The Treehouses at Owls Hollow
Treehouses capture the imagination of young and old as we long for adventure and a return to nature. But what was once reserved for our youth is now a place to live out that adventure or, at the very least, enjoy a unique and intimate connection to nature while dreaming of adventure.
A magical night spent in a treehouse
At first glance, I almost miss eyeing my retreat for the night. Before me, a winding staircase stretches above, drawing my attention to my temporary treetop abode for the night. There before me, standing in a grove of walnut trees, is The Royal Roost Treehouse at Owl Hollow.
Against the blue sky, tree branches creak in the light autumn breeze. I ascend the steps, anxious to discover more closely the modern yet woodland treehouse beckoning my visit.
From my first step on the decking, I am in awe of my surroundings. From my position above the ground, my view is breathtaking. In one direction, there is an open meadow, and looking the other way, there is a dense grove of trees with rays of sun peeking through the canopy.
Although the treehouse is secluded from the bustle of life, life here is complete and lovely. Furthermore, the grounds teem with wildlife; birds chirp, squirrels scurry across limbs, and I even spot a doe peeking from behind a tree trunk. Here, I discover a serenity and solitude rarely found in today’s typical lodging.
Once inside, the treehouse is cozy and rustic yet luxurious. Every amenity I could need has been considered, including wifi, AC, and heating. Above me, I see a loft with a queen bed and a bunk, and adorning the cedar-cased windows are intricate carvings that resemble tree branches.
As night falls, the serenade of crickets interrupted only by the occasional hoot owl lulls me fast asleep.
When morning comes, sunlight peaks through the trees as I lay in bed listening to the trickle of the creek below. Bluejays, cardinals, and woodpeckers serenade me with “Good morning.”
The adventure doesn’t stop at the treehouses
