"The Treehouse was a wonderful place to stay. There were 6 of us that stayed there. The house was furnished with everything we needed and even some extras. The deck is very nice to sit out on in the evening. Access to the lake was just a few feet away with a private cove on the property where my boys fished, swam and went out in the paddle boat. The host were extremely nice and kind. We were there the weekend of July 4th, They provided a wonderful fireworks show and allowed my boys to participate with them. We will definetly be back next year! Thank you for sharing The Treehouse with us!"
Jul 06, 2012 - Laura Coronado "Five family members plus myself enjoyed a 3 night mini vacation in the tree house. It is fully equiped and very comfortable. We loved the scenic front deck for relaxing, bar-b-ques. My 4 yr old grandson even enjoyed a swim in his blow up pool on the deck. The back yard leading to the shoreline was very well maintained. A relaxing private area as well. Thanks to our host and hostess for making this a very enjoyable trip."
