  • 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!

    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!

  • My friend and I drove to the Adirondacks for a snowy NYE in the treetops. Sheila was very helpful and clear ahead of time with information about the space that might prove a deterrent for non-adventurous folks in winter (not heated except for a small space heater; bathroom/shower and cookhouse a short distance from the living space).

    We brought all our layers, and while we were still very, very cold (until we got in the cozy bed with a heated mattress pad!), the beauty and the magic of the space were well worth any chilly night. Lovely and well-kept trails around the property, a sugarhouse, a lean-to, and many more things.

    It really has to be seen to be experienced fully. One of our favorite things was the photo album of how the treehouse was built. Also seeing the string lights reflected in the trees outside, like a wide net of stars. We were only there for one night, but all our friends are already asking where this magical place was and how to get there ASAP. Don’t miss the chance, if you’ve got it!

    The treehouse was a wonderful experience for my wife and I. We were at the very end of our road trip and wanted something special at the Adirondacks and the treehouse is a highlight. The place is clean and comfortable. Although there were along of bugs and mosquitos outside, we did not have bug trouble while inside the treehouse. The bathroom is closely located and the cookhouse is well-equipped. I would recommend to visitors to have this unique experience whenever they visit the Adirondacks

  • 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 !!!

    This place was serene and majestic, my partner and I spent our anniversary here and it was everything we could have asked for. The hosts are all very friendly and gracious! We loved their cute pup Denali and the atmosphere was peaceful and welcoming. Thanks again!

  • This place was the most magical place and a nice area to come to if you want to be surrounded by nature. Shelia, Bob, and Chrissy were accommodating and were helpful when it came to giving different ideas about what to do and where to eat in the area.

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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!

    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.

  • We arrived at night and we could see the treehouse coming up the driveway and could already tell it was going to exceed our expectations. From the second we arrived, Sheila and her husband Bob were the most gracious hosts. They toured us around the campgrounds to show us where everything was and believe me when I say they provide literally everything you need except for food. Everything was very well cleaned and prepared and Sheila and Bob are very knowledgeable about what to do in the area and just overall great people to talk with. We will definitely be coming back to stay again
