The space
We are open for stays and disinfect everything and are supremely conscientious about cleanliness. We also practice social distancing and send check in instructions for zero contact. There is not a safer place than in the middle of our private bamboo forest! The Alpaca Treehouse is one of the most wish-listed Airbnbs in the world, honored to be featured in Netflix’s “Worlds Most Amazing Vaction Rentals” and Episode 9 on Netflix’s “Love is Blind.” We were on all Delta’s inflight commercials for a year. We were an Ultimate Treehouse 6 on “Treehouse Masters,” episode found on the Animal Planet website. Also featured on ABC’s Primetime TV Show, "Kevin Probably Saves the World," 3 episodes of the VH1 show "Love & Hip Hop." A multitude of music videos filmed here (Trey Songz and Mayday Parade were highlights), indie movies, loads of commercial videography, still photography, intimate events, and weddings. We are a rescue farm of rescued llamas, alpacas, chickens, dogs, and cats.

Children over 12 only please.

We have the ability to sleep 2 guests but PLEASE keep in mind this is a treehouse, not a tree-mansion. It’s a 12 x12 space with an 8 x12 loft. We have a queen sized mattress in the loft and a sofa on the main floor (not a sofa bed).

All photography and videography, ceremonies have special rates, contracts, set hours, and insurance and MUST BE scheduled in advance. Arrangements must be made PRIOR to your arrival. Failure to adhere to this policy WILL result in cancellation of your booking without refund. We don't allow parties in the tree house, but can handle small parties in the Bamboo Barn. Message for rates please.

Also on the farm property, two beautifully designed and appointed brick cottages with views of the barn, llamas, and alpacas are on Airbnb and welcome kids of all ages. Llama Stay Farm Cottage sleeps 7 and is a large beautiful home. Likewise, Luxury Llama Cottage sleeps 5 and is also outfitted with antiques, oil paintings, and comfortable furniture. Links to these accommodations can be found at alpacatreehouse. Dot. Com.

In our treehouse, you wake up on the queen size memory foam bed in a climate-controlled loft and peer out the large skylight at the swaying zen bamboo. Look to the Southern gable and take in the gorgeous jewel tones of the stained glass and see the bamboo through the French doors. Look to the forest floor to see grazing alpacas and llamas. We also have our beautiful and comfortable swinging rope bed (Bali bed) decked out with a slew of comfy pillows and a full sized mattress!

The treehouse is built with all reclaimed architectural antiques, so staying here is like living a jewel box, an art project. Roosters crow nearby because you are on a working farm, in City of Atlanta. You are 15 feet above the forest floor, tucked into the middle of a 80- year old bamboo forest. And there are beautiful Bolivian suri alpacas (like a small llamas with dreadlocks) roaming: Paloma Piper, Caitlin Tastee, Elfie Fay Von Picklesprite, and Sunny Shevoun. We also have five gentle, calm llamas named Dali Llama and Llama Mia Figaro (Figgy), Campari (camel colored), Sophie (bay brown), and baby llama Llyra wandering about grazing.

This treehouse was built with reclaimed architectural salvaged elements so you have the feeling you are in a historic room with the multi-colored walls of heart of pine beaded board. But the two skylights, with views of the bamboo canopy above, shed dappled light through the vaulted ceiling and remind you that's it's not the late eighteen hundreds. Some of the beaded board was reclaimed from Civil War era homes.

The treehouse features several pieces of turn of the century stained glass, heart of pine floors from an old nineteen oh five church, Victorian French doors that open onto a wrap- around catwalk, a composting toilet, heat and air, and electrical throughout. You'll want to sip your coffee or a glass of wine on the large treehouse porch, held up by black locust trees, still sporting their bark. Or maybe you'll want to walk around the deck of the tree house to check out the bamboo forest or the alpacas and llamas. The tree house roof is clad in eighteen sixty-one South Georgia barn tin, so if it rains, you'll have a night of gentle percussive rhythm (we sprayed insulation foam so the treehouse is energy efficient and the roof not too loud). Our stairs are live-edge heart cedar and quite beautiful.

The treehouse is wrapped in cedar trim and vintage heart of pine siding salvaged off an old Atlanta house (the porch, so it wasn't painted). We furnished our tree house in antiques and we have a composting toilet, a small fridge, a Keurig coffee maker, 3 gallons of potable water, and an antique enamelware wash basin to wash your face.

The fully functional (running water) marble bathroom is a short walk down a rustic path through the bamboo forest. The marble bathroom boasts a gorgeous walk-in shower, a "no rules" toilet, and a vintage restored sink.

Contact us if your also interested in having a wedding here (they are so magical), doing engagement photography, shooting music videos, hosting small events in the Bamboo Barn or shooting a television show. These have special rates and terms. But we are happy to accommodate.

Where you’ll be

Atlanta, Georgia, United States

The Neighborhood of East Atlanta
The neighborhood is residential but we are a working farm, so you'll hear the crowing of roosters although somewhat muffled by the bamboo. But be mindful that you're in City of Atlanta and you may hear the occasional siren or traffic sounds during your stay. You'll also hear the birds that live in the bamboo and the humming of alpacas. This is a treehouse, in a forest, so you'll see bugs from time to time. We spray but you're in a bamboo forest. Think glamping! There are a ton of delicious eateries and bars in East Atlanta Village: Argosy, Holy Taco, The Shed, We Suki Suki and the Buford HWY Collective of amazing food vendors, Thai-Sushi, Soba, Midway, Tomatillos, Grant Central Pizza, and The Elder Tree (Irish Pub). We also love Poor Hendrix up on Hosea L. Williams Drive.
