About Sheila

Hello Folks, We are Andy and Sheila. We live here on the mountain right down the road . The tree house is a six year dream come to life. We bought and retired here with a dream of building a place where we and others could relax and recharge and even play a little. We have been married thirty years and counting. Andy came from Iowa, Sheila (me) was raised only 40 miles from Monteagle. The mountain offered such beauty, we had to be here! We Love It and we believe you will too.

Sheila purchased this studio in 2012

Why Sheila chose East

When we started looking for a place to retire we came to the mountain just sight seeing. It seemed that every time we decided to wander, we ended up right back here. Ultimately, we had a plan to have a place where people can unplug and recharge. Life is so busy, it is nice sometimes to get away from it all. So, we purchased almost eighteen acres here. The treehouse is the first to be built for our plans of a retreat. Ultimately, we want to have a couple of places for people to come and relax and enjoy nature.

What makes this studio unique

We fell in love with the land! Trees fifty feet tall, the valley with the tiny stream. We built our home here first. Andy had the idea of his tree-house, He designed and just finished it. Not just a plain little room but open exposed beams,kind of like the main house. Whimsy bath with a fossil sink, water can shower and rustic style. The open kithcen has the essentials for cooking and and 50's dinette set. Blast from the past is one way of describing it. But, Of course we had to have the comforts of home. The covered porch overlooks the small valley and opposite hillside of the property. Most folks are loving the swing and there is a small dinette. We are only three miles from town, but our location is on a dead end road (paved). We are within a 15-20 minute drive to most of the hiking trails and waterfalls of the area. The tree house is approximately 100 feet off the main road down in the trees. Privacy is given when you visit here.

The home was built to perfection in the most beautiful forest.

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at many VRBO rentals all over the US and Europe . This treehouse ranks on my top 3 experiences. My husband and I took my son to college at Sewanee and stayed at the home for 4 nights. Amazing retreat to reflect on our oldest leaving for college. Thank you! We will be back !

A charming getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cabin - it was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed for a lovely stay. Down to a vegetable peeler. Sheila was a wonderful and gracious host and goes out of her way to provide a perfect experience. The hot tub is an added plus along with all of the lights in the trees above the path to the cabin as well as on the walkway. It was a very whimsical and dreamy set up - which I love! We sat on the porch a lot of the time and it was nice to feel as if we were up in the trees. We will stay here again and we highly recommend it to folks who need a quiet place to rest and rejuvenate. It was not just a place to stay. It was a charming experience.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

My sons { age 10 and 12} were enchanted with the treehouse. We grilled, soaked in the hot tub, read in the hammock chair and roasted marshmallows in the fire pit. The treehouse glows at night with lovely lights.

Tennessee is oppressively hot in July but not this treehouse. It is in the woods and is cool and comfortable even without running the air conditioning. The kitchen was stocked with everything needed for cooking. The hostess was so helpful she sent her nephew over to start our fire when we could not get it to light.

The South Cumberland recreation area is just minutes away. It is one of the best wilderness areas in the Southeast. We hiked to 5 waterfalls in just two and a half days. We swam under the spray and squeeled with the cold. Rock hopping and water falls and this treehouse made for a great mini vacation.If you value nature, simplicity, and charm this is your kind of place.
