Welcome to The Treehouse & Cabin Retreat! This rustic cabin & treehouse 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, you will love the Retreat! Enjoy the peaceful outdoors but with the comforts of home. Have a campfire, swing in the hammock, play outdoor games, 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.

There are TWO structures included with this rental - yes, you get both! the 700sf Rustic Cabin, as well as the ~400sf real Treehouse (built by the Treehouse Guys of DIY Network). Between the two is a large fire pit, swings, hammock, picnic tables, grill, smoker and games. Almost 5 acres of woods surrounds the rental!

The Cabin has a full kitchen, 3 beds and a full bathroom... the Treehouse has room for 3 to sleep with a small single in the upper loft. Both have a/c window units and heaters. ***This is a very rustic getaway in the woods... the cabin is cozy and simple, and the Treehouse is an actual treehouse... no water, etc. The treehouse is not insulated so it can get a bit cold if we have a big chill. The cabin has a full bathroom and there is an additional full bathroom outside of the cabin.. nothing fancy but nice, with a newly built outdoor shower that guests absolutely love!

Please note, we don't have Wi-Fi and cell phone reception is spotty. 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.

The rope ladder and fireman's pole that may be shown in past guest photos is no longer available due to requirements from our insurance company. We do have other outdoor games, a hammock, swings, chairs, etc. 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, 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 and Fanning 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, 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... there are utensils, pots and pans, glasses, plates, etc, so no need for anything plastic. We ask that you please pick up your trash and take recyclables with you. 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.
