This serene and rustic tree house is located in the middle of a forest in Grantsville, Maryland. It is a few minutes away from Savage River State Forest, and less than half an hour away from Deep Creek Lake and Big Savage Mountain. The tree house can accommodate up to five guests, perfect for couples and families looking for a unique outdoor retreat. In the master bedroom, couples can fall asleep to the sound of raindrops hitting the metal roof on the plush double bed. Kids can sleep on the twin-over-double bunk bed in the upstairs loft. Soft, high-quality linens are provided for all the beds. After a long day of hiking through the forest or swimming in the lake, guests can rinse off in the shower in the full bathroom. The bathroom also includes a toilet, a sink, and a set of fresh towels.

The tree house is infused with a cozy, warm ambiance thanks to its barn wood detailing, copper seam metal roof, and Amish-handmade hickory bark furniture. When guests arrive, they will find a snug living room with two comfortable couches. The living room flows into a fully-equipped kitchen and dining area. The kitchen comes with a mini-fridge, a microwave, a toaster, and a coffeemaker. Dishes and cooking utensils are provided. The breakfast bar can seat up to four guests, and they can eat meals as they watch birds or squirrels flit between the soaring pines trees outside, beneath the warm glow of a chandelier with vintage bulb glass jar lighting.

Outside, there is a wraparound and partially-shaded deck. Guests can sit back on the nice patio furniture, breathe in the fresh pine air, and take in the views of the majestic woodlands surrounding the tree house. The deck is the perfect place to watch birds and view wildlife, to just simply relax after a long day of outdoor adventure. Below the tree house is a private lounge area with a hanging swing and a fire pit. Here, guests can roast marshmallows for s'mores, curl up with a good book, or gaze at the stars between the canopy of evergreens.
