I can't say enough positive things about Sheila and the treehouse. If you're looking for the most magical place in the Adirondacks, you've found it. The property is gorgeous and secluded, close to Lake Placid, Saranac Lake, and Paul Smiths. Waking up in the canopy is as wonderful as it sounds. There is a tree swing and even a porch in the treehouse! It was nice and cool in the summer but there's a beautiful stove that I assume will keep it nice and toasty in winter! The screened-in cookhouse is just a stone's throw from the treehouse. It has everything you'll need (pots, pans, cutlery, french press, cooler, etc.), and if the weather is bad, you have an indoor cooking stove that makes everything super easy. The bathroom is in the building next door and is clean and well-kept. Everything about our stay, from speaking with Sheila beforehand, to the delicious, family-made maple syrup as a welcome gift, to our time in the treehouse was incredible. I can't wait to come back, would absolutely recommend!

Not only did the tree house offer a fun and cozy place to stay, but the property was magical. Sheila and Bob have carved trails that offer an afternoon of wandering, with hidden gems throughout their backyard (including a lean-to and sugar shack). We appreciated Sheila and Bob for their spirit and kindness, and loved learning about how they cultivated both. It was a chilly weekend- the heated blanket kept us warm at night, and the warm bathroom came much appreciated. Lastly, one cannot leave without a taste of Bob's delicious maple syrup!

Our stay at the magical treehouse was everything we hoped for and more! It was private, peaceful, and unique! Upon our arrival we were greeted by Chrissy and she made us feel very welcome and made sure we were comfortable. Although we did not get to meet Sheila and Bob because they were away, they still communicated with us and were very helpful and informative! Everything was so nicely put together and clean. I loved every minute of being here and exploring this beautiful land. We will definitely be returning as I think I found my little escape! Highly recommend staying here!

Sheila and Bob's treehouse is one of the most magical and unique places we've ever stayed! Not only are they the sweetest hosts (we ended up just hanging out and chatting for most of the day!), but everything was so clean and comfortable that we felt right at home. The bathroom is super close by (in the main building right next to the treehouse), the screened in cooking area is so cozy, and the fire pit would be great for summer/fall nights making smores! Plus you're pretty close to both Saranac Lake and Lake Placid if you're down for a little drive. They built the treehouse themselves in the 80's and it looks like something right out of Treehouse Masters! Plus, their super sweet puppy Denali brought us all of the sticks we could have ever wanted. We will absolutely be coming back whenever we're in the area.

We enjoyed our 5 Wedding Anniversary here! Perfect “Wood” Gift! Everyone was so friendly and made our experience Amazing!!! We will be returning and sharing such a great experience. Temps at night dropped down but we were warm with the space heater and electric blanket. Beautiful lighting in the treehouse and decor make it a unique visit. The grounds are beautiful and easy to explore!
