Great location
94% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Pet friendly! This second- story, custom built cabin in the middle of a cherry orchard has huge windows that allow for great natural light. Polished concrete countertops and floors with radiant heat. Sleeps 6 people max. One bath. Shared hot tub. Large decks. Basic kitchen. Please read this listing completely.

The space
Up north at its best! The Treehouse sits on a pond among the birch and pines in a working cherry orchard. Built by my husband and me, with a whole lot of help from many friends, it clearly has love in the details. Large windows bring the daylight in and allow for dreamy star- gazing - maybe even the northern lights!

Six person outdoor hot tub is shared with the cabin also on property.

Locally made art. Access to trails for hiking, groomed cross- country ski trails, and mountain biking all around the orchard and ponds. Minutes to Lake Michigan and Torch Lake beaches. The cabin makes a great getaway for couples and families. There is a sleeping loft which can sleep four and a private bedroom which sleeps two. It’s not a big place, so don’t expect tons of room to roam inside.

Limited kitchen has a smart oven, countertop two burner range, microwave, sink, coffee maker, electric frying pan and refrigerator. We provide pots and pans, knives, and table settings.

The Treehouse can be rented in conjunction with The Cabin at Rocky Top Farms. Towels and linens are provided.

You must have four- wheel drive to access the Treehouse in the winter, or plan to hike the 1/4 mile from the barn. If you have to be towed out, the cost is between $50- $100.

Please note! This is a cabin and not a traditional treehouse! We don't mean to mislead with the name- The Treehouse is what we have always called it. *Please read this listing entirely!

This cabin isn’t a hotel. It’s got heritage, patina and whimsy. It doesn’t have brand-new anything. (The kitchen table is almost 75 years old, and was in my Grandmother’s cottage.) It’s a creative and fun place, that is an eclectic mix of character and style. We love it, and we hope you do too.

Guest access
`Guests have access to the hiking and biking trails around the orchard and woods around our large property. We do not allow motorized vehicles on the farm due to liability. Do not drive around the orchard. No shooting.

You may fish in the pond. You may use the canoe.

There is also a disc golf course on the west side of the property.
The hot tub is shared with the little cabin, but isn't too busy.
We groom trails for xc ski and snowshoeing around the orchard and thru the woods.
Dogs are allowed- we ask for a $30 dog fee to be left in the treehouse at the time of departure.

Other things to note
It is required that guests have a four wheel drive vehicle in the winter and early spring! Our driveway is no joke!

Guests must be able to climb steps to enjoy this space. We do welcome small children, but parents, please be aware- there are two sets of steps and a concrete floor in the treehouse. If you have a toddler, it may not be the safest house for them.

The water here is well- water. It is dually filtered, but it still has a yellowish cast due to tannins in the water. It has been recently tested, and is good to drink. Those used to heavily chlorinated city water may choose to bring their own drinking water.

Please also note- there is no wi-fi or internet here. Cell phones generally get good reception.

Location

Ellsworth, Michigan, United States

We adore our very rural neighborhood! Just a couple miles from both Torch Lake and Lake Michigan-beaches abound! Ask us about our favorite spots. Hiking and paddling opportunities are plentiful. We are not far from XC, downhill skiing and snowboarding in the winter. Rocky Top Farms is centrally located between Traverse City and Petoskey. We are located just off 31N. Our nearest towns are Elk Rapids, Bellaire, and Charlevoix, and East Jordan. The closest villages are Torch Lake, Ellsworth, and Central Lake.
There are so many things to check out while visiting- or- just laze around the farm!

During your stay
We usually do not meet our guests when they arrive. You will be given check in instructions via Airbnb messenger. Our family may be around periodically, working on the garden, etc., but we give our guests a lot of privacy.

We are always happy to make recommendations about great local restaurants, beaches, trails, etc. I am available by text anytime between 8am and 9pm.

There is another cabin on the property (the little cabin), which is nearby, and also listed on Airbnb. Pine trees do a good job of separating the spaces for privacy.
