    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.

  • Look no further! What a wonderful stay! The treehouse is gorgeous and truly a one-of-a-kind experience. Sheila and Bob are great hosts and ensured my little getaway was perfect. The cherry on top was sitting by the fire after a long day of hiking.

    There are not enough good things that could be said about this wonderful haven. The treehouse is just like the pictures; absolutely gorgeous and magical. We immediately felt like we had a special retreat. Sheila, Will, Bob, and Chrissy were all such great hosts - they were always available and had great recommendations for things to do, but were happy to give us our space as well. It was the perfect balance. Sheila helped us find a few places that rent canoes, and recommended a wonderful paddle for us to take that was only a five mile drive from the treehouse. We were also able to reach the high peaks region quite easily - it's a bit of a drive, but absolutely worth it to stay at this beautiful property. The location is actually great because it's close enough to town that you can get gas or whatever you need, but far enough away to feel remote. The cookhouse is a total glamping situation. We were able to very easily and happily make our meals on the fire and on the two-burner coleman stove in the cookhouse, and there was everything we needed as far as dishes and whatnot. There's a great little area in the cookhouse for hanging out as well, with some adirondack chairs and a hammock chair. I loved journaling there in the morning, as well as on the deck of the treehouse. This may seem like a strange thing to comment on, but another thing that stuck out was the water from the spigot hose, which was absolutely delicious! It's nice and cold straight out of the hose and so fresh tasting. We loved drinking that and cooking our meals with it. Another lovely thing was the maple syrup - Sheila and Bob had very generously left us a sample, but we had to buy more because it was so good! It was great that they had that available there, at a great price for the quality. I can't recommend this place enough and I am just sad that it will probably be hard to go back because I'm sure it's going to be booked all the time, but we will definitely make it happen somehow because it was amazing.

  • Amazing place & terrific hosts. Very accommodating and helpful with places to see. The treehouse was magical in person and the property was everything as described and more! We’ll definitely be back for a second visit.

    Bob, Sheila, and Chrissy were phenomenal hosts. They took time to welcome us, answer questions, and offer recommendations about the area. They are great with kids and our two, ages 5 and 7, had a wonderful experience.

    The property is beautiful and peaceful and the lean-to felt surprisingly protected and substantial.

    Our family is pretty new to camping and staying in their lean-to was a very good way for a beginner to have a positive experience, especially when camping with kids.

    I highly recommend staying here!

  • 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!

    My six year old said “This is the best camping ever. I wish we brought more food so we could live here.”

    They have thought of everything! We felt so relaxed and welcomed staying at the lean-to. They have everything you need and more little fun touches.

    The lean-this beautifully made, the property is fun and well thought out. The hosts are so friendly and thoughtful!

    Make sure to try their maple syrup too, it is delicious (and that’s from a Canadian!).

    Thanks again. We will be back!

  • Sheila and Bob are the best people you could ever meet in your life. Unfortunately, my wife had an accident during a hike and had to go to the hospital and Sheila was kinda enough to help me get my car and bring it to the hospital which took over 2 hours of her time. I really don't know how I can repay her. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

    As for the place, it's fantastic. It'll blow your mind. We arrived in the evening right before it was getting dark. We prepped for dinner and had a lovely meal with the campfire lit and the beautiful stars above us. There was nothing more you could ask for. It was a perfect night. That's not even the best part. We woke up to a beautiful sunrise. That sunrise was the perfect start to my day. You won't regret staying here. I guarantee it.

    Words can't describe how great Sheila and Bob is. They have all the answers you need for your questions about you trip. Again, I promise you. You will not regret staying here.

  • 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!

    We walked in to a warm, inviting atmosphere of music playing, light snow falling, a personalized note and complimentary maple syrup. The grounds were so well-marked that snowshoeing was easy and beautiful! It’s like paying for a whole, winter experience. Our life went on pause and we left refreshed. Thank you!

  • 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!

    A wonderful experience all the way through. We were greeted by Bob when we arrived late at night and he was kind enough to give us a little tour of the property. They have everything you could need! The treehouse was a dream- such a unique space. The hosts left us a trial of their homemade maple syrup which is to die for!! The bathroom is about 10ft from the treehouse which has a shower with hot water and clean towels. The hosts gave us so many great suggestions to explore around the area and make the most of our experience. We will be recommending to all of our friends and would love to come back! Book without hesitation!!!

  • This charming tree house has everything you need for your upstate getaway. Remote and isolated, we felt safe and secure the entire time thanks to our incredibly knowledgeable hosts. The noise of the nightly rain on the roof was a treat - maple syrup is the best we have ever had - the heated blanket was a wonderful touch for the cold evenings. Fast WiFi and a great selection of books. Gorgeous property in an excellent retreat location. Thank you!
