This property boasts three tree houses, strategically placed, to give guests privacy but, that are close enough, that they can rent out all three.
What makes the Aliyah unique is that the snuggle palace is 30-feet high and is the tallest tree house. It’s great for families that like to spread out. In the main cabin there is a full-size bed and across the swinging bridge is a bunk bed with a twin and a full-size bed.
The hickory is unique in that it has a play ground, consisting of a slide, a swing, and two hammocks. It has a cozy nook with lots of games. This tree house is best for two adults and four kids that want to be in the same room at bed time.
The Pete is unique and has a wood-burning stove. It has the biggest floor plan with lots of open space with an over sized loft with a king-size bed. Best suited for Pete Nelson tree house lovers and a couple with two small kids.
