Suite of three beautifully furnished rooms set among the trees. Just minutes from downtown, this secluded property is an urban retreat like no other. The treehouse provides an intimate, simple and restful retreat for 2 people. The treehouse is the subject of innumerable articles, blogs and was recently featured on Treehouse Masters Ultimate Treehouses and Today Show.

The space

We are honored to have been named Airbnb's "#1 most wish-listed property in the world"!!! Thank you!

The treehouse has a Southern nature - gracious, calming, and comfortable.
Centrally located within the heart of intown Atlanta, the treehouses are a hidden gem. The subject of TV and magazine features including the Today Show, "Treehouse Masters: Ultimate Treehouse IV", Architectural Digest, Travel + Leisure, Harper's Bazaar, and numerous others, they are often described as being the most relaxing, romantic, dreamy and unique place you'll ever stay. What could be better than falling asleep in the trees and waking up to birds singing around you--all within the city limits?

The treehouse consists of 3 separate areas - Mind, Body and Spirit - each connected by rope-bridges. Descriptions of the 3 rooms are below.

Mind - The Sitting Room: Antique furnishings and artifacts including 80 year old windows of pressed butterfly wings, a plaster cast of a Siberian Tiger paw, fossils, a couch and chairs, its a great place to read or talk and has a balcony overlooking an acre of lush woods...

Body - The Bedroom: Sleeps 2. What could be better than a great bed up in the trees? The super comfortable double bed is outfitted with the world's best bedding: Parachute. These cozy linens are made of 100% long-staple Egyptian cotton and pure Linen. They're Oeko-Tex certified, meaning no harmful chemicals or softening synthetics have been used. You'll have your best night's sleep ever here at the Treehouse! The bed is equipped with wheels so it can either be inside the room or rolled out onto a platform that overlooks the stream below. The mattress has a warmer for cool nights and the tin roof makes rain storms something to be enjoyed.

Spirit - The Hammock Deck: Open to the elements and immersed in thick greenery, the deck surrounds the spirited "Old Man", a 165 year old Southern Short-Leaf Pine tree--the largest of the 7 trees that support the treehouse suite and watch over its guests.

BATHROOM IS LOCATED IN THE BASEMENT/LOWER LEVEL OF OUR PRIVATE HOME. GUESTS WILL HAVE EXCLUSIVE ACCESS TO IT DURING THEIR STAY. The treehouses and main house share a lot and are within a 30 second walk to one another.

Guest access

Guests will have free parking in our driveway and exclusive access to the lower floor of the main house, including a full, private, indoor bathroom and shower.

Interaction with guests

Other than showing you around when you arrive and bringing coffee in the morning, we'll completely respect your privacy and leave you alone. However, because the the treehouses and our home share a lot, we are readily available and close by if you need anything.

What do you get a man who has everything for his birthday? A place to relax, unwind, unplug and soak up nature! My husband can't sit still for 5 minutes but because of the comfortable & whimsical surroundings, I was able to get him to completely detach from work and just listen to the birds, crickets, frogs and a lovely rumble of thunder. VERY romantic in deed!

From the moment you turn into the drive way, and get your first glimpse of the tree house, you know you are in a special place! The twinkle of the lights will mesmerize you for the duration of your stay. The sounds of nature will lower your blood pressure, and refresh your soul. Peter is energetic and enthusiastic with a kind soul. His love for what he has created is evident. While he allows his guests peace, and quiet, and the beauty of nature that is so overlooked in the busy world we live in. If you haven't booked yet, don't hesitate for a minute longer!

Whimsical. Dreamy. Memorable. This place is all you see in pictures and much more! I know the scheduling may seem daunting but whatever the wait, it's worth it. In case you're wondering, mosquitos are NOT a problem. You're outside, so of course you'll see ants, or other insects on the trail to the main house for the restroom, but somehow they've managed to keep the treehouse pretty clear. The bed is amazing! You will sleep the deepest and most sound here. You'll never want to leave. Trust, me book now. So glad we did. :)

Thank you Peter! We had such an amazing weekend. Everything about the treehouse and the entire stay was magical and we can't wait to return someday!

We had been looking forward to our visit to the treehouse for years, and so when it clashed with hurricane Irma, we were freaking out that our trip would be cancelled. Luckily Peter is an amazing host who made us feel safe and comfortable, despite the weather, and welcomed us into his home when the wind got too much. Despite the rain, we managed to spend a lot of time in the treehouse and it is every bit as magical and wonderful as the other reviews have described. Whilst it wasn't quite as relaxing as we'd imagined, it was a very memorable experience to be there during the storm. And now we have a good excuse to come back, so we can sleep under the stars in the amazing roll out bed!

Jessica, I so appreciate how open and flexible you were given that the storm and your long-awaited vacation coincided... I felt so bad, but I hope everyone back where you are heard the story of how you guys rode out a hurricane in a treehouse! All the best...! Peter

It took me 2 years to get this booked for our anniversary weekend then had to wait a year for our stay once I was able to catch and opening. It was worth the wait for sure! It is the perfect spot to decompress and enjoy the quiet. The best part is you are minutes from anything you want to see in the city and when you are done you can go back and enjoy the quiet under the stars in a comfy bed. Peter is great and makes a mean cup of coffee. We had so much fun relaxing and unwinding that my husband drew plans up and started to order supplies to build our own treehouse. Thanks for one of the best anniversaries yet!!!

I work in the wine industry and my husband is an environmental activist and 3d photographer. He built the treehouses as an escape within the city and together, we've made it into a Vacation Home at home! We hoped to create a setting that was both secluded and quiet but also warm and welcoming. Many of our favorite times have happened there--from parties with friends to quiet afternoons reading the paper.

But while we love being at home, we equally love traveling. We find that experiencing new places and meeting new people is as exciting to us as being in our treehouse is calming. Through Airbnb, we want to share our hideaway with other travelers who seek adding something special to their trip and hope that they leave feeling like it was something genuinely special!
