We had a wonderful and refreshing stay at the treehouse. It was very clean and comfortable…and—-Kari was such a great host😊—-went out of her way to mail the dog harnesses we left behind. So thankful to support good people.

Molly, we're so happy you enjoyed your time at the treehouse and cabin! You and your family were lovely guests and it was no problem to send back your dog harnesses. I hope your pups enjoyed running around as well! We hope you can come back again sometime!

We celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary at The Treehouse Cabin Retreat & had the most wonderful time! From the moment of booking, Kari was an awesome host to work with, giving us all the info and recommendations we needed to plan and be prepared for our stay. Between the magical treehouse & cozy cabin along with the peaceful grounds, we had all we needed and more! Even though it was just the two of us to enjoy the large property, it still felt cozy & comfortable. We had a lot of fun exploring to discover all the little details that make this place so special including a secret trap door room in the treehouse! So fun!! We sincerely appreciated Kari's attention to detail and care for a sustainable, eco-friendly experience. We left inspired, rested, & happy and will cherish the memories we made there forever. Thank you, Kari!

Beautiful property. The treehouse is amazing with lovely decor. The cabin is roomy. Plenty of games and movies for the kids. Short drive to parks and natural springs. Kari was responsive and accommodating. She even has a neighbor who will deliver your firewood for a reasonable price.

We had an amazing time! Even the side plans we cancelled just so we could enjoy the site more! The place had some side games and swings for playing and enjoyment. We do recommend replacing the hammock though, it was unable to be enjoyed as much. As well as providing some night light options for playing the games at night. We used our flashlights off the pole (sad we couldn’t slide down😭)
The morning views and nature is a fun addition! We even named the local squirrels and owl.

We had a blast!! Oh and that outdoor shower was a huge game changer!! Very much enjoyed!!

Actually quite enjoyed the available games!!Outside shower was great!Fred the owl 🦉 Card games!

Thanks for your review! We're so happy you all enjoyed your stay! We are working on additional upgrades like more lights (without ruining the night skies), an improved outdoor shower, and we've ordered a new hammock. We hope to continue to make this a fun, unique and relaxing place to get away and enjoy nature! Hope you can visit again!

A wonderful treehouse cabin

Kari has created the most wonderful cabin and treehouse retreat. Tucked away near the coast and off the grid, staying here allowed us to enjoy time together around the fire and all the little things you would imagine you'd want out there.

Even though we had everything we would have needed there, the location is also pretty close to many spectacular spots and Kari provided great suggestions to visit. I really thought the labels, instructions, and amenities provided was a nice touch and made the experience that much better. Especially the check-in and check-out process. If you're looking to unplug from technology for a little while, this is the place to visit.

My family of six had an amazing stay at this cabin. The property has everything needed for a weekend of relaxation outdoors. The decor in the treehouse and cabin is so cute and cozy. My favorite part of my trip was sitting by the fire at night. At sundown we saw and heard bats flying over us, and in the dark we got to see fireflies and heard the owl nearby. My children really enjoyed the swing, hammock, and outdoor games. The owner is extremely thorough and I came prepared thanks to all her advice. We hope to visit your cabin again in the future; thank you Kari for a wonderful stay!

The Treehouse Cabin Retreat is fantastic. I had a great weekend relaxing with some old college friends, but the treehouse also seemed like it would be a lot of fun for families with kids, and the property looked ideal for a hunting or fishing weekend. I had no cell reception on property, but that added to the ambiance. The iron-rich well water was a little harsh, but otherwise the cabin and treehouse were both very comfortable.

Really a dream come true! The cabin has a reminiscent feeling of summer camp. Very cozy and all of the accoutrements to keep you comfortable. I was surprised by the full kitchen, televisions, movies, games, and so many extra linens, towels, and blankets. The Treehouse was pure magic!! Felt so special to have the opportunity to stay in such an awe-inspiring, beautiful place. It was created and decorated with meticulous detail. I kept dreaming of when I could reserve this spot again only to stay longer. We had a short drive and full day at Ginnie Springs which was fabulous! We had dinner at Suwannee Belle Restaurant right on the water with great food, great vibe and live music. Then visited Devils Den about an hour away as we headed home. The trip was peaceful and so good for the soul! Thank you Keri for sharing your absolute gem with us!!

It is a great place. We recommend placing a pair of garden gloves, a chainsaw or an axe in the cabin. That will help on cutting the logs when needed.
It is also good to bring a roll of aluminum foil if you want to use the charcol grill or smoker.
