This rustic cabin, surrounded by woods and bordered by a creek, is a off-grid experience. Reconnect with nature. Sit around the campfire. Rest in a hammock. Listen to the brook sing. Experience 'camping-lite' in The Treehouse. There is no electricity or running water. Connectivity is spotty.
The interior is simple, with a loft bedroom. On the main floor, there is a simple kitchen area with cabinets and supplies. There is also a futon. A deck extends from the cabin. A Coleman Stove is provided.
Get outside in the fresh air. We are doing our best to keep everything clean and sanitary. I have put a 24 hour buffer between guests in order to clean and air out the building. If you have any questions about what I am doing, and if you feel confident, please ask.
IF YOU WISH TO BOOK MORE THAN TWO PEOPLE, PLEASE MESSAGE ME. There is an additional of charge of $10 per person, per night. With tents, this location can accommodate 10 or more people.
Located in the Brushy Mountains of Western North Carolina, this peaceful refuge, is nestled between a rock shelf and a creek. The little hollow is a great place for play or just getting away from it all. Once our guests arrive, they seldom want to leave.
Walk down the steep hillside to the 12x12 insulated cabin, which is extended with a 10x12 ft. deck. The Tree House hangs off of a rock ledge and is supported by trees. Whether rain or shine, this location is peaceful, private, and serene. Dogwood trees hang gracefully over the deck. Larger trees dapple the large, private site with partial shade. Wade into the shallow stream, sit on the deck, rest near the fire pit, or sit on the tree swings, and hammocks, and listen to the little stream that borders the camp.
The interior of the cabin is small, simple, but comfortable and includes a loft with a queen sized bed. On the main floor is a futon which converts into a double or two single beds. The kitchen includes cabinets for storage and a place for food preparation. To make your stay easier, we have added a few essentials, food items, as well as cooking equipment. On the deck there is Coleman cooking stove available for your use. There is an oil lamp, tea candles, and solar lights for your convenience.
The paths have solar lights so you can find your way in the dark. It is very, very dark at night under the tree canopy. Please bring a flashlight so you can get around safely.
There is a small, exterior, but attached outhouse with a sawdust composting toilet. This room has a battery powered motion light so you won't be stuck in the dark. There is a different place with a solar heated shower bag is available. You can also wash up in the creek.
For those in your company who prefer a more primitive camping experience, there is plenty of room to pitch tents. If you have a larger group of people, you can also book our second site, The Suspended Sanctuary Tree Tent. The two sites are close enough for easy visiting but far enough a part for privacy.
Play in the stream, follow the brook down to the neighbor's horse pasture, and into the woods, or wander upstream to the man-made waterfall. Walk up the gravel road to our farm and meet our goats, chickens, donkeys, and horses. This is a working hobby farm.
Homemade treats and farm fresh chicken eggs are given to our guests, as available. We offer homemade gluten-free bake goods, bread, and muffins, from my gluten free kitchen.
TRASH REMOVAL: For your convenience, there is a bin for recyclables, and a compost pile next to the garden. I will dispose of the human waste.
If you bring a tarp, you can stretch it over the deck to keep out rain and sun, as well as extending your living space if you do get a rainy day.
WINTER CAMPING: The wood stove that you see in the photos is merely decoration. There is no stovepipe. While many are capable of using a wood stove, all it takes is one mistake. So, we have provided a Mr. Heater Buddy that runs on 1# propane canisters. Please bring your own fuel. The directions on the Mr. Heater says that it burns 6 hours on low and 3 hours on high. The cabin is insulated and stays warm. Where we live, it is cold at night and often pleasant during the day.
THIS IS AN OFF-GRID outdoor experience. There are spiders, bugs, crayfish, snakes, wild animals, dirt, etc. Please bring bug-spray.
