Looking for a personal retreat or get away ? Escape to our beautiful, RUSTIC 34 acre wild homestead / farm. Just 90 minutes from DC and Baltimore.

Our treehouse is a primitive shelter in the woods that sleeps two, has a futon on a wooden pallet frame for a bed, is surrounded by a deck for enjoying life in the tree tops and a fire ring on the ground below for sitting around the campfire. Two of the walls of the treehouse are solid wood and the other 2 are all screens. It is a mildly steep, but short (under one minute) walk from car to treehouse, and steps leading up to treehouse are very steep. *We do not recommend this for parents with small children. 

Sheets and pillows are not provided. Please bring a sleeping bag to sleep on futon as if you were camping. There is a small wooden makeshift camp table on ground below for a temporary kitchen space as well as a porch swing. Deck chairs are provided. You will need to bring your own camp stove, or cook over open fire . **Since this is a treehouse , please note that it is suspended between living trees that are growing up through the deck. That means that when it is very windy, the treehouse will move and sway slightly with the trees, and make creaking sounds that will remind you of being on the deck of a pirate ship. Not to worry - this is perfectly normal. 

This is a working medicinal herb farm, a community , as well as our home. Please read all of our guidelines thoroughly, as well as **ARRIVAL INSTRUCTIONS** , they will tell you what to do when you arrive and how to get to treehouse ! We do not provide firewood, but you can buy a bundle from 7/11 or Food lion just down the road, No arrivals after 8pm.

Feel free to wander through the herb gardens, eat your meals in the garden pavilion (we have picnic tables), hang out in the hammocks, get your Zen on in the meditation hut , and stroll through the woodland medicine path where we grow endangered and at at risk plants. You may see our dog, Tulsi wandering about. Please let her sniff you first as she is old and going blind, and that helps. 

Downtown Shepherdstown, the Potomac River and the C &O Trail is just 10 minutes away. Upon arrival, grab a handout from the box on the visitor parking sign. The map on the back has a layout of the land and should point you in the right direction of  water, shower, outhouse, and whatever else you might be looking for, including recommendations of great places to eat in town and fun things to do.

Shepherdstown Peddle and Paddle in town offers rentals for kayaking , canoeing tubing or biking. We are also within an hour drive to the Appalachian Trail and several state parks - Harper’s Ferry, Washington Monument State Park, Gathland State Park , Shenandoah National Park and Catoctin Mountain State Park !!

We offer a variety of classes and events on the weekends as well. Small groups... not to worry. We have 34 acres, so there is plenty of space. If you would like to know what we are offering for the weekend, you can visit our website sacredrootswv.com.

- Campfires - We do not provide firewood. Please bring your own firewood bundle. 7-Eleven and Food Lion just 10 minutes away has some for sale, and you are welcome to forage from downed trees and branches . Woodpile in front of yurt (our home) and in Sacred Circle is not for public use. Please DO NOT burn fires in Sacred Circle fire ring (we use that for ceremony only), or fire ring by yurt . Thanks.

It is a great tiny treehouse, very sturdily built and clean. Nice deck for drinking coffee in the morning and listening to the birds. We enjoying seeing the herb gardens, pavilion, and meditation hut. Great place to stargaze, although it was cloudy during our stay. We appreciated having Hilary stop by to say hello.

Quiet, beautiful and fulfilling. The herb gardens are encouraging, the meditation hut is peaceful and calming, the host is amiable and helpful, and the treehouse is perfect! Take a few minutes at least to sit on the deck and breathe in the fresh air, and have a turn on the swing to look deeply into the trees that are supporting and protecting you during your stay!

The treehouse was a perfect getaway spot! We LOVED the farm and even visited the local shop where the herbs are sold in town- such a great experience! It was nice and secluded but also near town and close to hiking spots and a great winery.

Short on time rn, but this was a lovely little spot! Secluded from the other 2 sites, it was really pleasant. Stairs slippery when wet especially with fall leaves so take care! Also, take note that the bed is a futon on a bare pallet, so you will want to bring something like an air mattress to put on top of it.

The treehouse was a great spot to land on an impromptu camping trip. It felt very sturdy and safe, and we loved the feeling of sleeping in the trees. It was a bit cold because there are only screens and no way to add any wind protection (tarps), plus, we were camping in November, so that is on us also! ;) I didn't realize when booking the site, there was a shelf under the treehouse where we could set up our camping stove, so that was convenient. (We had brought a table but didn't need it.) There were a couple plastic lawn chairs there which were appreciated since I forgot ours! We liked walking around the farm and especially looking up at the stars at night. The coyotes were really active while we were there, so that was entertaining, felt completely safe up in the tree. There were some sounds of distant trains in case that bothers anyone, it didn't disturb us. There is a shared outhouse about 200 yards away, and it is a short 1-2 min walk from the car to the treehouse, but that was easy to navigate, and made it feel more private. There are couple other campsites that we could see in the distance (just their fires). In the summer, the leaves would obscure them, they weren't that close. We brought our own water, they have some but it wasn't close to the campsite. But if you need it, they have it. The directions were perfect and easy to follow! Beautiful spot and we enjoyed our stay.
