 5 minutes away.  Learn about Sasquatch at the Sasquatch Outpost; enjoy a beer or wine at the local brewery or winery (killer Bailey Barbarian red);  learn about local history at historic McGraw Park; or visit one of our local restaurants (we'll provide recommendations, if you like!)

Very disappointing & a bit creepy

If your idea of "secluded" and "glamorous" is Deborah's dilapidated front yard, then this is the place for you! We were told that the neighbors would be checking in on us and that we could not have a fire. We found this very disappointing and a bit creepy so we chose not to stay in Deborah's front yard. Before we left, Deborah acted quite pleasantly and promised a full refund minus $25. After we left Deborah texted me at 6:21 p.m. saying we must cancel by 6 p.m. to receive the refund and that she would be "willing to give" us $25. After this we have heard nothing back from Deborah and have not received any sort of refund for our very unpleasant experience. I doubt we will be be using or recommending hipcamp in the future, all thanks to Deborah.

Response from Deborah, the Host, on July 10th, 2020

Pavel insisted on having a fire even though there was a legally mandated burn ban. I told him that the undersheriff is our neighbor and that the police check the mountains to see if burn ban are violated. There is up to a $1000 fine for violating the ban. He still wanted to have a fire which was illegal. I was willing to accommodate a limited refund and asked Pavel in writing to cancel his booking in order for me to attempt to rebook the cabin that night. I was not required to offer any refund. He made no attempt to cancel his booking until the next day. I corresponded with him and let him know what I would be willing to do which I did. I was more than generous and accommodating to this guest who wanted to violate the law and risk burning down the forest with an illegal fire.

Deborah is an amazing host and this property is exactly what you hope it will be. We were able to cook dinner in the camp oven, have a fire and read our books in a very relaxing setting. The property backs to a national forest so there is plenty of hiking you can get to without having to drive. We will definitely be back.

This treehouse is an amazing getaway. The host, Deborah, met us upon arrival and was super helpful! She created this unique place with so many thoughtful details. It’s a short drive off the main road but feels very private! We had the best time and will happily tell all of our friends about this cute spot! Thanks Deborah!

The cutest welcome sign (:So relaxing !Our dogs enjoyed their stay too !

The best weekend. Deborah and AJ met us at our site to give us the orientation and were so incredibly helpful and kind the entire stay. The cabin is a perfect spot for one or two people just looking to get away for the weekend to unplug. National forest hiking was just behind us and the views seized to amaze us both. I would 100% recommend staying here to anyone I know!

We had a lovely stay at this property! Deborah was a great host and provided us with everything we needed. The cabin was cozy and we loved using the fire pit and camp stove. Just a quick walk to beautiful views.

Deborah & her daughter we’re wonderdul hosts! Very friendly & easy to reach. There’s a really cool pizza place called Riverbend something or other just down the road from their house that gave us a nice break from camping cooking😆👌🏼 Also the bed is like sleeping on clouds, but if clouds had super soft blankets!!!

The cabin was wonderful! Everything was as expected with an extraordinarily comfortable bed with warm covers, plenty of kitchen utensils to cook a delicious meal, and lots of space to relax and unwind in the outdoors. Deborah was a fantastic host and provided us with everything we needed for a great stay! The only downside of our trip was a burn ban that was in place that prevented us from having a campfire, but that was beyond Deborah's control.
