Awesome property. We stayed in the tree house. So much to see just by walking the property. Lunar sauna was relaxing. Very secluded and private. Definitely would go again.

Our stay at the White Lotus Treehouse was lovely! The property is beautiful and the room was so cozy. I loved having use of the communal kitchen to make breakfast in the morning and relax on the porch. I wish the weather had been better so we could have spent more time outside but I'd love to return sometime.

This was a really unique property and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We stayed in the Treehouse and it was nicely appointed and had everything we needed. Having access to a full kitchen (in the "castle") was nice...we used it one morning to cook ourselves breakfast using fresh eggs from the farm next door (they keep a bowl of them in the fridge for purchase). An Espresso machine was available as well so we treated ourselves to a couple cups. We were out and about so we didn't spend as much time enjoying the amenities at the property but would definitely stay here again!

White Lotus is truly a gem nestled in the hills near Shenandoah National Park and Charlottesville, VA. I stayed here with my husband, parents and friends during the week of my wedding and we had such a great time exploring the outdoor areas and the amazing design of the buildings. My husband and I stayed in the treehouse. It was cozy and rustic; there is a great balcony and lower deck with a grill. In fact, there are many nooks around the property for hanging out, grilling and enjoying company. It was hard to choose where to mingle! We enjoyed the community kitchens for breakfast and had a campfire with firewood provided by the hosts. My guests and I were all very enchanted by the whole experience.
