Floating Heaven is a treehouse site. 

You can sleep in the small, zinc-roof-covered 'casita' which can accommodate two adults and two (small) children. Or you can sleep on the deck platform in a hammock (we have one free one), a tent (bring your own or rent our 2- and 4-person tents), or in a sleeping bag(s).

Floating Heaven is a treehouse site. 

You can sleep in the small, zinc-roof-covered 'casita' which can accommodate two adults and two (small) children. Or you can sleep on the deck platform in a hammock (we have one free one), a tent (bring your own or rent our 2- and 4-person tents), or in a sleeping bag(s). One platform is 10 x 10 ft. and the other is 10 x 12 ft. Eight trees pass through the platforms, located 21 feet off the ground. A sturdy low-riser step leads you up (no climbing necessary). 

An acre of heavily forested trees and a meadow surround the site, which is not a primitive campground (i.e, far removed from civilization) but insulated from the town on its ex-urban perimeter. The term, floating heaven, refers to the tree-anchor bolts that allow the platforms to "float" when the tree canopies (60 feet tall) move in the wind. 

We'll get you going with some kindling and a few logs; lots of down branches and tree trunks on the property for making a nice bonfire, or you can use a small fire pit (metal) for a cozier setting. We have tables, chairs, a very slow drip-camp shower (unheated), a Theborn RV commode on the ground, and a urinal on the top deck. There is a charcoal grill for your use at no charge. . There is also a 3-prong adapter for charging up your phones or using other electric devices. 

Ours is an ex-urban location; you are just two miles from Virginia Tech (5 minutes from Starbucks, and Mexican and Thai restaurants) but you are nestled under a nice hardwood canopy. Its the best of all possible worlds!

R U L E S

1). Try to arrive before sunset so we can show you around; after all, it is a treehouse and there are safety issues you should be apprised of.

2). You will forfeit your reservation if you arrive after 9 p.m.

3). While 6 people is the maximum, the standard book rate includes 4 campers; additional campers over 12 years old should pay $15 a person. Thus far, Hipcamp hasn't figured out how to pay for the fifth and sixth guests so be prepared to pay cash or via Venmo.

4). Parents must take care that their children obey the safety features. There are trails around the property that are nicely graded and gravel-covered.

5). All electronics go off after 9 p.m.; sounds carry in the valley.

6). We recycle: two wastebaskets exist for trash and another for recyclables (aluminum, glass, cardboard, plastic). Please carry wastebaskets up and leave them on the driveway. We'll separate and dispose of them.

7). A camping ethic to which we adhere is that you take out of the forest what you bring into it; be considerate. This is not a trailer park.

8.) We are proudly LGBTQ-friendly.

9.), if you are over 12-years-old and are not vaccinated, you must wear a mask when engaging with the owners and others outside your party.

Was nice to have a night alone, but totally safe and not alone-alone!

Unique place to stay on a beautiful piece of land! Perfect place to rest on a cross country journey and Joe even made me coffee in the morning before I left!

Floating Heaven exceeded all expectations! The location is perfect for stargazing and a great nights sleep in the cozy treehouse. Joe and Gilda were welcoming and communicative hosts, and had the fire pit all ready to start by the time I arrived. It was comfortable in the treehouse even on a chilly February night with the little space heater inside. Will absolutely stay again when I’m in the area next!

The treehouse was so cute and quaint. The fire pit was warming and the casita was perfect for 2 humans + 2 (big) dogs.
Joe was so welcoming with a warm smile and greeting AND the fire pit and torches lit for our arrival.

What a wonderful experience! Joseph is an amazing host with a beautiful piece of property! The little casita was perfect for our drizzly weekend.

This place is amazing! We didn't have enough time to dabble in the yoga, but Joseph was an impeccable host, and the property is beautiful!! The tree house is plenty safe and the accommodations are plentiful. I will 100% be staying here again next time Im in the area. Take heed to the recommendation about packing light...too many trips to the car from the treehouse will wear you out.

This is a cool place to stay. It has a great view and lots of charm. The little casita kept my son and I dry. The night we were there it rained heavily and we were as dry as can be. Great place!

Def a one time experience!

Had a lot of fun! Joe did a great job building the mini room on the platform! The greenery was gorgeous and had the most fun exploring the property during the day! Amazing and would love to stay again!
