About This Listing
"A treehouse, a freehouse, a secret you and me house, a high up in the leafy branches, cosy as can be house" -- Shel Silverstein
The treehouse is indeed a cozy little place perched on four maples 30 feet above a blanket of ferns. Access is by a ramp 70 ft. from the main house, where you'll have a private bathroom with shower. This quiet place in the woods has heat, electricity, and a small refrigerator. The main floor has a single bed, or CLIMB THE LADDER to the loft with a queen sized futon and down comforter. Enjoy the comfy reading rocker or sit on the deck and gaze at Mt. Abraham and the Green Mountain National Forest. The hot tub is a sweet new addition to the place.
For those less adventurous, there is a guestroom in the main house with a double bed. We have no pets and are very neat and tidy but you can bring your dog if you want. All linens and little complimentary toiletries are provided, and you'll enjoy a generous continental breakfast in the sunny dining room in the morning.

This was hands down our best Airbnb experience yet! The treehouse could not be cuter and it's the perfect place to unwind. The surrounding scenery is absolutely gorgeous and it's close to good hiking, restaurants, shops and cafes.
But what really makes this place special are the hosts, Ellie and H. They truly love welcoming people in their home and treated us to the best conversation and the most delicious breakfasts. Their kindness and energy is contagious, and they are what the Airbnb community is all about. We hope to be back many more times :)
My girlfriend and I had such a wonderful time in the treehouse. We were hoping to get away from the city and this provided a fully immersed escape in the woods. Ellie and H were both incredible hosts -- the conversations were delightful and they were so helpful with suggestions of what to do and where to go. The breakfast was a full Vermont feast with its yogurt, berries, eggs, waffles, syrup, watermelon, grapefruit, fresh juice, coffee, locally made muffins and so much more. Thank you for being such incredible hosts and we hope to be back soon!
I had such an incredible stay (one of the more memorable weekends of my life) at H and Ellie's Tiny Fern Forest Treehouse. Not only is the treehouse exquisite (and insanely cozy), but H and Ellie were two of the kindest, most hospitable hosts I have ever stayed with. My boyfriend I were warmly greeted as we pulled into the driveway, and we were offered wine and cheese that evening with an opportunity to sit down and get to know H and Ellie (two lovely, brilliant, creative artists). As if that wasn't enough and to top it all off, we were fed a beautiful breakfast (waffles, fresh berries, yogurt, homemade granola, and fresh coffee, tea, and juice). We were in absolute awe. We spent our time exploring their beautiful property, cozying up in the treehouse playing board games, dining at the Bobcat Cafe (awesome brewery pub), and soaking in a bubbling hot tub under the stars. It was a weekend to remember, and we can't wait to be back.
The treehouse was really cute and fun. We really enjoyed our stay and appreciated all of the time spent talking with Ellie and Harrison. Thank you for your hospitality and for the nice experience!
Beautiful spot for a restful & peaceful weekend - and delicious breakfasts! Ellie and H are kind & accomodating hosts. We would love to come back!
We were so happy to return to the Tiny Fern Forest Treenhouse for our second time--and it was just as fabulous as we remembered. The Treehouse is a truly magical place--no matter the weather. H and Ellie are fantastic and warm hosts, and their welcoming us to their home (and Vermont!) makes the trip so special.

We designed and built this house 12 years ago. Son Will and H built the treehouse over the course of three summers. H was also a high school teacher and retired in 2009.
