About Joyce LaVoie

My dream to own a tree house now includes my desire to share it with others. I enjoy meeting people, especially those guests who bring their grandchildren. We share a fire on our patio, serving the best S'mores! My unique story of how it came to be is shared, along with the visits from CBS Nightly news and Jason Davis, On the Road...Unusual places to stay.

Joyce LaVoie purchased this cabin in 2003

Why Joyce LaVoie chose Long Prairie

Our tree house lets you experience the quiet of nature, wild flowers and wild life. We have a variety of books, games and stories we share with our visitors. That special bottle of wine, when empty, gets a reserved spot in the outhouse decor. Along with a special cork placement

What makes this cabin unique

Your trip Up North takes only two and a half hours from the metro area, is easy to find and offers unique Amish shops, antique shops, and local Mennonite grocery and meat selections of the finest around.

Your free 'Go Out on A Limb' t-shirt allows you to share that you stayed overnight in a tree house. It's crazy where they show up.

Staying in the tree house has been on my list for a couple years. It's unique and fun, but very much like camping. Getting up in the middle of the night to pee in a pot as apposed to walking to the outhouse was an experience. The tree house itself is beautiful and reminds me of a cabin up north. It was super cold but I had a pile of quilts and comforters to keep me warm. The breakfast in the morning was wonderful and made with TLC.

Great way to bond with 3 teenage granddaughters

  • 4 of 5

Loved Joyce & found Richard "interesting". The girls really enjoyed the home-made zip-line & got this 75 year old grandma to go on it 4 times. The 1 electric cord shorted out on us a # of times & we had to "find" the reset button. Four people is about the limit for that size of tree house.

Enjoyed the tasty breakfast & all the fixings for our smores the night before.

Disappointed in VRBO - some of their information about the treehouse we inaccurate!!

Great location and hospitality. A wonderful weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we arrived, Joyce made us feel right at home. The treehouse was very cozy and even my teenagers found it interesting. We loved the breakfast provided; and Richard was kind enough to take us canoeing down the river. My daughter loved seeing their horse and the view was beautiful. They also had a homemade Zipline that the kids enjoyed, an old time swing and hammock. The treehouse was secluded in the woods and we even were visited by a family of racoons. I would definitely recommend this beautiful place and we hope to visit again!
