Surely the place you dreamed of as a child! The treehouse sits above a beautiful mountain stream. Close to parks, art and culture, great views, and restaurants and dining. You’ll love the treehouse because of the romantic coziness. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and families (with kids).

The space
Idyllic 600 sq. ft. artist’s treehouse deep in the forest, 35 feet above a mountain stream with gently cascading waterfalls – just 45 minutes northeast of Asheville, NC. Just 45 miles west of Boone, NC. Perched high in the sky, this home offers sleeping for up to six. Follow the floating log staircase to a romantic upstairs loft with Romeo and Juliet balcony. Lounge in the window seat there, enjoying the best view in the house. Or enjoy the cozy sleeping loft tucked away off the living room. It's the perfect place to curl up with a good book. Stroll along the wrap around deck for magnificent views of the stream immediately below. Sit by the crackling wood stove and enjoy it's cozy warmth. The modern kitchen was made for a master chef. All the cookware, organic spices, and oils are provided to whip up an amazing meal. This is the place you surely dreamed of when you were a child!
Designed and built by two imaginative and experienced natural builders, this tiny treehouse hamlet sits on 6 wooded acres with south – facing slopes at a comfortable elevation of 2,150 feet. It is near Mt. Mitchell, the tallest mountain east of the Mississippi and only twenty minutes away from the renowned Penland School of Crafts and the community of Celo, in Yancey County, where more artists per capita live than anywhere in the U.S. The Blue Ridge Parkway will get you within 20 miles of the home. The newly paved highways take you the rest of the way.

Where you’ll be

Green Mountain, North Carolina, United States

The treehouse sits on a completely private, 6 acre, wooded lot. It is within 2 miles of the quaint town of Green Mountain which features a genuine general store and post office.
The neighboring town of Burnsville is about 1,700 people and is nestled in a valley surrounded by the highest peaks in eastern America, including Mt. Mitchell. It's small downtown is dominated by the Town Square with towering trees. Burnsville is located 35 miles northeast of Asheville, along the Mt. Mitchell Scenic Byway.
The Mount Mitchell Crafts Fair transforms the streets around Burnsville’s town square into a festival affair for craft and art lovers, with more than 150 juried crafters displaying and selling.
The annual fall Yancey County Dream Home Tour benefits Mayland Community College and features showcase homes in and around Burnsville.
Our favorite dining spot downtown is the Garden Deli with a fantastic array of high quality sandwiches, plus dinner entrées on weekend nights (closed Sundays). Their beautiful outdoor dining is right on the Town Square, surrounded by lush plantings and flowers.
Many love to drive around to find the area's 200 Quilt Blocks installed on the sides of barns and buildings throughout the countryside and villages. Nine driving trails take you to view the vividly painted squares. In downtown Burnsville, see the Quilt Block Sundial, the largest vertical sundial in North Carolina and the only quilt block sundial in the world, on the side of the Yancey Common Times Journal building near the Town Square. The eight-foot by eight-foot wooden structure features three sets of numbers for telling time: for daylight savings time, for standard time and one for local apparent time. A plaque beside the block explains how to use the sundial.
The TRAC (Toe River Arts Council) Gallery downtown at 102 West Main Street exhibit local artists with changing exhibits and a great gallery shop. With work from over 100 artists in a variety of media: clay, glass, jewelry, painting, photography, fiber, wood, sculpture, mixed media, and more. The quality and diversity of art in the area is outstanding. TRAC sponsors the Toe River Studio Tour twice a year on the second weekend in June, the first weekend in December. Over 100 studios and galleries are represented in this free, self-guided tour.
The famous art school Penland School of Crafts is just 13 miles east. About 10 miles east of downtown is the energyXchange with artist studios powered by landfill gas. Both are have galleries open most days. The Parkway Playhouse in Burnsville is a small professional theatre with shows from April through December.
Yancey County (where Burnsville is located) is full of old and new Agri-Tourism experiences. Visit local farmers markets and farms to purchase fresh produce of the season & delicious homemade treats. And in late November and December, cut your own mountain grown Christmas tree.
The scenic Blue Ridge Parkway is 19 miles away, via NC Highway 80 south. Go five miles north to Crabtree Falls and 11 miles south to the entrance of Mt. Mitchell State Park. The great village of Spruce Pine is just 14 miles east on US 19.
