For those wanting "off the grid nature experience" The treehouse does have electricity, lights, full kitchenette, and back up space heater. You will stay super cozy with a favorite feature - an inside wood- burning stove. Make sure to watch our show ~The Kentucky Climbers Cottage prior to coming. People say it makes the stay more enjoyable. The best feature of this tree house are the barn doors that bring the inside in. Imagine you start your morning enjoying your breakfast or a cup of coffee in front of a crackling fire next to the wood burning stove in the middle of the woods in a treehouse! Head outside to hike the rolling hills, check out the views and solitude of old growth trees, nature and forest. A fully stocked kitchenette inside has everything you need to cook all your meals including 3-gallon tank of water, pots and pans, plates, bowls, and utensils. With a portable sink for clean up Sleeping arrangements include Casper mattress king size bed on second floor and on first floor is pull down sofa with bedding in the sofa. There is also a air mattress in the sofa. This tree house would sleep two adults and three small kids. With the treehouse having electricity, you have cool stained glass lights, ceiling fan and air!! ...You can also cook up a delicious barbecue dinner on our gas grill outside on large deck with comfortable seating that overlooks the valley. Venture down to the hammock below the tree house for peaceful relaxation. A fire-pit is strategically placed to view from the huge deck or comfortable seating to roast marsh mellows This is 1 of 3 tree houses at EarthJOY Treehouse Village in Germantown Ky. The treehouses are strategically placed to ensure you have privacy and close enough if you desire to book them for family gathering. In the summer with full follage you can't see the other treehouses. As 4x superhosts we take pride in details to make your trip memorable!

OUR NEWEST is the hobbit tree house trail where you can find yourself immersed in finding the 10 hobbit houses. Make your way to the end of the trail to make a wish in the creek located by the oldest tree on the property. We have just added the cabana village. A tree pods that hold two adults.

Please read through this entire description before booking. Check in to treehouse and or property is 4PM. Early check ins to property or tree house can be prearranged for 25.00 organization/expedite fee or we recommend booking two nights to fully take advantage of all the property has to offer. Please take note*** If you love Wildlife and do not mind critters. The tree house is in the middle of the woods you may encounter a mouse, wasp, bees, ticks, deer, turkey, flies, ants, water bugs, hear coyotes, and owls especially out on the trails. This is their home too! We ask that you be a person that respects wildlife. We use natural deterrents that work to keep critters out of the tree house. Since part of the adventure are the famous barn doors that open to the outside occasionally one may sneak in. We recommend not leaving the barn doors open when you leave the tree house for a hike or overnight since flying insects love the tree house. **A favorite of guests is visiting the Historical town of Augusta Ky. Childhood home to George Clooney. The Irish Pub is a great place to eat (call ahead for open hours) and have a ice cream after at the general store across the street. For more fine dining we recommend the beehive tavern that overlooks the Ohio river. Visit the small red train with historical info and take a stroll along the beautiful Ohio River just two blocks to the left of the pub. Augusta is also home to underground railroad. Take a magical ferry ride across river and visit small town of Ripley. Find a place to eat along the river. You can take bridge back to Maysville and visit their historical downtown. Eat at Parc Cafe-A Italian cafe replica or LILJumbo. When you head out you may want to stop for breakfast at Donna's Mom and Pop in Brooksville Ky. For quick bite to eat order a Pizza from the Germantown 1st stop Gas station 4 miles and pick it up. Phone number is in the treehouse. The Tree house is our dream come true. I wanted a treehouse since I was 10 years old. I believed it would bring me peace. I would play in the woods with my siblings imagining this treehouse ...bordering it with small branches, using rocks as our furniture and moss as our carpet. I never let go of having this space and thought about it often. When Bill and I started our dream company EarthJOY Tree adventures in 2007. Whereas we take clients to the top of trees on ropes. As part of this venture we wanted to give them another experience. Why not be able to stay in a treehouse too?? We set off to take Pete Nelsons LEARN HOW TO BUILD A TREEHOUSE in 2009 workshop. After the workshop we looked high and low for the perfect property to have this dream come true. We ran into many obstacles one being not able to afford it or not the right trees. When we saw Pete on Animal planet I thought I would just apply for the fun of it. We didn't even have a place. When they called and accepted our application I called Dad. I asked him if we could build a treehouse on his 200 acre farm. He laughed and then said YES! He said he was tired of running two farms and his dream of having a huge cattle farm would just have to be turned into building a few treehouses. Animal Planet wanted to share this story and hence our episode is famous and called "THE KENTUCKY CLIMBERS COTTAGE" After three years they still air it on Treehouse Masters/AP. December of 2014 marks the year my childhood dream finally came true. Not only do I mark off time to enjoy my treehouse myself.. I also set aside time for my Womens workshops and our treeclimbing clients. They not only have an incredible experience via a guided tree climb they also get the full immersion of being held by 10 trees in a TREEHOUSE! The adventure begins on the journey to the treehouse. As you wind your way through the beautiful back roads you can stop over at Augusta for a romantic dinner and a walk along the Ohio River. The treehouse is secluded and tucked in the woods so you feel like you are off the grid. It has a propane stove inside for simple meals and a gas grill outside for more elaborate meals. Be sure to watch the story behind the treehouse on Animal Planet -The Kentucky Climbers Cottage **** IMPORTANT !!!

Our family had a fantastic time during our treehouse adventure. We only stayed one night, but we would have loved to have stayed longer. We were amazed at the beautiful trails and all the fun spots to stop along the way. This place is just incredible!

I booked this last minute the night before while looking for a nice place to be the last stop of my road trip. Though my stay was short, after a long day of driving it was nice to be able to go and hike some of the trails and stretch the legs. The tree house itself was great. It was very nice and clean inside. Shelly was great and got in touch with all the information I needed right away. Wish I could have stayed longer.
