Spring break was among us. We had no plans, but we wanted to get away. My sister and her family had visited a park with authentic treehouses in Glenmont, Ohio not once but twice, so we decided this would be a good time to check them out. WE ARE IN LOVE WITH TREEHOUSES NOW!! This was such a great time to go away, unplug and have some quality family time. Our kids loved it and so did we. We didn’t want to leave! Read along, view the pictures and escape to this lovely trend of glamping.
Most of you are probably aware of the hit show Treehouse Masters on the Discovery Channel. Pete Nelson is the designer and star of the hit series and built 2 out of the 6 treehouses available to stay in at The Mohicans. Each treehouse contains a journal that guests can fill out. Within the journal, I discovered Matthew McConaughey had stayed in the same treehouse we stayed in last summer with his family while in Cleveland wrapping up a film! See a clip from the Kelly & Ryan show of him briefly discussing it here!
We stayed late March so there was snow on the ground. It was chilly out, but we still had the best time. Every treehouse is equipped with beds, a full bathroom and an outdoor shower during the warmer months, a tv with DVD player only so we brought a few movies to watch in the evening. Wireless was minimal so phones were pretty much off limits. We played board games, hiked and explored. I surprised the kids with their own outdoorsy themed Lego sets that they spent time building together. There is a grill and firepit with a few of the treehouses, so we did grill out a few times. Inside is a small kitchen area with a microwave, mini fridge/freezer, 2 burner electric cooking element, coffee maker, dishware…even wine glasses…..etc! Full heat and A/C as well. We were not cold!! We’ve decided that next time we won’t bring as much food. Instead, we plan to visit the little market on the way in to pick a few items up to make packing a little less hectic. Steps and a drawbridge will lead you to your treehouse where you’ll flip the cute little sign to occupied. Our treehouse, the Old Pine, also had a cute swing hanging down the bottom that we all had fun with. It’s truly a wonderful experience for families, couples, girl trips, etc. Check out the website, channel your old soul and book your stay in one of the treehouses at The Mohicans!
