What a wonderful retreat in a breathe-takingly beautiful area! Our family of six (4 young children) stayed in the larger of the cabins and it was perfect. Our kids ran freely outside and loved the cabin in the evenings. Marty and Elizabeth, and their son, were gracious hosts. They teach archery and gave a lesson to our kids that was more than worth the minimal expense. These cabins are likely to become difficult to book on short notice once the word gets out. For any outdoor enthusiasts this area leaves little to be desired. We recommend the E-Town Fish House in Elizabethtown for those wishing to avoid cooking.....Hadowsky family
I can only echo the rave reviews given here! We two grandmas felt just a little guilty for enjoying this lovely spot without the kids - but enjoy it we did. The only thing I could add would be the wonderfully comfortable beds. They were great to climb into after a rigorous day of hiking. But maybe thats a grandma thing. Thanks for your hospitality......Anne
From the time I made the 1st call to the owners to inquire about their treehouses and cabin, I recieved excellent and quick return calls. This was a trip I had planned for my 10 yr old gr grandson and granddaughter who were visiting from Oregon. I was so excited about this journey and the plans made for great conversation with friends/relatives. (I think everyone thought I was out of my mind.) The treehouse was everything and more than I expected. The whole experience of being in that area was refreshing. The treehouses/cabins were very clean. We also enjoyed the feeling of the tree house slightly swinging. The owners, Marty and Elizabeth were awesome. Very informative; they took time with my visitors to show them extra things. Dogs were loved by all. I can't say enough positive things about the whole set-up. It takes you back to life before the the world became consumed with technology. It would be great for the younger generation and the parents. My husband and I are planning to return and stay in one of the cabins in early October.....Carol, Joliet, IL
When asked where we were going on vacation and I responded "a treehouse" people gave me funny looks. It was a great local get-away! The weather turned rainy and cold but we got a little sunshine on Saturday and still had a great time. Our 7 year old boy enjoyed it so much that he didn't want to leave. Great job on the treehouses. Outdoor fun with modern conveniences. The tree swing was a big hit also! Elizabeth kindly greeted us, showed us around, and told us of local areas to visit. We would also recommend the floating restaraunt E-Town in Elizabethtown. We would love to stay here again!....Avery family, Marion IL
We are a family of 2 adults, 2 kids and a dog. We planned on staying 2 days but never wanted to leave and ended up staying 5 days. We had fun at all of the parks around the area but also just enjoyed being at the treehouse. The kids loved the lab puppies and playing outside in the woods. They still talk about wanting to go back soon. We are already making plans to return this fall. Marty and Elizebeth are so nice and will do anything to help you out and make you feel comfortable.....Bowlin's family, Balier, IL
