Serene & Secluded 2-Story Home w/Covered Porch, Firepit, Gas Grill, Telescope

Experience a truly unforgettable stay at this secluded and private retreat in the woods! The Treehouse is mostly bordered by the Nantahala National Forest–You're not able to see any neighbors, except in the winter when the trees are bare you can barely see two neighbors' rooftops. This is the perfect retreat for families and friends. You will love relaxing in the swing on the covered porch with a steamy cup of coffee in the mornings or a thrilling novel with a glass of wine in the afternoon. The firepit, another great gathering spot, offers the opportunity to hang out with your loved ones and tell fun or scary stories while listening to the creek below and looking at the mountain view.

Inside this darling home, you will find an inviting, beautifully decorated, comfortable open great room with a large window with a view of the mountains. The walls and ceiling are knotty pine and soar 16 feet high for that wonderful lodge feel. There is a large leather sofa and two swivel rockers for relaxing while watching the 55' flatscreen TV with cable. The kitchen is well appointed with all you need to make meals for the whole family, granite countertops, microwave, dishwasher, glass-top stove, convection oven, and antler chandelier. There is a Keurig coffee maker that will brew a 12 cup pot or individual pods. The kitchen and dining areas are finished off with three barstools and a dining table under another antler chandelier, that will seat six to eight people. Also on the first floor is a sleeping porch with a wall of windows looking towards the view with two beds, a large primary bedroom, and a full bathroom. Upstairs you will find a second bedroom with an en-suite bathroom.

Love, Love, Love this place!!! Seclusion without being remote. So, so clean and over the top inviting!!!

The Treehouse is amazingly peaceful!! It’s situated right on the mountain in the middle of the national forest. The amenities are plentiful and the beds are comfortable. The view is amazing and the steps going down to the creek in the middle of the mountain is so serene!!! Make sure to go Gem Mining at Sheffield Mine!

Was disappointed that we couldn’t open windows due to the spiders and bugs living inside the screens. Also no gas in the gas grill and kitchen light and ceiling fan did not work. Otherwise a nice stay.

Loved the quiet. Great use of space. My kids enjoyed the creek. It’s a great space to just be.

The home is very beautiful, comfortable and secluded with everything you need for a great stay. The furnished covered porch is my favorite place. But enjoyed looking at the stars on the furnished uncovered deck. The firepit was nice as well

The scenery, the house it self is beautiful! They have everything you need for your stay! The only downside is the wi-fi. I could not do any work, check emails or anything. The wi-fi worked for a few minutes first thing in the morning and then nothing.
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us, Rhonda. We are so glad you enjoyed this beautiful home. We are so sorry the wifi was not working properly during your visit. We have received no previous reports of that issue, but we appreciate you bringing it to our attention so we can investigate it further. Thank you for letting us know there is room for improvement and we hope to host you again soon.

The Treehouse was a gift this holiday season that just kept on giving! The property is situated in a beautiful grove of trees and is aptly named. Just walking inside, we got a cozy feeling with furnishings and decor reflecting alot of thought and detail. The icing on the cake was what appeared to be a professionally decorated Christmas tree and decorations throughout. A fully equipped kitchen yielded a much welcomed coffee nook with a variety of coffee pods. Comfortable beds, bathrooms with all essentials and cable television were great ammenities. Morning coffee on a well furnished covered porch was the perfect way to start the day. A glass of wine around the firepit topped our evening after an amazing meal at the Dillard House (must go!) I can't wait to return this spring as the Treehouse is surrounded by rhododendrons. I highly rrcommend this rental!

This place was wonderful! From the huge windows overlooking panoramic mountain view’s to the wonderful shops and restaurants around the area it was just magical. Would love to go back in spring when the Rhododendrons and Mt. Laurels are in bloom. The house had a real mountain cabin feel with the decorations, the layout and, of course, the views!!

The Treehouse was perfect for us! The kitchen had all the cookware we needed and we used the grill every night. The master bedroom was very comfortable and we always had a great nights sleep! The rain shower in the downstairs bathroom felt amazing after a long day of hiking! The folks at Vacasa were very attentive and prompt to answer any of our issues that we encountered. Highly recommend!

Exactly as advertised. This was a perfect site for our weekend getaway into the mountains.
