Gorgeous property with the kindest, most hospitable family you could hope for. Our 8 and 3 year old boys had a magical and transformative time in the treehouse. Sara and Jim provided everything we needed and more. A sincerest thank you from our family to yours for a memorable experience.

Jim and Sara have a lovely piece of property! They both greeted us as we pulled in and we got to meet their dog, Django, and hen, Tulip! We hopped on their all terrain golf cart and Jim gave us the lay of the land. He also took care to make sure we knew what poison ivy looked like. It definitely exists on the property, but just stay on the mower paths and you are AOK.

The tree house is back in the corner of the property and feels very secluded. It has its own fire pit and picnic table, and the (newest, cleanest ever) out house is nearby. The ladder to the treehouse is angled and has flat steps but no railing. Our 2.5yo daughter climbed them with ease, and we made sure one of us was behind her. We minimized the amount of stuff we brought up with us for the night, and didn’t actually need much up top! The treehouse has a super comfy futon bed (blankets, sheets, and pillows provided!), a side table with great kids nature games and area brochures, a 5 gallon water dispenser, a cozy rug, and a couple of poofs. There is a front deck and a back deck with a little bistro table and 2 chairs. Great for evening wine or AM coffee!

My daughter and I spent about an hour in their heated outdoor pool while my husband relaxed at the campsite. The pool was SO great to enjoy after a long day. When we were there their pool was warmer than the air. It felt fantastic. They also have a hot tub that would be awesome for a fall visit.

Jim came around with coffee in the morning. What a host! You can tell these hosts love having visitors. They are super hospitable and accommodating.

Know that this isn’t a luxury tree house experience. There is no power (bring a lantern) and there are bugs. It’s camping! We loved it.

Trail on the property. Open yard at the back of the house. Trail on the property. Sunset view out the door while we played games.
