Weekend in a tree house

tiny fern forest treehouse airbnb

Jamie pointed this out in a comment earlier this week: it's a tree house in Vermont -- that you can rent.

The "Tiny Fern Forest Treehouse" -- in Lincoln, Vermont (near Middlebury) -- is available via AirBnB. From the description:

The treehouse is indeed a cozy little place perched on four maples 30 feet above a blanket of ferns. Access is by a ramp 70 ft. from the main house, where you'll have a private bathroom with shower. This quiet place in the woods has heat, electricity, and a small refrigerator. The main floor has a single bed, or CLIMB THE LADDER to the loft with a queen sized futon and down comforter. Enjoy the comfy reading rocker or sit on the deck and gaze at Mt. Abraham and the Green Mountain National Forest. The hot tub is a sweet new addition to the place.

There are a bunch photos at the profile page. It's $149/night and includes breakfast. It's also booked up/unavailable until December.

The reviews -- of both the tree house and its hosts -- are overwhelmingly positive. (Seriously, we don't think we've ever seen online reviews that positive. We're not sure what these people are putting in the pancakes.)

Update: Sebastien's stayed at the tree house and has an account of his visit (and photos), along with some thoughts on using AirBnB.

I have been dying to go here!

I rented it a couple of months ago, there was nothing to add in the pancakes, the breakfast was simply delicious.

Sounds so charming. Would love to go there.Wonder if there are tree fairies staying when the guests are gone. Two things i didn't see are if there is a bathroom upstairs,and if there are shades on the windows.
My only concerns are if lightening, and bears would be threats?

@mg: yes, there are tree fairies I'm sure, since I saw one steal my underpants. Or was it a gnome? There is no bathroom in the treehouse, but you do have a nice private bathroom (and extra bedroom) in the main house which you can see in the background. Or you can use... something else. I don't recall shades on the windows, is it a privacy issue with respect to the aforementioned bears? In case of lightning... I mean... it's a treehouse... it's made of tree parts :)

It's not a tree house, but this place in VT is also pretty amazing: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/792282

It's smack dab in between North Bennington and Manchester on 7A.

We almost rented this place in march! Looks amazing.
