Nice quiet place to get away!

  • 5 of 5

I decided to rent this as a get away for the night. We had lots of snow and Mother Nature decided to warm up so the walk to our tree house was a bit slick and muddy. I packed a picnic and off we went. It was very easy to find. We left our stuff and went for a hike around the property. Like I said it was damp but a nice place. Would love to come back in the summer and enjoy the fire pit. We stayed in the whitetail treehouse. Plenty of space for the two of us. Enjoyed our meal. I am scared of Heights. Was a little worried about the loft but I did just fine. We actually slept with the windows open around the bed. Was a beautiful night. Very peaceful and relaxing. We could see the goats from our back deck. We arrived before Bob got home and we didn’t see the dogs but we never needed anything. It would of been nice to talk to him and get the story behind his ideas of the treehouses. Like I said it was a snow melting mud mess and no need to get out in it. Remember when renting this you are in the woods, you will walk up small hill to get where you need to go and mother nature plays a part in your hike. We were plenty warm enough and had what we needed. Thank you Bob for allowing us to rent your treehouse. I am sure we will come again!

Step off the grid for some R&R and a unique experience

  • 5 of 5

I gave my daughters, ages 12 and 15 an experience gift for Christmas this year. We got to spend two nights in Whitetail during our Christmas break. We have been fascinated with Tiny Houses and wanted to have a chance to see what living in one would be like for a couple days. It was cute and cozy. Although it was cold, with temps in teens and single digits, the space heater and electric fireplace provided sufficient heat for us. We loved walking the trails on the property. The bridges that went across the creek were so much fun! Bob Hopp was very helpful to us. We appreciate his help and prompt reply to our texts. We enjoyed several delicious meals at The Hamilton Family Restaurant. Reasonable prices, a huge variety on the menu, and delicious food. We made great memories here and hope to return again!

We loved the Whitetail Cabin.

  • 4 of 5

Bob(owner) , Paris, and London(dogs) were great hosts. The Cabin was unique because of the compost toilet and outdoor shower. My husband and I enjoy getting out of our comfort zone, so this was perfect for us. We would love to come back and spend a weekend it the captains quarters and the new cabin.

Charming, comfortable get-away!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect setting for a much-needed get-away. Serene, quiet setting surrounded by nature tucked cozily into a darling tree house.
