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.

Back porch great spot for morning light and reading.Coffee & eggs with a treetop view.Good times swinging in trees.Back shot. 4 Adirondack chairs round firepit and a small table as well. Note it is built on a hill. Careful of footing.

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!

One of the many wind chimes we found hanging in the treesThis girl loves her slides - this one did not disappoint!On the tire swing we happened to find on the propertyThe lodge, located as you enter the property - houses the Hickory's bathhouse.

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!
