Located on the grounds of the Duckpond Pottery, The Quack Shack is a secluded treehouse perched along the banks of the French broad River. The structure is an 8x10 A-frame that transforms via a hinged wall to become an open air cabana with an expansive deck that affords spectacular views of the French Broad River and surrounding countryside. The interior of the Quack Shack, with its vaulted 11 foot ceiling and earthen plaster walls feels more Italian villa than shack. It is furnished with a comfortable seating area surrounding a coffee table that at night can be easily converted to a full-size queen bed. On the outside deck are beach chairs and a chimenea available for use. The quack shack has electric power (1 outlet only). Amenities include a bathroom located a short walk away at the main building as well as an open air on demand shower located off the bathroom on a deck overlooking the French Broad River. Morning coffee and tea is available at The Tea Hut located just a hop, skip, and jump from the treehouse. NOTE: The Duckpond Pottery is a working studio pottery and gallery that is open to the public. It is also home to occasional open-air house concerts on the deck at the pottery. The host generally blocks concert dates, however, it is worth double-checking with the host that there will not be a concert if you desire a quieter experience. The site is accessed via a short trail through the trees down a gentle, sloping hill, and finally by a short stairway, and as such it may not be easily accessible for campers with limited mobility.Located on the grounds of the Duckpond Pottery, The Quack Shack is a secluded treehouse perched along the banks of the French broad River.

Nicks treehouse retreat was JUST what we needed for a little respite, inspiration and magic! Nothing beats opening the treehouse doors to a river view and a walk through the bamboo forest✨ Just BOOK! You won't be disappointed! Nick is kind and accommodating with great communication. Be sure to check out his pottery while you're there too! We'll definitely be back!✨✨✨

Magical night in the trees.
We had an amazing experience at the Quack Shack. The location and treehouse were magical. The host was attentive and available when we needed him but gave us space to enjoy the property with privacy. We had a fire, watched the sunset, then the moonrise, with a the sounds of the river rushed by all night long. The beds were comfy and the hut was cozy. The hammocks were a nice touch. In the morning we had maté tea and coffee with Nick. He had bossanova playing in the background (how did he know that’s what we listen to at dinner at home?). We talked about pottery and his future plans for the property. He gave us some ideas for local hikes. If I could give it an 11 out of 10, I would. We will definitely be back!
