Airbnb conducted a survey to find out what are the top ten “bucket” list of the people surveyed. To my surprise they said they wanted to live in a tree house before they die. That got me to thinking! My husband is retiring soon and we were trying to figure out how to supplement his income when he retires. As a result of the survey, I came up with the idea of a tree house rental. At the time it was just an idea but as I continued to ponder and research the idea, I decided that it was time to make it a reality; But first I had to convince my husband that it was viable solution to generating income. After much research on tree house rentals I was finally able to convince him to take action. I found out through my research that of all the people renting tree houses, they all, from the basic to the most luxury treehouse, they had a long waiting list of customers. It seems that people are fascinated with tree houses. I think it may have something to do with a longing to experience a childhood dream or, simply experiencing a time when life seemed simpler. But whatever the reason, I was convinced that a treehouse was the way to go.I talked it over with my husband, he became convinced as well. So we decided to move forward with its construction.
I was thinking of a treehouse “bed and breakfast” but because it is being built on our property in a residential area, I decided against it due to the legal restrictions. Other than a day to day rental, I am at this time undecided as to its purpose. I am heavily into health and healing via natural means, and am therefore considering using it for a healing retreat get away.
We started the construction in Feb of 2017 and it is now June and we are nearing the completion of it. We are hoping to have it completed and ready to rent by the latter part of July. It is coming along as we had expected but more beautiful that I imaged. Our home sits on 5 acres and the treeshouse sits on the edge of the 5 acres and adjourns another connecting 5 acres that will be used for exploration purposes. I am so excited and am anticipating opening it up for renting.
If you are one of those people who have always wanted to live in a tree house, one that has all the conveniences of a home in a forest setting, you can get on my waiting list now. Just send me an email and I will get in touch with you when it comes available for rent.
