Stay in Tree House Built by Treehouse Master Pete Nelson ~ off the Grid

Family-friendly cabin in Brooksville
We have three treehouses strategically placed to give you privacy and that are close enough that you can rent out all three.

What makes the Aliyah unique is that the snuggle palace is 30 feet high and is our tallest treehouse. It’s great for when you’re a family that likes to spread out. In the main cabin is a full size bed and across the swinging bridge is a bunk bed with a twin & full size bed. Separated sleeping quarters.

The hickory is unique in that it has a play ground, consisting of a slide, a swing and two hammocks. It has a cozy nook with lots of games. This treehouse is best for two adults and 4 kids that want to be in the same room at bed time.

This one which is the Pete is unique and has a wood burning stove. It has the biggest floor plan with lots of open space with an over sized loft with a king size bed. Best suited for Pete Nelson treehouse lovers & a couple with two small kids.


For those wanting "off the grid nature experience" The treehouse has electricity, lights, full kitchenette, and back up space heater. You will stay super cozy with a favorite feature - an inside wood- burning stove. Make sure to watch our show ~The Kentucky Climbers Cottage prior to coming. People say it makes the stay more enjoyable.

The best feature of this tree house are the barn doors that bring the inside in.

Imagine you start your morning enjoying your breakfast or a cup of coffee in front of a crackling fire next to the wood burning stove in the middle of the woods in a treehouse! Head outside to hike the rolling hills, check out the views and solitude of old growth trees, nature and forest.

A fully stocked kitchenette inside has everything you need to cook all your meals including 3-gallon tank of water, pots and pans, plates, bowls, and utensils. With a portable sink for clean up

Sleeping arrangements include king size bed on second floor and on first floor is pull down sofa with bedding in the sofa. There is also a air mattress in the sofa. This tree house would sleep two adults and three small kids.

With the treehouse having electricity, you have cool stained glass lights, ceiling fan and air!!

...You can also cook up a delicious barbecue dinner on our gas grill outside on large deck with comfortable seating that overlooks the valley.

Venture down to the hammock below the tree house for peaceful relaxation.
A fire-pit is strategically placed to view from the huge deck or comfortable seating to roast marsh mellows

As 5x superhosts we take pride in details to make your trip memorable! From specific local favorites to providing maps of the farm to offering one of a kind guided tree climbs. Our tree houses are unique in that they are tucked in the woods and each tree house has a different theme. We welcome children and pets!

Hike our 200 acres of trails! The heart trail takes you around the property and is 3.3 miles and leads you to a large trillium 3 person hammock where you can enjoy lunch.

OUR NEWEST is the hobbit tree house trail where you can find yourself immersed in finding the 10 hobbit houses. Make your way to the end of the trail to make a wish in the creek located by the oldest tree on the property.

Find the tree pod that hold two adults alongside a creek. You can use for picnic, "sit spot" to take in nature, read a book, nap or just use as secret hideaway. Drum the ceiling or floor with your hands and instantly you are inside a big drum!

We now have a trail called Jacobs ladder built in memory of my late nephew. We encourage guests to bring or make a chime to hang along the trail in memory of someone. At top of trail you will find benches to spend time with your loved one. They sit next to a tree we called memory of my niece.

The five tree grove is available to you to book a unique one of a kind guided tree climb. Here our professional facilitator will take you to the top for the best views! You can learn all the tree tricks including coming down upside down. Or just hang out in the GIANT green net!

Kids can go on scavenger hunt to find the 5 ponds, explore an abandoned 1800s settlers log cabin, and wade, hike and play in several cool creeks! Bring your fishing poles!

CHECK OUT THE NEW tree house manual with loads of invitations to connect you to yourself, nature and others.

For the wood burner you can have your wood delivered right to the tree house for $30.00 a load (25 pieces) or bring your own. The wood burner will heat up the entire tree house. You also have access to small heater as a supplemental.

This TreeHouse is recommended for...nature lovers, people who seek time away from technology, that love to play, adventure enthusiasts and appreciate unique places to stay.

Guests have their own bathhouse with toilet, sink, shower at entry of property about 400 feet from the tree house and for quick restroom trips a compost toilet 10 second walk outside the tree house. There is no running water in the tree house. We have a three gallon tank to wash your hands, do dishes and for cooking.

Other safety considerations of this tree house. The steps to the second floor is a ship ladder. We recommend you be in good health and physical condition. There is no bathroom inside.

We do not recommend this adventure for complainers or whiners! Please read through this entire description before booking.

Check in to treehouse and or property is 4PM. Early check ins to property or tree house can be prearranged for 30.00 organization/expedite fee or we recommend booking two nights to fully take advantage of all the property has to offer.

Please take note*** If you love Wildlife and do not mind critters. The tree house is in the middle of the woods you may encounter a mouse, wasp, bees, ticks, deer, turkey, flies, ants, water bugs, hear coyotes, and owls especially out on the trails. This is their home too! We ask that you be a person that respects wildlife.

We use natural deterrents that work to keep critters out of the tree house. Since part of the adventure are the famous barn doors that open to the outside occasionally one may sneak in. We recommend not leaving the barn doors open when you leave the tree house for a hike or overnight since flying insects love the tree house.

**A favorite of guests is visiting the Historical town of Augusta Ky. Childhood home to George Clooney. The Irish Pub is a great place to eat (call ahead for open hours) and have a ice cream after at the general store across the street. For more fine dining we recommend the beehive tavern that overlooks the Ohio river.

Take a magical ferry ride across river and visit small town of Ripley. Find a place to eat along the river. You can take bridge back to Maysville and visit their historical downtown. Eat at Parc Cafe-A Italian cafe replica or LILJumbo. When you head out you may want to stop for breakfast at Donna's Mom and Pop in Brooksville Ky.

The Tree house is our dream come true. I wanted a treehouse since I was 10 years old. I believed it would bring me peace. I would play in the woods with my siblings imagining this treehouse ...bordering it with small branches, using rocks as our furniture and moss as our carpet. I never let go of having this space and thought about it often.

When Bill and I started our dream company EarthJOY Tree adventures in 2007. Whereas we take clients to the top of trees on ropes. As part of this venture we wanted to give them another experience. Why not be able to stay in a treehouse too??

We set off to take Pete Nelsons LEARN HOW TO BUILD A TREEHOUSE in 2009 workshop.

After the workshop we looked high and low for the perfect property to have this dream come true. We ran into many obstacles one being not able to afford it or not the right trees.

When we saw Pete on Animal planet I thought I would just apply for the fun of it. We didn't even have a place. When they called and accepted our application I called Dad. I asked him if we could build a treehouse on his 200 acre farm. He laughed and then said YES! He said he was tired of running two farms and his dream of having a huge cattle farm would just have to be turned into building a few treehouses.

Animal Planet wanted to share this story and hence our episode is famous and called "THE KENTUCKY CLIMBERS COTTAGE" After three years they still air it on Treehouse Masters/AP.

December of 2014 marks the year my childhood dream finally came true. Not only do I mark off time to enjoy my treehouse myself.. I also set aside time for my Womens workshops and our treeclimbing clients. They not only have an incredible experience via a guided tree climb they also get the full immersion of being held by 10 trees in a TREEHOUSE!

The adventure begins on the journey to the treehouse. As you wind your way through the beautiful back roads you can stop over at Augusta for a romantic dinner and a walk along the Ohio River.

The treehouse is secluded and tucked in the woods so you feel like you are off the grid. It has a propane stove inside for simple meals and a gas grill outside for more elaborate meals.

Be sure to watch the story behind the treehouse on Animal Planet -The Kentucky Climbers Cottage

5/5 Excellent

Birthday getaway in winter
When we found this pete Nelson treehouse we thought heck yes, bucket list. We were a bit concerned about warmth and really prepared but the wood stove was awesome and we were actually too warm at night. The place has what you need plus as long as you think primitive vs convenience lodging. It was great and the trails were fun. The stars amazing. And the cell coverage better than expected. We'd definitely come back in spring or fall to expand on our wonderful winter retreat.

5/5 Excellent

With social distancing this was the perfect getaway. The treehouse was very cool and convenient. Loved sitting on the deck, laying in the hammock and our night by the campfire.

5/5 Excellent

Sirenity in the trees!
Another wonderful weekend with friends! We even attempted the tree climb-! The fall temps were great for a hike and the fireplace was great and kept us very warm. Love the Pete Nelson, hope to be back next year, I highly recommend any of the Ky climbers treehouses. They're all just great!

Loved it!
We absolutely loved staying in the Pete Nelson treehouse! Everything was wonderful - from the first instructions/directions we received, to the property, to the amenities, and of course the treehouse itself! We had a great family get-away - nice to unplug, grill out, enjoy nature, etc. Hoping to come back next year and stay again! Thanks for everything!
