Description
The Space

This one of a kind adult sized treehouse and additional cabin have been created from recycled materials and a reclaimed, upcycled barn. In addition to the treehouse and cabin, a vintage restored airstream is also available for rent here on AirBnB https://www.airbnb.ca/rooms/9623115, if you would like to come with more family and friends. It's a MUST SEE and a MUST EXPERIENCE … by going out on a limb and sleeping in a treehouse and in a cabin amongst the trees. It's one of a kind. The treehouse sleeps two in the upper queen bed loft, and the cabin beside the treehouse has a queen bed loft for two more guests. If you would like to bring more guests, it is $100 per night for each additional guest. There is a single day bed in the treehouse, and a pull out sofa in the cabin for two. We also have a 31 ft restored vintage airstream on the property which sleeps 2-4 people. We will be adding the airstream to our airbnb listing shortly. Enjoy 100 acres of forests, fields and groomed walking trails so you may stretch your legs and unwind. The treehouse will quiet your mind and fill your heart. Located 2 hours North West of Toronto, Ontario Canada. The tree house overlooks 100 acres of gorgeousness! A true retreat up in the trees. There's a beautiful front porch with chair hammocks, and an adult sized slide. There are many relaxing hammocks for naps. Designed by award winning designer Lynne Knowlton of DESIGN THE LIFE YOU WANT TO LIVE blog. It is truly a peaceful place to relax and enjoy. Light the wood stove fire, open a good book and chillax'. There are views of the countryside for miles and miles. The true benefit of the tree house is that it is a great place to unwind. No hustle and bustle. It's a wonderful experience to escape to. Please contact us for exact directions. Located 10 minutes from the town of Durham, Ontario and 30 minutes West of Markdale. It's 30 minutes South of Owen Sound and West off of Hwy 6. The quiet, remote setting has the sounds of the birds and the smell of the pine trees. Featured in Style at Home Magazine, TreeHugger, Cottage Life Magazine, Inhabitant, and the Cottage Life television channel as a beautiful retreat. Located within a few moments walk, you will find an additional outdoor kitchen timber frame with dining areas and additional areas to relax by the pool. The area has a fireplace, seating for 12 and dining areas that are so very stunning. All areas are decorated with whimsy and Balinese decor. There are stunning sun umbrellas and breathtaking stone walls surrounding the pool. You won't want to leave. We promise, once you go out on a limb and have the unforgettable experience of the treehouse… you will want to return time and time again !! Please Note: The calendar has been blocked for 2017 and beyond because Michael has a very serious cancer and we can not commit to renting our property at this time. Please return to the listing at a later date for any updates. You can find more information about the listing on Design The Life You Want To Live or on Instagram Lynneknowlton.

Guest Access

The tree house is built on our 100 acre property. Although it is very private and secluded in the trees, it is close to many of our main home features. There is a gorgeous pool area, stunning barn {with a chandelier in it !} and an outdoor kitchen timber frame with built in fireplace. The pool and outdoor kitchen are built within a stone wall foundation of an pre-existing barn. The treehouse has been featured in many online websites like inhabitat & treehugger and on the cottage life television channel as a featured retreat. It is also on our blog at DESIGN THE LIFE YOU WANT TO LIVE by Lynne Knowlton. The area is very quiet and secluded. It is a place to unwind and listen to the peace and quiet of the countryside. Local towns /cities are a minimum of 15 minutes away, so be sure to bring all your personal supplies and plan to stay. Many friends and family have come to visit for a few hours and stayed for days. Ha! It is THAT great. There are many walking trails on the 100 acre property or just sit and relax in the treehouse and breathe the fresh smell of the pine trees. We promise you will LOVE it here. With much love, Lynne and Michael Knowlton

Interaction with Guests

Although the treehouse is on the same property as our home, we prefer to give our guests privacy at the treehouse so they can truly enjoy a relaxing experience. The pool area is a shared space for mingling.

The Neighborhood

There are no visible neighbours … only deer and squirrels :) The treehouse and cabin are nestled in a small forest, overlooking the fields and pond. The pool and outdoor kitchen are also visible from the treehouse.

Getting Around

There is no public transit. A vehicle is a must. We are located in the countryside.

Other Things to Note

The treehouse and additional retreat cabin host four people. Linens, towels and bathroom amenities are provided. Please bring beach towels for the pool. If you have any special requests for anniversaries, birthdays or special occasions … please let us know.. we would love to incorporate a special something for you.

About Michael
Visit Profile
Millions of people are using Airbnb to sleep in strangers' homes, beds, and even couches. They have an amazing selection and you can't find their stuff anywhere else. There is a catch: you often need to contact several hosts to actually get a place to stay, so make sure you give yourself some lead time.
