Treehouses, Off the Grid!

Owned by my Dad who said I could build a tree house on it in 2014. It really was a dream come true. My Dad's original intent was to make it into a huge farm. Now, he is content with building a few treehouses!  I have wanted a tree house since I was 10 years old. My siblings and I would spend hours make believing our own tree houses of twigs, rock and moss. It was where we felt at peace.  When I turned 35 I knew something was missing in my life. I returned to doing fun adventures again and one led to another and we found tree climbing. EarthJOY tree adventures was founded in 2007 and since then we have guided 1000's of climbers into the trees and watch as they do tree tricks like yoga poses and coming down like spiderman. This land is magical and a world of adventure awaits you!

Staying in the treehouse was perfect for my little family. My husband and I were unsure about taking our 9 month old camping so this was the perfect in between. We loved getting outdoors in the cool fall weather and having a cozy spot to come back to. The loft fit her pack n play perfectly.

Escape in this fun treehouse.
Great treehouse to be within the woods and enjoying the land. Shelly’s earth joy land was a lovey escape from the bustle of modern life. The treehouse had everything one could need. And was a perfect stay for our family of 4.

Hickory TreeHouse PlayLand & Slide!
Our family much enjoyed our get away to Hickory treehouse and the Earthjoy Village grounds. Shelly was very communicative, we found the place with no problems. Grounds were marked. Had a great time meandering through the many trails (& creeks), will have to come back as we didn't get to them all, plus would love to visit the other treehouses. Trails were a great place for foraging, enjoyed munching on the wild onions this time of year. Looked like quite a few brambles too. Highly recommend the climbing course as this was the highlight of my trip (do try repelling Spiderman style!). Even our boys ages 5 and 7 had a good time with it. Kids also loved the slide, swing and hammocks attached to Hickory treehouse. We mostly used the composting toilet (no smell/ was clean), but your personal restroom not far for a shower. Chatting with Shelly and the climbing staff was a joy. These are people that care deeply for the earth and taking care of it and wanting to share their very special place with others. So glad they have. If you're up for an adventure, the camping type and not afraid of finding stink bugs dwelling with you, this is the place for you.

Excellent Adventure
This experience was amazing. We really enjoyed hiking in the snow and coming back to a warm, insulated treehouse. My trip consisted of two adults and two childen and the Pete Nelson accomodations fit us perfectly.

Hickory TreeHouse PlayLand & Slide!
It was an overall wonderful experience staying at this property. The owner called and spoke with me a couple of days before our trip to tell us a bit more about our stay and was willing to answer any questions I might have had. I love the personal touch! The treehouse was quaint (but perfect for our family of four) and had everything we needed for our stay. We really enjoyed the treehouse's amenities, especially the kid's slide and swing! The property was beautiful and so nice to hike & enjoy nature!

We had a great time in Old Hickory! The trails and big slide on the property were fun, and my kids loved playing on the slide and swing on the treehouse.

Our stay at Old Hickory was outstanding! The pictures on the website were true to life, it was like a stay in a magazine photo shoot! I would easily take my family back and recommend any of my friends spend time here!

Enchanted Magical Aliyah TREEHOUSE
Spectacular treehouse in a magical setting. The hiking trails with hidden treasures along the way were fun for the whole family! The climbing experience with Bill was incredible. Close to Augusta snd Maysville, two of the cutest river towns. The Beehive Tavern was a perfect dininf experience overlooking the Ohio River in Augusta. A perfect escape!!

Absolute relaxation in the trees. We put the grill to good use each night! Only possibilities for improvements would be running water (cold only, even) and a small dorm/hotel type refrigerator, but since we camp often, these would make it glamping!

Enchanted Magical Aliyah TREEHOUSE
An amazing family experience!!
Our treehouse experience was incredible. Our treehouse was a kid’s fantasy with a loft and wooden bridge. The trails were a blast to follow and enjoy nature and make up fun stories about the hobbits inhabiting the houses we found. The hammocks were very relaxing. And we had a great time sitting around the fire in the evening. An absolute amazing family experience - we plan to return!!

I booked this last minute the night before while looking for a nice place to be the last stop of my road trip. Though my stay was short, after a long day of driving it was nice to be able to go and hike some of the trails and stretch the legs. The tree house itself was great. It was very nice and clean inside. Shelly was great and got in touch with all the information I needed right away. Wish I could have stayed longer.

Our family had a fantastic time during our treehouse adventure. We only stayed one night, but we would have loved to have stayed longer. We were amazed at the beautiful trails and all the fun spots to stop along the way. This place is just incredible!
