Eco-Friendly Tree House Built over Mississippi River, Canada
Description of Glamping Units
This eco-friendly tree house, which is built over the Mississippi River in Lanark County, Canada, sleeps up to eight people and is perfectly suitable for a family with kids or a group of friends. There are two beds on the first floor of the tree house: a single bed and a double bed. There is also a double pull-out couch. The beds in this area of the tree house have spectacular views of the river. Upstairs in the loft, there is a large king-size bed. Linens and towels are provided.
It is decorated entirely with wild game mounts, fish and stuffed fowl, and a 16-foot anaconda skin is also part of the decor. In the kitchen, there is a small oven, a microwave, a hotplate, and a coffeemaker at guests' disposal. There is also a propane barbecue outside for guests to use. In addition, the hosts provide pots and pans, all plates, glasses, cutlery, and more. There are a few spices, salt and pepper, and sugar available, too. Glampers are politely asked to make sure everything in the kitchen clean before departing.
There is hot and cold running water in the kitchen, and the tap water is more than safe to drink. In the bathroom, there is also a sink and composting toilet. Other amenities include a gas fireplace inside the accommodation and a fire pit outside. For the fire pit, guests will have to arrange their own firewood or go walking through the bush to find some.
The main house on the property has free WI-Fi, and there is no password necessary in order to access it. Read More

On site, glampers will find a fridge, a stove, a barbecue, a sink, a composting toilet, and a hot water outdoor shower. The outdoor shower runs off of the hot water tank under the kitchen sink. If guests use up all of the hot water, it takes about 20 minutes to heat the tank up again. Please note—sometimes the water smells a little sulfurous, but it is not harmful in any way.
There is a comfy lounge on the property, and there are loads of board games, books, and DVDs. There are fishing rods at guests' disposal, but glampers will need to provide their own tackle and bait.

Location + Surroundings
This rustic, handmade tree house is built right over the rapids of the mighty Mississippi River in Lanark County, Ontario, Canada. The glamping tree house is nestled among oaks and cedars, 22 feet off of the ground at its highest point. Due to its high concentration in maple trees, Lanark County is also called the 'Maple Syrup Capital of Ontario'. The county is home to over 100 lakes, rivers, and waterfalls, and the coastline is speckled with coves and pristine beaches. The region is a paradise for outdoor fans who like to bike, hike, and engage in adventurous water sports activities, such as rafting, canoeing, kayaking, and more. Read More
- Bird watching
Since the tree house is on the water, most of the activities are aquatic, such as rafting, canoeing, swimming, fishing, and kayaking, etc. The region also offers great trekking trails to explore by bike or foot. There is lots of room for lounging in and around the rapids and it is easy to sit right in the rapids. There are many swings, hammocks and seats all over the site so you can pick your favorite spot to lounge and watch the world pass by.

Pets are welcome; however they should be kept down in the tree house area. Many of the neighbors have pets, so please keep watch of them at all times and be conscious of the other animals that may be around in the area.
There is absolutely no smoking allowed in the tree house. The hosts have provided ashtrays in various areas around the accommodation, and if guests are down by the fire pit, please throw the butts into it.
The hosts ask that guests please leave the tree house in the same condition they found it in, with the exception of the beds. On the day guests leave, please do not make any of the beds that were slept in.
After midnight, please keep noise to a minimum. Small children should be closely supervised at all times. Read More
