Fresh clean mountain air. Spend an unforgettable stay in our rustic luxurious 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 an electric fireplace 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 $15/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 woodef 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 solar camp shower (upon request).   There is a private outdoor chemical camp toilet sitting in your 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!)

This was my second time staying here, and of course I’ll be back! Such an easy drive from Littleton (less than an hour), and the nature and quite is just perfect. Deborah is a fantastic host. Brought the kids, and they had an absolute blast playing in the dirt and in the hammock, just as kids should. My daughter’s review: “This was the best day of my life.” It’s elevated camping at its best.

I had a perfect night at the tree house. Deborah was so friendly and gave me a good orientation when I arrived. I typically camp more than “glamp”, so all of the amenities were a very welcome upgrade to what I’m used to. I brought my own jetboil to cook with but ended up using the propane stove in the well-stocked outdoor kitchen area. The bed was so cozy, and I slept great. Easy access to a nearby trailhead was the icing on the cake, and I went on a nice 4 mile hike straight from the site. I’ll be back very soon!

Staying here at the tree cabin was such a nice weekend getaway! Deborah was so warm and welcoming and you can tell she’s put a lot of time and effort into making your stay comfortable. There’s plenty of hikes nearby and a cute little downtown area not far away that is fun to walk around and check out. I would definitely recommend staying here if you’re looking to unplug and have a relaxing little vacation!

Deborah was an amazing host. She was a great person and helped us feel super comfortable at our camp. It backs up to a road that takes you right to a walking trail. Great bed, and awesome hammock and chairs. We will be back!

We loved our two nights in the micro- cabin - pretty neat concept. I had my first experiences with a solar shower and a chemical toilet- both comforts you don’t get at a campsite - oh, and she made up a comfy bed for us too! Fresh drinking water, clean dishes and stove, fire ring with comfy chairs, and a beautiful hike out your back door- I’ll be back!

Great minimalistic spot that feels expansive in the woods. Deborah's handcrafted tree cabin is cozy with the added touch of an outdoor area and firepit. Would recommend for a solo or couple's retreat. Deborah is a fantastic host and person as well who went above and beyond to make us comfortable:)

The setting was beautiful and the host, Deborah, was extremely accommodating. We were able to hike into the National forest right from the site. Stargazing through the break in the trees from the campsite was phenomenal. The steep up and down slope to access the site could benefit from some log or stone footings. We anticipated a rustic camp setting based on the description of accommodations, however, the amenities were not as described and the site has suffered from weathering and has deviated from the described listing. The piecemeal layers of tarp covering the pergola were torn and did not keep out the rain. The furniture was either broken or worn beyond its useful life. The cabin’s screened windows/shutters didn’t function as originally designed. The outhouse was not a chemical toilet and resulted in a significant amount of plastic garbage bag waste and we were expecting a more environmentally friendly alternative. With a little investment of time and money, we would highly recommend this setting as it has all the ingredients for a wonderfully peaceful getaway.

We enjoyed our time at Deborah’s place! We really loved the outdoor kitchen area, the shade from the trees, and access to the national forest for hiking. Deborah’s a super host with great information and a true love for the area. We read a lot of other reviews so I felt prepared for what to expect. You do need to be able to go down a short hill and then back up again to get from the car to the cabin, so it’s not for people who have a harder time walking.
