Located in a private setting amongst native hardwoods and pines, the treehouse is a round, two-story, very private retreat in the woods. Is it a real treehouse? Does it sway? To answer these questions first, it is a house which was built with a tree through the center to which supporting beams were attached. Years ago, there were trees growing through the porch. Built 25 or so years ago by master craftsmen of lumber that was milled on site, this is truly a unique place. Filled with wooden cabinets and stained glass, this house is a jewel situated deep in the woods. There are no close neighbors. This is an ideal place for a private, restful vacation, honeymoon, or romantic getaway. There are two buildings on the property; the treehouse and the outbuilding (seen from the porch photo). The outbuilding is used for storage (is NOT a residence) and there is a neat little porch with a swing, just right for visiting couples.
If you like porches, the treehouse has the grandest of all. Because the house is round, a circular screened-in porch surrounds the circumference of the treehouse. The porch serves as an extended living room and there are dining tables constructed atop the old tree trunks so you can eat outside. The second story features a small deck, just outside the master bedroom. Sit on the deck, pluck a guitar, and enjoy the beautiful serenity of the woods from above.
The first floor of the treehouse consists of the screened porch, kitchen, dining area, living room, sleeping area, and full bath with a clawfoot tub and separate shower. The second story is the master bedroom suite, guest bedroom, hall, half bath, and deck. The master bedroom has sixteen tall narrow windows. The view of the boughs of the trees is spectacular. The floors are wide pine planks, and all of the cabinets contain leaded and stained glass embellishments. The kitchen has ample storage space. There are plenty of dishes, cookware, glasses, party glasses, etc. There is a butcher block with drawers and a beautiful island (with stove top) constructed of cedar and black walnut. Just for fun, there are twelve five-inch deck prisms in the 2nd story floor, which help illuminate the kitchen below. They are beautiful jewels downstairs in the daytime, and glowing upstairs at nighttime.
Located at the end of a sandy trail, here you can take the time to enjoy nature - birds, owls, frogs and crickets, deer, and perhaps an occasional bobcat. Camden, the closest town, is about ten minutes away. Here you will find an Arts Center, restored Revolutionary War battleground and historic buildings, locally owned restaurants, grocery stores, bakeries, and antique stores galore. Lake Wateree is about 25 minutes away. There are golf courses, canoe trails, and other interesting sites in the area. The local state park (located about five miles from the house) offers daily canoe and kayak rentals for a very reasonable rate.
Regarding reservations, we are sorry, but we cannot 'hold' a reservation by giving you 'first refusal.' We receive many inquiries, and it's simply too confusing and we do not want anyone to be disappointed. A deposit is required to reserve the property. We do not have 'set' check-in and check-out times. If there are no renters before and after you, you can check in and out whenever you'd like to.
If you want to get away from it all, do some painting, write some poetry, catch up on reading, or simply enjoy quiet, peaceful, beautiful surroundings, the treehouse is a wonderful place to do all of that.
If you want to escape from the brutal winter weather, are longing to go to the tropics, but can't make it that far, consider South Carolina for very nice alternative. If you visit during the Christmas season, you will find the house decorated with a live Christmas tree and fresh greens. For parents and friends visiting students at Coker College, Hartsville is only twenty minutes away.
If, on the other hand, you simply MUST go to the tropics, please look at our other property located in Eleuthera, Bahamas - Seaglass Cottage (Listing number 15017).

We spent 7 days at the treehouse and enjoyed every minute, the seclusion was spectacular and just what we needed. We found it easily and were quite stunned when we drove down the sand track with the directions provided by the owner, the house is awesome, I have never seen a round treehouse and it is quite the site, we actually stared like fools. It was better than the photos and so quite you could hear pinecones falling in the surrounding woods, and not another structure to be seen. Inside was very clean (and i'm picky about that) you have all the comforts you could need or want for and there are beautiful stained glass windows, a personal favorite of mine. There is a screened porch around the whole house (which is of course round) and sitting outside anytime, day or night, is fantastic. If you want to get away from it all and relax this is the place to do that, also many places to visit that you may see nowhere else. We drove around to see the sites, the state park just down the road is beautiful, you can fish there or take a nature walk and we ran into the park ranger who was more than happy to chat and answer all our questions, there is even a canoe/kayak trail and mangrove trees to explore. We tried several restaurants which are not fancy but have really good home cooked southern food and they are very welcoming and love to see you eat, try the buffets for some great variety! To name just a few restaurants we enjoyed were the Hard Times Cafe in Cassatt and Smokin & Grillin in Camden, both with great buffets. We also tried the Waffle House in Bishopville and they had one of the best breakfast steaks I have ever had. I would recommend this to anyone who either wants to get away and relax in beautiful surroundings (perfect for couples who need to regroup and have a romantic getaway) or also to get out and see the different sites and nearby towns for the history of the area. This was the most relaxing trip, either to stay at the treehouse and cook in or get out and explore, which we did both. The house is very comfortable and up tp date with all the ammenities but also has a back woods flair with the decor that takes you back to simpler times and helps you to relax away from the stress of your every day life. Thank you, Laura & Birdie for sharing with us and we will gladly answer any questions to others.

We highly recommend the Treehouse as a relaxing getaway. The pictures on line looked real nice, but once you drive down this 1/4 mile dirt road and into the Treehouse property, the relaxation mode just hits. The entire Treehouse is surrounded by a screened in porch with doorways to enter at different locations. The books, nic nacs, decorations and quietness add to the ambiance of this place. The master bedroom is magnificant with long windows all around and a balcony. The stars from the balcony are so bright, without the competing city lights. There is nothing to do but relax, watch TV or DVD (yes there is a DVD player). There is a fully equipped kitchen including a diswasher and even a washer and dryer in the house. There is a state park about 5 miles down the road if you do want some activity. I highly recommend the Treehouse and can't wait to go back. Laura & Birdie - thank you for sharing this beautiful home.

About the owner: My husband and I enjoy restoration projects. The treehouse looked like a place that would keep us busy for a number of years. Having restored several other houses, we weren't intimidated by the condition of the treehouse, even though it needed a lot of work. We spent many productive weekends working from sunup 'til sundown; then enjoying the wonderful screened in porch in the evenings. There are so many interesting sounds in the forest, and they change as the seasons do. The treehouse is a peaceful and enjoyable place to visit!
Why the Owner Chose Camden:
South Carolina is divided into several regions. The treehouse is located in the sandhills part of the state. Although it's an hour's drive from the ocean, you can find seashells and shark's teeth along the sandy roads and trails. The pine forests are lovely and the hardwoods are magnificent. We like this part of the state because it has rolling hills - unlike the coastal plain where our home is. Camden, the closest town is famous for its horse races and other equestrian events. It is filled with charming antique shops, historic places to visit, and restaurants.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
When we visit the treehouse, we don't want to leave the house to go anywhere! The woods are beautiful so we spend a lot of time on the upper deck (off the master bedroom) watching birds and squirrels. The house has a great floor plan (round houses are very efficient!) so it's easy and enjoyable to prepare meals and then dine on one of the three tables we built on the screened in porch. The house is comfortable and furnished with everything you need for a cozy weekend in the woods. On moonless nights, the stars are fantastic!
