The legacy of Santa Fe Tree House Camp includes rustic tree house style cabins. The original creators of the camp wanted to make a safe place for children to enjoy the outdoors. Now, these tree houses are available for family and adult reservations to relive the childlike wonder of sleeping amidst the trees.

There are 6 treehouse structures of various distance from the outdoor kitchen and bathhouse.

We provide mattresses with mattress covers, you need to bring your own sheets, blankets, pillows or sleeping bags as well as towels and toiletries. If you are traveling without these items let us know ahead of time and we may be able to offer these for a small fee.

These structures are all raised from the ground (not high up in the top of trees) with openings for windows (no glass), and nestled amid the trunks and branches of ponderosa, piñon, and juniper trees. There are no heaters or air conditioning so please bring warm clothes and bedding for your comfort.

The 3 Pegasus tree houses (site 1,2 3) are closest to the outdoor kitchen with  community fridges, stove, toaster oven, microwave, propane grill, blender, coffee maker (bring your own ground coffee), plates, bowls, cooking and eating utensils.  The area has a communal fire pit and benches. These treehouses would be ideal for families and groups of friends wanting to stay close together and near the bathrooms. There is electricity here.    

NOTE:  Pegasus # 2 (site # 2) has 2 hanging cots that are appropriate for smaller people who don't move too much in their sleep. There are two low frame beds beneath the hanging cots and one regular height double bed.

NOTE: Pegasus #3 (site 3) has a short ladder to climb to enter.

The 3 Tecolote tree houses (sites 4,5,6) are a further walk from the outdoor kitchen and bathhouse. They are slightly further apart from one another (than Pegasus treehouses) with the most tree cover for privacy. There is a communal, designated fire pit and stunning views of the mountains. Within a comfortable walking distance (5 minutes) from the bath house. There is no electricity at the Tecolote sites ( sites 4-5-6. 

NOTE: Tecolote 3 (site #6) has a small ladder to climb to enter.

There are beautiful views and easy access to Shaggy Peak, the  southernmost tip of the Rocky Mountains and the Sangre de Cristo Mountain Range. Wander our land to enjoy a 20 minute hike to a creek in the forest or climb up Shaggy Peak (about 2-7 hours round trip hiking, depending on your activity level). 

NOTE: We are up a 2 mile dirt road and are not near public transportation so you will need your own vehicle, motorcycle, bike, or horse! Be aware that the roads can be snowy in early spring, late fall and winter. At those times of the year we recommend a car with front-wheel, all track or four-wheel drive and good traction tires.


To maintain the tranquility of our guests stays we are taking these steps to curb late arrivals.

We recommend you consider arriving while it is still light out. It makes locating us easier and you will get to experience our beautiful sunsets and have more time to enjoy on this enchanted hilltop!

Checkin times are now as follows:


Please do not come before 4pm without prior permission.

It is your responsibility to arrange a late checkin and keep the host notified of your changing ETA.

A $20 late fee will be charged from 9pm-10pm. 

If you arrive between 10pm-11am a $40 late fee will be charged.

After 11am the host has the right to refuse entry without a refund, or place you in a site they feel will be the least obtrusive to other guests. 

(Note: Quiet hours are from 10pm-8am)

The cabin in the trees provided wonderful views and comfortable beds. The bath/shower house was very nice, and we found all the supplies we needed in the communal kitchen. Take advantage of the hiking on the property and nearby Forest Service land, you won't be disappointed. Our stay was in site #4, which is Tecolote 1. You will have people walking past to access site #5; everyone was quiet and respectful, but if you want to avoid that reserve sites 5 or 6. All in all, this was a nice stay in Santa Fe.

Such a great place to stay outside of Santa Fe. The weather was perfect so the screen windows made the cabin feel incredible with fresh air. I would definitely recommend checking out their trails also!

The place is clean and the environment is nice, the cabin inside could be better, seems like a mesh of beds but still a cool place to pass by.

It was a wonderful stay. Lots of communication and everything went smoothly and peacefully. Cabin was huge, facilities were nice and activities were a nice perk.

We loved our stay! The treehouse was cozy and perfect during a monsoon storm. We slept like babies! It was also reasonably priced for the size of the cabins. Some of the windows didn’t have screens and we got some bugs and even a bat visitor but overall it wasn’t a bad thing. Lots of fresh air and amenities on property. The hike to the “falls” was lovely! The hosts were super sweet and very apologetic at the state of the bathroom. Showers and toilets worked great but their building materials for the outside of new bathroom house were delayed due to covid. Overall we loved this stay and we will DEFINITELY be back with friends!

Very nice camp. Loved the views and was a welcome getaway. Shaggy Peak was close by and a challenging hike but worth the views!
Ciana and Brad were gracious and helpful hosts. Will definitely return!
