If you enjoy hiking, camping and the great outdoors, the Treehouse Chalet is a wonderful vacation destination! Recently renovated with a brand new master suite, this cozy treehouse offers a relaxing home base from which to pursue all of your favorite outdoor activities. It is refined and modern yet completely unpretentious.
With 2 bedrooms and 2 baths, this is an ideal space for couples traveling together or families with children. The Treehouse Chalet is an A-frame home with a private master suite built right below the 'A' structure.
The A-frame boasts an interior of 2x6 tongue-in-groove wooden boards from front-to-back, floor to ceiling. For the steeply pitched roof that means single boards of 20 feet in length! You just have to see it to appreciate it. 700 sq ft + loft (another 100).
Located in the A-frame is:
-- a cozy kitchen with hand crafted cabinet doors featuring handles carved from rhododendron branches collected on the property;
-- a dining counter made from pecan wood harvested from our north Florida back yard —and milled and crafted locally in Balsam, NC;
-- a full bathroom with tub;
-- a living room/seating area with futon sofa, additional seating, tables, bench toy box, flat screen TV, DVD/VCR, and cable modem with wireless router;
-- Jotul wood stove
-- two very unique, ~4-ft high skylight-style windows which cantilever open on a horizontal axis, bringing the sounds of the rushing creek, singing birds and the fresh air to you when you're inside;
-- beautiful pinewood floors;
-- a rustic wooden chandelier to illuminate it all;
-- a loft bedroom overlooking it all the chalet with bright lighting, double bed, high-quality bedding, screened window and window fan for the hotter months;.
The private-entrance master suite, eight steps below the A-frame, features:
-- a huge deck with large picnic table for outdoor meals;
-- large, screened casement windows;
-- double bed with high-quality bedding;
-- accent paneling made from pecan trees harvested from our FL home, milled locally in Balsam, NC;
-- seating area with dresser, and remote-controlled TV;
-- complete bathroom with a new tiled shower featuring shelves made from stone pulled from out of the creek on the property;
-- beautiful pinewood floors,
-- warm, pinewood ceilings
-- inset lighting
-- washer & dryer facilities
-- large closet and shelving area for clothes storage.
Doesn't it sound fantastic inside? But that's not all. You have even more to look forward to outside! We provide an outdoor grill for additional cooking options and by the creek is an outdoor fire pit where you can responsibly enjoy all the hot dogs and s’mores you can fit on a stick -- just like camping! A few fire pit implements such as skewers are provided (but if you want to cook on the campfire, please bring your own camp cookware...we don't provide that...at least not yet!!)
We are happy to share with you our homey family getaway. We hope you will make many wonderful memories at the Treehouse Chalet!
The Treehouse Chalet easily accommodates 4 guests, and can accommodate up to 6 by using the convertible living room sofa.. WE HAVE SET THE OCCUPANCY LIMIT TO SIX GUESTS. Total square feet of 'inside space' is about 750. We have provided a child's air mattress to guests before, so if you need this or a pack-and-play, let us know.
Caveat: Because a) the master suite is separated from the A-Frame frame and b) the loft bedroom is only accessible by ladder, some families with young children might prefer to look for other accommodations. Please call us if you have questions. A child's room monitor is provided for split sleeping arrangements.
The occupancy limit of 6 GUESTS is set not only because we are concerned about your perceived comfort, but because we want to limit wear and tear to the cabin and its systems. it is ***NOT OK*** to book for six guests or fewer and bring nine; We will know, and you will forfeit your security deposit. Bottom line, we reserve the right to refuse rental to parties we deem to be too large for the accommodations.
