Highly recommend this unique treehouse stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay here with our 2 little boys(5&6). They especially loved the 2 friendly dogs on the property that spent an evening with us around our campfire. The boys also loved the pirate theme and hiking around the property. I personally enjoyed the AC and all the cozy details that were put into this place. Truly unique stay, it was worth the drive!!

Awesome treehouse cabin with character

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four just got home from our two night stay at the Captains Quarters treehouse. We are already missing the quaint charm of the treehouse and wish we didn't have to leave. Bob really put a lot of heart into the design of the treehouse. From the wrap around deck, to the outside shower and privy, to the nautical theme throughout, the place is awesome. We will have to come back to try the other treehouse and log cabin when it's ready.

What an amazing place to make memories!

  • 5 of 5

We were close to home but felt like a million miles away, in our own space. What a great place to get away.

Captain's Quarters was a cozy retreat.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in the Captain's Quarters treehouse. It rained while we were there so we didn't do any hiking in the woods. The house had everything we needed during our two night stay. Bob thought of everything.
