    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!

  • The house is well back from the road and completely surrounded by tall pines which you can see from the high windows of the A-frame’s living room. There is a well-developed trail system on the property on which the only other dwelling is the hosts’ residence.

    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!

  • 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.

  • Highly recommended!! Thank you for sharing this awesome getaway with us. One weekend definitely was not enough and looking forward to coming back soon. Chrissy was so helpful at giving us the tour for the property. Shiela and Denali came to see how we were at night and she was great. Thank you for giving us tips around the area. Mountain Azure was worth the climb. Also, she showed us how the stars look during the dark and we saw a SHOOTING STAR just in time! it was such an awesome experience. Thank you so much this great place for a quick getaway from our city life.

    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!

    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! :)))

  • Sheila and Bob's tree house was a amazing experience. The scenery and property both go beyond our exceptions, a must see is the eldest pine it was astonishing. Bob and sheila both offered loads of options for us to do and see both on their property and off. There was no amenity that was lacking, it actually surprised us with how well stocked everything was for a trip to the woods, when she says you don't need to bring anything but food she really means it. Its very centrally located to the bigger tourist towns while still feeling secluded. Its a trip i would recommend to anyone who wants to be apart of nature and to get away without having to truly "rough it". It's half camp it's half glamp all fun!

    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.

  • We had a great stay and I definitely recommend asking for local recommendations! Wifi was great, but there's not service for a 15 minute drive in either direction, so be sure to know where you're going before heading out for the day. Definitely more than just a place to crash at night and there's everything you'll need already there for you.

    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 !!!
