Treehouse | North Carolina

This primitive off-grid 100% sustainable treehouse located on 23 private wooded acres in WNC, is perfect for outdoor enthusiasts, adventure seekers, nature lovers, and hopeless romantics + dog parents! If the long-range mountain views weren’t enough already…the treehouse is powered by solar, heated with the cutest tiny wood stove, water collected right from the mountain, exhilarating outdoor shower, and the coolest home biogas toilet with a view!
The treehouse is located on 23 private acres in Canton, NC, right on the Waynesville, NC border, just west of Asheville. The elevation is 3100 and climbs to 3700 to the top of the ridge the property goes up to, and the property is all sloped. There are a few nature trails started, with plans to add more. Down the street is the Ten Acre Farm which sells produce they grow and has yummy homemade pizza & donuts on most Saturdays, and Jukebox Junction is a vintage diner also down the road. Waynesville is super close and is the quintessential Hallmark mountain town with amazing shops, restaurants, breweries, and everything you need for your stay.

We wanted the treehouse to feel a little more romantic and thoughtful than your typical off-grid getaway...Let's face it, you don't think "glamourous" when you hear the words "off-grid". Well, we want to change that! We put a lot of thought and design into making the treehouse feel cozy, magical, and plush, but also focusing on earth-friendly and sustainable materials! Every single thing in the treehouse is there with purpose, and mostly that is because it's either sustainably made, environmentally friendly, or made from wood from the property itself. Each item has a story. We wanted folks to see that things they use every day at home, could be more sustainably made and less wasteful.

The treehouse has an organic Queen mattress and pillows from Happy Sleep that are sustainably made. 100% organic cotton luxurious bedding from Seeds Concept imported from Portugal, in addition to their plushy towels! The kitchen countertop, fireplace mantle, interior walls, pantry doors, exterior walls, bar stools, and cedar rocking chairs, are all made from local wood or wood right from our property.

The ceiling, bed drawers, pantry door frame, and headboard are all made from centuries-old barn wood from our neighbor's barn she let us salvage. She's the one with the donkey, Molly, and the large pasture of cows you pass coming in.

We use environmentally friendly cleaning products, soaps, as well as sustainably made toilet paper and paper towels, and Ecologie reusable paper towels.

Guests must agree and e-sign to our rental agreement upon booking in order to stay at the treehouse.

WINTER BOOKINGS: Our driveway may be impassible during winter weather and we recommend snow tires, snow chains, and/or 4x4 during the winter months due to ice. We do shut down the running water during the winter to prevent the pipes from freezing. We will provide guests with 5-gallon drinking jugs with a dispenser to use, and the toilet still has water to flush. But the shower, sink, tub, hose, and bidet will be shut down during these months. If you want the true off-grid experience this is it ;)

Location
The treehouse is located on 23 private acres in Canton, NC, right on the Waynesville, NC border, just west of Asheville. The elevation is 3100 and climbs to 3700 to the top of the ridge the property goes up to, and the property is all sloped. There are a few nature trails started, with plans to add more. Down the street is the Ten Acre Farm which sells produce they grow and has yummy homemade pizza & donuts on most Saturdays, and Jukebox Junction is a vintage diner also down the road. Waynesville is super close and is the quintessential Hallmark mountain town with amazing shops, restaurants, breweries, and everything you need for your stay.

Enjoy hiking? Well, perfect because there are hundreds of trails nearby because the treehouse is equidistant to not 1, not 2, but 3 Blue Ridge Parkway entrances and is in the Pisgah National Forest. The highest point along the entire route of the Blue Ridge Parkway is located near us as well at Richland Balsam. In addition, the treehouse is on a scenic byway that connects to another scenic byway. That makes the drive just breathtaking, going by farms and forests and running along the Pigeon River which also offers tubing and amazing fly fishing. If that's not enough we are close to Asheville, Maggie Valley, Hendersonville, and Brevard.

But the treehouse is also perfect if you don't want to see another person, or do anything at all...just relax! It is pretty secluded and tucked away. We made it so you don't have to go anywhere or see anyone if you don't want to.

Kitchenette
The kitchen has a 2 propane burner cooktop, and a beautiful copper sink from Sinkology for most of your cooking needs. There is a fold-down dish drying rack to clean dishes, and we provide the dishes as well. There are pots and pans for cooking, kitchen knives, and a teapot for hot water. There's a pour-over coffee maker and filters. We also provide a Rugged Road Cooler to keep your food items and drinks cool for your stay, all you need is ice! There is also an outdoor grill. Everything you need to make a yummy off-grid meal!

The Nitty Gritty
We built this beauty with our own blood, sweat, and tears to be the perfect vacation spot for us and our dogs. But so many friends and acquaintances grew interested in it, so we decided to share it with other folks like us! But there will be wildlife, bugs, a steep hill to walk up and carry your belongings + stairs, and it is off-grid and rural, so it's not for everyone! If you have some physical limitations, can't live without a hairdryer or internet, or handle a bug and its friends, it's not for you...also, check out our F.A.Q section for more insight...

We only have 2 direct neighbors, you pass them as you enter our driveway. They are about .25 miles from the treehouse itself so it's very private. The view is towards the National Forest so you will barely see any houses if at all unless it's in the wintertime when foliage is less dense. But because we overlook a valley, sound does echo, so you may hear folks occasionally. You are in the country and woods so you will hear roosters, gunshots, lawnmowers, our neighbor's donkey, dogs, and livestock. But also a lot of wildlife; owls, coyotes, birds, squirrels, and sometimes things you haven't heard before...

The solar works perfectly for lights, charging cell phones or small electronics, our water pump, and UV light to sanitize our spring water, but it cannot handle anything larger than that. PLEASE NO HAIR DRYERS OR SIMILAR APPLIANCES.

The home biogas toilet works like a marine toilet, it flushes but with a hand pump. It pumps into a giant composting septic bladder bag, that composts human and organic waste, then captures methane gas that compost creates, which can be used later for cooking or heating gas. IT SOUNDS WEIRD WE KNOW! Cooking with your poop! But it is an amazing complete system with no waste. For the toilet, we provide a bidet as well to rinse because toilet paper cannot be flushed as it doesn't break down in the bladder. There is a diaper genie trashcan, which you can throw your toilet paper into. You rinse with a bidet and dry your tush with a little tp, throw it away, and easy peasy. If I can do anyone can! I am as girly as girly girls come. You've got this.

Our water comes from 2 sources. A freshwater mountain spring is located on our property that we have piped into our 500-gallon water catchment containers. And also our gutter system that funnels into the same containers. We then have a water filtration system under the house that cleans the water of particles and taste, and a UV light that kills any bacteria in the water. The water is then safe to use. We do shut down the running water during the winter to prevent the pipes from freezing. We will provide guests with 5-gallon drinking jugs with a dispenser to use, and the toilet still has water to flush. However, the bidet, shower, and tub will not be running in the winter. Which most folks wouldn’t be taking an outdoor shower in the winter anyway! We highly suggest the Scrubbz bathing wipes, and glampers love them and so do we!

Wildlife
We definitely have some wildlife since we have 23 acres of raw woodlands and are surrounded by miles and miles of the wooded areas of Cold Mountain Game Lands, Pisgah National Forest, and the Blue Ridge Parkway. We have personally seen at the treehouse; white-tailed deer, black bears, coyotes, bobcats, owls, squirrels, chipmunks, gophers, raccoons, possums, and so many birds!

With that in mind, please take safety seriously! If you own a gun, please feel free to bring it for protection! If not, you can get the bear spray, or a fog horn, if wildlife makes you uneasy. It is important to put up your food and trash! We cannot emphasize this enough. We provide a cooler for your food to seal up inside the treehouse or in your car. And we have a large trash bin down the hill by the parking that locks to deter bears. We also encourage guests to take their trash to the local dump 5 minutes away if their trash is stinky or building up. Just be cautious of your surroundings, and make your presence known.

Be kind to the environment and take care of the surroundings.
