This cozy treehouse evokes vintage charm and is ready-made for a fun family vacation, a gathering of friends, a group retreat, or a creative place to write a book. With an upstairs game room (which boasts a foosball table and an Xbox player), tranquil forest views, and a private grill, this home has everything you need for a snowy day indoors or can offer the perfect home base to warm up after a long day of outdoor activities.
Go wine tasting in Murphys or skiing at Bear Valley Ski Resort. Big Trees State Park is a wonderful location to bring the whole family for hiking and great photo opportunities with some of California's largest trees. Go for a hike, then enjoy hot chocolate (in the wintertime) or ice cream (during the summer time) served at the Warming Hut during business hours. Big Trees Market is also nearby and is fully stocked. Visit the towns of Columbia State Park, where you can take a stagecoach ride, or nearby Vallecito, and explore the Moaning Caverns. You will also have access to Blue Lake Springs Recreation Center (fees apply).
Things to know:
Full kitchen (with a dishwasher)
Chemex coffee maker
Cell phone reception is very spotty in this area, so please plan accordingly
There is an additional fee for shared amenities
Firewood is available during the winter (first come, first served - guests will have to bring in firewood from the patio area or from the ground level). There is also firewood available at Big Trees Market for purchase.
Central air and heat (with fans also available in the loft area)
Parking is available for two cars (or more down the hill during the spring/summer months). Being a house on a hill, there is an upslope to reach the home; four-wheel drive and/or chains are recommended when it snows.
We hope you enjoy your stay at this cozy, comfortable treehouse.
