Please take note*** If you love Wildlife and do not mind critters. The tree house is in the middle of the woods you may encounter mice, wasp, bees, ticks, deer, turkey, flies, ants, water bugs, hear coyotes, and owls especially out on the trails. THIS IS THEIR HOME! We ask that you be a person that respects wildlife. If interaction with bugs, insects, animals and nature is disheartening to you we do not recommend this tree house experience for you. Please do not book this tree house and then call us when you see a wasp, bee, find a tick or other things you find in nature. We have used natural deterrents that really work to keep critters out of the tree house. Since part of the adventure are the famous barn doors that open to the outside occasionally one may sneak in. We recommend not leaving the barn doors open when you leave the tree house for a hike or overnight since flying insects love the tree house.

The Tree house is our dream come true. I wanted a treehouse since I was 10 years old. I believed it would bring me peace. I would play in the woods with my siblings imagining this treehouse it with small branches, using rocks as our furniture and moss as our carpet. I never let go of having this space and thought about it often.
When Bill and I started our dream company EarthJOY Tree adventures in 2007. Whereas we take clients to the top of trees on ropes. As part of this venture we wanted to give them another experience. Why not be able to stay in a treehouse too??
We set off to take Pete Nelsons LEARN HOW TO BUILD A TREEHOUSE in 2009 workshop.
After the workshop we looked high and low for the perfect property to have this dream come true. We ran into many obstacles one being not able to afford it or not the right trees.
When we saw Pete on Animal planet I thought I would just apply for the fun of it. We didn't even have a place. When they called and accepted our application I called Dad. I asked him if we could build a treehouse on his 200 acre farm. He laughed and then said YES! He said he was tired of running two farms and his dream of having a huge cattle farm would just have to be turned into building a few treehouses.
Animal Planet wanted to share this story and hence our episode is famous and called "THE KENTUCKY CLIMBERS COTTAGE" After two years they still air it on Treehouse Masters/AP.
December of 2014 marks the year my childhood dream finally came true. Not only do I mark off time to enjoy my treehouse myself.. I also set aside time for my Womens workshops and our treeclimbing clients. They not only have an incredible experience via a guided tree climb they also get the full immersion of being held by 10 trees in a TREEHOUSE!
Over and over again we heard how the magic of the treehouse totally rejuvenated stressed souls so last year we decided to open it up to others and put it on air b&b
The adventure begins on the journey to the treehouse. As you wind your way through the beautiful back roads you can stop over at Augusta for a romantic dinner and a walk along the Ohio River.
The treehouse is secluded and tucked in the woods so you feel like you are off the grid. It has a propane grill inside for simple meals and a gas grill outside for more elaborate meals.
