    The camp is perfect for a weekend or week long getaway. It is exactly how it is described. They are great hosts who give the place thoughtful touches and provide local tips. Would definitely stay again or reccomend to others visiting the area.

  • The magical treehouse is stunning to see in person - but walking inside makes you believe in magic for a second! (Light spoiler alert until the end of the paragraph, if you want to be extra surprised by how magical the treehouse is) - We arrived at night and the hosts had set it up with twiggy holiday lights wrapping around the interior room, elf music playing gently from a cd player, and a little faux-fireplace space heater. The walls are lined with novels and novelties that could provide days of intrigue, the forest views are upstaged by the cute furniture and handmade trimming, and a dining table had a little jar of homemade syrup next to a photo album of the treehouse being made. The magical feeling is clearly made a reality by decades of passion, experience, and love.

    We visited the last week of November: it was essentially winter-camping. The hosts were clear about this up front and reached out before we even confirmed to make sure we'd be comfortable and prepared. The treehouse was maybe 2 degrees warmer than what was outside. The space heater up there accomplishes very little, although a heated blanked does make the bed somewhat cozier. We slept in sub-10 degree F weather the last night, and I had to wear long socks, two pants, two sweaters, and a hat pulled around my face. I was cozy and happy though! The bathroom is inside a well-heated cabin, and makes the mornings, evenings, and bathroom trips quite pleasant. It's really nice with a hot shower and plenty of space to change in the heat.

    The property is adorable, we cooked at their huge firepit a few times. There is a screened-in cookhouse, which means it has 0 insulation as well. If you're cooking on the property, you'll be cooking outdoors (although under a roof with a nice table/campstove). The hosts provided sufficient firewood, although we brought a bit of our own and had an extra-big blaze.

    Overall, I would highly recommend this experience (the winter version) to anyone who
    1) Can prepare and adapt for a full-on magical adventure. Do not under prepare for sleeping here.
    2) Can climb up slightly slippery, steep stairs. This does require some finesse to enter, I would not recommend it to my family with knee issues as much as they'd love the space.
    3) Likes nature, homemade carpentry, elf-vibes, really anything. If you can survive the cold and make it up the stairs, you'll make a life-long memory.

    The hosts are extremely communicative and experienced, just reach out if you have questions!

  • OMG I can't say enough about this place! Absolutely MAGICAL! I've stayed MANY places, and this has by far been the most unique and wonderfully memorable! Words can't adequately describe the natural beauty and wonder of this place! And not only are the accommodations beyond lovely, but the host's warm hospitality is unmatched! They truly go above and beyond in making your stay comfortable, and they are two of the nicest, most genuine people we've ever met! I honestly cannot say enough about this stay, and we cannot WAIT to go back! By far our favorite stay yet! Thank you so so much, Sheila and Bob! It was such a pleasure meeting you both! :)))

    This is a lovely outdoor camp in the northern reaches of the Adirondacks. It was immensely peaceful. We sat each night in front of a fire watching the fireflies. We were given great hints for good places to head locally as well. Everything was there for cooking and the out house is very clean. Showers are available back at the main house for a small fee.

  • The log lean-to and surrounding property is a really fun place to camp. There is a natural rock climbing wall next to the campsite, and several trails looping around the area. We enjoyed the stars, hikes, and wildlife in the area very much.

    Beautful location. Great communication. very clean and SO many wonderful little touches made it perfect for our family; beautiful (well marked) walking trails, local maple syrup (so yummy) to enjoy with a leisurely breakfast, proximity to PSC, the firepit (set up for match light with dry firewood nearby) for chatting late into the night. It was a wonderful weekend ! Thank you Bob and Sheila for a wonderful time!

    We indeed had an amazing time at Sheila and Bob's treehouse. It was an incredible experience amidst the mountains and the forest. They gave us the best travel tips and recommendations to get around the hiking trails. We wish to be back during the winters !!!

  • Had the most amazing break away from the city. The local towns are lovely, with lots of things to do in the area - Bob & Sheila's recommendations were great. The treehouse itself was very cute and private. Highly recommend spending an evening by the campfire! Delighted to be your first Irish guests but certainly won't be the last!

  • All the reviews I read did measure up to our expectations! Beautiful property, very private, friendly helpful staff. It was our first visit to the Adirondacks and we were provided with printed out directions to spectacular sight seeing mts, nature walks, and nearby markets for anything we had forgotten or ran out of. This was an unforgettable camping trip we will never forget!

    Overlook lean to was nothing short of amazing. It had so many amenities and Sheila and her husband were so nice! It rained the night we stayed and we all felt so cozy listening to the rain on the tin roof. The next morning we woke up to a beautiful view of fall leaves, dry and happy! I highly recommend this wonderful glamping experience.
