**NEW - This is our listing for the Treehouse only option. If you’d like to book the treehouse and cabin together, please see our other listing, the Treehouse Cabin Retreat (#56989).

Have you always wanted to stay in a real treehouse, and sleep in the trees? Here is your chance to do so! Built by the Treehouse Guys of DIY Network, this is the real deal! When the wind blows you may feel the treehouse move with the trees. Walk out to the back deck and enjoy relaxing with a birds eye view.

This treehouse is situated on a 4.5 acre property with trails, hammock, games, charcoal grill, fire pit, smoker and detached bathhouse, which you will not share with anyone outside of your small group. The cabin that is nearby is not included in this listing, but will not be rented out while you're staying in the treehouse. This listing is for the treehouse only. Currently we are offering this rental for 1 night stays on weeknights, and 2 night stays on weekends. If you would like to rent both the treehouse and cabin for more space and comfort, please see our other listing #56989, Treehouse Cabin Retreat (https://houfy.com/h/treehousecabinretreat).

The Treehouse has room for 3 to sleep with a small single in the upper loft (great for kids/teens) and a queen bed on the main floor. ***This is a very rustic getaway in the woods... the Treehouse is an actual treehouse... electricity but no water, etc. The treehouse is not insulated so it can get a bit cold if we have a big chill, and you will hear the rain on the metal roof during rainstorms. There are a/c window units and heaters to moderate temperatures, but this is camping, and it's not like being in an insulated house. Additional comforts include a TV with DVD player and plenty of videos, a mini-fridge and microwave, and a kettle with french press for making coffee. We provide one set of linens and bath towels. Guests will need to bring their own dishes, grilling/outdoor cooking supplies, etc. Think camping/glamping but with some essentials and comforts provided.

Our treehouse camping getaway lets you disconnect from your busy lifestyle (there is no wi-fi so you can really unplug!), get back to nature and reconnect with those you love. If you enjoy camping or glamping, you will love the treehouse! Enjoy the peaceful outdoors in a unique getaway! Have a campfire, lounge in the hammock, play outdoor games, explore the trails, take a short drive to explore the area's many natural freshwater springs and parks, or just escape and relax among the trees. You deserve time away to rejuvenate & to just be a kid again! We hope that guests will love this little nature getaway, and choose to visit time and again.

Please note, we don't have Wi-Fi and cell phone reception can be spotty or weak. Disconnecting from screens is one of the things our guests love best! Be sure and scroll through our entire listing, including the rules, to read more about suitability, expectations, etc.

Our pictures show an accurate description of our property, rooms and amenities, but we do occasionally change or replace things like bedding, outdoor furniture, etc. as needed, so some items may vary from what you see in the photos.The rope ladder and fireman's pole that may be shown in past photos on other sites are no longer available due to requirements from our insurance company. We do have other outdoor games for having fun and enjoying nature.

The Florida water is not the best... we have a treatment system and while the water is safe to drink, it may have a slight iron smell or discoloration (you'll notice stains on the sinks, tub, etc.) and if you are picky about water, you may wish to bring a jug or two from home with you.

It’s Florida... there are bugs! Bugs and creatures (you might see snakes, spiders, lizards, caterpillars and other creepy crawlers especially on the trails.) If you're lucky you'll see woodpeckers, owls, fireflies and more! While we do our best to keep bugs (and their webs) out of the cabin and treehouse, you may see one or two, just sweep them out. We highly recommend bug spray for the outdoors too, especially on the trails (along with closed toed shoes).

We truly hope that you enjoy your time here as much as we do. We have some trails throughout the property, behind the cabin, so please feel free to wander, and collect your own fallen firewood, if you would like (please do not cut living trees or shrubs!). Then enjoy a campfire at the fire pit, cook some dinner on the grill or in the huge smoker, listen for the Barred Owls in the woods, make some S’mores and your own vacation memories. You might also see deer, pileated woodpeckers, and the occasional fox!

The Old Town area is small (think "old Florida," no big box stores, shopping malls, or traffic!) but has many outdoor activities to choose from. Manatee Springs State Park, Fanning Springs and Little River Springs are an easy drive away. Boating or fishing the Suwannee River, hiking the Nature Coast Trail, kayaking Hart Springs, or driving down to Suwannee or lovely Cedar Key are all nice outings. There are many more springs such as Ginnie and Ichetucknee, parks, and activities within 45 minutes as well. Check out our Collections (guides) at the bottom of our listing!

The closest market is Old Town Family Market on US-19 in Old Town. There is a Dollar General a couple miles away as well. One of the best places to eat is the Cottage Cafe in Old Town or the Suwannee Belle Landing right on the river, in Fanning Springs. More options can be found in nearby Chiefland. See our guides for more suggestions of restaurants, springs, farms, parks, beaches, etc.

We strive to be eco-friendly at the Treehouse Retreat... please bring re-usable dishes, pick up your trash, and help us to conserve electricity when you leave. Please help preserve our natural environment!

Enjoy a couple days in the woods, getting back to nature, no internet, away from the hustle and bustle for awhile, and relax and unwind among the trees and stars for a bit.
