About Rik Sassa
A stone mason and carpenter for a quarter of a century, waiting for this exact time to put those skills to use and do what I have always wanted, create structures that are natural and artistic, whimsical and functional and try to fit into their setting rather than stand apart from them. I am eager to offer an alternative vision of what life could be like being more connected with nature and more playful about life.
Why Rik Sassa chose West Pawlet
The property is perfect in that it offers a wonderful combination of old woods and fields, stepped multilevel terrain and occasional rock outcropping that shows the bones of what is going on under the soil. Mostly hardwoods of various types, lots of old Maples for wonderful color in the Fall.
What makes this Bungalow unique
Where else are you going to find a treehouse that is easy to get to, that doesn't have ladders or lots of stairs to access and has all the essentials to make a stay enjoyable, relaxing, and affordable. A real treehouse, one that reflects the nature in and around it, rather than a house or shed raised up into the trees or on stilts.

The treehouse was all I expected and more! Rik did such an amazing job on this place and so much detail went into this. Everything was done just right and truly gave us an experience we will never forget. Rik was an evening excellent host...explaining everything at the treehouse to us along with drawing us out a map to the grocery store and places to eat. We would definitely stay again!
Great time at the treehouse
We had a great time "going off the grid" for 2 days and hanging out in the treehouse. We were so impressed with the work and craftsmanship that went into the place. If you're looking to unplug and unwind this is a great place to do it. If you're looking for fancy amenities and easy connections to the outside world, this isn't the place for you. It was exactly what we expected and we enjoyed it.
Really nice get-a-way
The tree house is really cool. Rik did an awesome job creating it.
I loved how everything is very "earth friendly". It's a very nice, secluded, unique place to stay. The only things to make it better would be hot shower and flush toilet.
Rik was very easy to work with . I admire his talents.
It's a "Memory Maker!" We had a fantastic time! Thank you so much for creating such a wonderful place to make memories together... Still grinnin'!
Loved this place
I gave five stars because I loved the uniqueness, natural beauty and serene location. Sitting by the fire, birds chirping and opening my eyes perched up high looking out of my window straight into the forest enjoying the workmanship of a house built into a tree is great. If you are looking for a Marriott type property then don’t stay as you might not like the lack of hot water and no flushable toilet.
